Trivia: In one scene, Delia is wearing strangely baggy red pants held up with suspenders. This is actually a sweater that Charles was seen wearing earlier. It was flipped upside-down and repurposed into a pair of pants. This is one of a few instances in the film where Delia is repurposing clothing. Another example is in the first diner scene where the characters are eating Chinese food - in that scene, she's wearing a peculiar headband made of gloves.


Trivia: Tim Burton hated the "Day-O" dance number, and thought it wasn't funny. He feared the scene wouldn't get any laughs from audiences. He ended up being proven wrong - audiences loved it and the scene become somewhat iconic.


Revealing mistake: When Barbara and Adam are digging up Beetlejuice's grave, you can see that a piece of cardboard states "FRAGILE" or something in small print which is proportional to Barbara and Adam at that time. However, the lettering should be ten times larger if the cardboard was proportional to the actual model. (00:44:35)
