Check out Tim Burton’s Lost Version of Hansel and Gretel!

In the halcyon days before Pee Wee’s Big Adventure, Tim Burton made several short films, including Vincent, Frankenweenie, the Faerie Tale Theatre production of Aladdin and His Wonderful Lamp, and an episode of Alfred Hitchcock Presents called “The Jar.” Possibly the weirdest of these early works was his whimsical production of Hansel and Gretel, which was aired only once, in 1983, on the Disney Channel, at 10:30 on Halloween night. After many years of people believing they’d had a truly unique hallucination, the film was shown at MoMA’s Tim Burton retrospective in 2009. And now, suddenly, it’s popped up on YouTube. We’re accepting this as a late (or early?) Halloween gift from the internet!
