I storyboarded Pee Wee's Big Adventure for Tim Burton. So I got this inquiry this week:
I know you are a very busy person, but I hope you can answer a question for me (or direct me to someone who can).
On Pee Wee Herman's bicycle in the Big Adventure, what is the black base of the Lion's Head made of? I am building a replica of this bicycle (it is my favorite movie of all time).
I wish I knew. I mean, how cool is that?
I directed him to the property master, listed at the indispensible internet movie database.
