Synopsis: Furious that her late father only willed her his gloomy-looking mansion rather than his millions, Carrigan Crittenden is ready to burn the place to the ground when she discovers a map to a treasure hidden in the house. But when she enters the rickety mansion to seek her claim, she is frightened away by a wicked wave of ghosts. Determined to get her hands on this hidden fortune, she hires afterlife therapist Dr. James Harvey to exorcise the ghosts from the mansion. Harvey and his daughter Kat move in, and soon Kat meets Casper, the ghost of a young boy who's "the friendliest ghost you know." But not so friendly are Casper's uncles--Stretch, Fatso and Stinkie--who are determined to drive all "fleshies" away. Ultimately, it is up to Harvey and Kat to help the ghosts cross over to the other side.

What do I usually do when

something stands in my way?

Check those fuses!

Um, are you sure we're not

going a tad overboard here?

Dibs, I have huffed and puffed.

Now I want to rip this place down.

I want my treasure--

People, people, please!

You're sweaty male

construction types!

Dibs, do something.

Charlie, quick, keep runnin'!

Don't look back! Run, Charlie, run!

Wait, wait. They were

just kidding. Honest!

Oh, every time.

All I want's a friend.

Did you ever feel the way

Priscilla Cow felt?

That you'd like to be

completely different?

Almost everybody feels

like that once in a while.

But most of the time, I hope

you can be glad to be yourself.

That's really

something to celebrate.

A g-g-ghost!

More on the Pentagon playboys

as the story unfolds, but now:

Step aside, Sigmund Freud.

Jump back, Joyce Brothers.

It's Dr. James Harvey,

therapist to the dead?

Are you depressed, anxious?

Are you lonely?

Do you need someone to talk to?

No problem,

if you're a ghost.

You can call them ghosts,

if you like, or as I prefer,

the living impaired.

But the bottom line is,

they need help sometimes.

Just like the rest of us.

After the sudden, unexpected

death of his wife Amelia,

Dr. Harvey gave up conventional psychiatry

and, some say, conventional sanity.

Now, along with his loner

daughter, Kat... short for Kathy...

Doc Harvey travels from town to town,

searching for paranoid poltergeists,

scared specters,

the depressed and the dead.

How do you feel about what

your father does for a living?

Could you please

not ask me any questions?

Do you believe in ghosts? Ever seen

one? Does your father ever hurt you?

He's my father.

Could you just talk to us?

Look, it's the first day of school.

I'm sure I'm gonna have homework,
