Oblivious as ever, he proceeds to steer the ‘ole clunker into Facebook. “Zuckerberg, Zuckerberg! I heard you’re being sued again. I’ve got eight lawyers. Let me know if you need one!”
Next, we watch Magoo counter traffic across the Golden Gate bridge. In San Francisco, he smashes through the front doors of Twitter headquarters. His car stops an inch from the cheery twitter bird. “Road hog! You’re driving like a maniac!” He hollers, sending the once happy bird into a spastic chicken dance.
Alas, Magoo floors the gas and plows through a supersized Whatchamacallit that graces the set of Life by Chocolate.
Robyn: Mr. Magoo, Mr. Magoo, I’m over here! You made it!
Mr. Magoo: You’re all nuts, I tell ya! I risked my life for this! Chocolate bits project into his mouth, which he hasn't yet closed. Mmm, not bad. Not bad at all.
John Hubley created Mr. Magoo in 1949. Jim Backus--also known for his role as Mr. Thurston Howell, III on Gilligan’s Island--voiced the character. Mr. Magoo was integral to my childhood. Yours too?
