Mister Magoo's Christmas Carol on Cartoon Network
Since I dwell at the butt-end of Generation X, the 1962 animated holiday special Mister Magoo's Christmas Carol was never on my holiday TV plate. Perhaps it aired when I was youngster, but damned if I ever saw it. However, I always hear fond memories about the special from folks older than myself, so out of the goodness of my awesome heart I thought I'd let everyone know that the special will air on December 24 at 6:30am on Cartoon Network. That's early, I know, but what can you do? Fly around the Earth and reverse time like Superman? The show would still air at 6:30am even if you did do that, which is why he's Superman and you're not. Superman thinks these things through before he does them.
Obviously, the special is a spoof of Dickens' A Christmas Carol, with Magoo in the role of Ebenezer. During the '50s and early '60s Magoo was UPA's (United Productions of America) most famous character, and starred in the studio's only feature film, 1001 Arabian Nights. The Christmas special would lead to The Famous Adventures of Mr. Magoo, a series that would place Mr. Magoo in various literary roles.
Special thanks to Toonopedia, for filling in the many gaps in my Magoo knowledge.
