Beetlejuice is an animated television series loosely based on the Beetlejuice film, and ran from 1989 to 1991. The television series was produced by Nelvana Enterprises for Warner Bros. Studios, starring Stephen Ouimette as Beetlejuice, and Alyson Court as Lydia Deetz.


The premise of the animated series was greatly changed from the film, to the point where one only superficially resembled the other. One of the most notable stylistic changes was that the unnamed "afterlife world" from the movie was renamed the "Neitherworld" for the cartoon, and the notion that it was the afterlife was only rarely given an explicit mention on screen. Episodes generally centered around the ghostly con-man Beetlejuice, his best (and only real) friend Lydia, and their adventures together in both the Neitherworld and the "real world." As in the movie, Lydia could summon Beetlejuice out of the Neitherworld (or go there herself) by saying his name three times. The show's humor relied heavily on sight gags and wordplay, some of which was fairly sophisticated for its intended target audience, making it a favorite of a wide range of age groups. Many episodes, especially towards the end of the run, were parodies of famous films, books, and TV shows.

The series was a breakout hit for ABC in its initial season, and later became one of the first animated series to air on Fox's weekday afternoon children's lineup. This led to a situation whereby Beetlejuice was being seen Monday-Friday on Fox while still remaining on ABC's Saturday morning schedule, making it one of the few shows in American television history to be aired concurrently on two different broadcast networks.

In 1989 and 1990, Warner Bros. released most (not all) of the first season as a series of six VHS video cassettes; to date, this has been the only home video release of the cartoon.


There were 94 episodes total.
