Hey Good Lookin is an animated film by Ralph Bakshi that was released in 1982. Originally to be planned out as a live-action/animated movie but was later changed to a fully-animated film. It has been said that its original live-action/animated setting is still around but may be hard to find. A soundtrack of the film was released around 2006.

Hey good looking provides with these tropes:

  • Abusive Parents: Solly the Cop, BIG TIME.
  • Ambiguously Jewish: Crazy Shapiro, his father, Rozzie and her father
  • Bare Your Midriff: Rozzie
  • Big Eater: Eva
  • Captain Obvious Reveal: The Reveal at the end, that the middle aged woman and man who are telling the story are actually Roz and Vinnie in present day, isnt really much of a shocker.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Crazy Shapiro sums this up perfectly.
  • Deconstruction: Of 1950s nostalgia, whether people think the 1950s were really just like Happy Days or Grease or whatever (the "cool" main character is a Dirty Coward, he and his girlfriend aren't really in love, he and his friends are not True Companions, etc.).
  • Disney Acid Sequence: It has one of these during the film.
  • Fake Ultimate Hero: Vinnie, despite being the main character and leader of the Stompers, is in fact a huge coward, who skips town rather than help his gang in the fight against their rivals, despite being the one who got them into it in the first place.
  • Framing Device: The plot is a story being told by an older man to a middle aged woman, in reality Vinnie and Roz 30 years later.
  • Hell-Bent for Leather: The Stompers all wear black motorcycle jackets with "Stompers" painted on the back.
  • Impossible Hourglass Figure: Rozzie has this with a mixture of a big butt.
  • Lost Forever: The actual live-action/animated version of the film is in this.
  • Offing the Offspring: Crazy's father Solly, a violent corrupt cop, constantly tries to kill him.
  • No Indoor Voice: Rozzie's father.
  • Roto Scoping: Some parts of the film have this, and it isn't hard to tell either.
  • Roger Rabbit Effect: Started out as this, but was later reworked as an animated feature. Although certain parts of the film have the animated characters over live-action backgrounds.
  • Shout-Out: A certain part of the film has animated characters doing Wild Take reactions, that look very familiar.
  • Taking You with Me: During the climax, Crazy jumps off a rooftop and lands on Sully who is about to kill Vinnie, killing both himself and his father.
