User Reviews

 
Imagine-Mister Magoo as baby-sitter!

This short was nominated for an Oscar and is one of the better Magoo cartoons produced by UPA for theatrical release. A typical Magoo short, it places Magoo in a situation that makes his nearsightedness an issue and a series of comical circumstances arising from that shortcoming ensues. The Magoo cartoons have lately been targeted as being insensitive and degrading. Somewhere along the way we've lost our senses of perspective and humor. I'm glad to see some of the Magoos in print. Recommended.
