* NoAntagonist: Throughout the movie, Victor and Sparky have to deal with mean adults, questionable children and mindless monsters, but there is no single antagonist causing the central conflict, which is learning to accept the undead dog.

Added DiffLines:

** The general premise of the movie (a person's loved one is killed, and out of grief he digs up the corpse and resurrects it, creating a myriad of unintended consequences) seems very much like an homage to ''PetSematary,'' down to the loved one being run over while chasing a toy of some kind. The use of the ''Music/TheRamones''' ''Pet Sematary'' seems to compound this only further.

Victor Frankenstein is a young boy who creates movies starring his dog, [[ThemeNaming Sparky]]. After Sparky is hit by a car, Victor learns at school about electrical impulses in muscles, and gets the idea to bring his pet back to life. He creates elaborate machines which bring down a bolt of [[LightningCanDoAnything lightning]] that revives the dog. While Victor is pleased, his neighbors are terrified by the animal, and when the Frankensteins decide to introduce the revitalized Sparky to them, they become angry and afraid. The movie was first made as a short film in 1984 by Creator/TimBurton for Creator/{{Disney}}, which resulted in his termination from the studio under the idea the movie was too scary for children. The film was [[ScrewedByTheNetwork shelved]] and didn't see the light in [[UsefulNotes/TheUnitedStates]] theaters but managed a [[ShortRunInPeru theatrical run in the U.K.]], [[SarcasmMode presumably because British children don't scare as easily as American children.]] Despite the trouble, the film caught the attention of Creator/PaulReubens, who would champion Burton for directing on his film ''Film/PeeWeesBigAdventure'', which would be Burton's feature length film debut.
