Scariest Cartoon Characters #12: Jack Skellington

Top 20 Scariest Cartoon Characters Number 12 Jack Skellington

« Back

Jack Skellington, star of the Nightmare Before Christmas, is certainly scary, but let’s get this straight — Jack is not a villain. In fact, quite the opposite, he’s the good guy! Though made from clay, and can’t weigh more than 20 ounces, this skinny lil guy is so filled with love and hope and beauty, he just happens to come from Halloween Town where everything SEEMS scary. But just like you and I, all the guy wants to do is have a good time and be happy.

In reality, the bad guy from the Nightmare Before Christmas wasn’t Jack — it was Oogie Boogie! This prize could have easily gone to him, but we here at ToonBarn think that Jack’s character design is just so much better and creepier (even if Oogie is just downright meaner). Let’s face it, Jack IS the Pumpkin King. He is a walking, talking skeleton. It doesn’t get much scarier than that, so we say he deserves placement on the list, and we’re sticking to it! Check out some video footage of Jack
