Young Victor conducts a science experiment to bring his beloved dog Sparky back to life, only to face unintended, sometimes monstrous, consequences.
The mayor of the town is Mr. Burgermeister, which means "mayor" in German. His name/appearance is also a homage to Burgermeister Meisterburger, the antagonist of the stop-motion film Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town (1970).
Science is not good or bad, Victor. But it can be used both ways. That is why you must always be careful.
During the classroom scene when Mr. Rzykruski is explaining the mechanics of lightning, his diagram shows positively charged clouds above the ground, which is shown as being negatively charged by electrons. The diagram should contain negatively charged clouds (containing a surplus of negatively charged electrons) over the ground which should not have any charge.
When the Disney logo has almost completed, a flash of lightning turns the logo black-and-white, the sky turns cloudy and the music turns scary.
