The Nightmare Before Christmas

The Nightmare Before Christmas

Jack Skellington, the pumpkin king of Halloweentown, is bored with “doing” Halloween year in and year out. So when Jack stumbles upon Christmastown he’s completely taken with the idea of Christmas and sets about enlisting Halloweentown’s resident bats, ghouls, and goblins to help him put on his own version of Christmas … but alas, they just can't get it right.
