According to some sources
Casper McFadden the Friendly Ghost was created by
Seymour Reit and Joe Oriolo,
yet exactly 20 years prior to their first book in 1939
Jimmy Murphy created the Comic Strip series of
Toots and Casper back in 1919.
Toots and Casper was about a wife and a husband.
The ironic part of it all was during Jimmy Murphy’s illness
near the end of his run of creating the series
there was prompting of recycling of earlier strips
and hiring ghost artists.
Later he was turned into a ghost character.
