Bald Cartoon character ‘Qunicy Magoo‘ first appeared in the late 1940’s. Mr Magoo’s catch phrase was ‘”Ohh Magoo you’ve done it again”.
Mister Magoo was created at the UPA – United Productions of America, an animation studio active from 1940 up until the late 70’s. The UPA was established after a strike at Walt Disney in the early 1940’s that saw many Disney animators form their own animation studio known as the Industrial Film and Poster Service. Later known as the UPA.
Magoo was portrayed as a retired but rich, short sighted, bald fellow with a short temper that was always getting into tricky situations mostly because of his nearsightedness.
The show always ended with Mr Magoo right back where he started from with no more or less problems than before.
Did you know? – Jim Backus, best known for role as ‘Thurston Howell the 3rd’ in the 1960’s television series Gilligan’s Island was the voice of Mr Magoo.
