This is a cel from the Beetlejuice episode titled "Brinkadoom" (Season 4, Episode 25). This is from the beginning scene where lightning bugs attack BJ after he tries to eat one of them. This cel is from the part where Beetlejuice’s tongue gets twisted up as the bugs gather together to go after him. (Of course he makes sure to add in a line about getting "tongue tied" at the wrong moment.)

This is such a great cel! Beetlejuice was one of my absolute favorite childhood shows and I have many fond memories of watching it when I was young, especially at my grandmother's house or when I had to stay home from school sick. (I can even recall a day when I faked being sick so I could stay home just to watch it. Oh the days when DVR didn’t exist and setting up a VCR timer to tape something while you weren't home was like figuring out rocket science...haha.) Anyways, this show is so hilarious! I love it’s various puns and sight gags, so I’m insanely happy that I was able to get a great shot of the “ghost with the most” in the middle of one of his infamous puns. This cel definitely captures what the show Beetlejuice was all about and it's unique sense of humor. Anyone looking at this shot can see the literal version of being “tongue tied”, and I just love it. :D

In the future I’d love to get more cels from this show and I hope that one day I will be able to add a shot of Lydia in her red spiderweb outfit to my gallery as well. When I was little I loved her friendship with Beetlejuice and always wished I had a friend like that of my own (so to speak). I’m just so happy to have one of them in my collection. ^_^ Beetlejuice cels don't seem to be that common, so I know how lucky I am to have been able to snag such a great shot for my collection!

Also wanted to say that the background is an original one from the show, but is unmatching to this scene. (I thought it looked nice scanned with it in anyways.)

I've also decided to add a youtube video of the scene in which each of my pieces of production art appears. (Just a warning that spoilers for the episode will be included). I included the intro on this video because Beetlejuice has one of the best! This cel appears at about 3:23. Also my apologies for the sucky video quality but it seems like there’s no HQ version of Season 4 around. A shame since I think this show deserves a HQ DVD release. =(
