A Haunting We Will Go is probably the one with the UM&M titles so I'm not expecting better quality.

Hey guys, I finally got around to reading the commentary about this Casper release. Despite the title issue, all of the cartoons look really sharp. The three public domain cartoons are slightly shaky, but it seems that they got the best prints they could find, barring striking a new print from the original negatives which may actually no longer exist for these three.

"The New Casper Cartoon Show" episodes look great although there are a few minor blotches here and there especially on the opening and closing and the episode called "The Bored Billionaire" since that has never been released to home video in any form before.

Overall, high marks unless you are a credits purist. I am, but I can live, because it is the only set to get all 81 Casper cartoons in one place. There's no music or vocal rerecording, and the images are generally very, very sharp.

Screen shots please!

Is anyone able to find this set on store shelves or is it online purchase only?
