The Name In Laughter From The Hereafter.
Say it once... Say it twice... But we dare you to say it THREE TIMES
He's guaranteed to put some life, in your afterlife
spinning head
In This House... If You've Seen One Ghost... You Haven't Seen Them All.
Otho opens a can of spray-paint and hands it to Delia, who opens it again.When Beetlejuice switches his number with the voodoo guy he drops his number on his lap and it falls between his legs. Then when he picks it up it's to the left of his legs.

Character Error
When Delia gets trapped against the house by her art, the "extra" with the curly hair and glasses looks briefly directly at the camera before looking back down. When Otho summons the Maitlands into their wedding clothes, they start to age rapidly. Their age isn't always consistent in the following scenes.
Michael Keaton spent only two weeks filming his part in the film, which lasts 17.5 minutes out of the 92-minute running time. It is Keaton's favorite film of his own.

According to Michael Keaton, the Betelgeuse character was described to him by director Tim Burton as "having lived in every time period but no time period." Keaton used this as the jumping-off point to create the character with such features as a shock hairdo, mold makeup, and large teeth. He said that when he first showed up to the set as Betelgeuse the crew was chanting, "Juice, Juice, Juice." This got Keaton excited to do a lot of improvisation during filming.
