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 »

User Reviews

Good animation with great gags
27 July 1999 | by LisasterSee 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.
