Storyline

Mr. Magoo is watching a TV program named "Home Roam" which examines the homes of various families and subsequently learns that he and Waldo have been scheduled to air on tonight's broadcast. Magoo proceeds to show the cameramen the various rooms and exhibits of his house. Unfortunately, his publicity is threatened by a burglar and his trained gorilla who break into Magoo's house and attempt to rob it. Of course, Magoo doesn't notice the gorilla (he even mistakes it for Waldo) and reassures the cameramen that Waldo will be all right even if he does have "the manners of a gorilla". Written by Matt Yorston <george.y@ns.sympatico.ca>

The last theatrically produced Magoo and it's a fitting conclusion for UPA!
3 September 2002 | by llltdesqSee all my reviews

This short is the last one produced for movie theater release, both in the Magoo series as well as the last made by the studio. Magoo goes out in perfect form and style. The plot revolves around a television program and a most unusual burglary. The standard Magoo sight gags and a most entertaining finale to the run. Well worth tracking down and getting. Most highly recommended.
