10 Things You Totally Forgot About Casper, The Friendly Ghost

- Page 1

He's been haunting pop culture since the the '90s live-action movie, Casper, but your favorite friendly ghost still has some surprises in store for you. No matter how many times you've re-watched Casper over the years, there are some plot points you may have overlooked, or tried to bury in your mind, for good reason.

I'm sure next time you turn this classic '90s movie on, all these memories will come flooding back!

1. Kat's Class Volunteers Her House For Their Halloween Party

I always remember Kat volunteering to host the part to upstage the popular girl, but no I was wrong. Some kid volunteers her haunted house as a great place for the dance. Did no one think of asking her parents? Maybe she didn't want to have a bunch of kids in her house right after she moved in.

2. This Isn't Kat's First Time Moving

Her father is seeking out the ghost of his wife, so it explains by Dr. Harvey chose to land them in this strange house. The fact that journalists interview Kat on her first day of school and describe her as Dr. Harvey's "longer daughter" is just too much.

3. There's a Ghostbusters Cameo!

If you blink you may have missed it the first ten times you've seen this movie, but he's there, ready to bust some ghosts. But, Casper's three eccentric uncles somehow have managed to spook out Ray Stantz.

4. Casper is Actually Creepy In a Way Most Ghost Movies Aren't

No, its not the haunting or the appearing anywhere at anytime that has you spooked, it's the fact that an 8-year-old girl has a ghost "friend" who watches her when she is sleeping and whispering "Can I keep you?". That is more disturbing than any other ghost movie that I have seen.

5. Can Casper Actually Interact With The World, or Not?

Throughout the movie Casper can become all airy, or interact with objects. It's as though he can somehow turn it on or off. Weird.

It gets weirder from here.

It's Been Over 20 Years Since 'Space Jam' Came Out, But What Ever Happened To The Monstars?

Since the Looney Tunes started, they have been able to bring together the entire world with their hilarious cartoons. Whether we were watching Bugs give a haircut, Wile E. Coyote chase the Roadrunner, or Sylvester go after Tweety, there were infinite possibilities and all were entertaining. But one story really beat out the rest as the most memorable, and that was Space Jam. You might not think that a silly 90s movie about basketball could top decades of cartoons, but guess what, it was pretty freakin' awesome if you ask me. Warner BrosSpace Jam came out in 1996 and it

20 Movies From The 90s That Still Make You Sob Uncontrollably

Watching movies was the ultimate treat on a weekend. Our parents would let us help them pick out the best movies possible at Blockbuster and we would watch it all together. But as we got older, we didn't want to just rent whatever cartoon had come out that week. We wanted to watch something new and exciting. We wanted our parents to think of us as young adults now. We weren't children, we were capable of understanding complicated emotions. The problem was, we were not ready for the levels of emotion these movies gave us. I remember the first movie


'Free Willy' Came Out 25 Years Ago, But Where Is The Star Of The Movie Now?

Watching Free Willy as a kid made us all appreciate whales a little bit more than we did. We didn't realize what it was really like for the animals in those amusement parks, and while it was a fictional story, it was sad to see. But luckily, Jesse was there to stop the evil plan that was put in place to drain Willy's tank so the amusement park owners could claim the $1 million insurance money. Jesse helps Willy escape, of course by using a super high jump that of course we all remember as the most iconic scene of


'A League Of Their Own' Is Coming To TV And We're Hoping It's A Home Run

We all learned that there was "no crying in baseball," but apparently there is a lot of laughter, because A League of Their Own is coming back, but this time as a half-hour sitcom! The classic 90s movie about the baseball league that was created during the second World War stole audience's hearts, and they are hoping that there are still a few home run stories to tell with a new show. It's kind of a reboot, so I get it if you're hesitant, but even if you don't like the new show, there's always the original movie to go
