In 1984, visionary director Tim Burton made a short film called "Frankenweenie" for Disney so unrelentingly weird they fired him from the studio. A few decades later, Disney's letting Burton make a feature length version ... with stop-motion animation ... in black and white. Yep, a few billion dollars in box office gives you clout.
Just like this charmingly ghoulish project was brought back from the movie graveyard, the main school-age character Victor Frankenstien brings his beloved dog Sparky back to life through the all-purpose miracle of lightning. These clips should put electrodes on your funny bone.
