    Since I didn't live in the US and only started listening to Howard after 2006, how big was Beetlejuice really? I mean, it's like all of these famous people know who he is and many mention him when they speak to Howard about the show. He also got offered to be in movies and stuff.

    I'll be 32 tomorrow. Most girls I've dated had no clue who Beet was until I showed them and explained who he was. And that goes back before the Sirius days and back in NY where Howard's influence was probably the biggest. I'd have to explain why I'm laughing at a tiny headed man who can't spell "RED" as if was somehow acceptable.

    Outside of regular listeners or E! Show watchers, he was pretty unknown to the general public. People know that Howard always had on retards and midgets, but not THE retarded midget.

    Beet was primarily known in popular culture through his appearances on the E! Show, which has been off the air since 2005.

    Happy Birthday. In my experience women find him disturbing. Probably not a great seduction method.
