I absolutely adored the 1995 film and was very excited that there was going to be an animated version. This cartoon was made by many of the same people who worked on the movie, and it showed. Now, I'm an old lady, and I grew up on the classic Harvey cartoons; but I found this version of the Casper cartoon a refreshing change. How cleverly they integrated some of the classic supporting characters! The Trio were some of my favorite characters growing up, and ordinarily I might be miffed at them being altered so drastically - but I wasn't. The new Trio are now also among my favorite animated characters of all time, alongside the old. This show aired while I was in college and I was unable to catch even half of the episodes. I wish they would re-air it, so I could actually see it. I have all 6 of the commercially-released tapes and it is nowhere near enough!
