Beetlejuice is my all time favorite movies. Hands down, no other competitor. I have loved it since I was a kid. I used to play the tape soundtrack over and over and over when I was in my room. To this day, I still love it. I love it so much that I am thinking of having a Beetlejuice-themed birthday party for Matt and I.
I need ideas! And while I’m brainstorming, I’ll just share some random stuff with you
Below is a clip from the end of the movie that always cracks me up. He steals the “4″ and acts like its no big deal, LOL!
And when I was a kid, one part I really thought was “scary” was when Otho decides to bring back Adam & Barbara so everyone can “see” the ghosts in human form…
Now I have no “favorite” part because each scene is equally amazing and fun.
I found this photo on the internet, from back in the day, of the cast just goofing off while filming one of the last scenes in the movie:
My love for this movie has instilled a deep, irrefutable love for Michael Keaton, Catherine O’Hara, Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis, Winona Ryder, and Jeffrey Jones. No matter what these people do now, I still love them! Especially Michael, Catherine & Alec!
Here’s a photo of Miss Argentina (“If I knew then what I know now, I wouldn’t have had my little accident”). She’s minor in the film but a classic Burton-type character. She would be a good, relatively easy to create Halloween costume!
And then when I was looking at Beetlejuice toys on Amazon, I found these really neat little action figures! I want them all I wouldn’t even open them but you know I want them!! They are around $50 each, though, so I doubt that will be happening any time soon! Check out the one of the guy who smoked too many cigarettes (“Tryin’ to quit, myself!”):
So funny! They also have classic Beetlejuice, Lydia (in her signature red wedding dress) as well as Otho & the Beetlejuice snake. I can’t get over how funny these are and how much I want ‘em!
Another favorite are Barbara and Adam as their monster version of themselves. (When Juno tells them they need to be scary):
If you’ve seen the movie, you know how dead-on these little action figures are! I was thinking (before I saw the price of them) that they could be the toppers of mini-cakes and there could be one mini-cake per table at the party. But now that they’re $50 each (or more), I’ll have to come up with something else. There are other Beetlejuice figurines out there that are pretty cheap, so I could do all Beetlejuice? The other characters mixed in would be funnier, though.
Or I could do ONE big Beetlejuice cake with just black and white decorations? What do you think? Check out this Beetlejuice cake I found online:
That’s probably one of the better ones I have seen on the internet!
Okay, put your thinking caps on and let me know of any good ideas!
