The NEW Casper is the family-values, light-side, white-duck : He is "Donald Duck"!!
26 December 2010 | by (Queenstown, Tasmania, Australia) – See all my reviews

I have to give this version of Casper full marks for great technical proficiency - but that is all!

This Caspar is awful!!! He is light side - all the characters in the Scare School are authoritarian, light side,family values real-world demons. And so is Casper!

In the original series, Casper was not an adult personality and the other supernatural characters were not family-values people! Casper was a real,supernatural being, innocent and joyful - an anima-like persona!

But in this version, Casper is an adult-male persona - and therefore corrupted(learned adult behaviour is the corruption of supernatural innocence!):The difference is so plain to see ...that the whole idea has been hijacked by patronizing, patriarchal, authoritarian writers and animators who are devoid of any idea of what the dark side is, or else have been enslaved into doing the opposite of what their creative talents, if they have any, should be prompting them to do!

The real evil is in family values, in Disney, in the old and corrupt who run and police and dominate society - authority figures; and these corrupt well-adjusted alphas make up the inhabitants of Scare School anti-society, while the "fleshies" are relatively non-authoritarian and sometimes even real.

This is a reversal of reality! The writers, who are family-values oriented, see themselves as "the good people", when in fact, they are the soul-less demons in authority who define what "good" is - namely obeying the norm of corruption, and obeying laws without questioning authority figures, and, conforming to anti-societies' evil values.

Warner Brothers was the antithesis of Disney's inane family-values fatherly "White Duck" - WB had a female-persona, victimized "black duck", who was real, and matriarchal.He was utterly powerless!

This is the difference between the two Casper's. The original Casper was real, sincere, female-persona,supernatural and anima-like, victimised (like Daffy Duck), and real.

The new Casper is fatherly, family-values, patriarchal, in control and authority, well-adjusted to real-evil anti-society's expectations (here portrayed as zombies and vampires - how true, since family values people do not know who they are in reality - they are the living dead, the walking dead and suckers) - all of which corresponds to the light-side "white duck", Donald Duck! And "Donald Duck, 2009" just about sums up what I think of Casper the well-adjusted ghost! This is pathetic! It is fake and 'pour soi', inauthentic, conservative, family values, light-side technical wizardry without a soul!

All of the technical expertise is utterly wasted on this garbage because it is trite and devoid of joy and humanity. Go back and see the original Casper of "Casper the Friendly Ghost", who was so misunderstood - because he was innocently-real. And Wendy the good little witch, and her house and furniture, which all had personality and feelings, unlike this bunch of born-old-and-grey 21st Century U.S. kids-with-devil's-horns demons who play the parts in this FAKE AS FAKE can BE, boring, cardboardy, Casper series!
