Ok, let’s talk about this guy for a minute. He’s one of the greatest Disney villains ever, yet he only got around 10 minutes of screen time. So why is he such a great villian?
He’s honestly scary. He is a truly scary villian. Oogie Boogie is a sack filled with bugs, two spiders, and a snake. But that’s not enough, though. He’s a serial killer, who literally gambles lives away. He tried to do this with Santa and Sally in the movie.
His song is super catchy, but there is a whole verse that was deleted from the movie because it was too disturbing. It went like this:
"And if I’m felling antzy
And I’ve nothing much to do,
I might just cook a special batch,
Of snake and spider stew.
And don’t you know the one thing,
That would make it work so nice?
A rolley-polley Santa Clause,
To add a little spice!”
He was going to fucking EAT Santa! That’s fucking dark.
Things like this make for a real scary villain. That’s why, even though Oogie only had ten minutes of screen time, he’s still such a memorable antagonist.
That’s my take on it.
