Heel & Toe

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


Background

This is the vanity card of Paul Attanasio (who would later form his own sole company, Atelier Paul Attanasio) and Katie Jacobs.

Logo (October 10, 2000-May 21, 2012)


Visuals: Set on a stage, there is a small figurine of a ballerina and a man dancing and twirling around. Suddenly, a human foot wearing a shoe stomps on the couple, crushing it. Then, "HeeL & Toe" (in white, and in a strangely-arranged Times font) appears next to the shoe.

Variants:

  • A short version exists on House, M.D.
  • The logo would come in either the standard 4:3 version (seen on full-screen prints) or the widescreen 16:9 version.

Technique: Live-action.

Audio: A music box rendition of "Für Elise" plays as the dancing ballerina turns and a "stomp" sound as the couple is crushed. A squishing sound is also played as the foot comes down.

Audio Variant: ABC airings of Gideon's Crossing use a generic theme and leaves the squishing sound intact.

Availability: First seen on the series Gideon's Crossing and also appeared on Century City and House, M.D.
