Jack Skellington appears in this video, and he is the only character from The Nightmare Before Christmas to appear in this video, suit played and voiced by LW Leon. 

Nods to The Nightmare Before ChristmasEdit

  • There is a werewolf character in The Nightmare Before Christmas who says "Aren't You Scared?!" in the song, and in the LW Leon version, there are not one but two werewolves.
  • The Television Demon makes a cameo as The Clown With The Tearaway Face.
  • Jack Skellington himself appears in the video. In a singing role too.

Version 2Edit

Another version which features the voices of LW Leon, The Television Demon, and Jacob Bon Grim was released in October of the same year.

TriviaEdit

  • The character who jumps out of the garbage can was designed after the screamer from the 2001 flash screamer prank titled "What's Wrong?" or more commonly " What's Wrong with this picture?". 

LyricsEdit

La la la la la la la la la la

Boys and girls of every age

Wouldn't you like to see something strange?

Come with us and you will see

This, our town of Halloween

This is Halloween, this is Halloween

Pumpkins scream in the dead of night

This is Halloween, everybody make a scene

Trick or treat till the neighbors gonna die of fright

It's our town, everybody scream

In this town of Halloween

I am the one hiding under your bed

Teeth ground sharp and eyes glowing red

I am the one hiding under your stairs

Fingers like snakes and spiders in my hair

This is Halloween, this is Halloween

Halloween! Halloween! Halloween! Halloween!

In this town we call home

Everyone hail to the pumpkin song

In this town, don't we love it now?

Everybody's waiting for the next surprise

'Round that corner, man hiding in the trash can

Something's waiting no to pounce, and how you'll

Scream! This is Halloween

Red 'n' black, and slimy green

Aren't you scared?

Well, that's just fine

Say it once, say it twice

Take a chance and roll the dice

Ride with the moon in the dead of night

Everybody scream, everybody scream

In our town of Halloween!

I am the clown with the tear-away face

Here in a flash and gone without a trace

I am the "who" when you call, "Who's there?"

I am the wind blowing through your hair

I am the shadow on the moon at night

Filling your dreams to the brim with fright

This is Halloween, this is Halloween

Halloween! Halloween! Halloween! Halloween!

Halloween! Halloween!

Tender lumplings everywhere

Life's no fun without a good scare

That's our job, but we're not mean

In our town of Halloween

In this town

Don't we love it now?

Everybody's waiting for the next surprise

Skeleton Jack might catch you in the back

And scream like a banshee

Make you jump out of your skin

This is Halloween, everybody scream

Won't ya please make way for a very special guy

Our man Jack is King of the Pumpkin patch

Everyone hail to the Pumpkin King, now!

This is Halloween, this is Halloween

Halloween! Halloween! Halloween! Halloween!

In this town we call home

Everyone hail to the pumpkin song

La la la la la la la la la la (Halloween! Halloween!)


La la la la la la la la la la (Halloween! Halloween!)
