This film is from the early 70's and was shown together with Fritz the Cat. It was a traditional film which switched to animation. The animated scene was about a boy and a man on a trolley. The man had no legs and he tried to shoot the boy. The action switches from normal to animation. Animated and live characters did not appear together in the same scene.

Any help in identifying this movie please?

Welcome to M&TV! If I can ask, can you add a little more detail? You say it was shown together with Fritz the Cat. Fritz was a full length film, in and of itself, so was this other film a short? Was it too an "X" rated film like Fritz? Fritz must have been pretty raunchy to gain that rating! Anyway, any other details might help. – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 Aug 15 '13 at 15:26
Ive found it myself after using my brain.Heavy Traffic by Ralph Bakshi......totally Un PC for this era but a typical 1970 crazy film. Thank you – user5798 Aug 16 '13 at 9:30

It sounds like Heavy Traffic, (1973). It was also directed by Ralph Bakshi, and would have been shown with Fritz the Cat as a Ralph Bakshi double feature. From Wikipedia:

The film, which begins, ends, and occasionally combines with live-action, explores the often surreal fantasies of a young New York cartoonist named Michael Corleone, using pinball imagery as a metaphor for inner-city life.


He regularly hangs out at a local bar where he gets free drinks from the female black bartender, Carole, in exchange for sketches of the somewhat annoying Shorty, Carole's violent, legless bouncer devotee.


Just then, Shorty shows up and shoots Michael in the head. The bullet is seen going through his skull in slow motion.
