    This was one of many episodes of "Life in the Fridge" created for the first season of CBS Inc.'s Saturday morning, hit TV show, "Pee Wee's Playhouse" produced by Broadcast Arts in NYC during the summer of 1986. I worked as the DP (director of photography) with director: Rob Niosi, animator: Spencer Cook & producer Eric Herrmann. We shot all the episodes of Fridge on 35MM film with Mitchell cameras. In addition to doing the lighting and camera work I also did motion control and occasionally animated a shot or two. In this episode the freezer food is having a dance party and the ice cube mimics Pee Wee Herman's famous tippy toe tequila dance steps. I animated the ice cube close up shot with the spinning bow tie. Note: The live action character Cowboy Curtis is played by Lawrence Fishburne.
