* HeReallyCanAct: In universe Magoo is actually an accomplished actor despite his visual problems.
** Out of universe, Jim Backus sings a truly [[TearJerker heartwrenching]] song in the Christmas Carol.
* NightmareFuel: In ''[[YetAnotherChristmasCarol Mr Magoo's Christmas Carol]]'', there are some truly frightening scenes when the [[BadFuture Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come]] shows up, such as when Scrooge sees the undertaker, the charwoman, and the maid selling his wretched goods off to the pawnbroker with much [[KickTheDog twisted glee all around]]. Really, for a kid's cartoon from the 1960s, they were downright vile.
** There were some even nastier moments in ''The Famous Adventures of Mr. Magoo''. For instance, in the ones (very loosely) adapting ''{{Frankenstein}}'' and ''[[RudyardKipling Gunga Din]]'', they actually ''{{kill|edOffForReal}}'' Magoo[[note]]well, technically, his ''characters''; the concept of the ''Famous Adventures'' series was that Magoo was an actor appearing in stage play adaptations of famous stories[[/note]] at the end. ON SCREEN!
* TearJerker: Young Ebeneezer's 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).
-->Where is the voice to answer mine back?
-->Where are two shoes that click to my clack?
-->I'm all alone in the world.
** Winter Was Warm feels like a sad song too. It's just a shame that it had to be EditedForSyndication. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kole2oVfAaY Video]]
