Check It. Danny Elfman & Tim Burton 25th Anniversary Music Box.

Could you ever imagine at Tim Burton film without that wonderful, wistful score? It's all the work of composer Danny Elfman, and now the two are set to celebrate 25 years of working together. And only a collaboration like theirs could deserve a celebration like this.

The Danny Elfman and Tim Burton 25th anniversary music box is a collection of all the composer's and filmmaker's works together, featuring artwork by Burton and exclusive musical clips from Elfman. The set is filled with everything you could ever really imagine, from a special collectible zoetrope box designed by Burton and Elfman, to a 16-soundtrack set covering Pee Wee's Big Adventure to Alice in Wonderland, and a 250+ page hardcover book covering their collaboration in pictures and words (with a foreword by Johnny Depp).

The box set, with all of its treats, isn't cheap at $500, but if you're a devoted fan of either Burton or Elfman, it really provides all you could ever need. And if you need a primer on the history between the two, KCRW recently had a great interview with Elfman.

The Danny Elfman and Tim Burton 25th anniversary music box isn't technically available until Feb. 2011, but can be pre-ordered here, for the sake of making a fantastic Christmas gift.
