Critic Reviews for Fritz the Cat
Excellent animation and montage shore up a plot which has a few howls, several chuckles and many smiles.
The results, inevitably, were disappointing -- Bakshi just didn't have the money to make it right.
Despite some ingenious effects, a generally trivial exercise that never matches the punch of the original.
Aficionados of Crumb's work weren't enthralled by the movie when it came out, and time hasn't been kind to it.
Audience Reviews for Fritz the Cat
A crude, surreal and darkly comedy. Fritz the Cat it's a real classic of the underground films, with a political background, Bakshi's work presents a weird animated New York in the 60's, full of hippie fashion, free sex, marijuana culture, racism and social problems. The "stud cat" Fritz have a view of all the society and make a personal trip, in based of his on philosophy, always meeting strange characters like: a heroin addict rabbit, terrorist radicals, unprofessionals cops, intellectual New York people and etc, etc, etc... Sometimes too screwball, dumb and overblown, but Fritz The Cat is an unique and remarkable animated film with a good soundtrack. Disturbing and maddening. Fresh.
Im not sure what this is, but I thought it was okay
