From where I've been searching, people have a lot of theories of where Lock, Shock, and Barrel originated.

What about you? What is your theory?

My theory is that they originated in the human world, somewhere in Europe. The way they got to Halloweentown was by burning in a fire. You know how they avoided Jack's performance as the Pumpkin King in the beginning of the movie? They're terrified of fire because that's how they died. That's my theory.

My theory is they're just generally there. I mean, no-one ages there, and jack complains that it's the same year after year, therefore they've probably always just been there in halloween town, as have everyone else in Halloween Town. They don't quite look human... they have the wrong colour skin (and in lock's case, eyes) so i don't think they are from the real world. They're just eternal trick or treaters in halloween town.

well they speak like siblings do alot, ie. finishing each others sentences or talking in unison, and they fight amongst themselves alot, like siblings, and picking on the little one is common of siblings, so... yeah, they might be.

Yes when I think of them I think of them as siblings, thats why when I read storys where they are in love with each other or something it kinda disturbs me lol.

I personally think they ARE siblings, but that's not my theory...

Mine is that, when they were about...oooh, let's say 6 or so, they just happened to be playing out in a park. Y'know, sticking dirt in other kids hair and seeing how many worms they could eat before they threw up. Even before they were Lock, Shock, and Barrel they were a bit bully-ish and kinda icky...

But anyway, they ran into the woods, well...Lock did anyway, (he had stolen Barrel's Wolverine action figure) and Barrel was chasing after him, with Shock on the rear. They found one of the portals that led them to Halloween Town, being so curious, went into it and got stuck.

Simple. I mean...if you think about it, there could be portals to Halloween Town EVERYWHERE. For example...

When Jack gets shot out of the sky in the movie and lands in the Human Graveyard, how is it that is just so happens that he landed in the exact graveyard that if you run through the opening at the bottom of the angel, you'll reach Halloween Town? That's gotta be more than a chance sort of thing...What are the chances of him just landing in the exact graveyard with the portal?

Nah, I think there's lots of 'em and the three trick-or-treaters just stumbled upon one...Oogie probably bribed 'em with candy or something...

I kinda agree with the idea Tom Bone created in his fanfic about their origins. Like they were orphans in the human world and Oogie took them to the Halloween world coz they didn't seem to fit anywhere. As time passed, their appearances changed so they looked more like Halloweeners. Environment influences 50% of your appearance so I think it's plausible.

Personally I half agree with the idea they're siblings. I can see the connection between Shock and Barrel, like they're half siblings. But comparing Lock with them... I don't quite see it.

However I doubt no one will know the truth unless they talk one on one with Tim Burton.

Well... in various cultures, the bogeyman, ie Oogie Boogie, is a monster who kidnaps naughty children in a sack and takes them away. Maybe that's what Lock, Shock and Barrel are. Naughty children abducted by Oogie. (Note: The Bogeyman is supposed to kidnap children in a large sack. Oogie Boogie is a large burlap sack, and Lock, Shock and Barrel kidnap Sandy in a large sack.)

I think they COULD be siblings, but it's iffy. I mean, my siblings and I don't finish each other's sentences, we would never live TOGETHER, and we would never agree on anything. So, in that respect, I don't believe they're siblings.

I DO however think that they're extremely close friends. Me and my group of friends act surprisingly a lot like them...we fight a lot (sometimes physical) we finish each other's sentences, we can usually agree on SOMETHING eventually, and we like each other's company.

And, as for my theory about how they got to Halloween Town, I have a couple. Either they came upon a portal by accident (i.e. one opens up every few years, and they just happened to fall into it), they died and Halloween Town's their afterlife, they were stolen by Oogie, OR they were born in Halloween Town, their parents died, and Oogie adopted them.

If you are so much like them, maybe dress like Lock, Shock and Barrel for Halloween LOL
