Robert Crumb Net Worth $20 Million

Robert Crumb net worth: Robert Crumb was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and started drawing comic strips with his brothers when he was in his early adolescents. They sold their work door to door. Then he went to work for the American Greetings card business for a long time. He later relocated to San Francisco in the late 60s, and went on to create what’s widely understood to function as the first successful comic strip to come from the underground comix movement, “Zap Comix”, in 1968. Since that time, he’s gone to create a number of the most famous and contentious comic strips and comic strip characters of the last 50 years, including Fritz the Cat, Mr. Natural, “Weirdo”, and “Keep on Truckin'”.

7Son of Beatrice Crumb.
8Credits his older brother Charles Crumb for introducing him to art as a means of venting his emotional distress. Charles would actually bully Robert into drawing and creating.
9Turned down an offer to appear as a guest band on Saturday Night Live (1975) with his band, the Cheap Suit Serenaders.
10Drew the famed cover for the Big Brother & The Holding Co. "Cheap Thrills" album featuring Janis Joplin. Encouraged by the strong response, other record labels offered Crumb similar deals, but he turned them all down.
11Is the most famous and successful underground cartoonist in history and was the first to become mainstream.
12Animation legend Matt Groening (The Simpsons (1989) and "Life Is Hell") was a fan in his youth and still is, though he keeps Crumb's books hidden from his own children.
13Friend of underground "everyman" comic writer Harvey Pekar and independent filmmaker Terry Zwigoff.
14His daughter, Sophie Crumb, is an accomplished cartoonist in her own right. 2004 saw the publication of her own comic book, "Belly Button Comix".
15Is an accomplished banjo player.
16Has a large collection of vintage 78 RPM records, mostly rare jazz from the 1920's.
17Worked with American Greetings as a color seperator and greeting card illustrator.
18Is often credited with creating the first "underground" comic book, "Zap Comix".

21Self-taught artist.
22Created characters like Fritz the Cat and the Snoid.
23Gifted cartoonist who first achieved fame with his "Keep On Truckin'" character he named "Mr. Natural."

1(On the hit movie Fritz the Cat (1972) which was based on his comics): "They put words in Fritz's mouth I never would've had him say. It was not my movie. I had nothing to do with it. They just used a couple of my stories. But a lot of people seem to think I was involved - that bothers me".
2(On Adults only Animation pioneer Ralph Bakshi): "He wanted to be the new hip Walt Disney. He was so neurotic and high-strung. He had beads of sweat all down his head".
3[Putting to rest rumors that he hung out with Grateful Dead in the 1960s]: "I never had anything to do with those guys. I hated their music. I went to some of their concerts and fell asleep".
4People now don't have any concept that there was ever a culture outside of this thing that was created to make money. Whatever is the biggest, latest thing, they're into it. You get disgusted after a while at humanity.
5You must thank the gods for art, those of us who have been fortunate enough to stumble onto this means of venting our craziness, our meanness, our towering disgust.
