List[]

Note, most scripts are likely not accounted for. This list only includes scripts that have surfaced fully, or at least enough to confirm them. Principal photography began on March 11, 1987, which while there might be further scripts into production, that likely be the point the production would be moving to daily footage edits and organizing. It must also be noted that Michael Keaton did a lot of ad-libbing for his character Beetlejuice, which would make a lot of his dialog different from the scripts.
