I admit, I was a little disappointed at the character designs (mainly Victor) because I expected something at least a little different or unique other than what we got in Corpse Bride, which is my most favorite of his films. But either way, it's a cool similarity of Victor Frankenstein to Victor Van Dort.
Did I mention that I have a crossover theory that Victor is a time traveler and that he's the kid in Frankenweenie as well as our favorite Victor here? (You know? Young!Victor just, like, invented a time machine and ended up getting his memory wiped or something when it didn't work right... a few kinks here and there, but IT'S THE FUCKING THOUGHT THAT COUNTS!!!!)
