Oogie Boogie is the main antagonist of Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas, voiced by Ken Page. He is a burlap sack filled with insects, two spiders and a snake for a tongue. It is likely he is the legendary Boogeyman, as suggested by the boogie in his name, and how he refers to himself as a "gamblin' boogeyman". The boogeyman was also known to cause sheer horror in the dreams of mortals, as hinted in "This Is Halloween" as the shadow on the moon is described as filling the dreams of mortals "to the brim with fright". If this is the case, then he is likely able to have the power to generate fear in humans. He doesn't think Halloween should be a fun holiday like everyone else does. He thinks it should be sinister and harmful, even going as far to actually harm humans, which all the other citizens are against and strictly forbid it. He commands three not-so-loyal minions Lock, Shock, and Barrel. The three live in a Treehouse, above Oogie's Lair. They feed him bugs, and the occasional Santa Claus through a metal shute that leads down below.
