Trivia

Live-action footage was shot as part of Ralph Bakshi's original vision to have the film be a combination of live-action and animated characters (like Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988)). The only animated characters were Vinnie, Rozzi, Crazy, and Eva. The rest of the cast were live action characters shot on live action sets. This version was finished in the late 1970s. When it was initially shown to Warner Brothers executives, they told Bakshi that they loved it. A week later, they told Bakshi that the idea of having live-action and animated characters in the same frame would never work, as it was too unbelievable. He was forced to throw out all the live action footage and reanimate it. Bakshi, having to pay himself, took five more years to complete it around other projects before its official release in 1982.

In the top 4 of Bakshi's best movies
4 April 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I am not the biggest Ralph Bakshi fan, but I have liked quite a number of his films(Cool World was the only one really that I disliked). Presently my top 4 are American Pop, Heavy Traffic, Coonskin and this, Hey Good Lookin'. The animation could be seen as crude by some, that I can understand, I find his most visually beautiful films to be American Pop and Wizards(the latter though I had mixed feelings on), but I find the rough-around-the-edges animation to be part of Hey Good Lookin''s charm. The soundtrack is the very definition of awesomeness as well, the story is gritty and often outrageous but also quite affectionate and somewhat daring, and the satirical edge is smart and biting. The characters are characters you do learn to warm to, and the voice work is solid. Overall, one of Bakshi's best. 9/10 Bethany Cox
