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.

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

Propaganda at Its Nastiest .

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

" 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.

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

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

bit of a cliché right there).

This was just self-indulgent garbage.

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

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.

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.

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

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".

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

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.

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.

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

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

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

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

Unwatchable .

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.

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.

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

A shocking but very entertaining film… .

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

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

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

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

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