Synopsis:
Tired of being an object of fear for small children, Jack Skellington, the Pumpkin King of Halloweentown, sets out to replace Santa Claus and oversee Christmas festivities for a year. A trio of ghastly ghouls is assigned to the task of kidnapping Saint Nick; meanwhile, Jack attends to the Yuletide activities, giving them a frightful new twist in the process.

Reviews:
"...Delectably ghoulish....A major step forward for both stop-motion animation [and for Burton]..." - 10/09/1993 New York Times, p.13


"...A rich, inventive score by Danny Elfman..." - 12/01/1994 Sight and Sound, p.53-4


"...Charming...A terrific package..." -- Rating: A - 12/23/1994 Entertainment Weekly, p.81


"...A feast for the eyes and the imagination..." - 10/27/2000 Chicago Sun-Times, p.40


"...First, go for the story. Then go back just to look in the corners of the screen, and appreciate the little visual surprises and inspirations that are tucked into every nook and cranny..." - 10/22/1993 Chicago Sun-Times, p.34


5 stars out of 5 -- "[With] vivid background characters, underplayed by deeply felt relationships, priceless gags and thoroughly hummable tunes which inspire varied and imaginative musical sequences." - 01/01/2008 Empire, p.198-199
