Frankenweenie is a 2012 animated feature film directed by Tim Burton based on his 1984 short film of the same name. The film follows young Victor Frankenstein and his dog Sparky, who the enterprising scientist brings back to life though mad science.



A heartwarming tale about a boy and his dog. After unexpectedly losing his beloved dog Sparky, young Victor harnesses the power of science to bring his best friend back to life—with just a few minor adjustments. He tries to hide his home-sewn creation, but when Sparky gets out, Victor's fellow students, teachers and the entire town all learn that getting a new "leash on life" can be monstrous.
