Death Battle: Betelgeuse Vs Beetlejuice by ARTIST-SRF Death Battle: Betelgeuse Vs Beetlejuice by ARTIST-SRF
Well to sum this up, I thought about making a live action vs. animated meme of my favorite dead guy, Beetlejuice/Betelgeuse.
The live action one is basically the enemy of everyone in this film the Deetzes, the Maitlands, and everyone else, while the animated one is more of a rebellious kind of hero and often whisks the female protagonist, Lydia to the Neitherworld.

So, since good overcomes evil, I'd say the animated one wins.

Beetlejuice (c) Tim Burton and Warner Bros.

Sorry, Michael Keaton, but I'm going for the cartoon version.

Except Tim Burton basically was pulling for BJ/Lyds from the start, hence the near-forced marriage in the movie and the constant hints thrown into the cartoon. This cannot be denied. It was meant to happen, much as Jareth/Sarah of Labyrinth became canon in the graphic novel (drawn like a manga).

I wouldn't say he's a bad guy.  After all he was doing his job that he was called for and it's not his fault they didn't put him back. He also completed his half of his deal with Lydia, and she didn't complete hers (not entirely her fault, so we're willing to forgive).  Is he meant to be an antagonist?  Yes.  It he a bad guy?  Nah. 

 

Anyways I love them both equally.

Well the live action one might change in this possible sequel that Burton would direct.

Movie version. He takes this considering he's a sadist and is it a bit of reality warper.

True, but in the cartoon, you gotta admit that seeing Beetlejuice torture a bully is also fun to watch.  :XD:

I quite frankly prefer him as a villain.

He was never really intended to be a villain. He was supposed to be an anti-hero in Tim Burton's eyes, but the screenplay, which was a lot more taboo and raunchy than even the film, forced him to be the baddie when Burton didn't want it.

Do you have proof Burton said that? Even if he did say that years ago, he probably likely changed his mind now.

As if him writing the script for Beetlejuice Goes Hawaiian (in which the B-guy becomes good and still vies for Lydia's affections) or being executive producer for the spin-off cartoon that basically implies BJ/Lyds as a pairing on purpose (for instance, the reason behind his red fingertips, and it ain't just due to blood rushing to your hands and feet when you die) isn't proof enough? Also, he didn't change his mind. He knows that he nearly forced the two together in the source film and in the cartoon, had hints galore added in to reinforce the idea of the pairing, so that, if the intended sequel does happen, fans WILL be waiting to see what the B-guy and his "fiance" have been up to these past 20 years.

Um, I doubt he had much say with the cartoon. Executive producer nine times out of ten means nothing at all. If it were, Bryan Singer would have had total over producing X-Men: First Class. He didn't, that was all Matthew Vaughn.

Also, I doubt Beetlejuice marrying Lydia against her will constitutes as a couple.

While he did have to make sure the cartoon passed certain standards, both he and the animators clearly wanted to go beyond the confines of what they were allowed (as evidenced by the Goody Two-Shoes episode and any other episode when BJ is censored OR the fact that the randy animators purposely made Beej/Lyds Rule 34 in their spare time and even Burton basically endorsed it, since it was used as an inside joke behind why Beetlejuice has red fingertips [the "joke" being that Beetlejuice fingers Lydia during her period and that it is dried blood on Beetlejuice's unwashed hands]).

The live action one is technically neutral. He wasn't trying to kill the Deetzes. He didn't care if he did but he was just trying to scare them HIS way. He was also trying to annoy the Maitlands.

Well yes, but he is the antagonist of the film.

Only because he was forced to be. Burton wanted him to be a neutral anti-hero, but the sordid screenplay made him the outright villain, never mind that the focus was either on the boringly deadbeat Maitlands or on Lydia and her yuppie family.

I say Movie Betelgeuse is my man! Because he's evil, and pervy and all this!
Also the movie was more my thing. Cartoon Beetlejuice is way to derpy and stuff, but still sympathic.
But I like the concept of the cartoon show. I love the whole with Lydia and the Neitherworld.

Hmm....I want to say cartoon Beetlejuice, but I also have alot of respect and love for movie Beetlejuice since he kind of was the introduction to the cartoon series being made. Also, somewhere I read that if in fact Tim Burton did make his sequel "Beetlejuice goes Hawaiian" Beetlejuice would've came out as the rebellious unlikely hero we know him to be in the cartoon series because I think the original plot for the sequel was beetlejuice had to save lydia and her family from some hauntings in Hawaii while they're on vacation....so they're both winners in my eyes. Movie Beetlejuice just never had the chance to show that he is indeed a hero no matter how perverted and gross he is. After all, the maitlands still have their afterlives because of him....technically speaking.

By the way,Why did they spell betelguese like that when the title of the movie was Beetlejuice spelled this way.Then when they did the cartoon they also put it Beetlejuice.Let me know if you have any answers to why his name is spelled Betelguese and the title (for cartoon and movie) is spelled Beetlejuice.

Phonetic reasons. Plus, he was named Betelgeuse in reference to the STAR, which is the "armpit" of the constellation Orion, because he (and Lydia, too) happened to be the breakout STAR of the movie that bears his name.

Wow, when actually looking at the two side by side, they hardly look alike. XD The hair and moldiness on the movie version compared to the cartoon is the biggest difference. I think a cartoon version of the movie BJ would be interesting to see!
