Synopsis: Jack Skellington (voiced by Chris Sarandon) is the Pumpkin King of Halloween Town but feels there’s something lacking in his life. When he happens upon Christmas Town he decides to take over that holiday, leading to chaos.
Kitty Cameos: Black cats are a common motif in Halloween Town but only a couple of actual cats are seen. The first is during the opening musical number. A cat is seen running through town and jumps up on a garbage can, only to be thrown off when someone pops out from inside.
Later when Sally (Catherine O’Hara) is singing about her concern and love for Jack, a black cat is seen on the gate above her head.
The cat then comes down and approaches Sally.
She pets the cat, eventually pulling it onto her lap.
Final Mewsings: Cats love to be petted, even by detachable hands.
