Cool World is a 1992 American live-action/animated black comedy fantasy film directed by Ralph Bakshi, and starring Kim Basinger, Gabriel Byrne and Brad Pitt. It tells the story of a cartoonist who finds himself in the animated world he thinks he created, but has actually existed long before. In this world, he is seduced by one of the characters, a femme fatale who wants to become human.

Cool World marked Bakshi's return to feature films after nine years. The film was originally pitched as a live-action/animated horror film by Bakshi. The screenplay was rewritten by Michael Grais, Mark Victor, and Larry Gross from adult-oriented horror to more of an adolescent comedy-fantasy as per orders from producer Frank Mancuso Jr. and the studio, Paramount Pictures.

Upon its release, Cool World received negative reviews due to its story, acting, animation, and the effects combining that animation with the live-action footage. The soundtrack and visuals received praise. The film grossed $14 million against a budget of $28 million, becoming a box office bomb.
