Once upon a time (not ABC-Disney’s eponymous show), Tim Burton and Don Bluth were a part of the Disney family. Coincidentally (Coinkidinkily), one of the last projects they shared parts of was The Black Cauldron (Burton designed the The Horned King; Bluth animated a few uncredited scenes).
Anygurgiwantsmunchiesandcrunchies, they share one other similarity: a fascination with dead dogs (not really).

In 1984, the last thing Burton made for Disney was a short film called Frankenweenie. This lead to him getting fired.
As for Bluth, All Dogs Go to Heaven ended his short streak of hits. Even though it developed spin-offs, it was mostly a flop following the highly successful An American Tail and The Land Before Time films. (RIP Judith Barsi)

Why does it seem even creepier animated than the original which was live-action?!
Wasn’t this sticker enough?!?!
Perhaps the alternate isn’t much better:
(Get it? Dylan Dog? Dead of Night?)
