First Appeared: The Nightmare Before Christmas (Henry Selick, 1993)
Founding Father: Tim Burton
Notable Residents: Jack Skellington, Oogie Boogie, Sally, the Mad Scientist
Though the Pumpkin King may be bored with Halloween Town at the start of the film, that doesn't make it in any way boring. Halloween Town is an homage to the behind-the-scenes production of everything that makes people afraid. Run by their charming and handsome leader, Jack Skellington, this city depicts Tim Burton working at full force. Mad scientists with removable brains, clowns with tear away faces, a boogie man made of bugs, and the idea of a town who is responsible for spreading fright make up so much of the charm of this widely-loved claymation film. Who wouldn't want to work in such a tight knit community of terrorizers? Let's face it, Halloween Town makes Christmas Town look like Thanksgiving Town.
