Sleepy Hollow Easter Egg - Jack in the Field

Go see Sleepy Hollow. During the part when the magistrate is leaving town and Ichabod stops him on the road, watch out for a scarecrow. Look at his face, it's Jack Skellington from A Nightmare Before Christmas; a movie written by Tim Burton.

I think that the scarecrow is Jack as the Pumpkin King. At the beginning of The Nightmare before Christmas Jack is pulled in on a straw horse and is covered in a straw and has a pumpkin for a head. The face of the pumpkin and several of the Jack-O-lanterns is also the one that is the door to Holloween town.

Yes, it's Jack. It's hard to see, but if you look closely you'll surely find his eyes, his theet and the shape of his face. It's of course an eegg!!!

AAAH!!! I thought it was a well-known fact that Tim Burton hides Jack Skellingtons in *ALL* his movies. At least every movie since Nightmare, starting with Ed Wood. Interestingly enough, a very Jack-like figure can be seen in Beetlejuice - when Betelgeuse has that weird merry-go-round hat type thing, check out the top. This is unquestionably a Jack Skellington. It makes sense though, seeing as how The Nightmare Before Christmas had long been a project of Burton's. Commenting on the original post, however - - Burton didn't write Nightmare. He produced it (he couldn't direct it due to prior commitments to Batman Returns) and did the story, but writing credits go to Caroline Thompson. It's highly unlikely that Burton would model a scarecrow off of a character from some obscure little video game instead of a character he created for a previous movie. Logic, people!!!!!

Tim Burton is known to use things from other movies in different movies. I've seen lots of his movies.

Actually, Tim Burton did write the story. It was originally a book. Not only did he write it, he also illustrated it. He helped produce the movie, also. And don't think that every skeleton you see is Jack Skellington. Even though we all wish it was. :)

Actuall it isn't Jack Skellington. In TNB4Xmas, Jack wore straw covering, his pinstripe suit, the Santa claus outfit, and a nightgown. He didn't wear the dark shirt/cape in Sleepy Hollow. Also, The pumpkin head on the scarecrow is not the same the Jack Wore. Jack had 6 upper teeth, while Sleepy Hollow has 8. Nor is the Jack-o-Lantern Either of these, as the eyes are round, not triangular and the nose is point-up triangle. It is very close, and indicative of Burton's style, just not Jack Skellington.

My friend said it looks more like Ichibod Clay (can't spell it) off the game clay fighters 631/3

Justin is correct. That scarecrow is, in fact, Ickybod Clay from Clayfighter and Clayfighter 63 1/3. I noticed that the first time I saw Sleepy Hollow, and that automatically made it a good movie in my book.
