Magoo possesses an indomitable spirit that will not permit him to be defeated (Here there be spoilers)!
2 September 2002 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

I rarely divulge details that might spoil a viewers' enjoyment of a particular film, but with this one, I would find it virtually impossible to fairly discuss its virtues without going into detail. You have thus been warned.

Mr. Magoo has mistaken a walrus for a human friend and various sight gags are shown in typical Magoo fashion. Atypically, however, circumstances force Magoo to confront his error and by extension, his poor eyesight. Magoo manages to turn a crushing blow into a triumph and thus saves the day for the good guys (of which he is most certainly one) and a good time is had by all. The Magoo character has engendered a good deal of anger because many make a fundamental error: they see Magoo as making fun of the blind. What they overlook is that despite his poor vision, Magoo goes about his life and not only survives, but perseveres. The animators aren't making fun of Magoo, but lauding him. Magoo isn't the myopic one; his detractors are. Excellent cartoon. Well worth the trouble to seek out and find. Most highly recommended.
