Early life and health
Beetlejuice was born with the medical condition microcephaly – dwarfism – which is the cause behind his intellectual disability and his small head and body. He was raised in Jersey City alongside his five siblings by their mother Laura ‘Lillie’ Green, and their father Christopher Palid; nothing is known about Beetlejuice’s family, as they prefer to be left out of media.
