->''Though I know I should be wary,\\
Still I venture someplace scary.\\
Ghostly haunting I turn loose:\\
Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, BEETLEJUICE!''
-->-- '''Lydia Deetz'''

Meet Lydia Deetz, a PerkyGoth girl attending a private school in a sleepy little Connecticut town while trying to deal with her well-meaning but eccentric parents. One day she comes across Beetlejuice, the manic self-described "Ghost With the Most", who befriends her and whisks her off from her ordinary life into frequent adventures in the {{Cloudcuckooland}} world of the Neitherworld. HilarityEnsues on a regular basis.

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 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 straight-laced protagonists of the movie, and Juno the Caseworker were eliminated entirely, and the titular character's name was spelt "Beetlejuice" rather than "Betelgeuse".

Other differences were that rather than the bureaucratic nightmare that was the Afterlife from the movies, Beetlejuice lived (sort of) in the Neitherworld, which was inhabited mostly by outrageous monsters. Beetlejuice's antics became more prank-based, although he did still attempt to con people out of their money on a regular basis. He remained largely a {{Jerkass}}, though now a [[{{Badbutt}} family-friendly]], moderately well-meaning JerkWithAHeartOfGold. The DirtyOldMan aspect of Beetlejuice's personality was cut almost completely to avoid the UnfortunateImplications that would otherwise arise from him now being the best friend of a 12-14 year old girl, and most of their adventures took place in Beetlejuice's ghostly home dimension - the Neitherworld.

Since it was a children's show, despite many characters being technically dead, very rarely was the concept of actual mortality brought up.

However, 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. Also, Creator/TimBurton remained 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.

[[http://www.shoutfactory.com/product/beetlejuice-complete-series The entire series--ABC and Fox episodes--was released on DVD in a 12-disc set on May 28, 2013.]]

----
!!The AnimatedAdaptation TV series provides examples of:

* AbsenteeActor: Lydia doesn't appear in the episode where Beetlejuice's feet ran away (except when he briefly morphs into her).
* 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.
* AdaptationalHeroism: Well, ''heroism'' is probably taking it a bit far but Beetlejuice is not the antagonist he was in the film.
* AllJustADream: Subverted in one episode with a ''Film/TheWizardOfOz'' parody. After apparently clicking her heels (repeating "Ripple dissolve to scene 326" instead of "There's no place like home") and returning home, Lydia wakes up and realizes what a sappy dream she had. Beetlejuice then appears to tease her about it. The subversion comes when Lydia asks how Beetlejuice could know what she dreamed about, and why everything was still in black and white. It then turns out that ''Beetlejuice'' was the one who was dreaming. He's mortified to have dreamt about a lot of the "cute" stuff that occurred in the Neitherworld's version of Oz.
* AlphaBitch: Claire Brewster.
* AlternateContinuity: From the movie, starting with Beetlejuice not being a villain.
* 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 she actually likes BJ - 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. Oddly enough, the only character that was in the movie that didn't change much was Lydia's father.
** Only because there was nothing to change in him to begin with.
* AnimatedActor: We discover in one episode that the cartoon is actually a (reality??) show on the Neitherworld Network, where Mr. Monitor works. After Mr. Monitor cancels BJ's show, BJ goes to work in the mailroom. He quickly takes the opportunity to steal some show ideas from a colleague and is rapidly promoted to Mr. Monitor's supervisor. He eventually gets demoted after running out of ideas, and ultimately [[StatusQuoIsGod gets his old "show" back]].
** Subsequent episodes sometimes came back to this idea and featured BJ hosting shows on the Neitherworld Network like [[Series/MasterpieceTheatre MonsterPiece Theatre]].
* AntiHero: Beetlejuice is a type IV/V - while the series mellows him out from the villain of the movies, he's still the most disliked person in the Neitherworld. Not only is he a constant prankster, but he's also lazy, selfish, greedy and arrogant. It's easy to believe that he would be much, much worse if it weren't for the fact that he idolises Lydia and would do absolutely anything to help her or make her happy.
* 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.
* BerserkButton: When anybody threatens Lydia, or threatens to get between Beetlejuice and Lydia, he always gets mad.
** He also can't stand a wild goose chase, literally.
* BigDamnHeroes: Beetlejuice pulls this off every now and again when Lydia is in real danger.
* BizarroUniverse: "Dr. Beetle and Mr. Juice".
* BlackSheep: Beetlejuice qualifies as this, as proven in the episodes where Lydia meets his parents pleasant, hard-working clean freaks.
* BlahBlahBlah
* BlondeBrunetteRedhead: Charles, Lydia, and Delia.
** Also, Claire, Bertha, and Prudence.
** In addition to May, Zippora, and Delia.
* CampStraight: Jacques [=LaLean=]
* CatchPhrase: It's SHOWTIME! Also, Lydia's "Deadly Vous!"
** Examples. You know I hate 'em.
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: The cartoon adaptation doesn't have Otho, Juno or the Maitland couple (the couple played by Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis). Ironically, there is theoretically room for Juno.
* {{Clingy Jealous G|irl}}uy: A platonic(ish) variant. Beetlejuice shows this whenever anyone else wants to seriously occupy Lydia's time - including a copy of himself.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Lydia's mother Delia borders on this trope. She actually seems to ''like'' the Neitherworld, and her bizarre art is extremely popular there.
* CoolCar: The Dragster of Doom, a.k.a. "Doomie."
* ConvictedByPublicOpinion: Subverted when Beetlejuice is framed for some sort of crime and everyone automatically assumes he's guilty. The subversion comes when you remember that Beetlejuice has ''already'' pulled so many pranks that it's a lot easier to understand just why the rest of the Neitherworld immediately blames him whenever something goes wrong.
* {{Crossdresser}}: Beetlejuice, who often disguises himself as "Betty Juice" to pass off as one of Lydia's girlfriends.
* CurseCutShort: In the episode "[[RobinHood Robbin Juice]] of Sherweird Forest", the minstrel character Alan Airedale sings songs about Beetlejuice that alternate from praise to a type of TheVillainSucksSong. One particular verse:
-->"Robin Hood, he can't be trusted; Robin Hood, his heart is rusted. Robin Hood, he's got no class; Robin Hood is such an..."
--> '''*BJ breaks his lute over his head*'''
* DarkSkinnedBlonde: Claire.
* ADayInTheLimelight: Some of the other characters in the show occasionally have episodes that focus on them, although Beetlejuice and Lydia are still involved.
* DepravedKidsShowHost: Beetlejuice on the episode "Uncle BJ's Roadhouse."
* DidYouJustHaveTeaWithCthulhu: Basically the whole premise. Beetlejuice is... [[InexplicablyAwesome somewhat more powerful]] than many of the specters that show themselves, and is certainly [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} very strange]], yet the two are mostly inseparable.
* DoItYourselfPlumbingProject: Charles insists on trying-and failing-to fix a leaky faucet in one episode. To earn money to buy one of Lydia's photos, Beetlejuice disguises himself as a repairman named Mr. Beetleman, and offers to fix it himself. Of course, he's even worse at it than Charles.
--->'''Mr. Beetleman''': Where's the drip?
--->'''Delia''': In the kitchen, trying to fix the leak.
* DontTryThisAtHome: When he's about to [[ItMakesSenseInContext jump into a small glass of water from 15,000 feet in the air]], Beetlejuice takes a moment to warn the kids watching at home about his stunt:
--->'''Beetlejuice''': Whatever you do, don't try this at home, because IHaveNoIdeaWhatImDoing.
* DoorJudo: In one episode, Beettlejuice repeatedly fails to break a door down before remembering he can simply teleport past it.
* DoomyDoomsOfDoom: [[CoolCar The Dragster of Doom]].
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Beetlejuice loves playing pranks on Lydia's parents, but he'll only go so far. Boris Todeath didn't have that problem, and Beetlejuice ended up actually ''protecting'' Lydia's father when one of Boris's pranks threatened to make him a ghost.
* EveryProperLadyShouldCurtsy: Lydia at the end of the Fox series opening.
* EvilLaugh: Beetlejuice does this every now and again - and in the intro. Lydia did it along with him when they turned into {{Mad Scientist}}s while building Doomie.
* EvilSoundsDeep: In ''Not So Peaceful Pines'', Beetlejuice's evil half speaks in a slightly deeper voice.
* EvilTwin: Actually, Beetlejuice is the ''evil'' twin. Surprised much? Didn't think so...
* {{Expy}}: Prince Vince is based off of Vincent Malloy from Tim Burton's short film ''Vincent''.
** Unless it's an AdaptationNameChange, I.M. Smallhead is loosely based on Harry the Hunter from the movie.
* FaceHeelRevolvingDoor[=/=]HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: In a RobinHood parody, BJ steals from the corrupt Sheriff of [[JustForPun Rotting-Ham]] and gives to the poor, but begins to keep more for himself, until he is the wealthiest person in the village. The sheriff, now destitute, becomes a vigilante to steal from BJ and give to the poor.
* FantasticVoyagePlot
* {{Flanderization}}: Lydia's dad. "Large crowds make me nervous! Being nervous makes me nervous!"
* FusionDance: Beetlejuice has cloned himself, had his skeleton develop a mind of its own and leave his body, or been split into his "good" and "evil" halves. They always end up fusing back into the regular Beetlejuice.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: And plenty of it. That's what happens when Creator/TimBurton produces a kid's show.
* GhostShipping: Lydia and Beetlejuice.
* GoryDiscretionShot: Whenever Beetlejuice eats a bug.
* HangingJudge: [[PunnyName Judge Mental]].
* HartmanHips: Delia
* HeroWithAnFInGood: Beetlejuice often fails in his attempts to be nice to others. When suggested to make his neighbors feel "wanted," he does this by putting up {{Wanted Poster}}s of Ginger all over town, getting her arrested.
* HiddenHeartOfGold: Beetlejuice has one of these, although the absolute last thing he wants is for anyone but Lydia to find out about it.
* HostageForMacGuffin: Lydia was once held as "collateral" to make Beetlejuice pay his credit card bills.
* HurricaneOfPuns: Lots of that too. They can get a little tiresome at times...
* HypocriticalHumor: In the episode "Two Heads are Better than None", Beetlejuice claims that he never wears "stupid cowboy hats", when he actually did wear a cowboy hat in previous episodes and in the movie.
* InconvenientSummons: Beetlejuice is a rock-star so famous that fans can't stop chanting his name... which proves problematic when Lydia is in a bind.
* InexplicablyAwesome: Beetlejuice really ''is'' the Ghost With The Most. How? We'll never know.
* IntergenerationalFriendship: Lydia and Beetlejuice. At a guess Beetlejuice may have been in his late 30s at his time of death - and he's hundreds of years old now.
** LikeBrotherAndSister
* InTheNameOfTheMoon: Lydia has a magical incantation she recites to summon Beetlejuice and change her own clothing. Usually, however, she skips the long version and just says his name three times. She uses the full incantation multiple times throughout the series:
-->'''Lydia''': Though I know I should be wary
--->Still I venture someplace scary
--->Ghostly haunting I turn loose
--->Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice!
** Presumably, this full incantation is unnecessary, and just serves to remind us that Lydia has a flair for the dramatic.
* InsultBackfire: Whenever Beetlejuice is called ugly or smelly, he is flattered.
* InvoluntaryShapeshifting: Beetlejuice, based on wordplay in his dialogue. It has been the cause of many a troublesome escapade and is his greatest weakness.
* ItsAWonderfulPlot: A rare example of being both subverted ''and'' played straight when it seems like everyone in the Neitherworld is better off without Beetlejuice, but it turns out that Lydia is miserable in the real world. BJ immediately thinks that he can just become part of her life and make her happy again, but is informed by his guide that he's allowed no contact with her. Cue the demand to have everything put back the way it was.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Beetlejuice is this trope. Aside from his affection for Lydia, he also seems to have a soft spot for Doomie, Lydia's parents, and also likes Jacques, which mortifies Beetlejuice when Jacques finds out. Though he won't admit to any of them (except about Lydia), he does have a reputation to keep.
* [[KickTheSonOfABitch Kick the Bitch]]: Claire Brewster is Beetlejuice's most common target, but she usually has it coming.
* KidWithTheLeash: Lydia is the ''only'' person Beetlejuice will willingly listen to.
* LargeHam: Beetlejuice as a general rule, but in some episodes more than others. The episode where he becomes a rock star by making armpit noises is a particularly strong example.
* LaserGuidedKarma: Beetlejuice delivers this to Claire Brewster on a regular basis.
* LetsGetDangerous: Most of the time, Beetlejuice is a lazy, pranking con-man. But if Lydia is ever in any real danger, or if someone like Claire Brewster has insulted her, BJ will show just how he got the title of Ghost With The Most.
* LetsMeetTheMeat[=/=]RaisingTheSteaks
* LighterAndSofter
* LightIsNotGood[=/=]SugarBowl: The Neitherworld's prison system consists of a Candyland-like environment run by an {{Expy}} of Little Bo Peep, where malcontents are "rehabiliated" into cute, sweet and playful creatures. Beetlejuice is absolutely terrified of the place.
* LiteralGenie: Beetlejuice's InvoluntaryShapeshifting.
* MadScientist: Beetlejuice occasionally becomes this, such as when he made his "New U" cologne and when he built Doomie. Lydia became a female version when she helped BJ build Doomie.
* [[MagicSkirt Magic Spiderweb Poncho]]: Lydia changes into a red spiderweb-patterned poncho when she enters the Neitherworld.
** The later season episodes subvert this trope and occasionally have Lydia's poncho moved aside to reveal the black leotard she wears underneath.
* 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 eight years old.
* MediaWatchdog: Goody Two-Shoes the fairy is a pretty obvious parody of them.
* MediumAwareness
* MediumBlending: In-Universe television commercials are CGI animated - although the quality is clearly dated.
* {{Meganekko}}: Prudence.
* MonsterClown: Scuzzo the Clown, as well as his brother Fuzzo.
* MoralityChain: Lydia is this for Beetlejuice on occasion.
* MultipleChoicePast: Beetlejuice either started living in the Neitherworld after his death or he lived in the Neitherworld his entire life and always was a ghost.
* MythologyGag: Several scenes and in-jokes from the movie:
** Beetlejuice sings Harry Belafonte's "Banana Boat Song" in the debut episode.
*** Lydia also sings that song in the debut episode as well.
*** She also rode her bike past the bridge where the Maitlands crashed.
** In one episode, Beetlejuice hocks into his jacket.
** In another episode, after Lydia sends Beetlejuice away to keep him from trouble, he screams at Claire to "SAY IT!!" (saying his name 3 times).
** In "Not So Peaceful Pines," Beetlejuice introduces himself as a "bio-exorcist" - his job from the movie.
** Beetlejuice's fear of sandworms comes from the movie, where [[spoiler:one eats him]].
** Several episodes feature cameo appearances by ghosts that attended the waiting room of the dead, such as the diver that was eaten by a fish and the fashion model who was cut in half.
** In the episode "Running Scared", Beetlejuice shuts up Claire Brewster by making a metal plate appear over her mouth, which he did in the movie to keep Barbara Maitland from saying his name after she unzipped her lips.
** In "Spooky Boo-Tique", he advertises through the TV like he did with the Maitlands in the movie. He even dresses like a cowboy at one point, but exactly like in the movie.
* NameDrop: From "Super Zeroes":
-->'''Beetlejuice:''' (''as "Super Beetleman"'') As Jack Kirby as my witness, I'll never go arch-villainless again!
* {{Nephewism}}: Beetlejuice sometimes disguises himself as Lydia's nonexistent cousin B.J. in order to tag along on Deetz family outings. Her parents, though mildly confused, never seem to outright object or question this. Charles and Delia apparently each consider "Cousin B.J." to be the other's nephew.
* NewPowersAsThePlotDemands: Aside from shapeshifting according to what he says and flying, Beetlejuice sometimes displays other bizarre powers, such as controlling inanimate objects, using his shapeshifting power on other ghosts, and making Claire grow a thick black moustache, among other things.
* NightmareFetishist: Lydia. She's an ordinary human with a taste for the macabre, likes bugs and spiders, takes frequent trips to the Neitherworld, and is best friends with a [[ThePigpen proudly disgusting]] ghost.
* TheNotSoHarmlessPunishment: In one episode, Beej and Lydia (and others) are playing baseball in the Neitherworld. At some point it is announced that the game has changed to "Sudden Death", meaning that the losers will have to stand in the "Losers' Circle", an area enclosed by a rope. Beej is unimpressed (as he's been dorking around the entire game anyway) until the "circle" opens up into a fang-lined maw that belches a fireball into his face.
* OnceAnEpisode: A short animated clip directed by Creator/TimBurton, usually framed as a ShowWithinAShow. And it's often revenant to the plot of the episode.
* OneGenderSchool: Ms. Shannon's School for Girls.
* OverlyLongGag: All throughout the episode "Beauty and the Beetle": "Grim-diana BOOOOOOOOONNNNEESSSSS! *Cue the giant boulder* This happens a grand total of ''six times'' over the course of one episode. Beetlejuice lampshades it, too, the last time it happens:
--> '''Beetlejuice:''' Talk about a running gag.
* PapaWolf: Picking on Lydia is a bad idea. A ''very'' bad idea. And when she's in real danger, Beetlejuice will do whatever it takes to rescue her.
* ParentalBonus: The Shakespeare and Poe episodes, among others.
* PerkyGoth: Lydia
* ThePigPen: Beetlejuice himself.
* PowerIncontinence: Implied. Beetlejuice suffers InvoluntaryShapeshifting to match some throwaway word or phrase he uses.
* RecycledTheSeries
* RavenHairIvorySkin: Lydia, natch.
* RealityWarper: Beetlejuice seems to be on the lower-end.
* RedheadsAreUncool: Prudence.
* RichBitch: Claire Brewster, again.
* TheRival: Scuzzo the Clown is Beetlejuice's arch-rival.
* RunningGag: Several.
** "Grimdiana Boooooooooooones!" (Is run over by a boulder)
** And a one-episode gag - "[[Theatre/{{Brigadoon}} Brink-a-doom]]!"
** Ginger crying every time she's called a spider in the ''Wizard of Oz'' episode.
* ShoutOut: While training for a fitness contest, Jacques - who is himself a shout out to Jack [=LaLanne=] - copies a scene out of the ''Film/{{Rocky}}'' franchise. This is just the tip of the iceberg, mind you.
** One of Beetlejuice's other neighbors is a tap-dancing spider named [[Creator/GingerRogers Ginger]].
** The Monster Across the Street resembles [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Gossamer]].
* ShrunkenHead: There's a character who appears to be based on the hunter at the end of the movie, in that he has a tiny head and his lips seem to be sewn together.
* TheSlacker: Beetlejuice dreads the idea of having to get a job, preferring to play pranks on people and con them out of their money. It's subverted in one episode when he gets a job as a scarecrow on a beetle farm and proves to be very good at it. In part, it was because he wanted to eat the beetles himself, but also because he had a lot of fun using his powers to screw around with the birds who were trying to eat the beetles first.
* SmallNameBigEgo: Claire is convinced that she is God's gift to Peaceful Pines. She's also oblivious to the fact that just about everyone hates her guts.
* SomethingCompletelyDifferent: "Uncle BJ's Roadhouse," a full episode parody of ''PeeWeesPlayhouse'' and "Poe-Pourri," which can best be described as "What if someone put Edgar Allan Poe's poetry to animation?"
* SplitPersonalityMerge: Done in multiple episodes:
** One episode has Beetlejuice accidentally cloning himself. The two Beetlejuices start competing for Lydia's attention, which ends up making her miserable. When they realize this, the two Beetlejuices merge back into one.
** Another episode has Beetlejuice splitting into his good and evil sides. When the evil side threatens to destroy Peaceful Pines, Lydia and the ghostly psychiatrist Dr. Zigmund Void have to merge them back together again.
** 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... in his ''head.''
-->'''Will Power:''' He thinks about you all the time! See? ''*pointing*'' His shrine to Lydia!
* StandardSnippet: ''"Music/AlsoSprachZarathustra"'' appears frequently.
* SugarBowl: Neither-neither Land, the only place the ghouls truly dread.
* TakeThat: "Uncle B.J.'s Roadhouse", a parody of ''Pee Wee's Playhouse''. See also Goody Two Shoes, who represents the Neitherworld Bureau of Sweetness and Prissiness, or [[FunWithAcronyms BS&P]] for short.
* ThreeShorts: Some episodes were made up of two eleven-minute shorts, while others were full-length twenty-two minute stories. The episode with ''Uncle B.J.'s Roadhouse'' was the first and only episode to screen three shorts. The other shorts that episode contained were ''Scarecrow'' and ''The Son Dad Never Had.''
* TransformationSequence: Lydia
* TrueArtIsIncomprehensible: Delia's weird sculpture art makes her a laughingstock in the real world, but the residents of the Neitherworld love it. [[invoked]]
* TwentyFourHourPartyPeople: In the Neitherworld, you can buy them in cans.
* TheUnintelligible: Fuzzo the Clown's brother Scuzzo, who speaks solely in honks, beeps and squeaks.
* UselessSuperpowers: Beetlejuice's powers are ''only'' good for "[[UnusualEuphemism juicing]]" ([[TheTrickster pranking]]) people. This is good when AcceptableTargets are present. It is not good when one, say... needs stock for a bake sale.
--> '''Beetlejuice''': "Do not dunk?" (''dunks Neitherworld cookie in milk'') "'''''[[InstantPeopleJustAddWater Instant Monster, Just Add Milk!]]'''''"
* ValleyGirl: Like, Claire Brewster.
* VanishingVillage: The episode "Brinkadoom."
* VillainTeamUp: Several antagonists from past episodes team up to get revenge on Beetlejuice by tricking him into making himself fall apart, at which point his powers won't work and he's easy prey.
** They form the Society of Neitherworld Outlaws, Thugs, Rogues and Goons. Or, [[FunWithAcronyms S.N.O.T.R.a.G!]]
* VisualPun: Beetlejuice's InvoluntaryShapeshifting.
* WildCard: Beetlejuice is one - even when he makes a promise to Lydia, he inevitably crosses his fingers, and usually breaks it. He's extremely unreliable as a good guy and it's only because of Lydia that he does anything vaguely heroic at all - and even then it's usually to set right what he made wrong.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Or {{Sandworm}}s, in Beetlejuice's case.
** Or even cutesy things.
* WritersBlock: In one episode, Creator/WilliamShakespeare shows up suffering from this.
* YesMan: Mayor Maynot's assistant I.M. Smallhead.
