* BlindWithoutEm: Not only is Magoo blind without glasses, he never had 'em in the first place. This is the cause of much of his trademark comedy, although it is toned down somewhat when he is portraying a character other than himself, such Ebenezer Scrooge. The original shorts revealed that Magoo uses a huge magnifiying glass when he's reading at home and owns a pair of glasses, but refuses to wear them out of stubborn pride.
