Also, I forgot to add that Burton started his film career by doing Frankenstein, so to speak. I think it is his very first film, a short called Frankenweenie. It is about a dog being brought to life. It is highly referential to the 1931 movie, with the Frankendog (yes, it's a dachshund) meeting a fiery end at at minature golf course's windmll.
Unsurprisingly, the film is thematically very similar to Edward Scissorhands. I did like that picture, actually, it's a quirky little romp.
