Storyline

Mr. Magoo sets off to go to the movies but goes to an airport by mistake and gets on a plane thinking it to be a theater. Little does Magoo know the man he is sitting next to is actually a thief and when a detective appears on the plane to track the thief down, Magoo thinks it's all part of the movie. After doing some wing walking, Magoo reenters the plane and exposes the thief to the detective. When the plane lands, Magoo remarks that they should have shown a cartoon particularly one with that "delightful near sighted fellow". Written by Matt Yorston <george.y@ns.sympatico.ca>

An Oscar winner and one of the best Magoo shorts they did

This short won the Oscar and probably deserved to. It's an excellent effort and one of the shining moments of the Mister Magoo series of theaterically released shorts. It is hilarious and quite mad and chaotic, even for a Magoo cartoon. Most recommended.
