    I saw this movie in theaters in St. Louis on my last month living there before moving to Omaha, i saw it 5 times and i loved it.

    I was obsessed with this movie as i had dressed up as Beetlejuice for Halloween and i had the cards and toys plus i watched/taped the animated show religiously on ABC and Fox all the time as a kid. I even had the coloring books and some of the BK toys.

      I don't remember if I ever saw beetljuice in the theater, I think I may have watched it soley on VHS & HBO. I was a big fan though, and likewise dressed as beetlejuice one halloween (I went with an unusual route & imitated the maroon suit he wore at the end instead of trhe striped one from most of the movie). I also watched the cartoon a lot, though I never recorded it. I never had any toys/books/other items. (I do however still have a copy of the movie that I recorded off the TV.)

        It had a big impact on me as a kid, but I didn't re-watch it for a long time. I was kind of afraid it wouldn't be as fun and clever as I remembered. But it's maybe my favorite Tim Burton film.

          I remember watching this movie at the Pavilion movie theater in Park Slope Brooklyn on Halloween, I was like 7 or 8. I really enjoyed it and the animated series that came out the following year.

            One of my all time favorite movies. In the mid 80s I used to go over to a friend of the family's house and the only movie she had that I liked was Beetlejuice. I must have seen that movie at last 100 times during my youth. I've since got my kid into it and she watches it anytime it's on during Halloween.

              Nice. I myself prefer the outfit he wore towards the beginning (with the trench coat) to the stripey suit. I was going to do that for Halloween once, but I didn't end up getting it together that year.

                  Yeah, but I don't remember if it was a Saturday morning cartoon or part of one of the after school line ups.

                    Originally it was a Saturday Morning cartoon then it got moved into Fox's after school line-up.

                      It's still on here.

                      Although I'm a big fan of the movie. I like how the cartoon has Beetlejuice and Lydia as friends. I don't like how the ghosts aren't in the house anymore though.

                        When I was a kid, I had a copy that I had taped off of television. I watched it religiously. I also remember watching and loving the cartoon.

                        I just noticed last week that it (the cartoon) is finally available on DVD.

                          I loved the cartoon! The toys were pretty great too, but what I remember was a pair of pajamas I had that. They were printed with the pinstripe suit and they kicked ass.

                            I had a friend who used to get horrible nightmares after watching the wedding Dress scene where the Maitlands get old and decay. So i used to have to fast forward the scene if he was over.
