This legendary movie remains one of the most popular comedy films of all time and the TropeCodifier for the public for Creator/TimBurton's style. It contains the typical gothic imagery you'd expect from Burton and memorable performances by Creator/AlecBaldwin, Geena Davis, Jeffrey Jones, Catherine O'Hara, Glenn Shadix, Creator/WinonaRyder, and Creator/MichaelKeaton as the B-Man himself, as well as the musical stylings of both Creator/DannyElfman and Harry Belafonte. Mix all of these elements together, and it's not hard to figure out why ''Beetlejuice'' soon became a Halloween staple.

The ghosts of the Maitlands return home, not knowing how, and discover they can no longer leave the place unless they want to be beset by {{Sand Worm}}s. Even worse, their home has been sold to the Deetzes, an eccentric yuppie family who want to do a complete overhaul of the house. With no idea what to do about the Deetzes and no real help coming from the CelestialBureaucracy that is the afterlife, the Maitlands learn of a...being named Betelgeuse (pronounced "'''''Beetlejuice'''''", of course) who claims he can rid the house of its new owners. Out of options, Barbara and Adam release him after [[SpeakOfTheDevil saying his name]] [[RuleOfThree three times]]. HilarityEnsues.

This iconic Creator/TimBurton movie remains one of the most popular comedy movies of all time. Though it contains the typical gothic imagery you'd expect from Burton, it also features memorable performances by Creator/AlecBaldwin, Geena Davis, Jeffrey Jones, Catherine O'Hara, Glenn Shadix, Creator/WinonaRyder, and Creator/MichaelKeaton as the B-Man himself, as well as the musical stylings of both Creator/DannyElfman and Harry Belafonte.

''Beetlejuice'' was originally conceived as a very serious horror film titled ''The Maitlands''; Beetlejuice was originally envisioned as a shape-shifting reptilian demon. The involvement of Tim Burton and Michael Keaton helped turn it into more of a comedy.

The movie was so popular that [[WesternAnimation/{{Beetlejuice}} it spawned an animated]] RecycledTheSeries on Creator/{{ABC}} and Creator/FoxKids. It bore little resemblance to the movie, however; the Maitlands and Juno were eliminated entirely, the title character's name was spelt "Beetlejuice", he and Lydia were ''best friends'', and the stories largely took place in Beetlejuice's home dimension of "the Neitherworld".
