Remake of the 1984 short film of the same name follows a young Frankenstein as he attempts to reanimate the corpse of his beloved pet.

When Victor's pet dog, Sparky, is killed by a car whilst chasing his first-ever home run, he embarks on a quest to bring him back to life, successfully doing so with a jolt of lightning -- only to find that his experiment brings unintended, and sometimes monstrous, consequences.
