Storyline

A bloodhound has been given orders to track an escaped criminal. The bloodhound just happens to be persuing that criminal who decides to hide from the mutt at Mr. Magoo's house. Magoo, meanwhile, is making plans for his fishing trip with his friend, Ralph, over the phone. When the hound knocks at Magoo's door, Magoo mistakes the dog to be Ralph and gets his fishing gear ready although the dog is more interested in capturing the criminal then going fishing and tries to convince Mr. Magoo there is a convict hiding in his house. What's worse, when Ralph really does show up, Magoo mistakes him for the criminal! Written by Matt Yorston <georgey@atcon.com>

Magoo, an escaped convict and a bloodhound

This is a Magoo short from the UPA Studios. There will be mild spoilers ahead:

A bloodhound is pursuing an escaped convict, who winds up hiding at Magoo's place, with the expected comic results. Magoo is expecting a friend to come by to go on a fishing trip.

The typical mistakes due to poor vision happen, with drapes entering into the fun and the bloodhound pretty much wondering just what in the world is going on in this crazy place.

Ultimately, the convict is captured and the good guys win. All in all, it's a decent Magoo short. Magoo is a one note character and the quality of the shorts depends on the story and the writing. This one's not bad.

This short, along with all the other Magoo theatrical shorts, is now available on DVD. The DVD collection is excellent and well worth getting. Recommended.
