When I first saw this as a child my mother noted that it finally explained how Mr. Magoo could live the way he did. He was an actor who was too vain to admit his age and wear glasses.
The backgrounds are limited animation and impressionistic. They are nostalgic art.
Jim Backus, however, misreads "nothing the world commends so much as wealth" as "nothing the world condemns so much as wealth". He should have put his glasses on.
Englishmen watching it may need an explanation for the nonsense words in the scene of the Cratchits' dinner. It is a satire on the bewilderment of generations of American children trying to understand the terminology of 19th century English cuisine when was presented without explanatory notes.
This is a great show to introduce your younger kids to "A Christmas Carol", and in fact is the reason I bought it. We all watched it with out granddaughter and then presented it to her as a gift.
As with all of us when forced to look into the past, present and future we are given a wake-up call and realize we need to pay attention to what we are doing and get things in perspective.
This is an excellent movie for the holidays and for family members of all ages. A great movie. Strongly recommended.
Mr. Magoo brings all his most hard edged cold big business conservative like values to the character of Scrooge and voiced by Jim Bacus Mr. Magoo is instantly believable as a tough, street wise, penny pinching old miser. Mr. Magoo does not take easily to the lessons shown him as the three ghosts visit but subtly at first one see's his transformation start taking shape. Of course when the final spirit visitor points to his grave the transformation completes with lightening speed as, the business Man Magoo see's the BOTTOM LINE of his previous life. Mr. Magoo leaves his ghostly visitors a changed man and awakens to Christmas Day reborn. His body is still old as it had been but his spirit was renewed and no one epitomizes this transition batter than Jim Backus as his over the top treatment of Magoo's change is just right. As a child MR. MAGOOS CHRISTMAS CAROL captured the spirit of Christmas for me. As an adult MR. MAGOOS CHRISTMAS CAROL COLLECTORS EDITION BD/DVD COMBO [Blu-ray] reminds this old Magoo like man I've become to remember \ honor the better angels of my nature and live accordingly! This is a great lesson and memory pleasantly presented for just a few dollars spent.
I'm autistic and my vision is terrible. I've always been a total geek and nerd. in my youth I wore glasses too, When I was young people used to call me Mr. Magoo and at the time I felt extremely insulted. Now that I am older, successful and I do what I want say what I feel and much of it not politically correct, I'm honored to be called Mr. Magoo. Watching Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol is a fun and funny affirmation for me.
