The reason? “I’m just sick of it,” Fritz tells American Songwriter. “I feel like Billy Joe Shaver — ‘cursed to be born as serious souls, no one will take seriously.’ I may be a rascal and make a lot of jokes, but I take my jokes and stupid life very seriously. I have a few tricks up my sleeve that I don’t want to see credited to a goddamn cartoon. Time to step it up.”
Fair enough. Goodbye Corndawg, and hello again Mr. Fritz.
