Editorial Cartoon: Frankenweenie

Bearman Cartoons Frankenweenie

Tim Burton is remaking Frankenweenie.  Frankenweenie was originally a  short film that he did in 1984.  Well he is updating it to a full length feature film.

I am sorry but that has to be the most unfortunate name for a movie.  Somehow I would have thought that an adult film would be named that.

  1. I imagine the adult version of the movie would probably be named something much worse!

    Seems like a rather severe alternative to Viagra, don’t you think?

    I was married to one of those guys once. It wasn’t fun either. Just saying.

    Have a terrific day. 🙂

  4. Tony McGurk says:

    I’ve never heard of Frankenweenie. Sounds interesting. So he gets a weenie to rise up??? Sounds like a porn movie

  5. nursemyra says:

    Is that a weenie or a leg rising out of your couch potato?

  6. I admire Tim’s original take on things and his ability to make his movies with his personal vision but I don’t usually like the movies very much. Maybe this one will be different.

    I don’t find it too bad but I’m sure teen boys will have fun with it.
    I think the most sexually named movie was “the spy who shagged me”. What not just replace “shagged” with “screwed”? I’m surprised they got away with it but then again 007 tangled with pussy galore.

  8. DadaHyena says:

    As long as we don’t see a stitched-together weenie we should be all right. After all, it can’t be any worse than most of Tim Burton’s latest movies.

  9. Coasterbear says:

    Hmmm, wasn’t Frankenweenie the subtitle of the movie John Wayne Bobbit made years ago?

  10. Hahaha…
    considering how we usually seem to ‘agree’ on films, I’ll wait for your official review before I decide to watch it or not.

  11. That is a really bad name. You think Disney would have asked to change the name or something.

  12. Jenn says:

    hahah!!! this was definitely an inappropriate name!

    I loved, loved, loved the original short. I want to get excited about this one, but every time I watch the preview or see screen shots and the dog appears…well there it is “Family Dog”, a blatant rip off of the Family Dog character. Then I start missing “Amazing Stories” and the Family Dog series and I get sad.

    I was so hoping the dog would look at least similar to the Bull Terrier used in the original short and not be a blatant rip off of another loved character from my childhood. I know, get over it dude, folks do it all the time, but seriously…Tim Burton can’t come up with an original concept for the dog. Come On! Getting off my soap box.

  14. Hmm. Sleep would be a good alternative to a Tim Burton movie. Why didn’t I think of that for Batman?

  15. G says:

    Remaking a movie that he did as a short, eh?

    Must mean that no one in Hollywood wants his sorry ass for a director anymore.

    • Bearman says:

      He doesn’t seem to be starving.

      • G says:

        Probably not.

        But it seems that if a director (or a musician for that matter) needs to redo somthing that he’s already done because he has nothing else lined up, then maybe he should pause and give serious thought about why he’s trying to do this in the first place.

        • Bearman says:

          No I look it as a director who had no money in the beginning to do the movie he wanted. Now that he can get backing he can go back and do his pet project.

  16. Friggin Loon says:

    Are you sure that’s a leg, Bearman? Any why do all the tonos only have one arm?

  17. Miss R says:

    Bearman, dig this one. You are an amazing writer… you did a SFW cartoon that’s still TOO funny and right on the mark. Bravo, as always

  18. Brandon says:

    I must see this movie. As for the sleeping…ya, that’s me. It takes a lot to wake me up.

  19. jynksie says:

    HAH! …. I couldn’t do this one any better! [applauds]

  20. Nate Fakes says:

    Jeez. That’s almost as bad of a name as FrankenSchlong

  21. Deb says:

    Ha ha ha! I showed this comic to my husband and he wanted to know what I was implying…sheez, all I did was show it to him!
