Based on the Tim Burton fim Beetlejuice (1988), this series borrowed several characters and concepts from the movie but took great liberties with them (as was necessary to create a program suitable for children). Beetlejuice is a ghost from "The Neitherworld," the land of the dead - he's a trickster and a swindler, but underneath it all he has a big heart. His best friend Lydia is a very kind-hearted twelve-year-old living girl into goth. Together they made the perfect pair - her even-tempered and levelheaded, and him manic and hot under the collar.
The show was produced by Nelvana. The groundbreaking CGI shorts featured in many of the episodes were produced by the Calibre animation team.
