I agree, Warner Bros. should get on the release of the BeetleJuice cartoon DVD's. For heaven sake's there's DVD sets of.......Thundercats on the market so Why are there no BeetleJuice DVD's? Its total BS.

NeitherSparky, drop me a line as I'am looking to get BeetleJuice on DVD. I have been watching it on T.V. recently. Unfortunately it was only on as a Halloween special, which I felt was a major tease because I haven't seen it in years and it was and still is a favourite show of mine. Anyway, now I've been trying to get my hands on the DVD's but to my disbelief THEY DON'T EXIST. So if you could hook me up that would be prime. E-mail me at: [email protected]

There is no information ON my site. Just email me.

Welcome to the club, Chiphazard22! Anyone else feels that an official DVD release of the "Beetlejuice" animated series is overdue? I wonder what it is exactly that the people at Warner Bros. are waiting for... Someone to make a sequel to the movie, perhaps? Or even worse: a remake!!?? (Ehhh!!! I'd rather not dwell on that... The very thought of it makes my skin crawl!!!)

reply

actually I think they are making a sequel, according to this site http://videoeta.com/movie/51993

I hope that spawns some desire to make the dvd of the cartoon.

reply

Yeah I mean Tim Burton is already a sell out director. so let's go all the way

reply

Hey whats up? So you've got Beetlejuice DVD's? Thats sweet, I used to watch BeetleJuice all the time when I was a kid. It was the greatest. I can't understand why Warner Bros. hasn't released the cartoon on DVD yet. Anyway, I might be interested in your offer so send me a reply anytime at: [email protected]

reply

NYA! SPARKY! (hugs NeitherSparky tightly) If you're still on this board, I want you to know you ROCK! I found your website while reminiscing about my favorite childhood shows that were all canceled, including the Addams Family, Invader ZIM, and of course, Beetlejuice! You brought back so many memories...as well as a mad spree for Beetlejuice DVDs! XD

I am Bonejangler, hear me scat!

reply

Sparky, you do rock! Guys, if you are looking for the series on DVD, definatly, definatly buy them from Sparky! I got mine in the mail today, and they are great! I ordered both disks of the first season, and am more than pleased. Thanks so much!

reply

pirating is wrong, eitherway. I've done it before and no way in hell are you losing money.

eitherway, the real one is on its way.

reply

Thank you Sparky! I really appreciate it!

reply

Sparky I recently turned my 4 year old niece onto Beetlejuice (that does not sound right) and I think she would love the cartoon. I would love a copy of your discs.

[email protected]

Thanks a million. If you need copies of MTV's Downtown cartoon, The unreleased Gen-13 Animated Movie, Or The Maxx let me know and maybe we can work out a trade. If not I will be happy to buy the discs off ya.

reply

Er...that doesn't look like a complete email address...

I don't visit this forum often so asking me to contact you here isn't a good idea. Everyone is free to go to my website, address in my signature, and email me from there. :)

Are Jack and/or Sally in any episode at any time? Please help.

reply

I am sure they will release at least some of them on DVD soon. Try voting for it at TVshowsonDVD.com.

Waiting for the DVDs is better than breaking the law!

'Are Jack and/or Sally in any episode at any time'

No, but an early version of what would later become Lock Shock and Barrol appear in a few episodes and Mayor Maynot later became the Mayor of Halloween Town, they just changed him a little. And a lot of jokes used on Corpse Bride like the head waiter and second hand shoppe were borrowed from the animated Beetlejuice. Also Paul, the head waiter from Corpse Bride and Nepoleon Bonesapart also appeared in Beetlejuice the animated series. Prince Vince was based on an older version of Vincent, whom was the character in a short film Tim Burton did for Disney. And percy, the black cat Lydia owns, appears in Nightmare before Christmas and the short film Vincent.

The following is not complete.

Things that connect Burton film to film.

Percy the black cat. Percy the cat first appeared in Tim's nineteen eighties short stop motion film Vincent in the opening.
Percy the cat appeared in cell animation form in the Animated series of Beetlejuice in which he is given the name Percy. He appears in multiple episodes including Critter Sitter, The big Face off, and one episode in which some witches try to claim him as their own.
Percy appears in Nightmare before Christmas during Sally's song in which she pets him.
Percy appears in Corpse Bride very briefly.

Nepoleon Bonesapart whom appeared in the episode of the animated Beetlejuice Summer Vacation also appears in The Land of the Dead in Corpse Bride.

The Second Hand store in Corpse Bride in which hands are being sold is a joke from the animated series Beetlejuice.

The head bar tender in Corpse Bride (whom is a head suspended by spider legs) appears in the animated Beetlejuice as head waiter.

The Land of the Dead in Corpse Bride is clearly based on The Neither World of the animated series Beetlejuice. Halloween Town of Nightmare before Christmas is also a similar setting.

To return to the the land of the dead a special phrase had to be said by Emily in Corpse Bride. Similar to the animated series Beetlejuice.

Lady Everglott, Victoria's mother in Corpse Bride is almost identical to one of the mothers in the animated series Beetlejuice, in the episode Critter Sitter. The only difference is the shape of the chin.

Talking Spiders first appear in the animated series Beetlejuice, then in James and the Giant Peach and then Corpes Bride. Two of these are in stop motion. All three are female.

Beetlejuice of the animated series Beetlejuice, Sally of Nightmare before Christmas and Emily in Corpse Bride all have body parts that can remain active when detached. And can easily be re-attached.

In the Beetlejuice animated series the episode It's the Pits we see Jaques the skeleton play on a bone xylophone. The end of the Nightmare before Christmas soundtrack tells that Jack's skeleton children were playing strange little tunes in their xylophone band. In Corpse Bride Bonejangle's band plays bone xylophone.

Victor is the name of the hero in Corpse Bride and is also the name of the boy in Tim Burton's short film, Frankenweenie. The boy in Frankenweenie is named after Victor Frankenstien, the hero of Mary Shelley's novel, Frankenstien, a story Tim Burton clearly loves.

Many other jokes in Corpse Bride are also from the animated series Beetlejuice.

Victor in Corpse Bride is mistakenly called Vincent by Victoria's father. Vincent was Tim Burton's first stop motion character. Vincent Malloy whom first appears in the stop motion short film Vincent also appears in cell animation form in the animated series Beetlejuice as Prince Vince.

The following films have characters with names that match. Beetelejuice with Adam, Barbra, Charles, and Delia. A B C D.
Kim and Jim in Edward Scissorhands
Victor and Victoria in Corpse Bride.

Jack Skellington whom was the main character of Nightmare before Christmas appears in James and the Giant Peach (which Tim Burton produced) as the captain pirate. In fact the centepede sees him and says 'A Skellington...' (pronounced that way.) Then he sees a treasure and says. 'Jack pot.' So it comes off 'Skellington Jack.' The character's name is Jack Skellington.

Mayor Maynot whom first appeared on the aniamted series Beetlejuice as a two faced mayor who changes his mind constantly because of his two contrasting personalities was the basis for the mayor with the rotating head in Nightmare before Christmas.

The following Tim Burton films are set in New York State. Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice the animated series, Batman (Gothem means New York), Batman Returns, Sleepy Hollow and Big Fish.

The following Tim Burton films are done entirely in black and white.
Vincent
Frankenweendie
Ed Wood

The following Tim Burton films have small dogs in them.
Beetlejuice (the dog is indirectly the cause of the couple's death)

Edward Scissorhands (Edward trims the hair of a small dog)
Nightmare before Christmas (Jack's ghost dog, Zero)
Corpse Bride (Victor's dead dog, Scraps)
Mars Attacks (Tim Burton's now deceased dog, Poppie)
The show Family Dog (Tim Burton produced it)
The animted series Beetlejuice (Beetlejuice's neighbour has a literal bull dog)

Dead dogs appear in Corpse Bride, Nightmare before Christmas, Frankenweenie, Beetlejuice the animated series, and Mars Attacks.

The Ghoul scouts whom first appeared in the animated series Beetlejuice, particularly the Sappy Face Ghouls episode were prototypes for Lock, Shock, and Barrol, the trick or treators of Nightmare before Christmas. One fat male, one thin male, and one female, whom when they remove their masks look exactly the same underneath.

Wizard of Oz references in Tim's work include
The Joker saying 'I'm melting' like the witch in Batman.
Sally in Nightmare before Christmas wearing stiped socks like the witche's sister.
A Wizard of Oz episode of Beetlejuice the aniamted series.
The phrase There's no place like home (Dorothy's catch phrase in the Wizard of Oz) being used in Beetlejuice the movie.
The green witches riding on brooms in Nightmare before Christmas.

The vampire baby doll in Nightmare before Christmas, whom strikingly resembles Micky Mouse first appeared in at least two episodes of the animated series Beetlejuice as a disgruntled Neither World cartoon character who had his own theme park.

Smilex is the Tooth Paste company that Charlie's father works for in Charlie and the chocolate factory and it is also the name of the poison The Joker uses in Batman.

You're welcome. It's not even complete. Tim Burton fans constantly are telling me things I should add to it but I'm lazy and never bother to finish it.

According to Wiki (so take that for what it's worth, but it is cited, so that's a bonus) Warner Brothers released the rights to Shout!Factory to be released on dvd this coming year... I'll wait for the official release- there might be extras!

reply

I have seen this floating around the net and on Facebook. Perhaps the news that Shout!Factory is releasing is truth? I certainly hope so!!
