Oogie Boogie Background Singer is another evil OC I made for "Animaniacs". He was made on November 2011.


Oogie made his debut in the episode, "A Christmas Plotz". Oogie started off as a suit created and worn by Background Singer to frighten Mr. Plotz. In said episode, Background Singer couldn't sleep because he was afraid of his own evil costume. Babes suggested Background Singer should take a sleeping pill, which he does, and in Mr. Plotz's nightmare, Background Singer shows up to face his fear.

Physical Appearance[]

Like the real Oogie Boogie from "The Nightmare Before Christmas", the suit is green and is controlled by bugs and snakes. But unlike the "Nightmare Before Christmas" Oogie Boogie, Oogie Boogie Background Singer wears a crown with bells, and Santa suit with a belt that has a "B" in the middle. He also has mitts for hands. Background Singer added dark magic to the suit before the bugs took control of it. Its magic powers include growing fists when Oogie does a slamming shockwave attack, and he can summon black vultures to kill his victims. He even has folded wings for flying (with the dark magic allowing him full flight).


While wearing the suit allows you to express your rage and vengeance (making you lose yourself), Oogie has two weaknesses since it is made of cloth.

  1. The suit isn't resistant to tears and punctures. So avoid sharp objects and bullets.
  2. The suit is easily flammable, so avoid fires at all costs.

The suit also doesn't work in bright lights, not to say it'll harm you, but it will weaken the suit and stun the wearer until it pukes the wearer out.

Oogie Boogie Background Singer's Tropes (So far)[]

Anti-Hero - At times. In "Hooray for North Hollywood (Part 2)", Background Singer wears it during the final battle to try to defeat the now Overlord Waldo (in his snake form). This is a rare example of Oogie being used for good.

Bedsheet Ghost

Big Bad - In "A Christmas Plotz" and later, "The Great Edgar Hunt".

Brooding Boy, Gentle Girl - Oogie is terrorizing, but his wife, The Ghost of Christmas Present (Dot) isn't as terrorizing, but still respects Oogie's wishes.

Bullying a Dragon

Clingy Costume - For Background Singer

Creepy Jazz Music - As part of his theme song

"Do It Yourself" Theme Tune - Sings the "Oogie Boogie theme song" before Dot and Oogie sing her song to Mr. Plotz.

Dying Vocal Change - When bugs come out of him after being shredded apart.

Evil Counterpart - For Background Singer.

Evil Is Hammy

Evil laugh

Family-Unfriendly Death - Every time he appears this is always his cruel fate. The only exception being "Scare Happy Slappy".

Flying Brick

Hypocritical Humor

Kill It with Fire - Oogie's other weakness.

Lack of Empathy - He shows no love for Mr. Plotz or even Wizard Waldo.

Laughably Evil

Living Shadow - One of his unique powers is to make his shadow move. He only shows this off in "Scare Happy Slappy". However, in "The Great Edgar Hunt", his shadow is only mentioned during his singing.

Mighty Roar - His frightening roar sounds are similar to dinosaurs or lions.

Nightmare Fuel Station Attendant

Scare 'em Straight - Scares Mr. Plotz easily

Torture Technician

Villain Has a Point

Villain Song - His theme song

Weaksauce Weakness

Would Harm a Senior - Definitely to Mr. Plotz

  • After listening to the "Oogie Boogie Song" from "The Nightmare Before Christmas", I thought it would be fun to use Background Singer as an evil scarecrow kind of villain to frighten Mr. Plotz into being good.
