Voice Compare » Nightmare Before Christmas » Lock

Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Lock with sound clips and images.
Lock is the de facto leader of a trio of mischievous trick-or-treaters that consists of himself, Shock and Barrel. He dresses up in a devil costume, and bears a strong facial resemblance to his own mask.

Paul Reubens is absolutely perfect as Lock, he just sounds so sinister and makes him so violent that I can't help but love him in the role. He nailed the delivery on countless lines, especially in that song. Reminds me a lot of his Bat-Mite in retrospect.

Jess Harnell just sounds like a deeper and much less endearing version of Bob Bergen's Masaru. Really doesn't fit Lock at all. I was going to say that he improved a LOT in Oogie's Revenge, but after double checking it that was Paul Reubens reprising the role, so nevermind.

I think it goes without saying that this goes to Paul Reubens no contest, Jess Harnell was horribly miscast here, much like his Finklestein.

Paul Reubens. Jess Harnell's imitation is even weaker than his Finkelstein!

Paul really has a lot of naughtiness in his voice which really makes the character stand out.

Jess really sucks. Should have been Paul though he might have been in prison when they first made KH.

Paul Reubens All the way
I don't like Jess Harnell's voice he always imitates someone when he fills in for another actor

@MatthewC17 But Harnell did a nice job with Dr. Finklestein's Song

@MatthewC17 Isn't impersonating another actor the whole point of filling in for them?

Paul sounds like he's doing a new character while Harnell sounds like he's trying to imitatie Pee Wee instead of Lock.

You can't even tell that's Pee Wee doing his voice except for the last line while Harnell's sounds like a modified Wakko minus the accent.
