The Nightmare Before Christmas Cuckoo Clock

May 1, 2014


This is the $200 Nightmare Before Christmas themed cuckoo clock available from The Bradford Exchange. So don't go looking for it at Armani Exchange. It won't be there. $38 t-shirts? There will be a f***ing ton of those.

Jack Skellington and Sally stand in front of the Town Hall and Jack's Tower. At the flip of a switch, the windows of Jack's Tower, the ghosts and pumpkins illuminate with glowing light. Instead of a traditional cuckoo on the hour, this clock plays "This is Halloween" while Zero pops in and out of the doors atop the Town Hall. The clock is powered by a precision quartz movement and features an embellished clock face, complete with spider web design and slightly off-kilter numbers. The swinging brass-toned pendulum is decorated with the Halloween Town Spiral Hill. Decorative pinecone weights hang below, with Shock and Barrel clinging to them while Lock cheers them on from above.

My great aunt has a cuckoo clock collection. She must have over a hundred. And she keeps them all perfectly in-time so they all go off simultaneously in a cacophony of chimes and bells. I suspect that's why her cats ran away.

Keep going for a couple more shots.



Thanks to Perry, who didn't so much send me the tip as I stole it off his Facebook wall. I also saved a couple inspirational quotes from other people.

    Just got mine. Took a fucking month to get here and it doesn't fucking work. Sending it back soon as possible. Piece of crap.

    I have so many friends that would go crazy for this. They would love me forever if I got it for them. It makes me excited just thinking about it.

  • What asshole decided on the spelling of cuckoo. Everytime I see it I get annoyed.

    I like how you call him out for swearing, yet don't mention the profane language used in this article itself. Does it make you feel like a grown up calling people out on their use of language? Why do you care?
    It sure makes me feel like a big adult typing this, let me tell you.

    Damnit.... Now I need to buy this.
