Trivia

Contrary to popular belief, Mr. Magoo is not blind; he is nearsighted.
Leslie Nielsen reportedly was the first choice for the role of Mr. Magoo.
Judging from unused footage seen in behind-the-scenes specials (and in the trailer), the opening animated sequence was also shot in live-action but never used.
Screenings of this movie were met with protests by the blind and their advocates in theaters across the USA. For this reason, and the bad reviews, it was rushed into video format. Even before it was released, the British Federation of the Blind petitioned the British Board of Film Classification to ban the movie as it would "bring ridicule upon blind and partially sighted people". The petition was thrown out.
