... though Grown-Ups fight over Him with Fright, the Children All Love Him So...
"CASPER The Friendly Dead-Anguished-Spirit-Of-Say-A-Five-Year-Old-Maybe?"
Man, that's hard to rhyme. Must be why they stuck with "ghost." I know I over think things, but Casper would have had to have been a dead child in order for his ghost to be stuck wandering the Earth in search of friends instead of walking into the "light" or whatever and moving on. Makes the whole cartoon series kinda ghoulish in hindsight.
The image above is from an early rendering of every child's favorite dead playmate before Hollywood got ahold of him and he was forced to diet.
