High Society – Fritz the Cat

Sex and drugs with a phreaky puffing pussPuffing clips from “Fritz the Cat” (’72 – by Steve Krantz and Ralph Bakshi) and “Nine Lives of Fritz the Cat” (’74 -Steve but no Ralph). Based on a character created by Robert Crumb. Rude, naughty, hedonistic & totally disrespectful towards the authorities.
Special thanks to “Bud-E” for snagging this one (and Southpark and other shows, too)

It’s especially for activists and people who want to know the nitty gritty on the herb. The most recent issues were the “Ancient History” issues – sure to please.
