Storyline

Casper emerges from a subway station, following a crowd of scared strangers. He encounters a man saying "see the wonders of the moon for ten cents," and offering a sight through a telescope. Casper scares the man away, then uses the telescope to see the moon. He then flies to the moon for a visit. Casper lands on the moon, disappointed to find no man on the moon. He lies down to nap, then tiny moon men emerge from holes. They capture Casper, like Lilliputians did to Gulliver, then place him in a cage on wheels, in which they tow him to the Ruler of the Moon, King Luna. The King addresses Casper as a monster, and treats him as an enemy. Casper playfully picks up King Luna, and the king has him placed in the royal dungeon. A dejected Casper is imprisoned. Then animated trees attack the city of the moon men. The moon men defend their fortified city with flaming missiles. The tree monsters fight back with water, then break through the town walls. When the fight seems lost to the tree ... Written by veloc <velo_00@yahoo.com>

I'm Sure 3-D Would Have Made This A Lot Better
28 October 2007 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

Casper sees "the man in the moon" and he looks friendly, so he flies up there to meet him. When he gets there, he discovers the moon is just a bunch of rocks and craters. "Wow," I am thinking, "the writers of this cartoon are way ahead of everyone since that's exactly correct as we found out for sure decades later." However, as a tired Casper takes a nap, a bunch of little men spot him and capture him, a la "Gulliver's Travels," except they take the "giant" in a crate When posting this review, I noticed under "trivia" that the king in this movie, "King Bomba," was in Gulliver's Travels so I guess my analogy was right on.

The story, as most Casper stories tended to be, is geared strictly for little kids. I understand this was made in 3-D which would have made it fun for adults to view, too, but I only saw it on a cheap DVD where the picture was decent but not noteworthy, and obviously not in 3-D. I swear I recognize some of the adult voices in here but the "cast" is not listed in on the title page.

I would love to have seen this in 3-D. I'm sure it would have elevated my rating considerably. Otherwise, this is strictly for very young kids.
