Beetlejuice needs some cash to buy Lydia a present so when she gets a job baby-sitting, he follows suit. But Neitherworld babies are a bit more of a handful than Outerworld ones, and Beetlejuice gets dragged before Judge Mental for a long string of offences. Can Lydia keep him from getting thrown to the Sandworms?
Lydia is getting ready for the big photo show, but she can't decide which of her pictures is the best. Beetlejuice loves all of her work, and decides he wants to buy whichever photo she picks--but he doesn't have any money. (Un)fortunately, the Deetzes kitchen sink has sprung a leak, so Beetlejuice hatches a plan to pose as a handyman, fix the leak, and make a quick buck. But his Neitherworld tools won't stand for being used.
Beetlejuice and Lydia have a fight, and Lydia banishes the ghost to the Neitherworld. Beetlejuice foolishly makes the comment that he can't get Lydia out of his mind, and accidentally teleports her there. Lydia meets up with Beetlejuice's wimpy Will Power and overbearing Prank Factor--can she convince Will to stand up to Prankenstein? And how will she ever get out of Beetlejuice's head?
It's Halloween and Clare's throwing the biggest bash in Peaceful Pines-until Lydia announces that she, too will throw a party. But there are a few problems: 1) all she has to wear is a cute pink bunny costume; 2) there will be no food or decorations; 3) No one is coming. Well, never fear, Mr. Beetleman is here! Beetlejuice introduces Peaceful Pines to 'Party People In a Can', and boy, the town will never be the same.
Beetlejuice has a run-in with a newly-hatched Sandworm, and Lydia accidentally calls him out of the Neitherworld while he's in contact with it, so they both teleport to the Outerworld. While the Neitherworld locals think that Beetlejuice is responsible for banishing the Sandworm and dub him a hero, the baby Sandworm is now in danger from a pair of human hunters. As much as Beetlejuice hates Sandworms, can Lydia ever convince him to help save its life?
Beetlejuice's neighbours kick him out, so he tries to be a 'good neighbour.' But unfortunately, Beetlejuice's idea of a good neighbour isn't quite the same one his friends have. It looks like Beetlejuice is out of a place to stay-until he proves to the others that there is one thing that he's good for.
Beetlejuice takes Lydia on a trip to a Neitherworld Wild West town, where the locals promptly make Beetlejuice their new sheriff. Can you guess why? Naturally, its because Bully the Crud is on his way to run the sheriff out of town. Bully 'develops' an instant crush on Lydia and drags her off to the wedding chapel...at least Lydia's insistent on keeping her last name.
Beetlejuice and Lydia decide that it's time for them to have a car of their own, so they rebuild a salvaged one they find in a Neitherworld wrecking yard. But Beetlejuice delivers Lydia an abnormal carburetor for installation...and although the car they create looks normal at first, it soon becomes evident that he's quite abnormal.
Beetlejuice invents a cologne that changes the personality of anyone it comes in contact with into its polar opposite. When Lydia gets sprayed with it, she becomes a wild, prank-pulling criminal, and, taking Beetlejuice along for the ride, wreaks more havoc on the Neitherworld than BJ's ever been responsible for.
When Beetlejuice blows up the Monster Across the Street's house, he is obligated to take the Monster and Poopsie in (or Jacques and Ginger will rat him out). Desperate to rid himself of his unwanted roommates, BJ even tries rebuilding the Monster's house for him -- only to find out that the Monster likes the Roadhouse! What will BJ do?
Prince Vince wishes that his subjects would love him, so he decides to be a rock and roll star. But his music is so depressing everyone hates it. In order to spare his feelings, Lydia tells him his music is wonderful. The bad effect of this is, now Prince Vince is on perpetual tour. With the entire Neitherworld depressed beyond hope, it may be time for Lydia to tell Vince the truth.
Lydia is stuck competing against Clare in her school's golf P.E. course (hey, it's a private school, after all), and Clare just happens to be the reigning teen golf champ of Peaceful Pines. In an attempt to help Lydia out, BJ teleports Clare to a Neitherworld country club, where she is turned into a golf trophy. Now Beetlejuice and Lydia have to win the golf tournament and get Clare back.
Coincidentally on the very same day Lydia has doubts about her own beauty, the great beast Thing Thong, who steals beautiful things because he feels he is himself ugly, kidnaps her. While Lydia helps Thong find confidence in himself, Beetlejuice tries to 'save' her in the guise of the famed adventurer Grimdiana Bones.
When Lydia joins the Happy-Faced Girls, Beetlejuice laughs--until he finds out how much money a cookie drive can pull in. He rushes back to the Neitherworld where he assembles the Sappy-Face Ghouls and gives them some of his homemade cookies to sell in Peaceful Pines. Too bad the cookies are haunted!
When BJ finds out about the Save-The-Whales Telethon Lydia is involved in, he gets an idea: hold his own telethon and make a fortune! So he holds a Save-The-Smells Telethon to do just that--until he actually, truly, begins to believe in his cause. Who would have thought? Apparently nobody, because when the telethon money mysteriously disappears, Public Opinion rises squarely against Beetlejuice.
Beetlejuice wants to enter the First Neitherworld Beauty Pageant (the prize is a Ton O' Cash), but is turned down because he's a man. Determined to win the prize, BJ launches a ""Men Are Beautiful Too"" campaign, closely followed by a ""Disgusting Is Beautiful Too"" campaign. Finally, the pageant is opened to everybody. But if everybody is in the pageant, who's left to even watch it?
When the Happy Face Girls' outing is called on account of rain, BJ (as Denmother MacCree) takes them to Grislyland, the Neitherworld's newest theme park. But Grislyland's patron cartoon character, Bartholomew Batt, is out for more than a profitable enterprise...Why? Because he's a typical cartoon villain, that's why!
When a beautiful Scandinavian exchange student arrives at Miss Shannon's school, Clare thinks she will burst with envy--until she relieves her fury by embarrassing the exchange student in front of everybody. To get even, Lydia and BJ send Clare to be an exchange student herself--in the Neitherworld.
It's 'Good Neighbor Day' in the Neitherworld, when being nice is a law. Of course, BJ won't stand for it, and causes trouble...which lures in Goody Two Shoes, a Fairy from the Bureau of Sweetness and Prissiness (BSnP). With a wave of her wand, Goody turns everyone into denizens of Mr. Roger's Neighborhood--what a fate!
Yes, you've guessed it: Beetlejuice has an off day and wishes he had never met any of his friends. Clarence Sale shows up and shows him what the Neitherworld--and the real world--would be like without him. Seeing Lydia miserable and friendless convinces BJ to change his mind, and Clarence is rewarded for his trouble with a shiny new car.
It's the anniversary of the day BJ and Lydia met, and BJ presents Lydia with a watch. But time flies, and Beetlejuice and Lydia follow the escaped watch through the Sands Of Time, where they meet Grandfather Time. BJ gives the poor old geezer a cog-attack, thoroughly messing up the flow of Time. They must get Time restarted or nothing will be the same again.
Lydia has to write a paper on Shakespeare for her English class, but can't understand his plays. So BJ takes her to the Neitherworld to meet Shakey's characters, who turn out to be rather disgruntled with their roles. When they kidnap Lydia and try to force her to rewrite their plays, BJ must rescue her; then it's up to the both of them to cure Shakespeare of his monumental writer's block.
Its Pranksgiving in the Neitherworld, and Beetlejuice's rival Pondscum (""Pondscum...Germs Pondscum"") looks as if he's going to beat out BJ for the title of Grand High Prankster. Pondscum proves himself to be lower than a Sandworm's belly when he frames BJ for a crime he didn't commit and gets him sentenced to rehabilitation in NeitherNeitherLand. (Have you seen NeitherNeitherLand? Shudder.) Beetlejuice comes out of the ordeal as Snugglejuice, the Cutest Being in the Neitherworld. Can Lydia reverse the process (and help BJ win the Prank Tournament)?
When Beetlejuice and Lydia pull a scam, Lydia gets sentenced to washing dishes at The Last Resort Resort on the River Schticks. Beetlejuice, haunted by memories of his Uncle Sid and Aunt Irma, who used to take him to the Last Resort Resort when he was a baby, rushes to Lydia's rescue. Can they survive the awful jokes that abound everywhere on the River Schticks?
Beetlejuice and Lydia put on 'Disasterpiece Theatre,' and decide to do Moby Dick as their first episode. But Moby ""Richard"" refuses to change the classic to suit Beetlejuice's notions of what a classic should be, and quits--but not without insulting BJ first. BJ lets the character of Captain Ahab take him over, and leads the others on a dangerous mission through Sandworm Land to get revenge on the whale.
Beetlejuice loses his memory (he's beaned by a satellite), so Lydia takes him to see Dr. Zigmund Void. Void splits BJ's personality, and takes the clone and Lydia within BJ's body by way of a shrinking submersible. They have to find out what is causing BJ's inability to access his memory banks before time runs out and they return to normal size.
Scuzzo frames Beetlejuice for stealing bad jokes, and gets him sent to The Big House. It's up to Lydia to gather up the evidence she needs to spring Beetlejuice--and then to get the Governor to listen to her story. Meanwhile, BJ copes with afterlife under the disturbingly nurturing watch of Warden June Cleaver.
Lydia trips on Beetlejuice's misplaced marbles and sprains her ankle, so BJ takes her to a Neitherworld hospital for treatment. But a greedy resident doctor is looking to make a quick buck and kidnaps Lydia with the intention of charging admission to the public to witness a 'total body transplant'--with BJ as the surgeon!
Beetlejuice tries to cash in on the superhero trend sweeping the Neitherworld by becoming...UltraBeetleMan! With Lydia as his cub reporter sidekick, UBM sets out to thwart crime. Uh...If only there was any. Suddenly, Mt. Gushmore, Scumdon Bridge, The Fallen Arches of Triumph, the Awful Tower--and Lydia--are shrunk by four menacing business tycoons (""Honey, I Shrunk the Lyds""). Can UBM save the day?
Beetlejuice gets pulled into The Chromazone, a Twilight Zone spoof. There, BJ has to help Tod Sperling defeat Ima Loony, one of his creations who has begun writing her own scripts. But BJ loses his mind (literally) in the process. If Lydia can't get into the Chromozone in time, BJ will be brainless forever, not to mention vapid.
When Captain Kidder washes up on the beach babbling of a 90-ft-tall, singing, dancing ape on a tiny island in the middle of the ocean, chaos breaks out. Between BJ and Lydia, Jacques and Ginger, The Monster and Poopsie, The Mayor and Mrs. Bugsly, Chester Slime and Armhold Musclehugger, and Scuzzo and Fuzzo, who will reach the island--and the valuable ape--first?
Four of Beetlejuice's worst enemies--and LipScum--are organized together by a mysterious gangster named Mr. Big who's got BJ's number. His plan: trick BJ into separating his body parts and be unable to reunite them, until sundown does its dirty work (in case you didn't know, not only does BJ lose all his powers if he's fallen apart, but if he's not all back together by sundown, he's as good as exorcised. (Obviously a rule they made up just for this ep but I like it anyway.) Naturally, Mr. Monitor is on the scene to gather ratings.
Donnyjuice is a wanted man with a huge price on his head--which makes for a perfect opportunity for Beetlejuice to get a little 'closer' to his brother (with the aid of handcuffs, of course). But BJ isn't the only reward-seeker on the scene: he must contend with Deader Alive, the famous bounty hunter from Neitherworld TV.
Beetlejuice does the Mayor of Peaceful Pines a favour, but the Mayor reigns on his promise of a cash reward. So Beetlejuice, in a fit of anger, splits his personality into his good and his bad sides, and the bad side wreaks havoc on the town. Lydia and the good side are forced to fetch Dr. Zigmund Void to help remedy the situation.
