** Oddly, both these characters are similar enough in appearance that first-time watchers might just assume that [[TheOtherDarrin a new voice actor was brought in.]]

* FollowTheLeader: The film did so well, it made other studios to make cartoons for adults at the time. Even though most of them tried to copy Fritz.

Creator/RalphBakshi's 1972 feature film adaptation of RobertCrumb's comic strip ''[[ComicBook/FritzTheCat Fritz The Cat]]''. Famous for being the first X-rated animation in the United States, it is an amalgamation of many plotlines from the comic into a feature film. It was more overt in its political and social commentary than the comics, which were largely light entertainment.

The movie follows Fritz as he [[BigApplesauce roams New York]] (and later takes a roadtrip to UsefulNotes/SanFrancisco) in TheSixties, ostensibly looking for a cause to join in. Over the course of the movie he spends time hanging out with stoners, talking to black people (represented by crows) in Harlem where he meets Duke, very briefly meeting with some Rabbis, going on a road trip with his girlfriend Winston, and ultimately meeting with [[spoiler:extremists who blow up a power plant]]. Unsurprisingly, he spends most of the movie running from the police (represented as, of course, pigs). Of course, his goal of finding himself always seems to take a back seat to more immediate gratification in the form of [[AllMenArePerverts carnal pleasures]] or [[StonerFlick good ol' fashioned weed]].

The movie harshly criticizes the hippie lifestyle and leftist views in general. When the movie finally premiered Robert Crumb expressed dismay over Bakshi's political choices in the film, calling the final part of the film "fascist." Crumb also found the rampant sexual themes of the movie to be offputting - saying of Bakshi, "It's like real repressed horniness; he's kind of letting it out compulsively." Which is a little bit odd, given that such things are ubiquitous in Crumb's work. Just read any of it.

Because of this film's politics, Crumb killed off the character in the comic "Fritz the Cat, Superstar". Later, Steve Krantz produced a sequel, ''WesternAnimation/TheNineLivesOfFritzTheCat'', released in 1974, which largely consists of scenarios in which [[ResetButton Fritz repeatedly dies]].
