Tim Burton's first film credit for Disney was his animation work on "The Fox and the Hound" which he is unmentioned in the film's credits. Eventually, he was allowed slightly more personal freedom and Disney agreed to let him do his first two films, "Vincent" and "Frankenweenie" which they later deemed inappropriate for children. These two films are now available on the same 10th anniversery edition of Burton's masterpiece "The Nightmare Before Christmas."
