Editorial Reviews

Casper, the most famous ghost on earth, doesnt like to haunt or scare but instead spends his time looking to make friends. Along on his adventures are such memorable supporting characters such as The Ghostly Trio (who endlessly tease Casper) and Wendy the Good Witch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Casper DVD Set September 21, 2011
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still great after all these years! October 24, 2011
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great collection it's a must have !!! January 17, 2012
Format:DVD
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 !

3.0 out of 5 stars Some good and some not so good issues December 9, 2012
By RB
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I was hoping at least to see the full length Harvey Toon open and close titles rather than the butchered made for tv shortened titles. Only one cartoon has the full titles. Would have been fantastic to see the original Paramount titles though. Several of the made for tv cartoons for the New Casper Cartoon Show do have the entire open and close sequences. The biggest plus is seeing the open and close titles to the New Casper Cartoon Show.

Ever since I was a kid, I have always liked cartoons, like the ones here. Casper the Friendly Ghost is one those excellent old cartoons that I could not miss! It is an instant hit and classic with me! No, I am not a kid anymore, but I am a sucker for the old cartoons, especially now that they are on DVD Collection Sets!
