Episodes in this thorough collection may not come from Casper's golden years (the '60s), but from the late '70s, when the series was initially revived. Episodes include Casper Saves Halloween, which features a favorite Halloween concept for the Friendly Ghost--he can go out among the humans who might believe he's just in costume. There's a group of lonely orphans, kindly rich people, and Casper's nasty ghost associates to contend with, but friendship, loyalty, and affection win out in the end. Other episodes (several of which take place in outer space) include "Love at First Fright," "The Impossible Scream," "Something's Fishy," "Space Circus," "Prehistoric Hi-Jinx," and "Count Fatula." These episodes are ideal for parents hosting a kiddy party for Halloween or for those who prefer to entertain inside rather than let their little goblins out. They're not too scary, they offer up a none-too-subtle message, and the adults in the home may harbor fond memories of their own childhood 'toons via Casper. The 1995 live-action version (and its sequel) reintroduced audiences to Casper, so it's likely that there'll be interest in this collection not only for Halloween--maybe for spooky sleepovers as well? Ages 6 and older. --N.F. MendozaFrom the Back Cover:
Join "the friendliest ghost you know" for high-spirited afterlife antics in these 7 hauntingly hilarious animated adventures!
Watch Casper come to the rescue in Casper Saves Halloween when his arch enemy tries to destroy his favorite holiday! Then, it's Love at First Fright when Casper's ghostly buddy Harry Scary develops an ectoplasmic affection for beautiful superstar Zsa Zsa Amour. Next, Casper's festive plans for Harry's 1,000th birthday are rudely interrupted when super-crook Muscles McSnort crashes the party in The Impossible Scream.
Then, Casper reels in some seal-nappers in Something's Fishy, and snares a sneaky smuggler on an outing to the Space Circus. Finally, a scientist's time machine zaps Casper and Harry back to the age of dinosaurs for some Prehistoric Hi-Jinx and a portly vampire causes quite a flap for our two see-through heroes in the totally batty tale of Count Fatula!
