Once the shock value of seeing an adult cartoon subsides, we are left with just another boring movie.

You'll just find it at best boring, and at worst, offensive.

Our hero, Fritz, is a bored college student who decides he's had enough of doing what's expected of him and goes on to explore the wide world around him.

Propaganda at Its Nastiest .

The constant snappy pace, inspired sense of merry anarchy, and groovy syncopated score further enhance this film's overall infectiously wild'n'wacky buzz.

I thought it was a little bit boring and not very funny.

At the time, there was as much confusion among these three as between any one of them and the Nixonites.

Then in a Hippie-Drug-Room the find a bathroom, and f*** around (entertaining)chapter two is about the problems of black people (wich are crows) in harlem.

the film makes up for no plot with....

would create, and finally, the colors, in four scenes, blend in with the background; when the characters are smoking, to Fritz's pointless hallucinations, when Bertha the Crow shoves joints into his mouth, the scene where he goes back to his dorm and sets his exam notes on fire, and a random sequence with a bird who was snapping his fingers to '60's music.

I enjoyed this animated film because it was slow paced and could be easily watched over a pint or something more sedatory.

I was never more happy to be proved wrong, as it turned out to be a surprisingly deep coming of age story.

" the stoner comedy and psychedelic adventures of horny feline Fritz spoke to me well enough to ensure this was one heck of an enjoyable "trip" of a movie.

The rest of the characters ranging from just there to completely pointless....

Drab...

There is no script, there is no plot or scenes that will help the backbone of the story if there is one.

Well, I can't say it's exempt from criticism; the film has its flaws, both technically and chronologicaly, but it's enjoyable, at least, for me.

Unwatchable .

)And where there is is identity confusion, art rushes in.

Fritz the Cat is probably worth watching if you're an animated historian or avid hentai fan.

" you say "If there is no plot, then why is it rated 'X' and not 'R'?

Fritz The Cat is an entertaining film which is much better than its sequel.

bit of a cliché right there).

The problem for me is that I found it disjointed and, I'm sorry to say, pretty boring.

Ralph Bakshi's first film, is flawed but enjoyable.

A porn film is only meant to arouse you, there's no other point, it has no story and works on the lowest emotional level.

Bakshi has taken Fritz-an oversexed, cool and hip character-and transplanted him into a story so sour, dark, pointless and hopelessly dated that watching this film becomes a chore.

To a child about to undergo serious growing pains and a naturally growing curiosity towards all things "adult-related", Fritz the Cat was very much my earliest childhood memory of the themes of sex, drugs, rock-n-roll, racism, you name it, and it was a symbol for naughtiness that all coming of age kids couldn't wait to catch a sneak peak of, or at least couldn't wait to reach the age when we could view such subject matter freely.

It makes "Family Guy," another cartoon I hate, look like Shakespeare, and it has no plot or effort put into it.

A shocking but very entertaining film… .

Not that I'm offended by animated nudity, but geez, they were going too far over the top with pointless nudity in these films.

This was just self-indulgent garbage.

Both this and Nine Lives have great soundtracks but I found this one to be more funny and more entertaining.

Fritz gets bored with his study at the University of New York.

There really is no plot, except that Fritz has several adventures that lead to a development matching that of Alex's in the film version of "A Clockwork Orange".

This movie is about as fun as watching paint dry for hours.

He got off to a good start with the hysterical Saturday morning cartoon superhero-spoof "The Mighty Heroes," but then landed in the world of depressing, horny, pointless animated features.

The first is real funny and entertaining (also very pervert).
