Tim Burton's new stop-motion movie "" has dropped its very first clip.

He tries to hide his home-sewn creation, but when Sparky gets out, Victor's fellow students, teachers and the entire town all learn that getting a new "leash on life" can be monstrous.

Burton directed the black-and-white animation in addition to producing it with Allison Abbate. Lining up in the voice cast ensemble are , , , , Charlie Tahan, , , Robert Capron and .

The movie will hit theaters across the U.S. on October 5.
