Movies I Forgot Existed: Mr. Magoo

Over the years we have been accustom to seeing comics, books and cartoons remade into hit (and sometimes flop) Hollywood motion pictures. Let’s be honest, there are very few original stories out there nowadays. In 1997, Walt Disney continued this tradition of laziness when they made the live-action version of Mr. Magoo starring Leslie Nielsen. What’s that you say? You don’t remember the movie…. What’s that you say? You don’t even remember the original cartoon? Makes sense. Mr. Magoo the animated series was before a lot of our times, reaching it’s popularity in the 1950’s and reruns throughout the 60s, 70s, and 80s.

Mr. Magoo was the story of a wealthy retiree who gets into comical situations because of his lack of sight and stubbornness. While funny for a cartoon, this story mimics real-life problems of senior citizens, which is a major concern. In the 50’s the idea of a blind senior behind the wheel is comical, in 2014 that a serious matter. Now that’s all laugh as this confused old man puts thousands of lives in danger…
