Trivia

This cartoon was a huge success when it first aired on ABC and later became one of the first cartoons to air on the Fox Channel's Fox Kids lineup. This led to Beetlejuice being seen Monday through Friday on FOX while still remaining on ABC's Saturday morning schedule, making it one of the few shows in American TV history to be aired concurrently on two different broadcast networks.

It's great...if you're into it.
25 November 2002 | by (Fernandina, Florida) – See all my reviews

This cartoon was funny, as long as you were a fan. Beetlejuice, the character, of course, had to have some personality traits changed in order of the FCC to allow him. Such as, Beetlejuice was the good guy in the cartoon. Him and Lydia were friends. The couple, Adam and Barbara from the movie were not in this, but still, it held up...well, until they cancelled the show. I guess it wasn't show time after all...
