They have been partners in crime since making Edward Scissorhands together in 1990.
And Johnny Depp and Tim Burton looked like a pair of naughty brothers as they posed together in Las Vegas today.
The dynamic duo were teaming once again to promote their upcoming film Dark Shadows at the CinemaCon convention in Caesar's Palace.
Partners in crime: Johnny Depp and Tim Burton teamed up to promote Dark Shadows in Las Vegas today
The pair looked pleased to have reunited for the event, where they were appearing as part of the Warner Bros Pictures Present The Big Pictures 2012 show.
Tim took to the stage wearing while wearing black sunglasses to talk about his upcoming film, which is his eighth collaboration with Johnny, whom he invited from the wings by saying: 'Come on, Sweetsie.'
During the presentation the director admitted to having an obsession with the show as a youngster, and that it even kept him from his homework.
That's a relief: The actor will have been pleased to get out of his Lone Ranger Tonto make-up for his appearance
Out of the shadows: The star looked cheery as he waved to fans as he walked onto the stage
Did I leave the gas on? The star looked worried about something as he ran his finger through his hair
He joked: 'That's why I was such a lousy student.
Amazingly, he said only himself, Johnny and Michelle Pfeiffer remembered the show from everyone on set.
Tim added the pair 'have a very strange love of weird cultural phenomenon.'
The Batman director's presentation had some big competition at the event, most notably Christopher Nolan's own take on the character, as he showed new footage of The Dark Knight Rises.
The English director promised a 'thrilling conclusion' to the trilogy, adding: 'We wanted to finish this in the biggest way possible.'
A slice of ham: No doubt Johnny will provide a characteristically over-the-top performance in the film
