Movie of the Day: Fritz the Cat

Today movie of the day is 1972’s Fritz the Cat directed by Ralph Bakshi. Considered to my the first X-rated cartoon in the United States proving that cartoons are not just meant for kids.


This is Ralph Bakshi’s first full length movie  and one of my favorite moviesFritz_the_Cat_soundtrackThe movie was loosely  based on Robert Crumb’s Fritz the Cat cartoon however Crumb and the filmmakers did not see eye to eye on the film’s content and Crumb is not a fan of the film.


However when the movie was released it became a wildly successful hit and led way for other mature humor cartoons.


“We’re not rated X for nothin, baby!”
