WALT DISNEY STUDIO
Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)
original production animation story drawing
yellow and black pencil on 5.5" x 8" animation story sheet, image size: 5.5" x 8"
This original animation story drawing of Jack Skellington was created by a Disney artist in development of a scene in the stop-motion animated feature. This scene appears in the film's "This Is Halloween" opening musical sequence. Jack Skellington rides in on a wooden horse, takes a burning torch, swallows it, and bursts into flame as the chorus sings "Our man Jack is the King of the Pumpkin Patch / Everyone hail to the Pumpkin King now!" A label bearing the handwritten designation "4B" was applied to the sheet during production of the film to indicate the drawing's place in the sequence.
