The Nightmare Before Christmas is a great movie, but it’s also full of great characters. Here’s a list of all the main characters from the film and what they do. Today we will talk about the most popular nightmare before Christmas characters.
These Characters make a great movie
This movie is a great holiday tradition. The story, characters, and music are all top-notch. It’s an animated film that has become a staple of the season for generations of families to enjoy together.
More than just a cute Christmas story, Nightmare Before Christmas delivers on all levels: great animation, fun characters, and memorable songs (if you’re not familiar with “Let It Go” from Frozen it’s worth checking out).
1. Jack Skellington
Jack Skellington is the main character of Nightmare Before Christmas. He is a skeleton who lives in Halloween Town, USA and he is also known as the Pumpkin King.
He has brown hair, and gray eyes, and wears a black suit with white trimming around his neck and wrists. His suit also has white stripes on it but they’re not visible because they blend into his skin tone when he’s wearing clothes (which makes him look even more ghostly).
Sally is Jack’s love interest, and she’s a rag doll. Her name is short for Sarah, a name that means “crown of beauty” in Hebrew. Sally is the daughter of the mayor of Halloween Town, who wants her to be good according to his standards. He has strict rules about what makes up a “good girl”:
- She must clean her room before leaving it (this includes picking up all her toys).
- She must not argue with anyone at school or in class.
3. Lock, Shock, and Barrel
The three henchmen of Oogie Boogie are the Bug Brothers, Lock, Shock, and Barrel. They are three bugs who work for their master in his creepy Halloween Town. These characters have been featured in many different Nightmare Before Christmas sequels and spin-offs as well as being featured in animated TV shows like Phineas & Ferb.
They are green, red, and blue creatures with angry expressions on their faces when they’re not being mischievous or annoying people. They also seem to be eager to get out of Disney World so they can go back home where there’s more money to be made selling fake stuff like lamps that glow because they’re alive inside them.
4. Oogie Boogie
Oogie Boogie is a villain in Nightmare Before Christmas. He tries to take over Christmas with his army of monsters, but he’s always foiled by Jack Skellington and Sally. He has a song that he sings while dancing around, “I’m going to get you, Santa Claus.”
Oogie Boogie is an evil spider that lives in a castle full of spiders (hence the name). He can transform into other things as well! In fact, Oogie Boogie has many forms: A giant spider, an angry giant bat monster with sharp teeth, etc…
5. Dr. Finklestein
Dr. Finklestein is the creator of Sally and the other characters. He is a mad scientist, toymaker, and inventor. He has a laboratory full of scientific equipment, including an atomic bomb that can destroy cities. He also has a collection of creepy robots that look like humans but are not really human at all – they have no souls or feelings whatsoever. If you get too close to them, they will shoot lasers at your face until you die…
6. Mayor of Halloween Town
The Mayor of Halloween Town is a skeleton who rules over the city. He’s also its main antagonist, as he wants to prevent Christmas from happening and keep Halloween going forever. His name is Mr. Bones, but his real name is unknown because he was once human before being turned into a skeleton by Santa Claus (see below).
7. Santa Claus
Santa Claus is the best at giving gifts. He has a black beard and wears red pajamas that are tucked into his boots. He flies around in his sleigh pulled by reindeer, which are named Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, and Vixen (the names of characters from the film). Santa’s sleigh also has four other reindeer.
There are so many great characters in this movie—even though it’s based on a story by Charles Dickens, which is kind of weird. But the main character is Jack Skellington and he’s just amazing! He first shows up at Christmas time when everyone is having fun and enjoying all their presents, but then he goes away again because his friends got bored with him.
One day Jack comes back with a new friend named Sally who really likes treats like cookies or candy canes. Then they take over Halloween Town while everybody else is sleeping soundly as usual.
