Meet Jack-Jack

Jack as a "squiggly arm guy"

Earlier in the series, Jack had many traits that were removed as the series progressed.

  • Jack's arms were usually bent, which he refers to as "squiggly arms".
  • Sometimes Jack's body would be tiny and his head would be huge.
  • When Jack appeared, the song "This Is Halloween" from The Nightmare Before Christmas would play. This only happened in Meet Jack Skellington when Mario met him, and in Cute Mario Bros The Movie when he appeared after 4 years of absence (only in the timeline, not the series) to defeat Kermit the Frog.
    • In the remake of Meet Jack Skellington, the song was replaced by an instrumental version from the Kingdom Hearts series, with Jack himself singing the lyrics (albeit somewhat wrong).


  • Sometimes, when Jack has a plan, he will wrap his long arm around somebody and repeatedly say "are you listening" until the character(s) get fed up and yell at him.
  • Jack often teases Luigi for being somewhat bald, even though he is bald himself.
  • Jack has a box of Cheerios that he calls Jack Snacks.
  • Even though Jack likes Jack Snacks He doesn't like his Mother's Jack Snacks Recipe as it Inculdes Tuna and Feces(Poo) as in Mail Time Episode 3 He appeared shocked and throwed it away.
