Montgomery headed for a meeting with wealthy investors to solicit millions for a corporate acquisition, he brought along some heavyweight celebrity friends--Casper the Friendly Ghost, Richie Rich and Baby Huey. By introducing the familiar cartoon characters to the investors, Montgomery hoped to interest them in his bid for Harvey Publications, a New York-based publisher of comic books including those of Casper, Richie and Huey.

Bryan and Lisa Harvey remember clearly the first time they peered at a picture of their daughter's chromosomes, photographed under a microscope. Before their eyes was the reason that Whitney, a happy little girl who will turn 5 next week, is never expected to talk, has suffered from seizures and would walk straight into a swimming pool if no one were there to stop her. "It was like a hairline fracture in chromosome No. 15," Lisa said. "There it was," said Bryan, the Angels' top relief pitcher.

Back from years in comic book limbo, the bad guys in "Richie Rich" still have German accents and the bunny rabbit in "Casper" still begins his sentences with "gosh." Harvey Publications, publisher of these and other comic classics, have gone back to the presses after a four-year hiatus. "We hope to regain our market position very soon," said Alice Harvey Eigner, president of Harvey Publications.

Haunted by an image that appeared in newspaper ads throughout the country, the owner of the copyright to Casper the Friendly Ghost filed a suit in 1984 claiming that the logo in advertisements for Columbia Pictures' "Ghostbusters" infringed on its rights to a Casper character called "Fatso." A U.S. district court judge in 1986 threw out the $50-million suit--filed by New York-based Harvey Publications--ruling that there are "limited ways" to draw a cartoon ghost.
