What it is: Caspar cartoon

Lonely Caspar goes to the moon because it looks friendly. He is captured by miniature moon men.

It’s a bit ironic that one of my least favorite cartoon franchises is one with guaranteed fantastic content; after all, Caspar is a ghost. Well, I’ll give them credit for varying the routine, at least; this one basically lifts the premise of “Gulliver’s Travels” with Caspar in the Gulliver role. As to be expected, the moon men are too scared of Caspar to make friends with him (though they consider him a monster rather than a ghost) until he saves them from an attacking horde of giant moon tree men. I couldn’t help notice that the character designs for the moon men are very similar to those of the Fleischer GULLIVER’S TRAVELS feature. The extra fantastic content adds a little bit to the cartoon, but it’s still rather weak.
