No module named Tkinter

I have a small script in python2.7 that I want to convert into Windows executable. I use

top, left = coor.split("x")
top = int(top.strip())
left = int(left.strip())
return top, left

def plot_location(top, left):
img= mpimg.imread('nbahalfcourt.jpg')
plt.scatter(left, top)

def main():
top, left = get_inputs()
plot_location(top, left)

I have a feeling that matplotlib uses the Tkinter module internally, but imports it in a non-standard way. Then pyinstaller doesn't notice Tkinter is needed, and subsequently doesn't bundle it into the executable.

Try explicitly putting import Tkinter at the top of your script.
