Power to the people. We asked you, the audience, to pick our next cult film and you delivered. It was a long fought battle between four cult classics, but only one could be crowned review-worthy. Your victor was Ralph Bakshi’s Fritz the Cat! In this episode, we tell the story of how Bakshi’s first feature film came to be. But it’s not all Bakshi we’re discussing. We talk about the other man who deserves tons of credit, Harry Crumb– or wait, Robert Crumb. We also discuss whether an X-rating in 1972 is barely an R in 2017 and why Amazon still has a problem streaming this film. We also ask whether Fritz ever learns anything during his adventures, or is it just drugs, sex, and deviancy for the rest of his days.
