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>

Myopic midair mayhem!
7 October 2000 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Magoo goes off to the movies, but makes a wrong turn and ends up on a plane, in the midst of a cops and robbers plot he inadvertently foils. This one is above the average Mr. Magoo cartoon, because it has several secondary characters with good lines. My favorite is when the detective says to the stewardess, "I'm looking for a man", and she shoots back with a deadpan, "Me too." The cops and robbers plot is all done in stylized, almost noir fashion. Even the bumbling Magoo bits are funnier than usual, as when he appears in the window of the cockpit. And that end line about "Have you got any cartoons with that short nearsighted fellow?" exhibit a self-referential tongue in cheek that sets this one above your average Magoo.
