Spook spotlight: Oogie Boogie

If there was one character that definitely bugged Jack Skellington and Santa Claus in "The Nightmare Before Christmas," it was Oogie Boogie, the walking knapsack with the creepy grin who played with loaded dice and glowed a neon green. Here's what else we've learned about this denizen of the dark:
  • Pet peeves: Santa Claus, the sack race, Orkin refusing to issue him a refund
  • Often mistaken for: Spongebob’s friend Patrick, the Michelin Man’s evil twin brother, the Pillsbury Doughboy on acid
  • Secret shames: Uses loaded dice, has a burlap fetish, gets high off glow-in-the-dark paint fumes
