I was never an amazing fan of the cartoon. It wasn't bad, and it was an interesting film to choose, but it never really tickled my fancy....Originally posted by Crazy8s
Looking back, I found a few interesting topics to comment on.
Beetlejuice: the Cartoon. I liked it lots. Plenty of great puns and wit. I liked that it was not the movie, though I personally didn't care for the whole Beetlejuice family stuff (Mom and Dad and brother). An episode I remember strongly is the one with the party that involved the people in a can. Silly, but creative stuff in that show. Not all that disgusting, either. So, BJ chomped a few bugs and could produce belches and fouls smells--that was not a far stretch from the movie character.
Nooooo! I used LOVE his dullest tones. It's the voice of my youth. Venkman! The fat one in the Gummi Bears! Garfield! That's a sad loss. He had such a great name too!!!
Lorenzo Music's passing--I didn't know about this til I read it here. That's too bad. Everyone seems to associate him with Garfield, but to me, his strongest character was Peter Venkman. He brought Peter to life in his portrayal and anytime I've heard Music's voice in a commercial (of which he did many), I've imagined Dr. V, not Garfield, saying the words. Talented guy with a unique voice. No replacing him.
His Venkman was my favourite. A totally different take to Murray's, and he managed to give cartoon Venkman his own unique character, rather than be just a shallow extension of the movie version.
That is indeed a great shame. I hate getting older - all the people you admired as a kid slowing all dropping like flies.....
