A persiflage on the protest movements of the 60s. Its hero is the bold and sex-obsessed tom-cat Fritz the Cat, as created by the legendary underground artist Robert Crumb.

Technically speaking, this movie should not have been made. Robert Crumb did not approve of it. But frankly, this movie took the Fritz character far beyond anything in ZAP magazine (IMHO).
Firstly, the animation is superb and diverse. A variety of styles was used, each appropriate to the mood of the scene.
Secondly, the characterization was great. Fritz's travels bring him in contact with every woodpecker and lunatic imaginable. And the ensuing conversations are...well...let's leave it at "unique". Fans of movies like Roadside Prophets, Slacker, and Highway 61 should definitely appreciate this film.
Not a film for kids. Contains nudity, drugs, and about everything else you can think of.
