Lydia watches a cheesy monster cowboy movie and then the film is inturrupted by Beetlejuice who offerse Lydia to go to the actual wild west. Lydia says Beetlejuice's name and she goes to Tombstone, Scarizona. Beetlejuice and Lydia head into town where the people select Beetlejuice as their sheriff because a bovine version of Billy the Kid, Bully the Crud is coming at high noon to fight the sheriff. Bully arrives and Beetlejuice is petrified by him to fight, forcing him to Boot Hill and only his horse Nags has to encourage him. To make matters worse, Bully falls in love with Lydia and tries to force her to marry him. Beetlejuice believes that Lydia can take care of herself, but as the hours go by, he gets worried and uses a crystal ball to look into the future. What he sees horrifies him: Bully and Lydia married with five little bulls. Beetlejuice stops the wedding and has a showdown with Bully resulting with him winning by pouring barbaque sauce all over the cow bandit. Beetlejuice quits his job as sherriff because it's "ruining his good boots". During the exit through the sunset scene, Beetlejuice and his horse Nags bicker all the way out of town.
- The character "Bully the Crud" is a pun-on legendary westerner "Billy the Kid"
- The word "Scarizona" is a pun-on "Scare" and "Arizona".
- This is the second time Lydia almost gets married to someone, just like the first was with Beetlejuice in his own live-action film in 1988.
