Synopsis: When the king of Halloween decides he wants a new holiday, Christmas will never be the same.

About the Author: TIM BURTON was born and raised in Burbank, California. He attended the California Institute of Arts and soon after began a career as an animator at The Walt Disney Studios. He made his directing debut with the animated short, Vinvent. The film was a critical success and an award winner on the festival circuit. His celebrated films include Pee Wee's Big Adventure, Beetlejuice, Batman, Edward Scissorhands, Alice in Wonderland and Frankenweenie. His book of drawings and rhyming verse, The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy and Other Stories was praised by the New York Times for "conveying the pain of an adolescent outsider."
