Ralph Bakshi is the undeniable king of American adult cartoons (not porn). He is remembered by his work, such as Wizards, Fritz the Cat, Coonskin, Lord of the Rings, Coolworld, Fire and Ice and MORE! so here are some of my favorite of Ralphs films.
Coonskin is Ralph Bakshi’s compelling racial, action, thriller. It deals with life in the inner city, the struggle for existence in white mans America, drugs, violence, gangs, ninjas, music and the eternal power struggle between what is right and what is wrong. In my opinion any film that Wu-Tang Clan gives five stars, I’m ready to watch.
J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings is a 1978 American animated fantasy film brought to life by the amazing animator and director Ralph Bakshi. The film itself uses a hybrid of traditional cel animation and rotoscoped live action footage to create a wonderful and enchanting tribute to Tolkien’s original work. When I was a child my father first showed me this cartoon along with the Animated version of the Hobbit.
For a few years the Lord of The Rings would be my favorite movie; because 1. It was a cartoon, and 2. It is an incredibly epic and awesome story. The film is available on youtube, and dvd.
Fire and Ice is a 1983 animated adventure-fantasy film, created and directed by the wonderful Ralph Bakshi (wow, see the pattern). The film was a collaboration between Bakshi and Frank Frazetta: an American fantasy and science fiction artist. This one is quite different from the others, it has very little dialouge and focuses more on the stylistic forms of cartooning, that plus some watercolor background and you got sick action movie!
Peace, rings, and scary gollum S.C.G.
