The Nightmare Before Christmas

Oogie Boogie first appears when the other monsters in Halloween Town are celebrating halloween, and his shadow appears in the moon. He is not seen again for most of the movie, but is mentioned when his henchmen,Lock Shock and Barrel, are sent out to capture Sandy Claus, and Jack Skellington the Pumpkin King tells them to leave Oogie Boogie out of the kidnpping. When they do kidnap Santa, they disobey him and bring Santa to Oogie's lair. Oogie appears as light flashes over him, making him appear bright green. He taunts Santa, calling him ancient and ugly. He also tortures him, and as the light above the two disappears, he tells Santa he is going nowhere and laughs.

Sally finds out where Santa is and sneaks into Oogie's underground lair, and detaches her leg to distract Oogie. He finds her leg and Sally tries to rescue Santa. However, Oogie finds out the leg is disembodied and realizes he has been tricked, and captures Santa and Sally. He tries to drop the two into his spider stew, but as they slide in, Jack rescues them and confronts Oogie. The Boogie Man puts Jack up against his robot death machines, but Jack uses his thin body to get past them and jump in front of Oogie. Oogie jumps on top of a machine to escape, but Jack grabs a loose thread and rips his burlap skin off, revealing the colony of bugs inside of him. Most of the bugs fall into the spider stew as Sally and Jack's ghost dog Zero look on in shock, while Jack stares coldy at the bugs dropping into the stew. One bug, believed to be the brain, is stepped on by Santa as it tries to run away.
