Shelley is actually Toshiaki's dead pet turtle. Shelley is the climax antagonist of Frankenweenie.


She looks like showa gamera but doesn't have the fangs on the sides and is missing 28 meter's(32 meters)

Personality Edit

seems to be very agitated and revengeful


When Toshiaki digs it up to use Victor Frankenstein's reanimaton secrets on it, the experiment goes awry and the resurrected turtle grows to an enormous Gamera

a-sized turtle after getting doused with MiracGrowGro whilst being struck by the lightning.

Turtle Monster then begins to rampage around the town and then the dutch day festival stomping and crashing cars, destroying everything in sight. Toshiaki needs Victor's help to resolve his problems, so Victor and Toshiaki and Bob went to the dutch day festival to stop The Turtle Monster, Toshiaki went to the ferris wheel to take a video on his monster pet but the beast approached Toshiaki and began to attack him, however Victor managed to stop the beast after throwing a live cable into the puddle Shelley was standing in, thus elecrocuting the monster and reverting it back into the dead turtle it once was.
