Jack Skellington is the Pumpkin King of Halloweentown in Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas, a film distributed by Disney. Having tired of the frights of Halloween, Jack yearns for something more, and seemingly finds it when he stumbles upon Christmastown. Eager to try out the new holiday, Jack sets his citizens to work on their own Christmas preparations, only for things to go horribly wrong. Fortunately, Jack was able to make amends for his mischief, saving Santa Claus from the villainous Oogie Boogie and enabling him to complete his holiday run. He also came to recognize the love of his friend Sally.
