Coonskin (1975)


A multi-layered satire of race relations in America. Live-action sequences of a prison break bracket the animated story of Brother Rabbit, Brother Bear, and Preacher Fox, who rise to the top of the crime ranks in Harlem by going up against a con-man, a racist cop, and the Mafia.

I remember seeing this movie at blockbuster 20 years ago on vhs, it was renamed Street Fight. And at the time I couldn't rent it because of my age, later on when I was 16 my pops let me watch it, and it was heavy. Later on now in my mid 2o's I watched it again and it's still heavy.

I had watch this film on a site called, and it became another Bakshi favorite; and I had heard it was renamed on VHS as "Street Fight;" of course I wonder if it is edited or is it the title that is edited?

Word is a of yet the sdtrk is unreleased.

IMDB says Chico Hamilton did the sdtrk.

I'm sure it will finally be released, most likely by someone overseas [of US].

Visit the Museum of Black Cult Cinema for additional information and digital media.
