Lock, Shock and Barell are fictional characters who appeared for the first time in Henry Selick’s and Tim Burton’s 1993 film The Nightmare Before Christmas, there they act like Oogie Boogie’s henchmen. At the beginning they seem to like working for the film’s antagonist Oogie Boogie, but after he was defeated, they still play but they seem to be happier. So it’s suggested they work for Oogie in fear pretending they like him. However in the videogame The Nightmare Before Christmas: Oogie’s revenge they actually bring Oogie Boogie back to life.
