I know, I know, it’s only August, but before you know it October will be at our door!! Mom and I were excited when we were contacted by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. They wanted to tell us about their new film FRANKENWEENIE A Film By TIM BURTON of  (Alice in Wonderland, The Nightmare Before Christmas) fame! They asked if we would tell you about this film and we are happy to oblige.

The movie is about Tim Burton’s OWN relationship with his childhood dog, (Sparky).

It is a heart-warming tale, which was filmed in all black & white  (that in itself is pretty cool!)  and it is animated. FRANKENWEENIE (yep, keep FRANKENSTEIN in your mind!) Follows “Victor” (Tim Burton as a child), and how he dealt with the unexpected loss of his beloved dog Sparky and how he tried to bring him back to life. Get ready for some “unintended, monstrous consequences!!!”

Check out the trailer below:

Mom is also going to be attending an advanced screening in our area and when she goes we will be sure to tell you all about it!! I sure wish that I could go!

Barks and licks and Walt Disney love,



We were not compensated for this post. However,  the advanced screening will be free. Mom is greatly looking forward to it!

  14. An all black and white cartoon? Hmm..I wonder if it will keep kids attention? Interesting. 🙂 Hope you enjoy!

    • Well Simba, this is Dakota’s Mom here…when I was a kid….ALL TV was black & White and it sure kept MY attention! And…this isn’t “traditional” animation (it isn’t a cartoon)….being that the movie has a monster theme (which many kids love)…it will have a creepy, Halloween effect which should go over big but we will see, you could be right, one never knows! Nevertheless it sure sounds interesting! Have a great rest of your day!

      • Ohhh! Ok I see…interesting! Well enjoy it!

      • Thanks!! Not to mention, as I mentioned to Snoopy above…have you ever seen the movie Young Frankenstein? That is entirely in black & white and is a hilarious classic!!! Hey, cut me some slack…I’m older than dirt…… Love, “Mom”

      • No I haven’t ever seen that…might have to check them both out..I might be missing out! I have watched black and white shows…I Love Lucy! So your slack is cut! LOL I’m sure you’re not older than dirt!!!! 😛

      • Ummm….yes I am 🙂 Love, Mom

  15. Oh it looks amazing!! Yes please do tell us all about it!! We really really would like to see this – it sounds so sweet!! Take care

    • Old Kitty I love your enthusiasm too!!! I promise I will!!!! Love, “Mom”

  17. OMD! This is so exciting! We’re major Tim Burton fans here, looking furward to a terrific film. Love that it’s in Black & white….very dramatic!

    • Hi Prudence!! Mom is sooo looking forward to it too! We agree with you about the Black & White, that will be super dramatic! Barks and licks and love, Dakota and Mom

  18. Hey Dakota,

    Maybe it’s a good thing you don’t get to go to the movies, cos if there are any sad bits no-one will see you crying?! 🙂

    I’ve never seen a Black and White movie – should be cool – loved seeing him playing with his ball in the trailer – I thought maybe they’d have kept the ball yellow, but nope, everything was Black and White! 🙂

    Have fun,

    Your pal Snoopy 🙂

    • Snoopy my Mom can’t get over that you have NEVER seen a BLACK & WHITE movie!? Tell your Mum to rent Young Frankenstein….it’s hilarious!!!!

      Yeah I for sure don’t want to cry!!

      Barks and licks and love, Dakota
