Based on Tim Burton's blockbuster film of the same name, this animated spin-off features Beetlejuice, the wild "Ghost with the most" from the "Neitherworld" and his mortal best friend Lydia Deetz, a young, perky goth girl attending a private school in a sleepy little Connecticut town. Upon befriending Lydia, Beetlejuice promptly whisks her off from her ordinary life into wacky adventures in the land of the dead, or Neitherworld, which is filled with kooky characters and madcap monsters at every turn! Now all 94 ghoulish episodes have popped up on DVD for the first time with this hauntingly good 12-disc set!

I thought on the first episode that he was just going to make a bunch of lame puns and turn into his joke for comedic effect, but I soon learned in another episode that his powers are tied to what he says, so he has no control over turning into his puns after he's said them. For instance, one episode he casually says he can't get Lydia out of his mind, so she gets warped into his mind and then has to find a way out. I also want to point out that Beetlejuice and Lydia working off each other make the best episodes. There are some episodes (particularly in season 4) where Beetlejuice tries to carry the whole show by himself and it doesn't usually work. Also, being an older cartoon, there are sometimes where Beetlejuice pretends to be a girl to hang out with Lydia's friends. Now Beetlejuice is capable of transforming into almost anything with his magic and he has a twisted, disgusting sense of humor...so whatever. But when there's an episode where he's trying to win a beauty contest as a woman, all I can say is why am I watching this?
I can say I liked all of the first three seasons (the first case of DVDs), but season 4 has been half and half so far. I still have a whole other case of DVDs to go so I'm hoping I'm just in a slump. I'm glad I bought it after the price drop.
Though I know I should be wary,
Still I venture someplace scary;
Ghostly hauntings I turn loose....

The quality of the transfer is very good during season 1, but somewhere around season 2 (and for one episode in season 1), the picture quality got slightly softer and a bit smeared, which is what another reviewer was referring to as "VHS quality". I have two guesses as to what happened. 1) Shout couldn't get a hold of the master tapes, and had to work with backup copies or tapes retrieved from TV stations that once aired the show, or 2) That's how the master tape turned out, and that's what got transferred to DVD. Remember that in the late 1980s when this show was produced editing was done in the composite video domain from tape to tape so it's not beyond the possibility that equipment in the workflow might have smeared the picture a bit.
Attached are DVD video "snapshots" grabbed using VLC player to show you the quality of the transfer. The second one is from season 2 with slightly smeared picture quality.
The quality is good for the time frame it was originally aired in. No episodes have been remastered for that premium dvd experience but obviously it shows every episode, no skips, just as they aired in the early 90's.
It has loads of watch time- including 94 episodes within the box set.
