The Extremely Peculiar But Wonderous World Of Stainboy
21 October 2005 | by Mhjm6See all my reviews

Tim Burton is my favorite director and he has created a black comedy/stop-motion animation/short-film series about a superhero named Stainboy. Firstly, I read "The Melancholy Death Of Oyster Boy" which is where Stainboy originates from. This is not much different. Here's what it's about: Stainboy is a lonely superhero who works for the police, detecting out any strange and/or harmful activities that occur daily in Burbank. Some examples involve other characters {but not all} from Oyster Boy. They include Roy the Toxic Boy, Robot Boy, the Staring Girl, Match Girl and one character that wasn't in the book called Bowling Ball Head. Each cartoon is about 5 minutes long and each one has one of these characters that Stainboy has to confront, as directed by his boss, Sargeant Glen Dale who is voiced by Glenn Shadix.

Highly recommended. 10/10 stars.
