Role in the Movie Edit

Oogie Boogie is the only member of Halloween Town who is pure evil. He is mentioned various times in the movie, but not actually seen until Three Quarters through. After Lock, Shock and Barrel have kidnapped Santa Claus they take him to Oogie Boogie, and the rest of the movie features him torturing him. After Jack Skellington shows up, finally having a moment of sense, Oogie Boogie in surprise and shock battles Jack with his gambling themed battle devices. Jack however, manages to pull a thread on Oogie Boogie, and it is revealed he is but a bag of bugs. His bugs fall into his batch of stew.
