Trivia:
Mr. Bonejangles and his skeleton band are partly inspired by the cartoon The Skeleton Dance (1929) but are also heavily influenced by Cab Calloway and his band as they appeared in rotoscoped form in several Betty Boop cartoons. The piano player wears shades like Ray Charles, and his movements are based on Charles' mannerisms. The character BoneJangles is based on the famous dancer Bill Robinson who was called "Bojangles."See more »

A Work of Dark Art, 5 October 2005
Author: EmperorNortonII from San Francisco, California

After enchanting audiences with "The Nightmare Before Christmas," Tim Burton brings another stop-motion animated spectacle, "Corpse Bride." In this story, Victor Van Dort, an inept young groom-to-be, can't make his way through his wedding rehearsal. Going outside to get his lines right, he accidentally winds up marrying the corpse of a murdered bride-to-be. The animation is spectacular, proving stop-motion can be good enough to compete with computer animation. Johnny Depp provides the voice of Victor, showing mild-mannered and nervous grace. Helena Bonham Carter is the voice of Emily, the Corpse Bride, giving the dead character lively emotion. One striking element of the movie is the color scheme. In the living world, there is no bright color, making a near-black and white appearance. The story is well-written, and the music is good. Overall, "Corpse Bride" must definitely be seen!
