I saw this as a child as a pre-show to a movie in the cinema
(yes back in the days when smoking was still allowed, ice-cream treats were sold from people walking around with trays of goodies and movies had cartoon and short movies before the main presentation - shut up no I'm not that old thanks)
I don't remember what the main movie was mind but I remember watching this and falling in love with the breed of dog that Sparky was (Bull Terrier?). I laughed and cried and for many years after wondered why I never saw or could find that movie again UNTIL the AWESOME Nightmare Before Christmas was released on to DVD and there in the extras was this film.

Watching it again was amazing and awful. Amazing as I loved this film so much but awful as it was obviously not given the chance to do everything it wanted ... til now, 2012, Tim Burton is releasing Frankenweenie as an animated film and I am beyond excited!!!
October 5th can not come quick enough!!! The trailer can be seen in one of the other uploads I've added and I'm so psyched for it.

I love that they have used the dog from the cartoon Family Dog (also Tim Burton's creation) and the boy (Victor) looks familiar to another character he has used but I can't quite figure where. (Maybe he just looks like a younger version of Victor from Corpse Bride *shrug* I haven't quite decided.)

Please do give this a view as it is such a great little film and deserves to be seen before the animated version comes out.

All Frankenweenie is belonging to Tim Burton.
