Edit
Trivia For the second half of its only season, NBC moved this series to Saturday evenings at 8:30 p.m. ET, opposite Gilligan's Island on CBS. Because of that, Jim Backus as Mr. Magoo was pitted against Jim Backus as Thurston Howell III. This remains one of the very rare cases in which an actor was regularly scheduled against himself on two U.S. networks. See more »
