Sally is the deuteragonist of Tim Burton's stop-motion film The Nightmare Before Christmas. She is a ragdoll created by Dr. Finklestein, made of various pieces stitched together, with dead leaves used as stuffing. It is unlikely that she feels any physical pain, as demonstrated in the movie when she leaps from her upstairs bedchamber in Finklestein's Lab. After some of her limbs become detached upon impact, she sews them back on and limps for only a short while. As the most cherished creation of the doctor, she is always under lock and key. Thus, when she wants to go out, she poisons the doctor with deadly nightshade (covered up with worm's wart and frog's breath) and sneaks out.
Sally has a crush on Jack Skellington, but is unsuccesful in showing her affections to Jack. However, by the end of the movie, she manages to let him know about her true feelings, and they later kiss on Spiral Hill.
