Crazy Credits

The first credit card: "Tim W. Burton & Brett R. Thompson presents" was a direct homage to Samuel Z. Arkoff by adding the middle initials of Tim's and Brett's name. This is the only film Tim made where he used his middle initial from his name. The card at the beginning announcing it's a GIP production ("Global International Pictures" ) is a direct tribute to American International Pictures (AIP). See more »

Good for Fans of Burton

Stalk of the Celery (1979)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

This two-minute animated short was the second film from director Tim Burton and it will mainly appeal to his fans who want to see everything he did. Basically what we have here is a dentist creating the title character while patients wait out in his lobby. If you're looking for a masterpiece or some lost piece of art then you're going to be disappointed because you're not going to find that here. With that said, the short is actually pretty good and especially when you consider how young Burton was at the time that it was made. I think you can clearly see some talent here, although I certainly wouldn't go as far as to say you could tell Burton would become what he did. I thought the animation was pretty good with all things considered but the most impressive thing is how much imagination is on the screen. I thought the characters all looked terrific and there are so many small touches done by the director that it really makes the film stand out compared to other student films.
