    No Wizards, no Coonskin, no Hey Good Lookin', no Fire and Ice, no Mighty Mouse, no Spider-Man, no Mighty Heroes.... and you want Cool World???? Man, you're a sick puppy. :p)
    But hey, you've got my vote... any Bakshi on dvd is welcome, so long as it's OAR. Man, I've still got to get American Pop. [​IMG]

    I saw this movie when I was eight on HBO and thought it was the most different movie I had seen up til that time. It was also my first exposure to Brad Pitt, who was very good in this movie and later, when I found out that this was a Ralph Bakshi movie, I was shocked because the movie was PG-13 (I was allowed to watch PG-13 movies when I was very young). He is responsible for producing X-rated cartoons I have yet to see, but I'm only 16, so I'm still not old enough to see most of Bakshi's other films.

    But yeah, I would buy this movie on DVD, It's just like "Monkeybone", only much better. Don't carge us too much, Paramount, and I will stick by my word.

    I was dissapointed in Cool World when I saw it, but I wonder if I was too young to appreciate it. I certainly wouldn't mind checking it out again.

    Ken, click on Ralph Bakshi, who directed Cool World, then go buy or rent Fritz the Cat and American Pop. I would also suggest - because I personally enjoy it - Lord of the Rings, but I don't want to get pummelled with rotting vegetables. [​IMG] I would also suggest Heavy Traffic, but I have no idea how the transfer is, nor am I sure if it's even framed correctly. IMDb lists it at 1.66:1, but I see the disc listed as 4:3 (full screen, but I have no clue if it's pan&scan, or open matte). Also, having never seen the movie, I can't comment on the movie itself either, but if you dig Fritz and Pop, I think it should fall in pretty good. [​IMG]
