Here is a deleted opening scene from a season 2 Pickle and Peanut episode that I directed, "Bear-I-Cade". I was going for something weird and slow and artsy. We always wanted to try unconventional things on that show to keep it fresh, lots of stuff didn't work for various reasons of course, but I think got some pretty strange stuff on air. Ultimately this was just too much screen time for a joke that didn't really pay off. I kept trying to cut this sequence in but Joel was having none of it. If you want to see the compromised broadcast version you can buy it here (or steal it with your pirating service of choice). You can edit this clip on to the beginning and call it a Directors Cut!
