The award-winning Saturday morning cartoon series based on Tim Burton's 1988 horror-comedy classic Beetlejuice is finally getting the DVD treatment courtesy of Shout! Factory. All 94 episodes of the series will be available as a 12-disc box set.
For those of you unfamiliar with the series, it depicts the life of goth teen Lydia Deetz (played by Winona Ryder in the film version), who lives in the suburb of Peaceful Pines, and her wisecracking supernatural pal Beetlejuice, who can only be summoned into the natural world – or sent back to his own realm – by repeating his name three times. Burton served as Executive Producer, and like the feature film the show includes music by his long-time collaborator Danny Elfman. The show premiered in 1989 and nabbed a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Animated Program in 1990, and since it went off the air in 1992 it's been begging for a proper DVD treatment like this.
The Beetlejuice box set debuts on May 28th, and will be available exclusively through Amazon.com. They're taking preorders now...
