Product Description

All 81 Original Casper Cartoons Made Between 1945 & 1963 In One Collection!

Casper is the most famous ghost on earth, but unlike his spooky brethren, he doesn’t like to haunt or scare: he spends his time looking to make friends. In the original Paramount cartoons, Casper would often frighten some unsuspecting grown-up while befriending Little Billy or a small animal, but he’d then rescue one of them from a perilous predicament to become a local hero. In the Harvey comics, Casper would explore an enchanted forest, while the antagonizing Ghostly Trio would tease and heckle. Friends like cousin Spooky, Wendy the Good Witch and Nightmare the Ghostly Horse round out Casper’s supporting cast.
In 1945 Casper made his first appearance when Paramount released The Friendly Ghost. Casper reappeared when Paramount released There’s Good Boos To-Night in 1948 and A Haunting We Will Go in 1949. In 1950, as Casper gained tremendous popularity, Paramount expanded the cartoons into an entire television series. Casper quickly became one of the most celebrated cartoon characters in popular culture.
In December of 1952 Harvey became the sole publisher of Casper comic books. Four years later, Harvey acquired the Casper character and went on to publish the Casper line of comic books for more than 40 years. Casper has since starred in the Steven Spielberg–produced Casper feature film, two additional made-for-video films and a top-rated animated television series. See where it all began with this collector’s edition set! This set includes all of the theatrical shorts and the 1963 television series: over 7 hours of spooktacular entertainment!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Casper DVD Set Sept. 21 2011
By Mark Arnold - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
So I received my advanced copy of the "Casper" DVD that I did commentaries and interviews for. Overall, I give the set high marks with some minor quibbles that I had no control over.

On the plus side, the set looks good. There are two slimline case clamshells; one featuring the two theatrical discs and the third disc in its own case features all of the "New Casper Cartoon Show" episodes.

The 20-page full-color booklet looks fantastic and of course, it was written by yours truly, so it is crammed with tons of information including where every episode appears in comic books, when applicable.

The first three Casper cartoons that are now in the public domain are actually featured as bonus features of disc one. There are 10 commentaries strewn throughout. All feature me with three of them with Edmee Reit (widow of Sy), three of them with Bradley Bolke and three of them with Alison Arngrim (daughter of Norma MacMillan).

I first saw the 15+ minute documentary in Oregon and was upset that I looked so "zombie-like", but after re-watching it a second time, it's not too bad, but I still come across as a bit dull in comparison with the animated Alison, who makes the documentary fun!

The commentaries are generally pretty good, considering that I had never done anything like this before, and recorded everything in a marathon 10-hour session in my home.

They DID get the "New Casper Cartoon Show" opening and closing in color which I begged them to do, and got MOST of the individual episode openings where Casper and friends zip in to watch a cartoon in a TV cloud.

Now, for the negatives. Even though I begged them to go back to Paramount to get the original cartoons for the original elements and credits, it just wasn't or couldn't be done. As a result, the Harveytoons opening is used and even "The Harveytoon Show" opening is used in a couple of cases. And on the public domain cartoons, the Paramount logos are used, but in one case the UM&M openings are used.

HOWEVER, if you use that above criteria to NOT buy the set, you will be missing out, because this is the most comprehensive set of Casper cartoons that has ever been issued and probably ever will be issued. It has the ONLY appearance of "The Bored Billionaire" EVER on home video AND is the only set that has all of the Casper cartoons in one place; a feat that will probably not be repeated any time soon.

As a result, you can literally toss out any previous Casper DVD collections, as this definitely takes the place of those sets. The Casper DVD from Shout Factory is due to be released on October 11.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still great after all these years! Oct. 24 2011
By David Pierce - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I was a big fan of Casper growing up and was highly anticipating this release, though I did so with trepidation as it seems there are some child-hood favorites that I re-visited as an adult that lost their magic. Luckily, this was not the case with Casper.

The artwork is absolutely beautiful in the early to mid 50s cartoons and though Casper could be cheesy at times, the cartoons still retain their warmth and happiness. It was fun to see the New Casper Cartoon openings which I remembered from my childhood. I'm really glad the booklet was included chock full of great Casper trivia and history.

I showed my five-year old nephew some of the cartoons and it seems that Casper has found a new fan!

Definitely recommend this to anyone of any age!

I have been looking for all 26 episodes from the 1963 "Casper new cartoon show" for a good 10 years. I love that all 26 are on one dvd. Thank you so much for releasing this!

I can't believe that it's the complete Casper the ghost series on DVD. Shout Factory did a great job on this little gem and it's well worth the price !
