Best Tim Burton Characters

The Top Ten

1 Edward in Edward Scissorhands

YESNIP SNIP SNIP

2 Jack Skellington in The Nightmare Before Christmas Jack Skellington in The Nightmare Before Christmas

Is this even a question? He’s a Disney icon. He has way more merch and a much larger reputation then Scissorhands. Just ask the guy in Kentucky.

He's so cool! How can anybody dislike him? He is cool, curious and (tries to be) loyal to children! His design is amazing too.

I JACK THE KING OF THE PUMPKIN PATCH! He is just amazing. Love you jack

Should be #1

3 Willy Wonka in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

WHY IS HE ON HERE? JOHNNY DEPP SUCKS AS AN ACTOR AND COMPLETELY DESTROYED THE CHARACTER!

4 Beetlejuice in Beetlejuice

I won a best costume contest dressing up as beetlejuice

One of a kind yet still may remind you of characters from before
