The King of Halloween
Jack Skellington is the hero of Disney Studios’ stop motion animation The Nightmare Before Christmas. Jack is a living skeleton and has a knack for putting up the creepiest Halloween decorations and pranks. This comes in handy because he is the leader of the Halloween festivities in the town. Unfortunately, for the past few years, Jack hasn’t really felt the excitement of scaring people on Halloween. So he goes into the woods in search of inspiration and accidentally ends up in Christmas Village where everyone seems happy. He thinks this is the solution to his problem and decides to have Christmas instead of Halloween. But it’s not easy to make the townspeople understand this concept and very quickly, Jack will realize that it’s not what he was missing in his life but something simpler: love.
A terrifying face
Jack is shown here making a rather terrifying scowl where he pulls at the sides of his mouth, revealing numerous sharp teeth as well as his snake-like split tongue. His eyebrows are also furrowed to add to the ferocity of the expression. Otherwise, we find his usual black and white striped suit with a tails jacket and his bat-shaped bow tie. His hands are white and skeletal.
