The New Casper Cartoon Show

Show Summary

The New Casper Cartoon Show was a Saturday morning cartoon show that ran on ABC from 1963 to 1969. It starred the famous friendly ghost Casper. Casper first appeared in his own cartoon shorts made for theaters in the 40's and 50's by Famous Studios. Many of these theater shorts later appeared on TV from 1959 to 1961 as part of the Sunday cartoon series "Matty's Funday Funnies" on ABC. On "The New Casper Cartoon Show", Casper appeared in newly made-for-TV cartoon shorts. Appearing in the Casper shorts were his supporting cast members: Wendy the Good Little Witch; Spooky, Casper's ghostly practical joking cousin; Nightmare the Galloping Ghost Horse; and The Ghostly Trio, Casper's fiesty ghostly roommates who constantly critized Casper for being friendly and not scary.

Other shorts on the show were films that were originally made for theaters by Paramount Cartoon Studios. These shorts were called "Modern Madcaps". Casper had 2 shorts per show and one "Modern Madcap" in-between along with bumpers between each short and a next week's promo segment. In the Fall of 1969, the show was retitled, "The New Adventures Of Casper", but then the show was cancelled in December of that year. On the TV show, Casper's voice was provided by veteran cartoon voice actor Norma McMillan. Animator Seymour Knietel, who directed most of Casper's theater shorts, also directed this TV series.moreless

    I first remembered watching this when repeats were shown in the 1980's. In syndication, they rarely showed the opening and closing theme songs to "The New Casper Cartoon Show", they mostly showed the shorts that came from the show. What I liked the most was the opening and closings to the individual Casper shorts where you see all of Casper's cast members. When I was finally able to see the opening and closing to the entire show, I thought they were great. Although many of the Casper made-for-TV shorts were a little bland, but I think that the themes to the show and the individual shorts made me like this show the most.moreless
