In Beetlejuice, the protagonist, Betelgeuse, is a bio-exorcist demon who is enamored with returning to the world of the living. Once Betelgeuse realizes that Barbara and Adam Maitland have fallen through the floor of their beloved home, he recognizes a chance to attain what he wants. The recently deceased will be allowed to leave if they can persuade a living person to say their name three times. His properly planned strategy quickly falls through after he learns that one of the new housemates is the sassy and resourceful Lydia.
She puts Betelgeuse through a series of tasks that he couldn't have expected and wins over the hearts of the Maitlands in the process. Mayhem ensues, as this wild and crazy bunch of misfits attempts to find joy and freedom together, whether dead or alive.
