Casper's Haunted Christmas is a 2000 direct-to-video film produced by Harvey Comics and Mainframe Entertainment, based on the character Casper the Friendly Ghost, and was released by Universal Studios Home Video on October 31, 2000 (Halloween). Unlike either its theatrical or two direct-to-video predecessors, which combined live action and computer animation, the film was fully computer animated. It stars Brendon Ryan Barrett (who previously starred in Casper: A Spirited Beginning as a different character) as the voice of the title character. Randy Travis provided original music.

Five years after its video release, the special aired on Cartoon Network on December 1, 2005.


Kibosh, the perfidious King of Ghosts, decrees that Casper must scare someone before Christmas Day or he will be banished to The Dark, together with his uncles for all eternity. To make sure this happens, he confiscates the Ghostly Trio's Scare licenses and flings them to the Christmas-influenced town Kriss, Massachusetts where they meet the Jollimore Family. When Casper's good behavior starts to act up, which includes befriending the daughter of the family, Holly, the Ghostly Trio call in Casper's lookalike cousin Spooky and his girlfriend Poil to do the job.
