Citizens of Halloweentown

Jack Skellington

File:JackSkellington 5486.png
  • Anti-Hero
  • Anti-Villain
  • Authority Equals Asskicking
  • Badass Bookworm: He attempts to master the magic of Christmas through study and scientific research, and while his methods fail entirely, the logic he employs suggests a strange sort of genius at work.
  • Bad Santa: Though, in his case, it's less due to maliciousness than just not being very good at Santa's job.
  • Beneath the Mask: All of the Citizens of Halloween Town (except Sally) believe Jack to be bold, loud, and happy. Too bad they have no idea that underneath that bony exterior was a guy that was practically going through depression before he discovered Christmas Town.
  • The Big Guy
  • Blessed with Suck
  • Bow Ties Are Cool: Jack wears a bowtie when he's wearing his tux, although some people mistake it for a collar. It's still pretty cool, though.
  • Camp Straight
  • Dark Is Not Evil: He may be the Pumpkin King and love scaring, but he's a pretty nice guy.
  • Deadpan Snarker
  • Dem Bones
  • Evil Laugh: He has one, and it's his regular laugh.
  • Expressive Skull
  • Forgets to Eat: Implied by the scene where Sally sends a basket of food up to him.
  • Hot Bone Marrowed
  • I Have Many Names: Jack Skellington, the Pumpkin King, the King of Halloween, Bone Daddy, Skeleton Jack, Mr. Unlucky...
  • Idiot Hero: As detailed on the main page, he's not an Idiot Hero because of an inherent lack of intelligence; he's an Idiot Hero because he's never encountered non-Halloween stuff before and he's too excited to listen to common sense.
  • The Kindnapper: Jack Skellington has part of his being a Nightmare Fuel Station Attendant. His way of indulging himself in his new passion for Christmas not only involves planning to run the show himself, but kidnapping the one who already does to enable his doing so. And he sees it as a favor for Santa, too! Despite Jack's unquestionable status as The Hero, though, his kindnapping is clearly shown as not being a good thing, especially because of what it leads to...

 Santa: (bursts out of the bag) Let me out! (the Halloween Town citizens gasp in awe)

Jack Skellington: Sandy Claws - in person. What a pleasure to meet you. (prepares to shake but then looks down when their HANDS touch)

Jack Skellington: Wh - ! Why, you have hands! You don't have claws at all!

Santa: (dazed) Where am I?

Jack Skellington: Surprised, are you? You don't have to worry about another Christmas this year.

Santa: Wh-what?

Jack Skellington: Consider this a vacation, Sandy. A reward. It's your turn to take it easy.

Santa: B-But there must be some mistake!

Jack Skellington: See that he's comfortable... (the minions start to close up the bag, but then stop) Just a second, fellas! Of course! That's what I'm missing! (takes Santa's hat)

Santa: B-But...

Jack Skellington: (as he's putting on the hat) Thanks.

Santa: Hang on - you just can't - (has the bag thrown over him again) - Hold on! Where are we going now?
