Trivia:
When Vincent Price was asked what he thought of the short, he said that it was "the most gratifying thing that ever happened. It was immortality - better than a star on Hollywood Boulevard."See more »

Graveyard Humor, 12 May 2001
Author: Ron Oliver (revilorest@juno.com) from Forest Ranch, CA

Spooky young VINCENT Malloy wants to grow up to become Vincent Price, in the worst possible way...

Darkly humorous, especially in shadowy black & white, this little stop motion animated cartoon is filmmaker Tim Burton's homage to his great friend, fright master Vincent Price (1911-1993). With its bizarre characters, grotesque story line & eerie visuals, it is a direct forerunner of Burton's feature length A NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS (1993). A treat for those who enjoy the macabre.

Narrated with creepy perfection, appropriately enough, by Vincent Price.
