Ralph Bakshi, 78 mins, USA, 1972

He's x-rated and animated! Director Ralph Bakshi delivers his take on Robert Crumb's notorious, side-splittingly funny underground comic of the same name.

With an emphasis on sexual and social chaos, Fritz the Cat is a paean to the highs and lows of 60s counterculture, (American Cinémathèque). The first major animated motion picture to receive an X-rating, audiences flocked on its initial release. Breaking ground for animation as a subversive and adult art form, the film became a midnight movie staple and a forerunner for cult cinemas as a recognisable and marketable genre. Fritz the Cat heavily influenced a variety of contemporary animators including John Kricfalusi.
