| The Fuz was another interesting Ralph Bakshi cartoon from Paramount Cartoon Studios
Just found this Ralph Bakshi-directed cartoon from Paramount Cartoon Studios on the Saturday Morning Blog as linked from Daily Motion. A lady is scared of a little furry person all covered in hair who seems harmless (must be a comment on normal people fearing hippies since this short was made in the late '60s). Superblaster and his sidekick Bob overhear this as Superblaster tries to get out but the landlady stops him at the door to get her money. When the superhero tries to feign being broke, the landlady pummels him until he pays all the money. When he reaches the little furball, Superblaster keeps bumping into things while the furball just stands still and goes its own way...This being another Bakshi cartoon made in the waning days of Paramount's animation unit, this take on another possible variation of Ralph's "Mighty Heroes" from Terrytoons starts pretty funny enough with the hysterical woman's screams, her small husband, and that furball character and continues with Superblaster's inept ways of handling himself initially but it runs out of steam before the amusing surprise ending which redeems the short a bit. On that note, The Fuz is worth a look for Bakshi enthusiasts.
