Comin' Up Christmas Time
23 December 2015 | by utgard14See all my reviews

Hanna-Barbera TV special that teams up many of their popular characters. It's Christmas Eve and Casper wants to spend it at home but his friend Hairy Scary makes him go out and search for a new place to haunt. While they're gone, Yogi Bear and friends show up and decide to celebrate Christmas at their house. The ghosts return home to find the group decorating the house for a Christmas party. Casper is excited but Hairy is angry and decides to scare the uninvited guests. There's not much more to this but it should hold a lot of appeal for Hanna-Barbera fans, who will no doubt enjoy seeing all of the characters hanging out together. In addition to Casper, Hairy, Yogi, and Boo Boo, there's Huckleberry Hound, Snagglepuss, Quick Draw McGraw, Augie Doggie, and Doggie Daddy. There's a lame laugh track which is thankfully used sparingly. I'm not the biggest Hanna-Barbera fan so this cartoon didn't do a lot for me. But it is good natured and pleasant with likable characters (except for annoying Hairy Scary). Not a bad way to pass a half-hour if you catch it on television during the holidays.
