      What to know

      Critics Consensus

      Fritz the Cat's gleeful embrace of bad taste can make for a queasy viewing experience, but Ralph Bakshi's idiosyncratic animation brings the satire and style of Robert Crumb's creation to vivid life. Read critic reviews

        Sex, Sex, Sex, Orgy, Violence, Misogyny, Cats, Crows. It's an experimental film from Bakshi, it doesn't make any sense at all, but at least it wasn't boring. Besides it's the first X rated animation film anyway, should give it some credits.

        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.
