Elsa Van Helsing is the tritagonist of Tim Burton's 2012 stop-motion Disney film Frankenweenie.


Elsa Van Helsing is a 10-year-old soulful and serious classmate of Victor Frankenstein. She lives next door to him with her tyrant uncle, Mayor Burgermeister, who forces her to be this year's "Little Dutch Girl" at the town's Dutch Day celebration. Elsa also has a beloved pet, her poodle Persephone, and truly empathizes with Victor when he loses Sparky. She is the object of Victor's affections. Her appearance looks like a female counterpart to Victor. Although she and Victor may not show it, but the two neighbors appear to harbour romantic affections towards each other.



Elsa is living with her uncle Mr. Burgermeister while her parents are away, and he is forcing her to be the Little Dutch Girl for the celebration, which she doesn't want to do.


  • Elsa Van Helsing bears a strong physical resemblance to Lydia Deetz, a character from Tim Burton's 1988 film, Beetlejuice. Winona Ryder, Elsa's voice actress, also played Lydia.
  • Elsa's surname is a reference to Professor Abraham Van Helsing, a prominent character from Bram Stoker's 1897 horror novel Dracula, who is Dracula's nemesis.
  • Elsa being kidnapped and terrorized by the Vampire Cat may draw parallel to Winona Ryder's portrayal of Mina Harker in Bram Stoker's Dracula.
  • Elsa's first name was named after the actress Elsa Lanchester, the woman who starred opposite Boris Karloff in Bride Of Frankenstein as the titular character.
  • Elsa's parents are never revealed in the movie.
  • Victor Frankenstein is also older than her.
  • Elsa is the similar of Temari from Naruto.
  • This Elsa was introduced a year before the Elsa from Frozen, although it is the other Elsa that more people are familiar with, largely due to the level of success of the film and the song "Let It Go".
  • Her last name is the same as Ericka Van Helsing from Hotel Transylvania 3 released six years later.
