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."
Tim Burton has written two books: "The Nightmare Before Christmas" and "The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy & Other Stories". Tim Burton dedicated "Oyster Boy" to his girlfriend Lisa Marie.
Barret Oliver was actually a pretty talented child actor , he appeared in "D.A.R.Y.L.", "Cocoon" and "Cocoon: the returns" but after that, pretty much disappeared. He kind of needs a "Henry Thomas" come-back. Barret, we miss you!
Writer Leonard Ripps also wrote scripts for the t.v. shows "Full House" and "Bosom Buddies".
Frankenweenie was deemed unsuitable for children and was never released in theaters.
