Wasn't it terrifying?

What a night!

0:03:550:03:56

Great Halloween, everybody.

0:03:560:03:58

I believe it was our most horrible yet.

0:03:580:04:01

Thank you, everyone.

0:04:010:04:03

No. Thanks to you, Jack.

0:04:030:04:05

Without your brilliant leadership...

0:04:050:04:07

JACK: Not at all, Mayor.

0:04:070:04:09

You're such a scream, Jack.

0:04:090:04:11

You're a witch's fondest dream.

0:04:110:04:13

You made walls fall, Jack.

0:04:130:04:15

BIG WITCH: Walls fall?

0:04:150:04:17

You made the very mountains crack, Jack.

0:04:170:04:20

The deadly nightshade you slipped me wore off, Sally.

0:04:200:04:24

Let go.

0:04:240:04:25

You're not ready for so much excitement.

0:04:250:04:28

Yes, I am.

0:04:280:04:29

You're coming with me.

0:04:290:04:32

No, I'm not!

0:04:320:04:34

Come back here, you foolish...!

0:04:360:04:38

Ow!

0:04:380:04:40

Ow! Ow!

0:04:400:04:41

Ooh, Jack!

0:04:410:04:43

You made wounds ooze and flesh crawl.

0:04:430:04:46

Thank you.

0:04:460:04:47

Thank you.

0:04:470:04:48

Thank you very much.

0:04:480:04:50

MAYOR: Hold it!

0:04:500:04:52

We haven't given out the prizes yet.

0:04:520:04:55

Our first award goes to the vampires

0:04:550:04:58

for most blood drained in a single evening.

0:04:580:05:01

A second and honourable mention

0:05:010:05:04

goes to the fabulous dark lagoon leeches.

0:05:040:05:07

CLINK Nice work, Bone Daddy.

0:05:130:05:16

Yeah, I guess so.

0:05:160:05:18

Just like last year...

0:05:180:05:20

and the year before that...

0:05:200:05:21

and the year before that.

SALLY GASPS

0:05:310:05:32

# There are few who deny

0:06:010:06:03

# At what I do I am the best

0:06:030:06:06

# For my talents are renowned far and wide

0:06:060:06:09

# When it comes to surprises

0:06:090:06:12

# In the moonlit night

0:06:120:06:14

# I excel without ever even trying

0:06:140:06:18

# With the slightest little effort

0:06:180:06:20

# Of my ghostlike charms

0:06:200:06:22

# I have seen grown men give out a shriek

0:06:220:06:26

# With a wave of my hand

0:06:260:06:29

# And a well-placed moan

0:06:290:06:31

# I have swept the very bravest off their feet

0:06:310:06:35

# Yet, year after year

0:06:350:06:37

# It's the same routine

0:06:370:06:40

# And I grow so weary of the sound of screams

0:06:400:06:45

# And I, Jack

0:06:450:06:47

# The pumpkin king

0:06:470:06:50

# Have grown so tired

0:06:500:06:52

# Of the same old thing

0:06:520:06:55

# Oh, somewhere deep

0:06:580:07:01

# Inside of these bones

0:07:010:07:04

# An emptiness

0:07:040:07:07

# Began to grow

0:07:070:07:09

# There's something out there

0:07:090:07:13

# Far from my home

0:07:130:07:15

# A longing that

0:07:150:07:19

# I've never known

0:07:190:07:25

# I'm the master of fright

0:07:250:07:27

# And a demon of light

0:07:270:07:29

# And I'll scare you right out of your pants

0:07:290:07:33

# To a guy in Kentucky

0:07:330:07:35

# I'm Mr Unlucky

0:07:350:07:38

# And I'm known throughout England and France

0:07:380:07:42

# And since I am dead

0:07:420:07:44

# I can take off my head

0:07:440:07:46

# To recite Shakespearean quotations

0:07:460:07:50

# No animal nor man

0:07:500:07:52

# Can scream like I can

0:07:520:07:54

# With the fury of my recitations

0:07:540:07:58

# But who here

0:07:580:08:01

# Would ever understand

0:08:010:08:04

# That the pumpkin king

0:08:040:08:06

# With the skeleton grin

0:08:060:08:08

# Would tire of his crown?

0:08:080:08:11

# If they only understood

0:08:110:08:14

# He'd give it all up

0:08:140:08:16

# If he only could... #

0:08:160:08:20

SALLY GASPS

0:08:200:08:21

# Oh, there's an empty place in my bones

0:08:210:08:27

# That calls out for

0:08:270:08:30

# Something unknown

0:08:300:08:33

# The fame and praise

0:08:330:08:36

# Come year after year

0:08:360:08:39

# Does nothing for

0:08:390:08:42

# These empty tears. #

0:08:420:08:49

Jack...

0:08:540:08:56

I know how you feel.

0:08:560:08:58

Sally!

0:09:190:09:21

You've come back.

0:09:230:09:25

I had to.

0:09:250:09:27

For this.

0:09:270:09:29

Yes.

0:09:290:09:32

Shall we, then?

0:09:320:09:34

That's twice this month

0:09:450:09:47

you've slipped deadly nightshade into my tea and run off.

0:09:470:09:51

Three times. You're mine, you know!

0:09:510:09:54

I made you with my own hands.

0:09:540:09:58

You can make other creations.

0:09:580:10:00

I'm restless. I can't help it.

0:10:000:10:03

It's a phase, my dear. It'll pass.

0:10:030:10:07

We need to be patient, that's all.

0:10:070:10:10

But I don't want to be patient.

0:10:100:10:13

DOG BARKS

0:10:130:10:15

0:11:180:11:20

I've got the plans for next Halloween.

0:11:200:11:23

I need to go over them with you so we can get started.

0:11:230:11:27

Jack, please, I'm only an elected official here.

0:11:270:11:31

I can't make decisions by myself.

0:11:310:11:34

Jack! Answer me!

0:11:340:11:38

A-A-Aaagh!

0:11:380:11:40

He's not home.

0:11:420:11:44

Where is he?

0:11:440:11:45

He hasn't been home all night.

0:11:450:11:47

# What's this? What's this? There's colour everywhere

0:13:510:13:54

# What's this? There's white things in the air

0:13:540:13:56

# What's this? I can't believe my eyes

0:13:560:13:58

# I must be dreaming Wake up, Jack, this isn't fair

0:13:580:14:01

# What's this?

0:14:010:14:03

# What's this? What's this? There's something very wrong

0:14:030:14:06

# What's this? There's people singing songs

0:14:060:14:08

# What's this? The streets are lined with little creatures laughing

0:14:080:14:11

# Everybody seems so happy Have I possibly gone daffy?

0:14:110:14:14

# What is this? What's this?

0:14:140:14:16

# There's children throwing snowballs Instead of throwing heads

0:14:180:14:21

# They're busy building toys and absolutely no-one's dead

0:14:210:14:24

# There's frost in every window Oh, I can't believe my eyes

0:14:240:14:27

# And in my bones I feel the warmth That's coming from inside

0:14:270:14:33

# Oh, look, what's this? they're hanging mistletoe

0:14:330:14:35

# They kiss? Why, that looks so unique

0:14:350:14:37

# Inspired! They're gathering around

0:14:370:14:39

# To hear a story Roasting chestnuts on a fire

0:14:390:14:42

# What's this?

0:14:420:14:43

# What's this in here? They've got a little tree

0:14:440:14:48

# How queer, and who would ever think, and why?

0:14:480:14:50

# They're covering it with tiny little things

0:14:500:14:52

# They've got electric lights on strings

0:14:520:14:54

# And there's a smile on everyone

0:14:540:14:55

# So now, correct me if I'm wrong

0:14:550:14:57

# This looks like fun This looks like fun

# Oh, could it be I got my wish? What's this?

0:14:580:15:00

# Oh my, what now? The children are asleep

0:15:020:15:05

# But look there's nothing underneath

0:15:050:15:07

# No ghouls, no witches here

0:15:070:15:09

# to scream and scare them Or ensnare them

0:15:090:15:11

# Only little cosy things secure inside their dreamland... #

0:15:110:15:16

A-A-Ahh.

0:15:160:15:18

# What's this?

0:15:180:15:20

# The monsters are a-missing and the nightmares can't be found

0:15:210:15:24

# And in their place there seems to be good feeling all around

0:15:240:15:27

# Instead of screams I swear I can hear music in the air

0:15:270:15:30

# The smell of cakes and pies are absolutely everywhere

0:15:300:15:35

# The sights! the sounds!

0:15:350:15:36

# They're everywhere and all around

0:15:360:15:39

# I've never felt so good

0:15:390:15:40

# Before! This empty place inside of me is filling up

0:15:400:15:43

# I simply cannot get enough

0:15:430:15:44

# I want it, oh, I want it Oh, I want it for my own

0:15:440:15:47

# I've got to know I've got to know

0:15:470:15:49

# What is this place that I have found?

0:15:490:15:51

# What... Is... This? #

0:15:510:15:53

Christmas town?

0:15:570:16:00

Hmm...

0:16:000:16:02

TRAIN WHISTLE BLOWS

0:16:020:16:04

Ho-ho-ho-ho!

0:16:040:16:06

Ho-ho-ho-ho!

0:16:060:16:08

Hmm...

0:16:090:16:11

This has never happened before.

0:16:110:16:13

It's suspicious.

0:16:130:16:14

It's peculiar.

0:16:140:16:15

BOTH: It's scary.

0:16:150:16:16

Stand aside.

0:16:160:16:17

Coming through.

0:16:170:16:19

We've got to find Jack.

0:16:240:16:27

There's only 365 days left till next Halloween.

0:16:270:16:31

364!

0:16:310:16:33

Is there anywhere we've forgotten to check?

0:16:330:16:36

I looked in every mausoleum.

0:16:360:16:39

WITCHES: We opened the sarcophagi.

0:16:390:16:41

I tromped through the pumpkin patch.

0:16:410:16:43

I peeked behind the Cyclops' eye.

0:16:430:16:46

I did, but he wasn't there.

0:16:460:16:49

It's time to sound the alarms.

0:16:490:16:51

ACCELERATING CAT SCREECH

0:16:510:16:54

Frog's breath will overpower any odour.

0:17:190:17:22

Ribbit!

0:17:220:17:24

SALLY COUGHS

0:17:270:17:29

Bitter!

0:17:290:17:31

Worm's wart.

0:17:320:17:34

Where, where is that worm's wart?

0:17:340:17:36

SCIENTIST: Sally?

0:17:370:17:39

Is that soup ready yet?

0:17:390:17:42

Coming!

0:17:440:17:46

Lunch!

0:17:530:17:54

Ah, what's that?

0:17:570:17:59

Worm's wart. Mmm...

0:17:590:18:02

..And frog's breath.

0:18:030:18:06

Well, what's wrong?

0:18:060:18:08

I thought you liked frog's breath.

0:18:080:18:10

Nothing's more suspicious than frog's breath.

0:18:100:18:13

Until you taste it

0:18:130:18:16

I won't swallow a spoonful.

0:18:160:18:18

I'm not hungry.

0:18:180:18:20

Oops.

0:18:200:18:22

You want me to starve!

0:18:220:18:25

An old man like me

0:18:250:18:27

who hardly has strength as it is.

0:18:270:18:29

Me, to whom you owe your very life.

0:18:290:18:33

Oh, don't be silly.

0:18:330:18:35

SALLY SLURPS Mmm! See?

0:18:370:18:40

Scrumptious.

0:18:400:18:42

Did anyone think to dredge the lake?

0:18:490:18:53

Oh, this morning.

0:18:530:18:56

DISTANT BARKING Hear that?

0:18:560:18:59

What?

0:18:590:19:01

Shh!

0:19:010:19:02

BARKING CONTINUES Zero!

0:19:020:19:05

Jack's back!

0:19:070:19:09

Where have you been?

0:19:190:19:20

Call a town meeting

0:19:200:19:22

and I'll tell everyone all about it.

0:19:220:19:24

- When? - Immediately!

0:19:240:19:27

BELL TOLLS

0:19:270:19:29

Town meeting!

0:19:310:19:33

Town meeting!

0:19:330:19:35

Town meeting tonight.

0:19:350:19:38

HE SNORES

0:19:400:19:42

MAYOR: Town meeting!

0:19:420:19:43

Town meeting tonight!

0:19:430:19:45

MANIACAL LAUGHTER

0:19:570:19:59

Listen, everyone.

0:20:030:20:05

I want to tell you about... Christmas town.

0:20:050:20:10

BATS SQUEAK

0:20:100:20:12

# There were objects so peculiar they were not to be believed

0:20:120:20:16

# All around, things to tantalise my brain

0:20:160:20:19

# It's a world unlike anything I've ever seen

0:20:190:20:22

# And as hard as I try I can't seem to describe

0:20:220:20:26

# Like a most improbable dream

0:20:260:20:29

# But you must believe when I tell you this

0:20:290:20:32

# It's as real as my skull

0:20:320:20:35

# And it does exist... #

0:20:350:20:37

Here. Let me show you.

0:20:370:20:40

ALL GASP Ooh!

0:20:420:20:45

# This is a thing called a present

0:20:450:20:47

# The whole thing starts with a box... #

0:20:470:20:49

- A box? - Is it steel?

0:20:490:20:51

- Are there locks? - Is it filled with a pox?

0:20:510:20:53

A pox! How delightful, a pox.

0:20:530:20:55

If you please.

0:20:550:20:56

# Just a box with bright-coloured paper

0:20:560:20:59

# And the whole thing's topped with a bow... #

0:20:590:21:02

A bow? But why?

0:21:020:21:03

How ugly What's in it? What's in it?!

0:21:030:21:05

# That's the point of the thing - not to know

0:21:050:21:07

It's a bat. Will it bend?

0:21:070:21:08

It's a rat. Will it break?

0:21:080:21:10

Perhaps it's the head that I found in the lake

0:21:100:21:12

Listen, now. # You don't understand

0:21:120:21:15

# That's not the point of Christmas land... #

0:21:150:21:17

Now, pay attention.

0:21:170:21:19

# We pick up an oversize sock

0:21:190:21:22

# And hang it like this on the wall... #

0:21:220:21:24

Oh, yes, does it still have a foot?

0:21:240:21:26

Let me see! Let me look!

0:21:260:21:27

Is it rotted and covered with gook?

0:21:270:21:29

Um, let me explain.

0:21:290:21:31

# There's no foot inside but there's candy

0:21:310:21:34

# Or sometimes it's filled with small toys... #

0:21:340:21:36

Small toys? Do they bite? Do they snap?

0:21:360:21:37

Or explode in the sack?

0:21:370:21:39

Or perhaps they just spring out

0:21:390:21:40

And scare girls and boys

0:21:400:21:41

# What a splendid idea! This Christmas sounds fun

0:21:410:21:44

# I fully endorse it let's try it at once

0:21:440:21:47

# Everyone, please Now, not so fast

0:21:470:21:49

# There's something here that you don't quite grasp... #

0:21:490:21:52

I don't know. Get it?

0:21:520:21:54

Well...I may as well give them what they want.

0:21:540:21:57

# And the best, I must confess

0:21:570:21:59

# I have saved for the last

0:21:590:22:01

# For the ruler of this Christmas land

0:22:010:22:04

# Is a fearsome king

0:22:040:22:06

# With a deep, mighty voice

0:22:060:22:08

# 'Least that's what I've come to understand

0:22:080:22:11

# And I've also heard it told

0:22:110:22:13

# That he's something to behold

0:22:130:22:14

# Like a lobster, huge and red

0:22:140:22:18

# When he sets out to slay with his rain gear on

0:22:180:22:21

# Carting bulging sacks

0:22:210:22:23

# With his big great arms

0:22:230:22:25

# That is so I've heard it said

0:22:250:22:28

# And on a dark, cold night Under full moonlight

0:22:280:22:31

# He flies into a fog like a vulture in the sky

0:22:310:22:37

# And they call him

0:22:370:22:40

# Sandy Claws. #

0:22:400:22:45

WICKED CHUCKLE

0:22:450:22:48

# Well, at least they're excited

0:22:480:22:51

# But they don't understand

0:22:510:22:54

# That special kind of feeling in Christmas land. #

0:22:540:22:58

Oh, well.

0:22:580:23:01

ANIMALS HOWL

0:23:040:23:07

Hmm.

0:23:110:23:12

Hmm.

0:23:190:23:21

There's got to be a logical way

0:23:330:23:35

to explain this Christmas thing.

0:23:350:23:37

You've poisoned me for the last time,

0:23:480:23:51

you wretched girl.

0:23:510:23:53

DOORBELL RINGS

0:24:000:24:02

Oh, my head!

0:24:020:24:04

The door is open.

0:24:070:24:10

Hello?

0:24:110:24:12

Jack Skellington!

0:24:120:24:14

Up here, my boy.

0:24:140:24:16

Doctor! I need to borrow some equipment.

0:24:160:24:20

Is that so?

0:24:200:24:22

Whatever for?

0:24:220:24:23

I'm conducting a series of experiments.

0:24:230:24:26

How perfectly marvellous.

0:24:260:24:30

Curiosity killed the cat, you know.

0:24:300:24:33

I know.

0:24:330:24:34

Come on into the lab

0:24:340:24:35

and we'll get you all fixed up.

0:24:350:24:38

Hmm. Experiments?

0:24:380:24:40

JACK: Zero! I'm home.

0:24:430:24:46

Interesting reaction.

0:25:470:25:49

But what does it mean?

0:25:490:25:52

You can come out now if you promise to behave.

0:27:280:27:32

Sally?

0:27:320:27:34

Sally?

0:27:340:27:36

Gone again!

0:27:360:27:39

SMASH!

0:27:390:27:40

Hmm.

0:27:520:27:54

Oh!

0:28:400:28:42

COCK CROWS

0:29:020:29:04

ALL: # Something's up with Jack

0:29:040:29:06

# Something's up with Jack

0:29:060:29:08

# Don't know if we're ever going to get him back

0:29:100:29:13

# He's all alone up there

0:29:150:29:17

# Locked away inside

0:29:170:29:18

# Never says a word

0:29:200:29:22

# Hope he hasn't died

0:29:220:29:23

ALL: # Something's up with Jack Something's up with Jack

0:29:230:29:26

# Christmas time is buzzing in my skull

0:29:330:29:36

# Will it let me be? I cannot tell

0:29:360:29:39

# There's so many things I cannot grasp

0:29:390:29:43

# When I think I've got it and then at last

0:29:430:29:46

# Through my bony fingers it does slip

0:29:460:29:48

# Like a snowflake in a fiery grip

0:29:480:29:52

# Something here I'm not quite getting

0:29:520:29:53

# Though I try I keep forgetting

0:29:530:29:55

# Like a memory long since passed

0:29:550:29:58

# Here in an instant gone in a flash

0:29:580:30:00

# What does it mean? What does it mean?

0:30:000:30:03

# In these little bric-a-brac

0:30:030:30:05

# A secret's waiting to be cracked

0:30:050:30:07

# These dolls and toys confuse me so

0:30:070:30:09

# Confound it all, I love it, though

0:30:090:30:11

# Simple objects, nothing more

0:30:110:30:13

# But something's hidden through a door

0:30:130:30:15

# Though I do not have the key

0:30:150:30:18

# Something's here I cannot see

0:30:180:30:20

# What does it mean? What does it mean?

0:30:200:30:23

# What does it mean?

0:30:230:30:25

# I've read these Christmas books so many times

0:30:310:30:33

# I know the stories and I know the rhymes

0:30:330:30:36

# I know the Christmas carols all by heart

0:30:360:30:39

# My skull's so full it's tearing me apart

0:30:390:30:43

# As often as I've read them something's wrong

0:30:430:30:45

# It's so hard to put my bony finger on

0:30:450:30:48

# Or perhaps it's really not as deep as I've been led to think

0:30:480:30:52

# Am I trying much too hard?

0:30:520:30:55

# Of course! I've been too close to see!

0:30:550:30:57

# The answer's right in front of me

0:30:570:30:59

# Right in front of me!

0:30:590:31:01

# It's simple, really, very clear

0:31:010:31:02

# Like music drifting in the air

0:31:020:31:04

# Invisible but everywhere

0:31:040:31:07

# Just because I cannot see it

0:31:070:31:09

# Doesn't mean I can't believe it

0:31:090:31:11

# You know I think this Christmas thing

0:31:110:31:13

# Is not as tricky as it seems

0:31:130:31:15

# And why should they have all the fun?

0:31:150:31:17

# It should belong to anyone

0:31:170:31:18

# Not anyone, in fact, but me

0:31:180:31:20

# Why, I could make a Christmas tree

0:31:200:31:22

# And there's no reason I can find

0:31:220:31:24

# I couldn't handle Christmas time

0:31:240:31:26

# I bet I could improve it, too

0:31:260:31:27

# And that's exactly what I'll do. #

0:31:270:31:31

Hee-hee-hee-hee-hee!

0:31:310:31:33

Eureka!

0:31:330:31:35

This year,

0:31:350:31:37

Christmas will be...

0:31:370:31:38

ours!

0:31:380:31:40

ALL CHEER

0:31:400:31:42

MAYOR: Patience, everyone!

0:31:430:31:46

Jack has a special job for each of you.

0:31:460:31:49

Dr Finkelstein?

0:31:510:31:53

Your Christmas assignment is ready!

0:31:530:31:57

Dr Finkelstein!

0:31:590:32:01

To the front of the line.

0:32:010:32:04

COOING

0:32:050:32:08

What kind of noise is that for a baby to make?

0:32:080:32:11

Perhaps it can be improved?

0:32:110:32:12

BOTH: No problem.

0:32:120:32:13

I knew it!

0:32:130:32:15

Doctor...

0:32:150:32:16

Thank you for coming.

0:32:160:32:19

We need some of these.

0:32:190:32:20

Hmm...

0:32:200:32:22

Their construction should be exceedingly simple, I think.

0:32:220:32:27

How horrible our Christmas will be!

0:32:270:32:30

No...

0:32:300:32:31

How jolly!

0:32:310:32:33

Oh...

0:32:330:32:34

How jolly our Christmas will be.

0:32:340:32:37

Oh! hey!

0:32:370:32:39

What are you doing here?

0:32:390:32:41

Jack sent for us...

0:32:410:32:42

Specifically... By name.

0:32:420:32:44

Lock! Shock! Barrel.

0:32:440:32:47

Jack... Jack!

0:32:470:32:49

It's Boogie's boys!

0:32:490:32:51

Ah! Halloween's finest trick-or-treaters.

0:32:510:32:55

The job I have for you is top secret.

0:32:550:32:58

It requires craft, cunning, mischief...

0:32:580:33:01

And we thought you didn't like us, Jack.

0:33:010:33:04

THEY GIGGLE

0:33:040:33:06

Absolutely no-one is to know about it.

0:33:060:33:08

Not a soul. Now...

0:33:080:33:10

HE WHISPERS

0:33:100:33:12

Ow!

0:33:190:33:21

SPIDER SQUEAKS Hmm...

0:33:210:33:23

And one more thing.

0:33:230:33:24

Leave that no-account Oogie-Boogie out of this!

0:33:240:33:28

Whatever you say, Jack.

0:33:280:33:30

Of course, Jack.

0:33:300:33:31

Wouldn't dream of it, Jack.

0:33:310:33:33

THEY GIGGLE

0:33:330:33:34

ALL: # Kidnap Mr Sandy Claws?

0:33:510:33:54

# I want to do it Let's draw straws

0:33:550:33:57

# Jack said we should work together

0:33:580:34:00

# Three of a kind Birds of a feather Now and forever

0:34:000:34:04

# La-la-la-la-la-la la-la-la-la-la

0:34:040:34:06

# La-la-la-la-la-la la-la-la-la-la

0:34:060:34:09

# Kidnap the Sandy Claws lock him up real tight

0:34:090:34:13

# Throw away the key and then turn off all the lights

0:34:130:34:16

# First, we're going to set some bait

0:34:160:34:18

# Inside a nasty trap and wait

0:34:180:34:20

# When he comes a-sniffing

0:34:200:34:21

# We will snap the trap and close the bait

0:34:210:34:23

# Wait, I've got a better plan

0:34:230:34:25

# To catch this big red lobster man

0:34:250:34:26

# Let's pop him in a boiling pot

0:34:260:34:28

# And when he's done we'll butter him up!

0:34:280:34:30

# Kidnap the Sandy Claws Throw him in a box

0:34:300:34:33

# Bury him for 90 years Then see if he talks

0:34:330:34:36

# Then Mr Oogie-Boogie man

0:34:380:34:40

# Can take the whole thing over then

0:34:410:34:43

# He'll be so pleased I do declare

0:34:440:34:47

# That he will cook him rare! Whee! #

0:34:480:34:50

OOGIE-BOOGIE CACKLES That's right!

0:34:500:34:54

MANIACAL LAUGHTER

0:34:540:34:57

# I say that we take a cannon

0:34:570:34:58

# Aim at his door and then

0:34:580:35:00

# Knock three times and when he answers

0:35:000:35:02

# Sandy Claws will be no more

0:35:020:35:03

# You're so stupid think now

0:35:030:35:05

# If we blow him up to smithereens

0:35:050:35:07

# We may lose some pieces

0:35:070:35:08

# And Jack will beat us black and green!

0:35:080:35:10

# Kidnap the Sandy Claws

0:35:100:35:12

# Tie him in a bag

0:35:120:35:13

# Throw him in the ocean then see if he is sad

0:35:130:35:17

# Because Mr Oogie-Boogie is the meanest guy around

0:35:170:35:20

# If I were on his boogie list I'd get out of town

0:35:200:35:25

# He'll be so pleased by our success

0:35:270:35:29

# That he'll reward us, too I'll bet

0:35:290:35:33

# Perhaps he'll make his special brew

0:35:330:35:37

# Of snake and spider stew

0:35:370:35:38

# We're his little henchmen and we take our job with pride

0:35:380:35:42

# We do our best to please him and stay on his good side

0:35:420:35:45

# I wish my cohorts weren't so dumb

0:35:450:35:47

# I'm not the dumb one You're no fun... #

0:35:470:35:49

Shut up! Make me!

0:35:490:35:50

# I've got something, listen up

0:35:500:35:51

# This one is real good, you'll see

0:35:510:35:53

# We'll send a present to his door

0:35:530:35:54

# Upon there'll be a note to read

0:35:540:35:56

# Now, in the box we'll wait and hide

0:35:560:35:58

# Until his curiosity entices him to look inside

0:35:580:36:01

# And then we'll have him - one, two, three!

0:36:010:36:03

# Kidnap the Sandy Claws Beat him with a stick

0:36:030:36:06

# Lock him up for 90 years See what makes him tick

0:36:090:36:13

# Mr Oogie-Boogie is sure to get his kicks

0:36:130:36:16

# Kidnap the Sandy Claws See what we must see

Sally, I need your help more than anyone's.

0:37:050:37:09

You certainly do, Jack. I had the most terrible vision.

0:37:090:37:12

That's splendid. No! It was about your Christmas.

0:37:120:37:15

There was smoke and fire...

That's not my Christmas.

My Sandy Claws outfit. I want you to make it.

0:37:250:37:29

Jack, please listen to me. It's going to be a disaster.

0:37:290:37:32

How could it be? Just follow the pattern.

0:37:320:37:35

This part's red. The trim is white.

0:37:350:37:37

It's a mistake, Jack.

0:37:370:37:39

You're welcome, one and all!

0:55:130:55:17

Where'd you spot him? ..Fast as we can, ma'am.

0:55:170:55:20

Police. I know, I know - a skeleton. Keep calm.

0:55:200:55:22

Turn off all the lights. Make sure the doors are locked.

0:55:220:55:25

NEWSREADER: 'Reports are pouring in from all over the globe

0:55:250:55:28

'that an impostor is shamelessly impersonating Santa Claus,

0:55:280:55:32

'mocking and mangling this joyous holiday.'

Jack! Someone has to help Jack.

Where'd they take that Sandy Claws?

Searchlights!

0:55:590:56:01

They're celebrating!

0:56:090:56:11

They're thanking us for doing such a good job.

0:56:110:56:14

Whoa!

0:56:140:56:16

Careful down there.

0:56:160:56:18

You almost hit us.

0:56:180:56:19

It's OK, Zero.

0:56:190:56:21

Head higher!

0:56:210:56:23

Are you a gambling man, Sandy?

0:56:270:56:30

Let's play.

0:56:300:56:32

HE RATTLES DICE Hmm?

0:56:320:56:34

My, my...what have we here?

0:56:340:56:39

SHE WHISPERS: I'll get you out of here.

0:56:480:56:51

Ah...lovely.

0:56:510:56:54

Tickle, tickle, tickle.

0:56:540:56:56

Tickle, tickle, tickle.

What?! You try to make a dupe out of me?!

0:57:020:57:07

HE ROARS

0:57:070:57:12

Who's next on my list?

0:57:170:57:20

Ah...little Harry and Jordan.

0:57:200:57:23

Won't they be surprised?

0:57:230:57:25

They're trying to hit us!

0:57:350:57:38

Zero! ZERO BARKS

0:57:380:57:41

JACK: Merry Christmas to all

0:57:490:57:51

and to all a good niiiiggght!

0:57:510:57:56

HE HOWLS

0:58:070:58:11

I knew this Christmas thing was a bad idea.

0:58:140:58:18

I felt it in my gut.

0:58:180:58:21

Terrible news, folks -

0:58:210:58:25

the worst tragedy of our times.

0:58:250:58:28

Jack has been blown to smithereens.

0:58:280:58:33

Terrible, terrible news.

0:58:330:58:39

Attention.

0:58:400:58:42

Attention, citizens.

0:58:420:58:44

Terrible news.

0:58:440:58:45

There's still no sign of Santa Claus.

0:58:450:58:48

Although the impostor has been shot down

0:58:480:58:51

it looks like Christmas will have to be cancelled this year.

0:58:510:58:56

I repeat - the impostor has been shot down

0:58:560:59:00

but there's still no sign of the real Santa.

I'm afraid I've made a terrible mess of your holiday.

1:04:391:04:42

Bumpy sleigh ride, Jack?

1:04:421:04:45

The next time you get the urge to take over

1:04:451:04:47

someone else's holiday, I'd listen to her.

1:04:471:04:50

She's the only one who makes any sense around this insane asylum.

1:04:501:04:54

Skeletons, boogie men... I hope there's still time!

1:04:541:04:57

To fix Christmas? Of course there is.

1:04:571:05:00

I'm Santa Claus.

1:05:001:05:03

He'll fix things, Jack.

1:05:071:05:09

He knows what to do.

How did you get down here, Sally?

1:05:111:05:14

A magical stop-motion animated musical fantasy created by Tim Burton and set in a world where every holiday has its own special land. Jack Skellington, the Pumpkin King, tires of the same old routine in Hallowe'en Town and decides to gatecrash Christmas Town. He is instantly enraptured by the decorations, toys and warm spirit. However, not everyone feels the same about him.
