Hi all,
I'm writing an essay on AV translation. I choose to analyze "The nightmare before Christmas".

Can anyone suggest a better translation INTO ITALIAN for the three little monsters called Lock, Shock and Barrel?

In the italian version they are called Vado, Vedo e Prendo, probably referring to Ceasar's Veni Vedi Vici statement. Personally, I don't like this choice, but I can't even think of other ways of translating the names and mantain the idiomatic idea behind them (the english "lock, stock and barrel").

thanks a lot!

grazie mille!
anche io avevo pensato a Tizio Caio e Sempronio, ma non a modificare i nomi per renderli, appunto, più malvagi... geniale!
