Jack Skellington, a.k.a. the Pumpkin King, persuades the creepy inhabitants of Halloweentown to kidnap Santa and take over Christmas. Tim Burton and 120 animators used the laborious stop-motion process to create this two year project: one minute of film took a week to shoot. An amazing production, with great score by Danny Elfman. A word of caution: watch out for the Oogie Boogie man. Recommended for ages 6+.
