Wendy's Un-Spook-Tacular debut
19 April 2012 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

As a kid, I loved the Harvey Comics version of Casper, with its enchanted forest setting and big supporting cast led by his girlfriend Wendy, the Good Little Witch.

I later was thrilled to find out that Casper starred in cartoons, but was a little let down that they generally omitted the enchanted forest and its denizens.

So you can imagine how happy I was to catch this cartoon, which starts with Casper and Spooky (my favorite Harvey character, even more than Casper), and then introduces Wendy! After that, however, it was downhill. I actually didn't mind that Spooky plays the bad guy here; Casper needed a foil, and even Spooky's solo comic book adventures made it clear he could be troublemaker.

Wendy, however is ill served in this, her animated debut. First her hair seems a little different. That isn't so bad in itself, but as soon as she goes on a date with Casper at the beach, she changes into a swimsuit and becomes completely unrecognizable. To make it worse, she doesn't use even a lick of magic.

The formulaic plot has Spooky sabotaging her day at the beach, and making poor Casper his fall guy, but there are no remarkable gags, and neither Casper not Wendy ever turns the tables on Spooky. That's left up to Wendy's roommate Hazel, who puts Spooky into place with broomstick-powered baseball skills.

So, Casper finally gets to share the spotlight with two of his supporting characters, only to have all three of them upstaged by a one-shot witch.
