Oogie Boogie

Day 8: Oogie Boogie is the main antagonist in The Nightmare Before Christmas, Tim Burton and Danny Elfman’s second film to hit this list. When Jack kidnaps Santa Clause, the three Halloween Town kids take Santa to Oogie Boogie despite Jack’s wishes. Shut away from the rest of town, Oogie Boogies lair is a casino/fun house lit in black light. He is a terrible gambler, often cheating to get the dice rolls he wants,¬†with the plan to add Santa to his batch of snake and spider stew.

Oogie Boogie is basically a burlap sack full of bugs, and a few spiders, and maybe a snake or two. He is the representation of the boogeyman, and is much more evil and scheming than the rest of Halloween Town, who just want to scare people for the enjoyment of the holiday. He is voiced by Ken Page in every appearance.

Did you know: Oogie Boogie was going to be Dr. Finklestein in the suit, mad at Jack because Sally had fallen in love with him, but Tim Burton scrapped the idea.
