Storyline

In CASPER'S SCARE SCHOOL, Casper has a new assignment: get in touch with his spooky side and start scaring "fleshies" OR ELSE! It's a tough enough challenge for the world's friendliest ghost. But when he goes to Scare School to learn his craft, he uncovers a plot by Alder and Dash, the cruel, two-headed headmaster, to take over the world. With only himself and his misfit pals Ra, a mummy with "unraveling issues," and Mantha, a zombie who can't keep her limbs on, the odds are stacked against him. But what Alder and Dash don't realize is that the power of friendliness is greater than any evil plot, and when friends work together nothing can stop them. Written by Classic Media

Growing Up With Timmy Burton
27 October 2006 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Casper the Friendly Ghost is given the Tim Burton treatment in this computer-animated cartoon with a claymation look. The powers of cuteness and niceness triumph over the old-style order in which ghosts, vampires, mummies and so forth are sent to 'scare school' in order to learn how to terrify 'fleshies'.

It is interesting that in the two decades since Burton's askew vision of horror, as shown most clearly in BEETLEJUICE, EDWARD SCISSORHANDS, and the animated features THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE Christmas and THE CORPSE BRIDE, that view has become mainstream to the extent that Casper the Friendly Ghost can be given the same treatment. However, the result here is viewer-friendly kiddie farce, eked out not with black humor but with puns and 'adults make no sense' jokes. The result is sporadically amusing, and children are likely to be entertained by it. but adults can give it a miss.
