The 50 Best Comic Book Movies

Fritz the Cat

Director: Ralph Bakshi
Year: 1972
Filthy, creepy, and borderline racist, Fritz the Cat does a pretty good job translating the Robert Crumb comics, despite him publicly hating the movie. It loses most of Crumb's satire, but makes up for it with some great hand-drawn animation. Personally, we're too skeeved out by cartoon animals having sex to ever watch it again, but it's historically important and certainly well-made.
