Harvey scares up record earnings

NEW YORK — Harvey Entertainment on Wednesday posted record third-quarter earnings, with net income of $2.6 million, up from $23,000 in the year-ago quarter, on revenues of $7.1 million, up from $1.3 million in 1996.

The increases stemmed from higher filmed entertainment results pegged to the direct-to-video “Casper, A Spirited Beginning,” released in September, and a cash advance for a 1998 vid sequel, “Casper Meets Wendy.” Harvey’s new consumer products unit also turned in better-than-expected results from licensing of the Harvey cartoon stable.
