Kenner, the company behind the Beetlejuice movie action figures, had begun developing figures for the animated series, but the project did not come to fruition (one prototype figure head of Jacques LaLean for that ill-fated collection has been showcased online). See more »

Alternate Versions

There are three different opening intros for this cartoon. The first one aired on ABC with alternate animation, for example, Beetlejuice is producing strips on his clothes. The second one is used on FOX, Kids WB, and in syndication, which is the current one they used in the United States, it features newer animation, for example, Beetlejuice rises from the grave and as a corpse. The third one is used when FOX re-ran Beetlejuice, this one re-edits clips from the second introduction and clips from various episodes. See more »

I love this show it show be on DVD.
25 April 2004 | by shevdiam5See all my reviews

I love Beetlejuice it is so funny I wish they bring it back just the repeats. It was on cartoon network then they stop showing it. My favorites are when BJ made this cologne.That changes people to a new person. It made BJ from a nasty ghost to a clean ghost. It changed Lydia from girl to bad girl that drove the neitherworld crazy. Another one was when she had a halloween party to scare a snobby girl at her school named Claire. BJ decorated the party from stuff from his world. Plus he bought a product called Party People in a can. That turned to giant monsters on a full moon. The show is just plain funny I hope they put it on DVD soon I will buy it for my kids to watch.
