Tim Burton is known for his love and dedication to stop-motion animation. With his tale of Jack Skellington being the first full length feature stop-motion film by an American studio his name is synonymous with the medium. After penning, (but not directing) The Nightmare Before Christmas, he co-directed the feature film Corpse Bride, about a wayward groom who accidentally marries a dead girl. Last year Burton released his first solo directed stop-motion feature Frankenweenie, about a boy who resurrects his beloved dead dog. Despite these three great stop-motion films for this months Movies in Motion we go back to a hidden Burton gem from his days as a Disney animator.
