Mr. Rzykruski is a supporting character in Tim Burton's 2012 film Frankenweenie. He is an eccentric science teacher at Victor Frankenstein's school and is the one who inspires Victor to bring his dog Sparky back to life.


Mr. Rzykruski is the new science teacher at New Holland Elementary School. He has a thick, Eastern European accent and a unique way of explaining things. He connects with his students, but parents misunderstand his passionate teaching style. Mr. Rzykruski serves as a mentor and inspiration to Victor, teaching him that science can do both good and bad things and that if a scientist does not put his heart into his experiment, there could be disastrous consequences.


  • Mr. Rzykruski bears a strong physical resemblance to acclaimed horror icon Vincent Price (a favorite actor of Tim Burton's).
