(Worth A Look)
After finishing 'Coonskin,' Ralph Bakshi filmed much of this wonky, willfully offensive animated feature in 1975; he scrapped it and returned to it later.Set in the '50s, it continues the Coonskin tradition of stereotypes so blatant as to make liberals foam at the mouth — except this time there's very little social satire to justify it. It's just Bakshi pissing on people and having a grand time. As such, the film is sporadically a guilty pleasure.
A kid named Crazy has three testicles; the characters boink constantly. Bakshi certainly captures the sleaze of the '50s. In a really broad scene, a Jewish father removes his belt to punish his slutty daughter, and his pants fall down. Later, the daughter, having been handcuffed to a bedpost, follows her boyfriend out into the street, dragging the bed behind her.Recommended to Bakshi fans; all others beware.
