Cartoon Summary:

Burnt-out cartoonist Jack Dweebs withdraws into his cartoon creations, the Cool World, where sexy "doodle" Holli Would uses him to become human. The story follows two humans who encounter Cool World- a parallel universe where cartoons actually exist- and tangle with the seductive Holli, an ambitious animated bombshell determined to escape into three-dimensional reality. Deebs created and then is seduced by Holli. Frank Harris is the Cool World cop out to make sure that humans don't have sex with cartoon characters, since that act can rupture the fabric between the two universes. Of course, the rupturing occurs, and all sorts of freewheeling animated hell breaks loose as cartoon misfits of all shapes and sizes invade the city of Las Vegas. With a thumping techno score that includes tracks from Moby and David Bowie and such goofy touches as Holli singing "Let's Make Love" with Frank Sinatra Jr., Cool World is definitely a freaky place to visit.

There were some annoyingly base aspects to this movie, but that's to be expected of Bakshi. If taken for what it is, this is something very enjoyable to watch. The notion of an alternate dimension of animated characters parallel to our own is something fun...  (read more)

Cool World is a surreal presentation by director Ralph Bakshi. Although many compare it to Roger Rabbit, Bakshi clearly wasn't trying to give the public a knockoff. He purposely kept the cartoon two-dimensional so that he could present Cool World as not...  (read more)

A Who framed Roger Rabbit wannabe. Has a few moments, but not enough of them to save this movie. I found it had a weak plot and it really started to drag by the end of...  (read more)
