Carrigan Crittenden (Cathy Moriarty) is eager to get her claws on her dear departed dad's fortune, but discovers at the reading of his will that he... didn't like her very much and only left her a [[HauntedHeadquarters moldy old mansion]]. Upon learning that the house may contain treasure, she drags her long-suffering lawyer Dibbs (Creator/EricIdle) to the Maine coastline, where they find the building is haunted by Casper and his three uncles. Carrigan eventually hires "ghost therapist" Dr. James Harvey (Creator/BillPullman) to get rid of them. He brings along his daughter Kat (a teenage Creator/ChristinaRicci fresh off ''Film/TheAddamsFamily'' films), whose [[BoyMeetsGhoul relationship with Casper]] is most of the movie.

** For the same reasons as above, the Lazarus machine itself.



* ForWantOfANail: Essentially the plot happens because Carrigan was left Whipstaff Manor by her dead father in his will, and it happened to be haunted by Casper and the Ghostly Trio.



** Casper tells Kat that no matter how busy his father was while working in his lab, he would drop everything to play pirates with Casper.



* IncomingHam: During breakfast the Ghostly Trio make their presence known by shaking the room. They then descend from the ceiling while spinning their tails as helicopter blades while loudly humming RideOfTheValkyries

* InfantImmortality: Averted. Casper is revealed to have died when he was twelve. He stayed behind as a ghost so his father wouldn't be lonely.


Added DiffLines:

* PosthumousCharacter: All of the ghosts (obviously), Amelia, Casper's father, and Carrigan's deceased father. Dr. Harvey went on a WildGooseChase with Kat trying to find Amelia, who he thought came back as a ghost. Casper's father built the Lazarus machine that later brings Dr. Harvey back to life. Carrigan's father left her Whipstaff in his will, setting the plot in motion.


Added DiffLines:

* TiedTogetherShoelaceTrip: Casper does this to everyone in Kat's class after she is taunted. When the bell rings at the end of the scene, everyone gets up and immediately falls over.

* CelebrityParadox: A blink if you miss moment, but when Casper is flipping through channels he stumbles upon an episode of one of his own Cartoon's, complete with an old lady reacting in the trademark "A GGGGHOST!!!" All that does is annoy Casper enough to change the channel.
