Cool World on VHS. Starring Gabriel Byrne, Kim Basinger, Brad Pitt. With Michele Abrams, Deirdre O’Connell. Directed by Ralph Bakshi. 1992.
From the box:
When ex-con cartoonist Jack Deebs (Gabriel Byrne) was behind bars he found escape by creating Cool World, a cartoon series featuring a voluptuous vixen named Holli Would.
But the ‘toonsmith becomes a prisoner of his own fantasies when Holli pulls Jack into Cool World with a scheme to seduce him and bring herself to life. A hard-boiled detective (Brad Pitt)–the only other human in Cool World–cautions Jack with the law: ‘Noids (humans) don’t have sex with doodles (cartoons).
The flesh proves weaker than ink, however, as Holli takes human form (Kim Basinger) in Las Vegas, starting a trans-universal chase that threatens the destruction of both worlds.
