Would you like to see a video game based off of a Bakshi film?

Now before I go into details with this. I should let everyone know that there is no new announcements of anything like this. Thank you.

Now. We all know that there was a video game of Cool World, but lets just say that its left to be desired. Since then. There hasn’t been a video game based off any of Ralph Bakshi’s films. In this day of age. We are seeing video game based off of movies. Do you think its time for the world to see a new video game based off of one of Ralph Bakshi’s films(Fritz the cat, Heavy traffic, Coonskin/Street fight, Wizards)?

If you think so. Leave some feedback about it(or reblog with your thoughts about it if you don’t have enough space to leave a comment about it). What Ralph Bakshi film should get adapted into a video game, who should make it(who referring to which video game company) and what it should be on in terms of consoles. 

There was a rumor about an RPG based off Wizards being considered, but nothing came out of it. 

MIss America wishes you all a happy 4th of July, from the fellows behind ohyeahralphbakshi. Enjoy your fourth of july fellow Bakshi fans.

Animation Inspiration Week: Ralph Bakshi

I’ll start with a more recent inspiration of mine. I’ve known about Bakshi since high school and watched Fritz the Cat, which I thought was cool since it was super adult but I don’t think I was mature enough to really “get it”. About a year ago I rediscovered him and it just clicked.  I became obsessed. Instead of looking at his work as smut or X-rated, I saw it as rebellion against popular animation in general. Does it all have to be pretty? Does it all have to be “Disney” animated? Does it all have to have straight forward story? Bakshi says no it doesn’t and I agree. My favorite films of his are mostly his early ones. Cooskin and Heavy Traffic might tie for his best film…with Wizards and Fritz close behind them. Hey Good Lookin’ is odd, underrated and virtually unknown but is also a personal favorite of mine. No one seems to appreciate the design sense of these films. The characters looks like no other and have an ugly, gritty yet appealing look to them. Some are even kind of graphic looking (IE Coonskin). Bakshi’s use of live action backgrounds as well as real footage looks way cool behind these gritty characters. His choice of music is also fantastic. From classic 50’s rock n roll, to more 60’s 70’s psychedelics and funk, it all fits super well the images. I’m not a fan of his rotoscope films but I do like his adaptation of The Lord of The Rings. Take a look at these five films I mentioned and I dare you tell me there is no merit to them. Bakshi creates from his heart and his gut, and both are pretty damn big. That’s why I dig him.

Even though Trey Parker and Matt Stone are not big fans of Ralph Bakshi. They paid homage to his version of Lord of the rings with the opening cinematic of the video game South Park Stick of Truth.
