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>

Hilarious! Magoo thinks he's at a 3-D Movie!
21 November 2002 | by (Culver City, CA) – See all my reviews

I recently saw a restored print of this at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences, as it won an Oscar for best Cartoon Short Subject of 1954. (Part of the Facets of the Diamond series). It is apparently not currently available on VHS or DVD -- which is a shame. Apropos of the year it was made (1953 was the BIG year for 3-D movies)nearsighted Magoo goes to a movie. Misreading the one-sheet, he thinks it's a 3-D movie! Then, through a series of blunders (having some nostalgic charm, as they would be impossible in the post 9/11 travel world) he uses his theater ticket to board an airplane -- all the time thinking he is watching a new 3-D movie that even FEELS like you are flying! I'll spare you more of the plot (you get the idea) -- in the hope that it will be re-released one of these days soon! It hasn't lost the ability to keep you laughing, almost half a century after it was made!
