Notable for launching the careers of Creator/TimBurton and DannyElfman (his film composer career, [[Music/OingoBoingo anyway]]), though Reubens was the real person in-charge. A lesser-known factoid is that much of the film's atmosphere is based on the 1982 no-budget cult film ''Film/ForbiddenZone'': Burton and Reubens were both huge fans of the film, and their decision to hire DannyElfman was based on his work with the ''Forbidden Zone'' group. The movie was written by Reubens and the late great Creator/PhilHartman.
