El Toro Cantina has a round fish tank in a window, decorated to look like the lens of a camera. When Zippy vistsed here, he thought he was looking into a camera lens and imagined being able to communicate with Diane Arbus, an American photographer. He also warped a known saying into "A picture is worth a thousand corn dogs!" Finally Zippy decided that he wanted to trade in his iPhone for a 1949 Speed Graphic camera.

Zippy last visited the El Toro Cantina on 2006, when he became mesmerized looking at the fish in the tank through the lens window.
