After the success of Bill & Ted, Alex and his directing partner Tom Stern were able to sell a series to MTV. One of the first live actions shows ever on the network. Super violent and politically incorrect, The Idiot Box was a huge hit for MTV.
From ART OF THE TITLE: The psychobilly opening to Tom Stern & Alex Winter’s “Freaked” is strung on the brute wattage of the Henry Rollins/Blind Idiot God track and the unfettered fury of one Mr. David Daniels. The creator of modern stratacut animation, Daniels has essentially refined a process where the image—and the movement of the image—is molded into clay. Take a moment to think about that.
