Awesome director with a minor touch of insanity, among other things. Originally started working at Disney, on the animation team for The Fox and the Hound. Has since went on to direct movies such as Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands, and Mars Attacks!, as well as two shorts. Also has a freakish relationship with Danny Elfman.

Get the Tim Burton mug.
One of the most talented and influential directors of this generation.
With films such as:
The Nightmare Before Christmas
Edward Scissorhands
Mars Attacks!
Charlie & The Chocolate Factory

And many others....this mans unirvalled talent and imagination have made him the Cult Icon he is today.

He's also a bit mad....but who isn't eh
Willy Wonka: Eat my grass!
Kid: It's Eadible???
Willy Wonka: Everything in my factory is eat-able, even i am eat-able but that is called cannibalism and is frowned upon in most societies.

Tim Burton: "Hmm, who should I cast as the female lead in my film?"
(His girlfriend (Helena Bonham Carter) looks threateningly at him)
Tim Burton: "Oh Yes! Of course honey, I'll cast you!"

The man who makes magic completely fill you up, and when you watch any of his films you never want to return to reality. He takes risks, dares to be different, makes us laugh and at the same time makes us fill with sadness, sympathy and every other emotion known to us. He can relate to everyone and he manages to always tickle that spot deep down in you that makes you think, not everyone can do this. He is undoubtadly a King.
you'll get hooked so easily, but you dont mind

Tim Burton is the ultimate dream maker

Many believe that he is just a director for 14 year old slaves to the emo fad, but he is the greatest director ever and the sole person that inspired me to become a filmmaker.
Tim Burton - the greatest filmmaker ever

stupid emo kid: Oh my god, I love Nightmare Before Christmas. I have Jack Skellington bracelets. Blah blah blah. Fag fag fag.

Real fan: Shut the fuck up and get a life! Many believe that he is just a director for 14 year old slaves to the emo fad, but he is the greatest director ever and the sole person that inspired me to become a filmmaker.

1) an inspiration to many who aspire to be directors. He makes many think "Holy shit! I could make a way better movie than this guy!"

2) The act of making a shitty movie with an overrated actor who is liked by a bunch of confused 14 year-olds.

3) A sellout who is only popular in "Hot-Topic" culture.
A:Have you seen Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory?
B:The one with Gene Wilder?
A:No, the one directed by Tim Burton, you know, the one where Johnny Depp looks like Michael Jacson.
B: Fuck that, man! I'd rather give up my left testicle than waste $7 and 2 horus of my life to see that movie.
A: Yeah, I think that Hellen Keller could've made a better movie than him.

2) Hey Johnny, It's Tim. I'm going to make a movie about a bunch of stupid ass characters made out of clay.
Tim, that ship has sailed. Can we do a pirate movie together?
No, not until you give me anal again.
Okay. Gimme the script.

3) Confused Goth Girl: OMFG!!!! I love Tim Buron so much. I practically worship Johnny Depp! I would give my soul to see him and I want to have his babies. I am confused about my sexuality, but I know I love Johnny Depp!
