In the early 1990s MTV created an unusual TV series called Liquid Television. Liquid Television was a series of short (one- to ten-minute) "alternative" animated films which would appear between segments. One of the shorts was Henry Sellick's Slow Bob in the Lower Dimensions, for which The Residents wrote the music. The art directory was Ronald Davis, who had created the Cubo-Residents for the Cube-E tour, contributed a character story to Bad Day on the Midway, and did design work for Freak Show Live. In addition to airing on MTV in February, 1991, the animated film toured with Expanded Entertainment's International Tournée of Animation.
