ParaNorman - Trailer

And to demonstrate the extent of Tim Burton's influence - the puppet animation, the gothic look & feel, the gloomy content, the weirdo central character ("You can't be a hero by being normal"): Chris Butler & Sam Fell's Scooby Doo-influenced ParaNorman:

Kinda like an animated Sixth Sense. Not quite for kids then. It seems fun, but doesn't quite have the intimacy or artistic flair of vintage Burton, but nice puppet work, below.
