Casper

Question: What was the treasure? Because Casper says its just his baseball bat and glove, but then what does the note at the beginning mean that Carrigan and Dibbs find when the deed is thrown in the fire? Because it talks of treasure but its really only a baseball.

Answer: It was not Casper (now the ghost of a 12 yr old boy) who wrote that there was a hidden treasure at Whipstaff Manor. It was Casper's father, Mr. Mcfadden. The treasure in the box is an autographed baseball which used to belong to Casper, before he got sick and died. Mr. McFadden missed his young son Casper, so he invented a machine that can bring a ghost back to life. He considered Casper's baseball a treasure, because to him it is the greatest treasure there is - the baseball that belonged to his 12 yr old son before he died.

Question: How exactly did Casper die? I know he said something about it getting too cold out and him getting very sick but they never make it quite clear. Is it hypothermia?

Answer: A couple of theories circling around the internet is that Casper's uncle's died from eating disorders.

Question: Why didn't Casper cross over after the death of his father?

Answer: Because Casper's unfinished business is being a kid and having fun. His treatment by his uncles prevented him crossing over as he wasn't having fun. He got to act like a normal teenager when Kat brought him back.

Continuity mistake: When Dr. Harvey sees his dead wife, Amelia, for the first time as a ghost, he talks to her half way up the staircase in the manor while the party is going on. The camera changes angles a few times from the side of their heads, to Amelia's view of Dr. Harvey. In each different camera angle, his hair changes place, from the side of his head, it slips down in front of his face.

Trivia: The interior of Whipstaff was built at Universal Studios. Early in production there were several moderate earthquakes in the Los Angeles area and many of the large cracks that appear on the walls, etc. were real.
