For the fans and even cretors of Anthropomorphic webcomics, do any of you remember the art of Ralph Bakshi (The guy who did COOL WORLD) and his cartoon Fritz The Cat? Or am I dating myself?

These were the kinds of shows I watched as a kid (Or attempted to through the bad reception) on cable while my parents went to sleep.

Haven't seen too many adult brand anthropomorphic titles quite like this…

Don't forget he also made the animated version of (Part 1 of) The Lord of the Rings.

Personally, I always thought Fritz would have made a great Smeagol!

Actually, Robert Crumb created Fritz the Cat, and he was pissed off as all get-out with what Bakshi did with the film, so when the Nine Lives of Fritz the Cat was made, Crumb went and killed Fritz off so that no more movies could be made.

Bakshi's art has always been hit-or-miss to me. Sometimes he was amazing, and other times it seemed he did below his skill level.
A Roll of the Dice now with full-size pages!

John Clyde now with ten times the tacky Hawaiian shirts!

This, of course, was back in the days before Hollywood invented the prequel!

Wish they'd do an animated version of Omaha The Cat Dancer.

I always liked what Bakshi did with Wizards better.

Yeah, but Bakshi wasn't even involved with Nine Lives. I've never seen the sequel, but I hear it wasn't very good.

I saw the first Fritz in an animation class a few years back and it's pretty tame now. Yeah, there's lots of boobs and weenies floating around and furry orgies galore….I guess when it was shown back then in '72, when the only thing around was Disney, it would have been pretty shocking.

Yes, to this day, the death scene of Fritz the Cat's friend, the crow STILL amazes me. Phenomenal pacing and imagery.

Some of Bashki's earlier works are best like Street Fight and American Pop.
