In this follow-up to the 1972 animated hit Fritz the Cat (the first animated feature to receive an X rating), Fritz (voice of Skip Hinnant) is married, out of work, on welfare, and not at all happy. Desperate to blot out the misery of living with his nagging wife (voice of Reva Rose), Fritz smokes as much marijuana as he can afford and finds himself fantasizing about how his life could have been. His Walter Mitty-like adventures find him travelling in outer space, working at the White House, assisting Adolph Hitler, and becoming involved with African-American radicals. Unlike its raunchier predecessor, The Nine Lives of Fritz the Cat only merited an R rating upon initial release. Neither Robert Crumb (the comic artist who created the character) nor Ralph Bakshi (director of the first film) were involved in its production. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide

Tries way to hard to by "trippy" by libbyloo April 17, 2004 - 3:49 PM PDT

I enjoyed the first Fritz very much. This film, however, just concentrates on trying to be "far out" and "trippy". Granted those elements were present in the original, but that just added to the great story. If R. Crumb is embaressed by Bakshi's original, than this sequel must of made him contimplate suicide.
