User Reviews

Good animation with great gags
27 July 1999 | by (FL) – See all my reviews

As is the case with many cartoons, many of the jokes are not for children. I found the animated series highly entertaining. Silly and gross are the norm. Fast paced jokes keep coming. I liked the character of Beetlejuice in the cartoons better than in the movie. I did not particularly love the movie but, the cartoon is very funny. I love the way they draw Lyds. Enjoy.
