Jack Skellington, the pumpkin king of Halloween Town, is bored with doing the same thing every year for Halloween. One day he stumbles into Christmas Town, and is so taken with the idea of Christmas that he tries to get the resident bats, ghouls, and goblins of Halloween town to help him put on Christmas instead of Halloween -- but alas, they can't get it quite right.

Jon Davis, lead singer of the metal band Korn did a cover song in his own metal stylings of "Kidnap the Sandy Claws". He did it live via webcam at his own home studio so that the fans could watch it as he produced it. The version is wonderfully heavy and really fits the the theme overall. See more »

Textbook example proving the old adage, "The grass is always greener in someone else's yard."
This film, while far from Burton's masterpiece, is a delightful musical that in the end shows that, sometimes, we have things far better than we think we do and the other side of the fence sometimes looks better just because it's different, but that doesn't make necessarily wise to pursue someone else's dream because we mistakenly think we may like it more. Tim Burton's fingerprints are all over this film. Excellent casting of vocal talent, the score is great and the animation is marvelous. A very good film and worth watching more than once. Recommended.
