Storyline

Mr. Magoo and his nephew, Waldo, are on safari in Africa with Magoo up to his usual near sighted tricks mistaking alligators for stepping stones and telling jokes to a pack of laughing hyenas. Later, when a lion gets a thorn in its paw, Magoo pulls it from the lion thinking him to be Waldo. This earns him the lion's companionship. But, unfortunately for Waldo, as Magoo mistook a lion for Waldo, he also mistakes Waldo for a lion shooting at him, treeing him, and finally capturing him in a bamboo cage to take him back to America with him.

Enjoyable, if not terribly creative or surprising.

UPA was beginning to hit the wall with Magoo shorts toward the end. The problem with the Magoo series was the inherent limitations of the basic premise. The jokes can be rather predictable and thus the quality of the material has to be extremely good or it doesn't work as well. When they were on, the shorts were great, like Trouble Indemnity or When Magoo Flew. This isn't a bad cartoon by any means. But the jokes are old and a bit marginal, which makes predictability a major liability. Worth watching, but not all that special. Recommended for Magoo fans.
