Casper (1995)[]

The 1995 animated/live action hybrid film Casper is notable for having many deleted scenes that have never seen the light of day. The only officially released scene to this day has been the unfinished deleted musical number “Lucky Enough To Be A Ghost” which has been included as a bonus feature on the DVD. The rest of the scenes however have yet to be released and have only been featured in trailers for the film, the script, and storybooks released around the time of the film’s debut.
