Toy Duck or Zombie Duck is the toy duck seen in Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas.


The Nightmare Before Christmas[]

The Toy Duck was made during the ¨Making Christmas¨ sequence to be one of Jack Skellington's macabre Christmas presents. The duck was created by the Vampires of Halloween Town, singing with them as they finished painting him.

Jack Skellington gives him and a vampire teddy bear to a pair of children when he gives presents to the little kids in the real world. After Jack left, they came to life and chased the children all the way to their parents' room. Near the end of the movie, Santa Claus comes and replaces the toy duck with a toy boat. He does the same with the other toys that Jack delivered.
