This animated tale looks like a cross between The Hunchback of Notre Dame (Igor has the same body type) and The Corpse Bride (which also features ghoulish characters). Winning the science fair is also the greatest dream of a young man in Meet the Robinsons. Another nutty squirrel acts as a sidekick in the movie Hoodwinked. The challenges of immortality are explored in the film Groundhog Day.
