Sex & Nudity


There is some sexual dialogue.

Fritz tricks three females (two cats and a kangaroo) into having an orgy in a bathtub, soon more people join it. A nude bunny holds his penis, and he urinates on a pig. One of the more graphic sexual sequences.

In two fantasy sequence, Fritz runs through a tunnel of breasts. He has sex with a topless women.

Fritz has sex with a crow; full nudity. The most explicit sexual content in this scene, which lasts for less than 5 minutes.

A sign says "ALL AMERICAN BOOTS!", and it shows a topless African-American woman depicted in 'blackface' (this is the Robert Crumb character Angelfood McSpade).

We see a topless horse, when she bends over or walks, we see her butt.

A lizard's breast pops out of her shirt.

A horse is raped by her heroin addicted rabbit boyfriend and two other characters after being violently beaten with a chain. The rape is not shown but she is seen afterwards, naked and traumatized.

Fritz once again has sex with the three women from before, this time in mid-air.

Violence & Gore


There are several acts of cartoon violence throughout.

There is a riot scene where Fritz's friend Duke is shot and killed. A lot of animated blood is shown. Others get shot or shot at (with bloody results). A bunch of planes are then seen bombing the area of the riot.

A man beats his chickens with a wooden plank (with bloody results).

Harriet (The Horse) gets beaten with a chain (again with bloody results), and Fritz gets hit in the face with a candle.

Fritz is blown up with dynamite (we see a live-action explosion), and is later seen almost completely bandaged in a hospital.



Frequent uses of profanity including "f*ck", "shit", "ass", "damn", "hell", "motherf*cker", and "goddamn" with derogatory slurs such as "n**ger" and "fag" along with phrases such as "f*ck-a-duck".


There is marijuana use by several characters and heroin use by Blue and a crow.

LSD is mentioned at one point.

Some characters drink alcohol in a bar.

Fritz ingests pills at one point that seem to cause him to hallucinate.


The rape scene may upset some. The hallucination sequences are rather intense. Some may be disturbed by cartoon animals having sex in human positions. This is, in no way whatsoever, a kid's cartoon. It should only be viewed by people aged 17 years and over.

Suggested MPAA rating: NC-17 for graphic sexual content, intensively strong language and graphic cartoon violence.
