* PoisonousFriend: Beetlejuice is this for Lydia at times, as he will not tolerate any ill treatment of her. In "A Ghoul and His Money," the breaking point for him is when a snooty ghost looks down on her for being alive, and he proceeds to break his no-juicing contract in order to get revenge.

* PoisonousFriend: Beetlejuice is this for Lydia at times, as he will happily drag her along into his latest scheme or scam, whether she's willing or not. He's deeply loyal to her, though, and he will not tolerate any ill treatment of her. In "A Ghoul and His Money," the breaking point for him is when a snooty ghost looks down on her for being alive, and he proceeds to break his no-juicing contract in order to get revenge.

* LiteralMinded: Beetlejuice is also this at times. For example, in the very first episode, he thinks that babysitting involves actually ''sitting on babies''.

Added DiffLines:
* LoonyFriendsImproveYourPersonality: The episode "It's a Wonderful Afterlife" suggests that Lydia developed her confident, friendly nature as a direct result of her relationship with Beetlejuice.

* TheDeadCanDance: Beetlejuice ''loves'' to dance, and often pulls Lydia into midair to do just that.

* LongingLook: Type one happens infrequently, and usually with a degree of subtlety. Type three (the jealous glare) happens in "Prince of the Neitherworld," when Beetlejuice has his GreenEyedMonster moment, with absolutely no subtlety whatsoever.

* ManChild: Beetlejuice was possibly in his late 30s at his time of death. And he's been dead for several hundred years. Mentally, though, he's about ten years old.

** Yet another had Beetlejuice's skeleton escape from his flesh out of protest. His bones preferred a classy lifestyle, rather than seeing things through "gross-colored glasses". * StalkerShrine: A humorously innocent variation on the trope. Beetlejuice's adoration of Lydia extends so far that he's built her a shrine... inside his ''head.''

Despite all the changes, the show maintained a lot of the same manic energy and clever visuals as the movie. Many jokes from the movie were recycled throughout the series. Creator/TimBurton was involved as a producer, and Creator/DannyElfman did the theme music. Therefore, it's generally considered one of the better film-to-TV translations - admittedly this isn't ''hard,'' but it is rare, especially when you're adapting a movie made for older audiences into a SaturdayMorningCartoon and you're trying to balance the adult content with kid-friendly content.

* AchillesHeel: Beetlejuice's powers won't work unless his body is whole. If he's missing his head or his feet (to name but two examples), he's all but helpless. His shapeshifting isn't entirely voluntary either. Cleanliness is also like Kryptonite to him.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: [[invoked]] Beetlejuice is still a ghostly con artist, but he's no longer a lech. Lydia still likes gothic, freaky things, but she's no longer suicidal, and Beetlejuice is her best friend; she didn't like him much at all in the movie. Delia is still an oblivious flake, but instead of being a social-climbing urban yuppie on the cutting edge of fashion, she's a blissful, preppy, suburban homemaker who now seems to be Lydia's biological parent (or at least is treated as such). The only character that was in the movie that didn't change much was Lydia's father, largely because he wasn't given too much of a personality in the first place.

* AuthorAppeal: Tim Burton's love of spirals and stripes has been noted in his entry on this trope's main page, and he indulges it here. While Beetlejuice wore a variety of outfits in the film, in the cartoon he almost exclusively wears his black-and-white pinstripe suit and purple shirt, and almost all of his transformations involve stripes in one form or another. The sandworms are also colored with purple and blue stripes. * BadFuture: In "Pest O' the West," Beetlejuice uses a crystal ball to see what will happen if he abandons the town to Bully the Crud. To his absolute horror, he finds that without his intervention, Bully pulls an AndNowYouMustMarryMe with ''Lydia'', and they have several children besides. The RoaringRampageOfRescue commences immediately.

Aside from his affection for Lydia, he has a soft spot for Doomie and Lydia's parents; he also likes Jacques, which mortifies Beetlejuice when Jacques finds out. However, he won't admit to any of these (except Lydia), since he does have a reputation to uphold.
