Beetlejuice (1988) Poster

(1988)

Alternate Versions

When Disney bought the rights to Beetlejuice to air on the Disney Channel, they cut out several scenes including: The scene of a second Sandworm head emerging from the mouth of another one. In the original version, when Adam and Barbara leave the model, Beetlejuice kicks over a model tree, screams "Wow! Nice F---ing model!" and then makes honking sounds while he yanks himself in an obscene way. In the Disney version he kicks over the tree, spits, and stares up at Adam and Barbara. Several scenes of Beetlejuice attacking the Deitz family as a snake were removed. The scene where the receptionist in the Afterlife Waiting room reveals she killed herself was removed A scene during the dance number where the Deitz's all moon each other was removed
The version currently available on Warner Home video has been expurgated: when the barber in front of Adam's shop recounts an incident with a customer who had "hair down to his goddamn shoulders" it is altered to "hair down to his damn shoulders" using poor dubbing. Also the instance when Betelgeuse yells out "Nice f*cking model!" and grabs his crotch is cut out. So after he kicks down the tree the next shot shows Adam putting it back up in the model. These cuts have been restored on the R1 20th Anniversary Edition from Warner Bros.
