well i think they were murdered on halloween by jack...on accident


XD "Accident"

I think that they are so... well, torturous and evil just because they find it fun. If torturing people wasn't fun for them, then they wouldn't do it.

And when they call each other stupid, and cohorts instead of friends or siblings, maybe it's because Oogie was desperate to gather some henchmen and just clumped the evilest children he could find together. Like when the teacher has assigned seats in class, and you sit next to someone you don't know, and sometimes you end up their friend, sometimes you end of their enemy, and sometimes you end up quite annoyed (OR ALL THREE)

As for where everyone came from (Not just Lock, Shock, and Barrel, everyone in town) I'm not sure... but ask yourself, where did Sandy Claws come from?

I always thought that they died trick or treating... Or hmm

Maybe they had some disease that killed them...

The world may never know...

You know, I've never thought about this before. I always just assumed they were always there. Now, though, I can see all sorts of ways for them to get to Halloween Town. Exploration, accident, bogeyman-nabbery... The world may never know for certain.

Well everybody's theories do sound interesting. As for me...either they could have been from the human world and ended up in Halloween Town due to making a deal with Oogie or they could have been members of Halloween Town originally.

Yep, that is what they are for, a way for fans to explore how they felt that something came to be. Always a pleasure to read too.

Well here's my opinion...First of all I don't think they're siblings...DON'T KILL ME PLEASE!
All three were killed on Halloween.
Shock was accused of witchcraft and hanged.
Lock died in a fire.
And Barrel was beaten to death.
Gee, am I a morbid person or what?!

I never really thought of them as dead.

I don't believe they're siblings. I know some siblings might look different from each other, but jeez, these guys don't resemble each other at all through my vision.

I thought their parents got involved in some sort of accident and kicked the bucket. Like say... they lost a card game and paid with something other than cash? *hint hint*

In my mind they were bullied as younger children, and they sort of faded away from the rest of the Halloweentown society, becoming reclused and kind of nasty-of-attitude. They ran off to escape the torment, but quickly became lost, hungry, and desperate. Oogie might've seen a chance to take advantage of three kids who had nobody to turn to, and he bribed them using candy or something some gullible kids might want.

Maybe they played one too many pranks on the Mayor and he sent them away. That would explain his disdain towards the three when they appeared in the town hall.

Umm,Where I come from they say that the boogieman sometimes takes children that are naughty with him and keeps them as servants,so I always thought that Oogie Boogie took them

I believe, like all the other characters in Halloween Town, that they were born there. Well, maybe not born, but have always just been there. I don't think that they died and came there, because that would be saying that Halloween Town is some sort of after life, which it is not, its just the birthplace of Halloween. I think that no one ages in Halloween Town, except for maybe a few of the creatures, but I honestly can't imagine L, S and B aging. Because, if you look at them, they're supernatural, like, monsters, so like Jack or anyone there, they have always been in Halloween town. Its just like humans, we just exsist here. We don't exsist anywhere else before we come to earth we're just here. And, like us, there is no explination how or why we're here, we just are, just like them.

Thats my theory.

And, can I add another opinion, maybe Tim doesn't even have an explanation to how they came to be. Maybe he just left it up to us to use our imagination and discover it ourselves, in our own special way.

Heres my theory;
They lived during the witch hunt era of the human world, but were always causing trouble, the three of them, and they were burned alive.

I like to combine The Corpse's Bride and TNBC together, so they fled from the underworld and hid in Halloween Town.

Its not really a good theory to be honest.
