Added DiffLines:

* NeverLiveItDown: The live-action Disney adaptation did not do the character or the cartoon's legacy any favors; drawing considerable ire was the ending disclaimer stating the film was never meant as an accurate portrayal of blind individuals, an accusation that has stayed with the character among modern viewers.

** At least this is one of the few adaptations of "A Christmas Carol" that DOESN'T have Scrooge falling into hell (we're looking at you Disney) Instead we have the Tearjerker listed below.

* TearJerker: Young Ebeneezer's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b7qOFB4IXA8 song]] in the Christmas Carol (which gets an equally--if not more--heartbreaking reprise by adult Ebeneezer later; bet you never thought Jim Backus would make you cry).

* HarsherInHindsight: Mr. Magoo was the star character of UPA, an animation studio founded out of the ashed of a terrible strike at the Walt Disney Studios in the early '40s by artists who wanted to do more experimental animation. He was later adapted into a live-action movie... by Disney.

* FairForItsDay: Magoo blindly stumbling through the world was originally created as a comment on old-world men who were "blind to progress." Nowadays, he's simply remembered as being a cheap excuse to make blindness jokes.

Added DiffLines:

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Is Magoo's nephew Waldo an idiot, or is he an [[OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent ordinary high school or college student]] who isn't allowed to get a word in edgewise. In ''The Mr. Magoo Show'', when Waldo is cast as sidekick to scheming Presley, the former's definitely the case. The original theatrical shorts, and especially the movie, tend toward the latter.
