A scene from The Island of Doctor Agor.

The Island of Doctor Agor is a 1971 American short animated film written and directed by then-thirteen-year-old Tim Burton, who also starred in the title role of Doctor Agor. The short is one of Burton's first animated films, and was adapted by Burton from the H. G. Wells story The Island of Doctor Moreau.

In the 2006 book Burton on Burton, Burton himself specifically speaks of the film when recounting his early days making Super 8 films.
