Sally
Performer: Catherine O'Hara
Appears in:
The Nightmare Before Christmas

Sally is the deuteragonist of Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas. She is a ragdoll created by Dr. Finkelstein. She is made of various pieces stitched together, with dead leaves used as stuffing it is unlikely that she feels any physical pain. This is demonstrated in the movie when she leaps from her upstairs bedchamber in Finklestein's Lab. After some of her limbs become detached upon impact, she sews them back on and limps for only a short while. As the most cherished creation of the doctor, she is always under lock and key. Thus, when she wants to go out, she poisons the doctor with deadly nightshade (covered up with worm's wart and frog's breath) and sneaks out.

Sally has a crush on Jack Skellington, but is unsuccessful in showing her affections to Jack. However, by the end of the movie, she manages to let him know how much she loves him and he reveals that he loves her in return. They later kiss on Spiral Hill.

TriviaEdit

  • Sally's Corpse Bride counterparts are Emily the Corpse Bride and Victoria Everglot.
  • Sally makes an appearance in "Grim Tales From Down Below."
  • Sally, and her creator, Dr. Finklestein, seem to be based off the tale "Frankenstein", as Dr. Finklestein's name is written in a similar way to Frankenstein, while Sally's story counterpart would be Dr. Frankenstein's creation.
  • Sally is voiced by Catherine O'Hara, who also sung "Sally's Song," the character's solo song in the movie. The song has since been covered by Amy Lee, the singer of Evanescene band.
