    Fritz the Cat Production Cel with Key Master Background (Ralph Bakshi, 1972). "I fought many a good man, laid many a good woman. I've lived life to the fullest." These are just some of the words Fritz uses In the opening segment of this, the first X-rated animated feature film, to impress the three girls he sees in New York City. He begins to walk away with the blonde, spewing his words of wisdom at approximately the 6:55 mark into the film. This is a rare hand-painted production cel of Fritz the Cat with the blonde girl. The hand-painted cel is on its Key Master 12 field hand-painted production background, complete with the Master cel overlay. Key Master setups from this film are considered extremely rare. This historic cartoon was directed by Ralph Bakshi and released on 4/12/72. Great large images of 7" and 5" tall. Minor handling and edge wear on the cel and background. Tape on top background border. Small tears along the border of the background as well. Condition is Very Good.
