Storyline

At a used car lot, Mr. Magoo is intent on buying a car for his nephew Waldo. He is slick talked into buying an old clunker thanks to a shifty salesman but he drives it off anyway. Unfortunately, the myopic Magoo drives off a pier and under the ocean where he mistakes the various aquatic surroundings such as fish, sunken boats, and seals for other cars, dilapidated mansions, and a horn happy driver respectively.

MAGOO'S PUDDLE JUMPER {Short} (Pete Burness, 1956) ***
25 February 2014 | by (Naxxar, Malta) – See all my reviews

Revisiting the Mr. Magoo character as part of my ongoing Oscar season, I cannot help but marvel at how such an obviously politically incorrect figure was ever not only conceived and executed but accepted so wholeheartedly by both critics and the public at large as to make him a multiple Academy Award winner and an animation icon! This Oscar-winning short sees the near-sighted perennial optimist catching up with the times and purchasing an electric car; accompanied by his hick nephew, he naturally falls foul of a traffic cop and escapes his pursuit by running his car off a bridge into the sea – all the while mistaking the specimen of marine life he encounters as the newest model in various rival (and inferior) automobile brands! Incidentally, the other two cartoon shorts competing against it at the Oscars also emanated from Columbia, including GERALD McBOING! BOING! ON PLANET MOO.
