Casper the Friendly Ghost first appeared in 1945 when Paramount released three theatrical shorts. He ultimately became one of the Studio’s biggest animated stars. In 1950, at the height of his fame, Paramount expanded the cartoons into a successful TV series. In 1952, Harvey Comics became the publisher of Casper comic books and went on to publish them for more than 40 years.”
