Ultimately, his films couldn't compete with Disney's juggernaut hits (which hit their stride with 1991's ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast''), and became lost in the overcrowded "all the animation that isn't by Disney" market. For a while in the '90s, it looked like he was ready for a comeback, producing ''WesternAnimation/{{Anastasia}}'' and ''WesternAnimation/TitanAE'' for 20th Century Fox, but then, the rise of Creator/{{Pixar}} and Dreamworks became too much to compete with, creating a lull for traditional cel-drawn animated films that only in the past few years has abated. As of the fall of 2015, he is attempted to crowdsource an animated film based on ''VideoGame/DragonsLair''; after failing on Kickstarter, he tried again and succeeded on Indiegogo that December. As of this writing, he also has [[https://youtube.com/watch?v=sPDdI0XyhOA seven other unknown film projects]] currently in development.

*** Bakshi infamously held a low opinion of Bluth for this very reason: he believed that, by making [[Disneyesque]] movies, Bluth had wasted an opportunity to do something truly revolutionary in the world of animation.
