About Adam and Barbara Maitland
Please find out more about Adam and Barbara Maitland and other Beetlejuice characters on these sites: As portrayed by Tim Burton in the 1988 movie Beetlejuice, Barbara and her husband Adam Maitland are simple people who would rather stay at home and decorate their Victorian house instead of traveling. However, during a routine drive from town, Barbara swerves to avoid a dog, killing the couple both. As soon as they learn that they have passed away, they learn their house has been sold to new owners, the Deetz family. With their newly discovered shapeshifting abilities, Adam and Barbara try to scare the new owners out of their house, but to no avail.
Michael Keaton’s Beetlejuice, who plays the Deetz family’s consultant, makes things interesting. “Bio-exorcist” doesn’t perform as expected due to his wild and obnoxious nature. Not just for Halloween, but any season! Hilarity ensues! A huge critical and commercial success, Beetlejuice is still a well-loved film over 30 years later. Tim Burton also produced an animated television series following the movie.
