* DarkerAndEdgier: Compared to the comic it's based off of. The movie doesn't pull any punches and pretty much tells you, that every ghost at least died of something. Even showing how they come to be by having [[spoiler: Dr. Harvey's and Carrigan's deaths being shown.]] Casper, while a [[NiceGuy nice ghost]], has the most tragic death story of them all and such tragedy is what compels him to stay and be the friendly ghost we know and love. To top it off, all of this was in a PG movie while most of the humor, swearing and scary scenes are barely leaning towards PG-13.

* AllForNothing: The "treasure" Carrigan tries so hard to find turns out to be [[spoiler: a baseball glove and ball signed by Casper's favorite player.]]
** That's debatable - Carrigan crossed over before she even found out. It's really only 'nothing' to Kat, who wasn't looking for it.

* AdaptationExpansion: Apart from the characters of Casper and the Ghostly Trio, the story is original. The ghosts themselves are tweaked, with Casper becoming a teen and the Trio [[RelatedInTheAdaptation stated to be his uncles]] instead of just three older ghosts he lived with.

* CaliforniaDoubling: Friendship, Maine, the setting of the film, is a real place, but none of the movie was shot there. The downtown scenes were filmed in the more touristy Rockport, Maine, while most of the movie, including all the scenes involving Whipstaff, were filmed in California.
