When it comes to the likes of Fritz the Cat (that's FTC, for short) - I guess that way back in the Psychedelic 60s - The stoned-out "counter-culture" kids-of-the-day really grooved on absurdly conceived comic-strips like this without caring too much about the actual quality of the humour.

Featuring plenty of sex, profanity, and frequent drug-reference jokes - I suppose that the whole point of FTC's appeal all came down to the fact that (in order to appreciate R. Crumb's nonsensical sense of humour) you really needed to be flying high on weed (or, whatever).

But, unfortunately, today (50 years later) - I certainly found FTC to be decidedly dated and quite stale in its take on "supposedly" comical situations..... In fact - As far as the Fritz character went - I found myself quickly taking a strong disliking to him, and his annoyingly inane, flippant, and adolescent outlook on such matters as women, politics, law-enforcement, and taking responsibility for one's actions.
