9 Days Remain Until "Community" Leaves Us: The Countdown Continues with the "Beetlejuice" Easter Egg

I’m going to keep the heat on the “Community” countdown in the hopes that a steady wave of glee mixed with anguish will convince NBC to murder Whitney Cummings and put “Community” back on in its place. If possible, I’m going to run one “Community”-related post each day until December 8th when the beloved Dan Harmon show leaves the air with no scheduled return, its future in doubt. Rumor has it, however, if you whisper “Community, Community, Community” three times, a live-production of the show will show up at your doorstep.

As for today’s clip: It’s a week old, but if you thought “Community” was brilliant before, wait until you see this glorious Easter Egg three-years in the making. As Dan Harmon tweeted, “The Easter egg that took three years to hide. Our show is TOTALLY ACCESSIBLE.”


It’s a doozy, too. I watched it three times before I caught the payoff.

If you missed it, after the third “Beetlejuice,” look through the window behind Annie. Note, too, that each utterance of the word came from a different season.

And that, folks, is the genius of “Community.”
