Community's Three-Year Joke: "Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice" (VIDEO)

By Jen Trolio

Nov 23, 2011

Remember when Community's Abed delivered a baby in the background of Season 2's "The Psychology of Letting Go" and we (read: "the internet") all went bonkers over it? Well, wait until you see this.

The following video includes clips from Season 1's "Communication Studies," Season 2's "Cooperative Calligraphy," and Season 3's "Horror Fiction in Seven Spooky Steps." Beyond that, all you need to know, if you're not already familiar with the seminal 1988 comedy horror film Beetlejuice, is that if you say the titular ghoul's name three times, he appears. Watch closely.

Dang, those guys are good.

    Dan Harmon is a god.

    Obey his wishes and renew ANY SHOW HE WANTS until 2017... at the very least.

    This comedy is ridiculous. Literally. Rock on and please let somebody at NBC give it more episodes. Maybe out of generosity to genius?

    I'm more impressed by the person who recognized it as a three-year joke and found the scenes than by the joke itself.
