By 1961, Paramount had sold off Casper to Harvey Comics and ended his popular cartoon series.
Obviously, someone at Paramount regretted the decision. How else can you explain Goodie the Gremlin, a thinly disguised redesign of Casper? Aside from Goodie's pointed ears, the main differences between him and Casper are that Goodie is green and wants to do good deeds instead of "making friends." The rip-off alone would make it less than desirable, but the animation is severely limited, and the gags and story are weak. Like Casper, Goodie seems aimed at the very young, but the story is resolved by getting arguing neighbors drunk.
