When I was much younger I had a hell of a time when I kept hearing about an animated movie called “Fritz the Cat”. I just couldn’t separate this cartoon in my head from “Felix the Cat”. But, what I heard about Fritz just didn’t jive with Felix. Felix is an old timey cartoon cat who does whacky, silly things that kids laugh at. Fritz is an adult cat, who concerns himself with adult things like drugs, violence, racism and sex. It wasn’t until I became aware of the other creations of alternative cartoonist Robert Crumb that I was able to make sense of my confusion.
