Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this entertaining animated TV movie contains some mildly scary scenes including a scene in which ghosts chase screaming human children and turn them into stone. Ghosts also play tricks on humans and make mischief by breaking things and creating general -- but brief -- mayhem. Casper breaks some rules and lies to his school headmaster, but his overwhelming innocence compensates for any wrongdoing. Two minor characters are stereotypical dumb cheerleaders, and two characters are referred to as fat.
A hint of flirting between a bad vampire boy and giggly skeleton girls.
Ghosts chase scared humans -- adults and kids (who scream) -- and in one scene turn them to stone.
Casper is the epitome of a kind, supportive friend. His uncles and other creatures scare, tease, and paralyze humans and other creatures. Lessons include self-acceptance, loyalty, standing up for others, being a good friend. Some sexist stereotyping. Jokes made at a blind pirate's expense.
