Added DiffLines:

* TheDreaded: For Beetlejuice, the Poultrygeist would count as this. His magic had [[NoSell no effect on it]] and nothing he threw at the creature slowed it down in the least. After a while, the Poultrygeist pretty much drove BJ out of his mind with fear and paranoia.

Based on [[Film/{{Beetlejuice}} the hit movie of the same name]], the animated series was produced by {{Nelvana}} and aired for several years on Creator/{{ABC}} and Creator/FoxKids. Its original run lasted from September 1989 to May 1992, with a total of 94 episodes - which in RecycledTheSeries terms is equivalent to about 10 years. It bore only a [[InNameOnly passing resemblance]] to the movie: Barbara and Adam Maitland, the straitlaced protagonists of the movie, and Juno the Caseworker were eliminated entirely. With Beetlejuice as the main character, this ends up making the entire series something of a VillainEpisode.

* ForgotAboutHisPowers: Beetlejuice's magic is practically the SuperpowerLottery of the Neitherworld, with very few other ghostly beings showing the same degree of power. In ''King BJ'' he seems to believe that he was the greatest sorcerer of all time(before Lydia revealed she believed Merlin was the one). With some episodes, his powers are shown to be potent enough that he can take on an entire party of witches or take on another magical being like Bartholomew Batt and send an actual moon crashing down on the bat. In other episodes, he gets handed the IdiotBall and starts cowering before, running away from, or simply get beaten by people who aren't a RealityWarper like he is.
