Barrel

The Nightmare Before Christmas | Character

Lock, Shock and Barrel (collectively known as Boogie's Boys) are the secondary antagonists of Tim Burton's 1993 stop-motion Disney film, The Nightmare Before Christmas. They are a mischievous trio of trick-or-treaters from Halloween Town that served as Oogie Boogie's henchmen and were responsible for kidnapping Santa Claus.

Barrel is considered the stupidest of the three troublemakers, despite his protests to the contrary. He is the butt of many jokes made by his cohorts but usually gets even through his own tricks at which he always gets away with. Barrel wears a skeleton costume and has deformed feet, but otherwise resembles a small human boy, albeit one with white skin, sunken eyes, and perfectly combed green hair. His face is round and has a perpetual grin, except when he is angry. Barrel is usually the pilot of the walking bathtub the trio use as transport. He also likes to eat lollipops.  Barrel was voiced by songwriter Danny Elfman in the original film. Jeff Bennett played the part for the Kingdom Hearts series, while Dee Bradley Baker came in for Oogie's Revenge.
