The worst part was that Bakshi rotoscoped most of the film, and then proclaimed it to be a great innovation.
Well, in the hands of talented animators, Bakshi's rotoscoping technique became the groundwork for the software that gave Sin City
it's look. (I think Robin Williams [the animator, not the comedian] also used the technology to integrate live-action and animation in Who Framed Roger Rabbit
.) About 4 years ago, a friend of mine told me that Bakshi deserves some credit for being the first to try the technology, even though when everyone else saw what it looked like they knew not to do it themselves.
