J is for...Jack Skellington

Jack Skellington is the protagonist in the Disney film Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas. Jack is the "Pumpkin King" of Halloween Town and lives in a fictional world based solely on the Halloween holiday. His usual appearance is a skeleton dressed in a black pin-striped suit and a bow tie resembling a bat, but there are some points in which he dresses as a scarecrow with a pumpkin for a head. His name is a pun on skeleton. He has a pet ghost dog named Zero, who has a small glowing nose that looks like a Jack-o'-lantern. His love interest is Sally, a rag doll created by Dr. Finklestein. Jack is voiced by Chris Sarandon, and his singing voice is provided by Danny Elfman. The original Jack was portrayed by Johnny Depp.
