*** Well, there's also [[LukeIAmYourFather the other option for how Hairy's related to Casper...]] but that seems incredibly unlikely and would be [[UnfortunateImplications a very uncomforting thought]] given how many times Hairy has openly admitted to not liking how unthreatening Casper is.

*** Casper also has a cousin named Spooky who's also got a different-colored nose (albeit Spooky's is black while Hairy's is red) and wears some clothing (Hairy and his bow-tie and Spooky with his hat), so maybe he's Spooky's dad? It's just as unlikely as him being Casper's dad, but then again the Ghostly Trio doesn't look like they'd be related to Casper or Spooky either.

* The other ghosts want Casper to scare people, but he doesn't want to scare nice people. Why don't they just compromise and let him scare only the bad guys?

*** That's intentional. Adults have been taught that ghosts are scary and react accordingly. ChildrenAreInnocent and don't.

**** Casper actually does have parents in early shorts, such as "Casper's Birthday" and "Hide and Shriek." Surprisingly, it is implied that they raised him to be good.

** If ghosts are dead people with unfinished business, then why isn't Casper's father a ghost? He never got around to bringing Casper back to life.
*** One must assume his business was the creation of the Lazarus Machine, which satisfied him enough to pass on.
**** I bet Casper's father is more of a douche than goody-two-shoes Casper gives him credit for.
**** I just thought he was alive and in an asylum.

** Well, somewhere above this one it says that he has parents, so maybe he's a relation on whichever side the Ghostly Trio isn't on.
** I don't think he's related to Hairy. Hairy comes off more as a goofy mentor for Casper with Casper being his sort of MoralityPet.

MoralityPet. The first episode of ''Casper and the Angels'' mentioned that Casper was assigned to his job with Minnie and Maxie, possibly with Hairy as his teacher.

* Casper's "family"... just how many relatives does he have? He has the Ghostly Trio as uncles and Hairy Scary reoccurs in various animated series, but is he related to any of them?
