Did You Know?


As of 2017, this is Ralph Bakshi's last film, though he does intend to return to filmmaking soon, after being annoyed by every major animated film being made with computer animation.


Lonette: So did you do it while you were back there in the real world? Did you do it while you were real? Do you ever think about going back there so you can?
Frank Harris: There's no reason now.
Lonette: Well, then, we're just going to have to stop pretending now, aren't we?


When Frank is examining the crime scene of Nails' 'murder', there is a chalk outline of Nail's body on the ground. However, Holli 'inked' Nails and sucked him into a fountain pen, so there would have been no body to draw an outline around.

Alternate Versions

When shown on the sci-fi channel, the following scenes have been cut:

  • When sparks encounters doodle children in the alley he releases little coins with fangs that attacks them, they only show him say "I hate it when she meets guys without telling me".
  • While being chased by the popper police, Slash (the baby-like doodle) urinates on them: they only show the popper police get hit by the train
  • While waiting for the doodle telephone to get to Frank, Nails bites into his desk
  • The sex scene between Holli Would and Jack Deebs has been altered and some footage has been deleted
  • After Nails was "penned' by Holli, Frank encounters Sparks and knocks his french fries out of his hand, Sparks responded with "now you can buy me more fries, dick-head", but it was changed to "now you can buy me more fries pinhead"
  • At the end, Holli's "pencildick" remark is deleted.
