What it is: Casper cartoon
In his quest to be friendly, Casper tries to help a turkey destined for Thanksgiving dinner to lose weight so he’ll be less appealing. However, the turkey can’t stop eating…
Casper is a little less angsty this time out, but somehow I don’t think a friendship that is dependent on one member losing weight is really not going to work out in the long run, but I’ll leave that for Casper and his therapist to work out. I will admit, though, it’s nice for a change to see Casper lose his temper a bit. I also find it interesting that he is able to find a nice house to live in despite being dead. And I’m still waiting for Casper to figure out that some of his problems end up working out by being able to scare the right people at the right time. At any rate, I find Casper easier to endure when he’s being less tear-jerky as he is here.
