Beetlejuice Wiki

Mom's Best Friend is the 1st episode of season 3.



At his old tricks again, BJ torments Poopsie, this time in the form of another dog. Big mistake this time, as the Neitherworld dogcatcher collered him and crated him to the Dog Pound. Though the coller leaves BJ stuck in his dog form he manages to escape the pound, but barely escapes Doomie, who likes chasing dogs! Lydia summons Beetlejuice to the Outerworld to help him but Delia, who always wanted a dog (never got one because Charles is allergic to them), adopts Beetlejuice under the name Odeious (via how he smells). Her husband's allergy aside, its revealed she never got a dog becuase she smoothers them, and though getting his Neitherworld coller replace with a new one was an advatage, BJ ran off when Delia tried to give him a bath! Lydia insisted to Beetlejuice that he stays a dog a bit longer, and instead make Delia disown him by being a bad dog!
