An excellent start of the "Casper" cartoon series
31 January 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Here is an excellent start of the "Casper" cartoon series - because this is the very first Casper cartoon. I remember watching this short from an old VHS I used to have, but was losted with the first three Casper cartoons ever made.

The story goes with a pudgy Casper running away from home, upset about the ghostly antics of his many siblings. Along the road, Casper tries to make friends; but the all ran away. Poor Casper was so sad and depressed, he tried committing suicide by sitting on the railroad tracks; but forgotten he's already dead and wept. Now at that moment, two children came by and ask Casper if he wants to play with them; of course Casper said yes and it looks like he made two friends. But will it lasted? Watch it and see. So, I love this cartoon! And like I said : An excellent start of the Casper cartoons.
