When the Maitlands are scrambling to get back to the attic door and away from the sandworm, a far shot shows the white door hovering in space some distance above the sand. But in the next closeup, the Maitlands are almost even with the door while standing.

When Disney bought the rights to Beetlejuice to air on the Disney Channel, they cut out several scenes including: The scene of a second Sandworm head emerging from the mouth of another one. In the original version, when Adam and Barbara leave the model, Beetlejuice kicks over a model tree, screams "Nice fucking model!" and then makes honking sounds while he grabs his crotch. In the Disney version, an alternate take is used where he kicks over the tree, spits, and stares up at Adam and Barbara. Several shots of Beetlejuice attacking the Deitz family as a snake were removed. The scene where the receptionist in the afterlife waiting room reveals she killed herself was removed. A scene during the dance number where the Deitz's all moon each other was also removed.
