Being that Frankenweenie is a animated movie directed by Tim Burton, I was looking forward to all sorts of strangeness at the premiere.  What I witnessed was an uncanny combination of the movie’s human stars and canine celebrities strut their stuff on the white carpet (fortunately, no one inappropriately urinated).

In attendance were some of Frankenweenie’s stars who lent their voices to the movie’s characters:

John August (Frankenweenie’s screenwriter)

Tim Burton
