D. J. David B. Spins Comics-Tunes: Casper the Friendly Ghost Sung by…Elvis!?!

Never before or since has the ghost of a dead child (Richie Rich?) been so fun-loving and popular as Casper the Friendly Ghost. You’d think the subject of being haunted by a little boy would be morbid or tragic. Just shows how much I know!


(click for a closer look)

Casper has a long history in comic books as well as in animated cartoons, of course. This raises the question, “Should the Arf blog limit itself to printed cartoons, or are animated cartoons still within the definition of “The Unholy Marriage of Art and Comics?”

Either way, in honor of the anniversary of the death of Elvis Presley, we’re presenting this amusing novelty record, from one friendly ghost to another.


(if no bar appears please click here to listen)

By the way, that’s not really Elvis singing. The vocals are credited to Jess Harnell. (Perhaps that’s the name Elvis is using these days.)

    I’ve heard of ghost writing but not ghost singing–go Elvis!

  5. DJ David B. Says:

    That raises an interesting idea. If Casper is a kid ghost and not the spirit of a deceased boy, he must be the offspring of mom and dad ghosts which means THERE’S SEX AFTER DEATH. Hoo-ha! I can’t wait.
