Late Tuesday Tease: A Spicy City is a Tasty City

In the twilight of the 1990s, the animation age continued to walk deep inside the ghetto a chosen few forced upon it. Adults, in their infinite wisdom, relegated drawn motion to that of child’s play. The rest of the world did not and does not have the same ideas on this attitude. Recently people are taking notice that a well animated film does not mean that it is destined for a 6 year old eyes. From time to time we will do our part in breaking the rest of lazy America’s assumptions.

Spicy City was a Ralph Bakshi creation that lived on HBO for one season in 1997. We have a love/hate relationship to many of Bakshi’s projects. His need to push Americans out of their entertainment comfort zones is what keeps him on our radar.

The episode “Tears of a Clone” is always our first memory of the short lived series. Sometimes we are quite sentimental in our storytelling tastes. No need for worries that our snark will lose all its teeth. The sentiment always passes.
