Shelley, also known as the Turtle Monster, is one of the villains in the 2012 film Frankenweenie.

She was actually Toshiaki's dead turtle, Shelley. When he digs up her corpse to use Victor Frankenstein's reanimation secrets on it, the experiment goes awry and the resurrected turtle grows to an extremely tremendous size. She is defeated and turned back to her original, dead state when she steps in an electrocuted puddle of beer.



  • The sounds made by the Turtle Monster are performed by Dee Bradley Baker, who also provided the voices of Mr. Whiskers and Colossus.
  • Turtle Monster's appearance is based on Gamera, a Japanese giant turtle kaiju similar to Godzilla.
  • Turtle Monster's name is based on the author's surname of Frankenstein, Mary Shelley.
