Casper in Mother Gooseland
18 October 2005 | by nostalgicman2004See all my reviews

Once again the world's only friendly ghost desires a friend. But this time Casper gets to journey to Mother Gooseland instead of the real world. There in that magical land he encountered some of the famous nursery rhyme characters and two who really belong to the world of the Brother's Grimm.

This is a nice, pleasant Famous Studios cartoon and while some feel that most of their cartoons were too repetitive in story line(Casper is lonely - Casper scares people/animals - he gets friend - etc.), Famous' flair for quality animation cannot be denied. This cartoon is really good for children and it may be a bit sweet for some adults to sit through.

The only way to see this cartoon now is if "The Harveytoons Show" is currently being syndicated near you or if this cartoon is included in the few professional Casper DVD releases.
