12 Best Characters Tim Burton Created

December 26, 2013

1. Barbara and Adam


Barbara and Adam from Beetlejuice in 1988. This cult classic film was way ahead of its time. The two characters are somewhat mutually responsible for the creation of this bizarre and haunting comedic presentation. They are funny, loving, daring, and dramatic all at the same time.

2. The Knave of Hearts


The Knave of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland in 2010. This character works with one of the most devious and dark hearted women in the world, or at least in Wonderland. His character is beaten down and battered with a heart shaped patch upon his one eye. He is sad, and defeated, yet still trying to make his mark in history.

3. Edward


Edward from Edward Scissorhands in 1990. This character was shy, withdrawn, and a little flirty at times. He is the embodiment of someone who is bullied, neglected, mistreated, and misshapen with scissors for hands. Yet, through it all he finds success, love, and happiness.

4. Mrs. Lovett


Mrs. Lovett from Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street in 2007. Played by Tim burton’s wife, this character is the epitome of darkness. She is a beggar who falls in love with a murderous barber and then bakes pies out of the meat that is taken from the victims. She is sweet and hopeful on the outside, and a drunken accomplice to murder and cannibalism behind the mask.

5. Miss Spider


Miss Spider from James and the Giant Peach in 1996. This spider is extremely kind and loving toward the main character James and kind of takes all of the terrifying fear away from spiders for an hour and makes fans love them even if just for a minute. She is sultry and sad, yet still finds compassion for a human.

6. Veruca Salt


Veruca Salt from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory in 2005. This character finds one of the “golden tickets” to be able to visit the chocolate factory in the movie.

She is a very animated actress playing a character who is unsatisfied at all times and constantly demands more from her father and those around her. That is until she meets her demise chasing after a prized possess that she wants.

7. Barnabas Collins


Barnabas Collins from Dark Shadows in 2012. This character has suffered for many years from being over shadowed by another supernatural being from his past. He shows fans what it is like to overcome adversity while still having style.

8. The Martian Girl


The Martian Girl from Mars Attacks in 1996. This movie was iconic with Martin Short playing opposite from the Martian girl. She is perky and beautiful and completely out of this world. With the ulterior motive to sneak in to the White House, she is truly the representation of a beautiful woman with wicked intentions.

9. Lord Barkis


Lord Barkis Bittern from the Corpse Bride in 2005. This is one of Tim Burton’s best villainous characters that have been created to date. He has a strong figure and a domineering spirit through out the movie while he tries to carry out his terrible plot.

10. The Oompa-Loompas


The Oompa-Loompas from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory in 2005. These characters helped to move the scenes forward and connect the plot twists through song and Technicolor dance.

11. The Headless Horseman


The Headless Horseman from Sleepy Hollow in 1999. This character takes the screen by storm and creates a terrifying portrayal of the iconic children’s story villain. This character is scary without even having to say a word.

12. The Mayor Halloween Town


The Mayor of Halloween Town from The Nightmare Before Christmas in 1993. This character has two sides of his face that shift back and forth to reflect his mood. If only it were that easy to show people how you feel by spinning your head around.
