Halloween Stories (shorts by Tim Burton)

Vincent is a 1982 stop-motion short horror film written, designed and directed by Tim Burton. It is the second Disney's horror film, the first being The Watcher in the Woods.  
The film is narrated by Vincent Price, a lifelong idol and inspiration for Burton. Vincent Price was an American actor, well known for his distinctive voice as well as his serio-comic performances in a series of horror films made in the latter part of his career.

The Nightmare Before Christmas is a 1993 American stop-motion musican fantasy film directed by Henry Selick and produced/co-written by Tim Burton. It tells the story of Jack Skellington, a being from "Halloween Town" who opens a portal to "Christmas Town" and decides to celebrate the holiday with some dastardly and comical consequences. 

It originated in a poem written by Tim Burton in 1982, while he was working as an animator at Walt Disney Animation Studios after the success of Vincent in the same year.
