Synopsis by Mark Deming
Looking for Christmas spirit? Well, how about a spirit celebrating Christmas? That's the star attraction in this computer-animated story for the entire family. The holiday season has arrived, and Casper the Friendly Ghost (voice of Brendon Ryan Barrett) is looking forward to celebrating Christmas. But it turns out that Kibosh, the ruler of the ghost's world, has some bad news for Casper -- he hasn't been scaring enough people lately, and unless he can put a fright into someone on Christmas Eve, he'll be exiled to the land of the wicked ghosts. Casper is sent to the village of Chrismassachusetts and tries to frighten someone, but try as he might, Casper is too goodhearted to scare anyone on Christmas Eve. However, his friends the Ghostly Trio are looking after him, and when they see what sort of trouble Casper is having, they talk his cousin Spooky into frightening someone for him. Top-selling country music star Randy Travis contributes a new song to the soundtrack. This direct-to-video release was produced under the title Casper's a Merry Scary Christmas.
