Vincent (1982) - Tim Burton

Vincent Malloy is seven years old

He’s always polite and does what he’s told

For a boy his age, he’s considerate and nice

But he wants to be just like Vincent Price

Frankenweenie opens today.  Let’s remember for a moment that it was based on a short film from 1984.  Two years earlier, Burton made this wonderful stop motion gem.  If the feature can combine the spirit of both shorts, I’d be pleased.

I Haven’t Got A Hat (1935)

Directed by Friz Freleng

This cartoon was meant to be a vehicle for Beans, but the character that stood out the most to audiences was Porky Pig, making his debut.

I Haven’t Got a Hat, 1935, Warner Bros.

Color, Sound

Disney had an exclusive deal with Technicolor’s 3-color (Red/Blue/Green) process at this time, so Leon Schlesinger’s studio was forced to use the 2-color (Red/Green) process.

Tommy Tucker’s Tooth, Laugh-O-Gram Studios, 1922

Black and White, Silent

Directed by Walt Disney (1901-1966). Commissioned by a Kansas City dentist, this short gave Disney just enough time and money to make “Alice’s Wonderland”, the short that got him started in Hollywood.
