Boxoffice: $6,000,000

An ambitious animated film that flopped on its Valentine's Day release. It would later develop cult status-but nothing to compare to Bakshis FRITZ THE CAT.

This Columbia Home Video release had a popping , shiny silver slipcase-a far departure from their uniform red border slipcovers of the RCA?columbia releases.

Trivia: Name these Bakshi films from their poster taglines:

A) An epic fantasy of peace and magic.

B) Heroic, Fantasy Adventure!

C) There are two different worlds: The Real World and the Wacky, Animated World. Only one of them will survive.

D) It's animated, but it's not a cartoon. It's funny, but it's not a comedy. It's real. It's unreal. It's heavy.

E) WARNING: "This film offends everybody!"

F) Ralph Bakshi, creator of "Fritz the Cat" and "Heavy Traffic" brings you the outrageous '50s the way they really were.

G) Fantasy...beyond your imagination
