YuleTube: _The Nightmare Before Christmas_

I saw _Nightmare Before Christmas_ when it first came out, loved it, bought the VHS, bought the Jack figurine, and figured it would remain a cult classic.

But in the last five years it's exploded and there's toys and clothes and books and lunchbags and you name it. Now it seems like it's more about the marketing than about the movie itself. No surprise there. But don't forget the movie which is an astounding feat of stop-motion animation with a unique style. Here's three selections comprising a Sunday triple-header.

"What's This?" ("There's children throwing snowballs, instead of throwing heads")

The Town Meeting ("A box?" / "Is it filled with a pox?")

"Making Christmas" (love those skeletal reindeer)
