Ralph Bakshi gathered retired animators from all over the world to work on his 1972 film, misleadingly billed as the first feature-length cartoon for adults. The results, inevitably, were disappointing; Bakshi just didn't have the money to make it right. Based on the drawings of R. Crumb, the film is a period piece set in New York, circa 1967, and deals with a reasonable cat's efforts to manage his way through the treacherous cross-cultural tides. Bakshi has since done better (Coonskin) and much, much worse (Lord of the Rings).
