Oogie Boogie in the moon.
Cranking a cat's tail for a siren
The Oogie Boogie song is a direct reference to the Cab Calloway song Minnie The Moocher, and the situation in which Sandy Claws is during the song is similar to the Betty Boop movie. Danny Elfman, who wrote all the the songs for Nightmare, is a rabid Calloway fan.
The Betty Boop short is referenced in Oogie Boogie's song. Betty's question "What'chu gonna do now?" and the Old Man of the Mountain's response: "I'm gonna do the best I can!" are repeated by Santa and Oogie Boogie in "Nightmare."
The Christmas special was one of the inspirations for the film.

Two toys that Jack delivers reference "Batman Returns", the film Tim Burton had directing commitments towards at the time. One is an evil duck on wheels, which is the vehicle that Penguin drives.
