Oogie Boogie

Oogie Boogie is the evil villain from the 1993 film 'The Nightmare Before Christmas.' He can also be seen in video games such as The Nightmare Before Christmas: Oogie's Revenge, The Kingdom Hearts series, The Nightmare Before Christmas: The Pumpkin King, and Meteos: Disney Magic. He can also be found in various types of merchandise, such as clothing, games, books (coloring and regular), and other accessories.

He hails from under Lock, Shock, and Barrel's playroom in a extremely terrifying dungeon themed to a funhouse. He has many different allies including all of the Disney villains, the Heartless, and Lock, Shock, and Barrel. His enemies include Jack Skellington, Sally, and the rest of Jack's followers in Halloween Town, Santa Claus, and his Kingdom Hearts counterparts.

Oogie is a very tall and overweight monster, he uses a burlap bag to cover up his true hideous form which includes thousands of bugs and other insects. He has a truly evil personality which consists of him being evil, angry, vicious, and abusive. He also loves to gamble: his dice decide how he will torture his victims. Oogie used to be ruler of 'Bug Town,' but was forced out. He soon made Halloween Town his new home.

He is voiced by Ken Page, who also voiced many Halloween related shows at Disneyland and Walt Disney World.

Oogie can be found at Disneyland, Walt Disney World, and other Disney parks around the world during Halloween time. His biggest appearance can be seen in the Haunted Mansion Holiday at Disneyland and Tokyo Disneyland, which has a completely different storyline then the normal Haunted Mansion. His voice can also be heard in HalloWishes.
