    Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas Storyboard Drawings (Walt Disney/Touchstone, 1993). "This is Halloween, this is Halloween, pumpkins scream in the middle of the night!" Tim Burton's Nightmare Before Christmas began as a poem while working at Walt Disney Studios in 1982 and was released as a stop-motion animated musical masterpiece on 10/13/93. This is a rare series of three original graphite and ink studio storyboards from the film. Two are from the opening "This is Halloween" song sequence where shadows are cast on the gravestones in the town's cemetery. The third is of Zero with the shadow of Jack and a terrified woman at a window. Art is attributed to storyboard artist Jorgen Klubien. Each one is on an 5.5" x 8" sheet of paper with pinholes in the corners. Artwork from this film is considered very rare. All show minor handling wear; otherwise, condition is Very Good.
