321. When Magoo Flew – Pete Burness

song-of-the-prairie

SUMMARY: Mr. Magoo attempts to go to the movies but manages to stumble onto a plane instead.

WHY IT’S HERE: Mr. Magoo won his first Oscar with ‘When Magoo Flew’, a very funny cartoon that proved that a sometimes repetitive series could still be great when the writing was at its best. This witty outing, in which Magoo mistakes an aeroplane for a cinema, beat strong competition from Tex Avery’s ‘Crazy Mixed-Up Pup’ and Disney’s ‘Pigs is Pigs’ to grab the coveted award for the old geezer.
