An animated series based on the same character from Tim Burton’s movie. It followed the exploits of Beetlejuice and his human friend Lydia Deetz. It debuted on ABC in the fall of 1989, and was an instant hit. In 1991, the show moved to the Fox Network and ran for 65 more episodes.

The typical episode involved Beetlejuice trying to scam fellow citizens of the Netherworld. After the move to Fox, it also began spoofing popular movies and fairytales. In 1994 the show was syndicated on Nickelodeon.
