Awesome Cartoon
11 March 2005 | by (Vermont, United States) – See all my reviews

This is a really great cartoon! Magoo definitely has done it again! Highlights of this show include: -Because Magoo can't see well enough to read, he always makes it up to fit whatever he thinks is going on. -Magoo can travel back in time just by driving down the road, he can survive on top of an airplane in mid flight, and he can even breathe in outer space. -Magoo's nephew Waldo sounds just like Shaggy. -Magoo's dog McBarker does indeed look a lot like him. This show is really funny! Check your free OnDemand service; you might be able to watch it whenever you want! Sometimes I'll replay one I've already seen just to watch the awesome intro. Some of the stuff he says... you'd have to *see* it to believe it!
