From Comics to Toons: Casper in The Witching Hour (1963) & Deep Boo Sea (1952)

Here's a pair of Casper shorts, just to prove that the Friendly Ghost is a spirit for all seasons.

First up is "Deep Boo Sea", from 1952. Casper doesn't want to scare, and so he gets a much bigger dunce cap, strengthening his resolve to make mortal friends. After that, in "The Witching Hour", Casper helps his BFF, Wendy, when an evil witch casts a spell on her house.

"Witching Hour" comes from the 1963 New Casper Cartoon Show, and, as such, has more of the familiar Harvey Comics look comics readers were familiar with.

No rating.
