Casper's Haunted Christmas is a 2000 direct-to-video film produced by Harvey Comics and Mainframe Entertainment, based on the character Casper the Friendly Ghost, and was released by Universal Pictures Home Video on October 31, 2000. Unlike its direct-to-video predecessors, this video was completely computer animated. It stars Brendan Ryan Barrett as the voice of Casper. Randy Travis provided original music.

Plot[edit]

Kibosh, the King of Ghosts, decrees that Casper must scare someone before Christmas Day or he will be banished to The Dark for all eternity. To make sure this happens, he confiscates the Ghostly Trio's Scare licenses and flings them to Christmas-influenced town Kriss, Massachusetts where they meet the Jollimore Family. When Casper's good behavior starts to act up, which includes befriending the daughter of the family, Holly, the Ghostly Trio call in Casper's lookalike cousin Spooky and his girlfriend Poil to do the job.
