The Double R Ranch featured "The King of the Cowboys" Roy, his "Smartest Horse in the Movies" Trigger, "Queen of the West" Dale, her horse Buttermilk, their dog Bullet, and even Pat's jeep, Nellybelle.
Even though the cartoons were cranked out at a rushed pace and focused a lot on Mr. Magoo's nearsightedness, I thought the cartoons were so funny as well as non-violent. The key to the show's success was the outstanding voice work of Jim Backus as the title character. I read in another source that a lot of his lines were ad-libbed and that's what I felt contributed to the zaniness of the cartoons.
The one cartoon I remember was when Magoo was going bowling and instead he wandered into a bottle factory instead of a bowling alley. Let's not overlooked the supporting players such as youngsters Wheeler and Dealer, Mother Magoo (the only character to refer to him by his given name Quincy), his nephew Waldo and his Chinese cook Charlie.
My only dislike of the show was the cartoons that focused on Waldo instead of Magoo and used pretty much the same opening footage of Magoo talking on the phone with his nephew. Oh Magoo, you've done it again.
