Fritz the Cat is a 1972 animated film written and directed by the legendary Ralph Bakshi. It was based on the character by the famous underground cartoonist Robert Crumb. Crumb hated this film so much he actually killed off Fritz himself in a later comic he drew. Regardless of Crumb's views on this film, it is an excellent animated depiction of the wildness of the late 1960s as witnessed in inner city New York and across America. Fritz is an NYU student and literal cool cat who embraces whatever crosses his path, especially if it's easy sex and drugs. He stumbles through the underground worlds of the Black Panthers and the Hell's Angels before ending up with a group of radical hippies that leave him holding a bomb that will blow up a refinery and most likely kill him...This film was the first ever X rated feature length animated film.
