Frankenweenie - you told us your wacky inventions!
- 8 October 2012
Tim Burton's latest film, Frankenweenie, is about a boy who invents a machine to bring his dog back to life.
The director is famous for films about crazy inventions and this week Joe is going to meet the mad professor himself.
We asked you to send us your crazy inventions so that when Joe meets Tim your ideas might be seen by the world-famous director.
Here's what you came up with!

"I would invent a robot that produces a very small piece of breakfast gum: you can select 1-3 types of things for breakfast, e.g. bacon, egg, beans, or cereal, then it makes a piece of gum which has them in, then when you get to school you can swallow it and it won't harm you. A small piece of gum would be much easier then taking ages to eat your breakfast!"
