Heavy Traffic

It's a Heavy cartoon.


Comedy

Patrick Crain

Ah, the early days of video stores. Most every city, burg and/or township had that one glorious store with one copy of everything. OKC had Kaleidoscope Video Stores; Mid-Del had Bob’s Video; and in the dark regions of Bob’s Video sat the “adult” movies which were basically comprised of Paul Morrissey’s Flesh For Frankenstein and Blood For Dracula and Ralph Bakshi’s two X-rated cartoons, Fritz the Cat and Heavy Traffic. Oh, how I wanted to see all these movies! Of course, as an eleven-year-old, I never had the gumption to try to rent any of them out of fear I would be ejected from the store and banned for life.
