Jack Skellington is the King of Halloween. He becomes bored with the same routine every year. He decides to take a walk in the woods. There, he discovered a door leading to Christmastown and decides to spread Christmas joy to the world. When he is back in Halloweentown he shows his friends what Christmas is like, and he suggests doing Christmas this year instead. But things do not go as planned when Oogie Boogie, an evil gambling boogey man, plots to play a game with Santa Claus' life and creates a nightmare for all the good little boys and girls everywhere. Although Sally attempts to stop him, Jack embarks into the sky on a coffin-like sled pulled by skeletal reindeer.

A parody of the famous "Night before Christmas" poem by Moore, Burton wrote this and illustrated it while employed at Disney. This is a wonderful film that will be enjoyed for generations to come. I cannot begin to grasp the opinion in the other comment on here as Burton wrote this and designed all the characters. To say that it wasn't his movie is utter nonsense. After all it is called Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas. I highly recommend this movie for everyone other than small children as it could give them quite a fright.
