Not a Masterpiece but It's Fun Seeing the Characters Together
20 December 2012 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

Casper's First Christmas (1979)

*** (out of 4)

Casper and Hairy Scary leave their old, dark house for a few and while they're gone Yogi Bear, Boo Boo, Huckleberry Hound and various others move in. When the ghosts return Hairy wants to scare the group while Casper wants to become friends. CASPER'S FIRST Christmas certainly isn't a masterpiece and it contains a pretty weak story but it's still quite a bit of fun seeing all the Hanna-Barbera gang in one film together. I think the best part of the movie is actually its animation, which is what you'd expect from the company. I really liked how dark the film was early on and when it finally lights up towards the end, you get a great sense of Christmas. I thought the Casper character was put to good use here and I liked how he wanted to experience Christmas for the first time with friends. The entire subplot of why Hairy is so unhappy doesn't really pay off in a big way but it's decent enough. Fans of these characters will certainly enjoy seeing all of them together and with the short running time it's really a no-brainer.
