Totally tubular! Well, I think I speak for everyone when I say, we all saw this coming!

—"Jasper Dies at the End"

For more of Jasper's quotes, see Jasper/Quotes.

Jasper is a former Camp Campbell camper. He makes his unofficial debut in "Camp Campbell Wants YOU!" before his main series debut in "Journey to Spooky Island". It is hinted throughout the later episode that he is actually a ghost.

Appearance

Jasper's appearance partially consists of apparel popular in the 90's. He has olive-colored hair with dark brown eyebrows, he wears a yellow Camp Campbell shirt over a purple flannel longsleeved shirt, blue shorts with a sky-blue triangle pattern, and lavender LA Gear light up shoes with orchid colored laces.

Personality

Jasper is soft-spoken, rather nervous and speaks in outdated lingo. He seems like a follower and when he met Max, Nikki, and Neil, tried to be part of their "gang". According to David's story, he seems to enjoy the camp to a great extent and was proclaimed as the best camper of the Order of the Sparrows and has a generally upbeat and happy attitude. However, his opinion on the camp changes near the end of the episode.

He appears to enjoy company from other campers, especially given that the other visitors to the island are Quartermaster and his friends wanting to do perverse acts. In the special NIGHT OF THE LIVING ILL, it is revealed that Jasper is unable to leave Spooky Island and is cursed to haunt the realm of the living until his corporeal body is able to find peace.

Trivia

  • Jasper first appeared in "Camp Campbell Wants YOU!" along with a young David.
  • Jasper's name is a possible allusion to Casper the Friendly Ghost.
  • Jasper also appears in one of the photos shown at the end of "Camporee".
  • His line, "Don't have a cow man," is possibly a reference to The Simpsons.
  • In "Journey to Spooky Island", Jasper's shoes are different to those in "Jasper Dies at the End", possibly foreshadowing the loss of his LA Gear light up shoe when the bear drags him to the cave.
  • Jasper lacks a shadow for the entirety of his screen time in "Journey to Spooky Island."[1] This seems to have been used as a way to differentiate the dead from the living.
    • On the other hand, in "Jasper Dies at the End", Jasper has a shadow for the entirety of the episode. This may indicate that his death does not occur during the events of David's flashback. Instead, it was his love for Camp Campbell that died at the end of the episode, leaving how he literally died a mystery.
  • It can be assumed that he was killed at Spooky Island as he states in "NIGHT OF THE LIVING ILL" that he is cursed to haunt the island until his corporeal body was to find peace in the living realm.
  • Jasper is seen to have a Pog collection in the same episode, he first mentions about playing Pogs in Journey to Spooky Island.
  • Jasper is the only character that uses such outdated lingo, even though a young Davey and Cameron Campbell are both present in the 90’s era. Davey and Campbell do not remark on Jasper’s choice of words.
