Some things about Victor Edit

  • His favorite sport is baseball
  • He is best friends with his dog
  • He loves inventing new things
  • He loves science and Mr Rzykruski
  • He is older than Elsa van Helsing


  • Victor's relationship with Mr. Rzykruski may parallel that of the relationship between Tim Burton and horror icon and personal hero, Vincent Price .
  • Much like Victor's passion for creating films inspired by monster mania and the world around him; Tim Burton drew inspiration himself from Vincent Price's films and life accomplishments as a child. Perhaps a projection of himself onto the aforementioned Victor-Mr. Rzykruski mentor-ship/idolization, and their characterization.
