Jack Skellington, the Pumpkin King, portrays Santa Claus in Tim Burton's Halloween analogue, The Nightmare Before Christmas, a stop-motion animated film. One night, Jack decides he's had enough of putting on scare nights for the seedy residents of Halloweentown and sets out to discover the world. He finds Christmastown and is immediately captivated. To bring Christmas to Halloweentown, Jack is willing to do anything, even if it means kidnapping Santa. Nothing Jack plans ever goes as smoothly as he hopes. Unfortunately, we won't be able to enjoy the holidays with our current living situation. A coffin-shaped sled pulled by skeletal robo-reindeer, gifts that terrify their recipients, shrunken heads, and snakes that devour Christmas trees (all done in a way that isn't too scary for kids) are just some of the things Jack tries and fails at. Jack has the military pursue him on Christmas Eve and destroy his sled with gunfire.
