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.

An Oscar winner and an excellent example of how good use can be made of limited animation

This short, produced by UPA in 1956, won an Oscar, beating out two other UPA productions to do so. UPA used very limited animation and compensated for the limitations in movement with good scripts, careful selection of voices and by making the best use of animation by making it count. The premise of this short is so outlandish, it will remain in your memory for a long while afterwards. The title is a bit of a pun, actually. Most Recommended.
