Casper the Friendly Ghost Wiki

Bill Case is a supporting antagonist of the film Casper: A Spirited Beginning. He is a professional bomber hired by Tim Carson to blow up the Applegate Mansion. He is portrayed by Michael McKean.


Bill Case is an expert bomber who specialized in demolition. He was hired by Tim Carson to take down the Applegate Mansion in hopes of building a Mini Mall to improve the town. In their first meeting, Bill accidentally set Tim's office on fire while trying to inactivate a dynamite cartridge.

Later in the film, he sneaks into the mansion and implants a powerful explosive inside the building in order to blow up the place. This puts Tim's son: Chris Carson's life in danger, after Chris gets locked inside by school bullies.

When Tim asks him to shut down the bomb, he refuses as he believes Tim to be some Master of Disguise imposter, and takes refuge at a treetop near the mansion waiting for the denotation. Just as he was about the detonate, Chris's teacher Sheila Fistergraff crashed her car onto the tree which caused him to trip and land right on to her car.

As he was about to proceed, Tim threw the detonator away. With everything seeming to turn well at first, Bill state that the bomb was set to default, as it will only take a minute to detonate. This forced Tim to break inside the mansion, and get Chris out to safety, leaving Chris's friend, Casper the Friendly Ghost alone to deal with the bomb. As time was almost up, Casper ate the bomb which exploded inside his stomach and saving the mansion leaving Bill in defeat.


Bill Case is shown to have a really obsessive personality, as he enjoys detonating explosives and blowing up buildings. It is also worth noting that he behaves like a typical soldier stereotype, despite his formation of being really clumsy.
