A middle-aged woman meets a strange man on the streets at night who shows her the remains of a leather jacket. He takes her back to Brooklyn of 1953, and tells her about Vinnie, his gang, the Stompers, his girl Roz, his friend Crazy Shapiro, and the all-out rumble with the black rival gang, the Chaplins.

Hey Good Lookin' is a 1982 American adult animated coming of age comedy film written, directed, and produced by Ralph Bakshi. The film takes place in Brooklyn, New York, during the 1950s and focuses on Vinnie, the leader of a gang named "the Stompers," his friend, Crazy Shapiro, and their girls, Roz and Eva. It features the voices of Richard Romanus, David Proval, Tina Bowman, and Jesse Welles. Hey Good Lookin' was first completed in 1975 as a live-action/animated combination, in which only the main characters were animated and the rest were portrayed by live actors, but the film's release was pushed back, and later postponed indefinitely. Warner Bros. claimed that this version of the film was unsatisfactory; concerns over controversy as the result of the backlash against the film Coonskin were also cited. In 1982, a very different version of the film was released; much of the live-action sequences were replaced by animated ones, and dialogue was heavily rewritten and reedited. This version was distributed in a limited release in the United States and went largely unnoticed by the American public; it performed respectably in foreign markets, and developed a cult following on cable television and home video. The original version of the film remains unreleased. [Wikipedia, retrieved July 2016]
