    • Nightmare Before Christmas -

    • Fun Facts:

    • Chris Sarandon “Prince Humperdink” is the speaking voice of Jack while Danny ELfman is the singing voice or Jack and others.

    • In 2001, Walt Disney Pictures began to consider producing a sequel, but rather than using stop motion, Disney wanted to use computer animation. Tim Burton convinced Disney to drop the idea. "I was always very protective of [Nightmare] not to do sequels or things of that kind," Burton explained. "You know, 'Jack visits Thanksgiving world' or other kinds of things just because I felt the movie had a purity to it and the people that like it."

    • Oogie Boogie was originally intended to be Dr. Finklestein in disguise. Reportedly, Tim Burton was so infuriated by this idea that he literally kicked a hole into the wall.

    • It took a group of around 100 people three years to complete this movie. For one second of film, up to 12 stop-motion moves had to be made.

    • Walt Disney's second fully animated film to have a PG rating, the first being The Black Cauldron (1985).

    • Some of the presents Jack delivers to the kids are nods to Tim Burton films. The snake looks like a Sandworm from Beetlejuice (1988),and the shrunken head is from the afterlife waiting room in the same film. The Cat and Duck are both featured in Batman Returns (1992) - the Cat as the mascot for Shreck's department store, the duck resembling a vehicle driven by the Penguin.
