1'''Mr.Magoo''' is a reboot of the original ''WesternAnimation/MrMagoo'' cartoon.²²Most of the humor in Mr. Magoo's cartoons came from his [[BlindMistake visual handicap]] and his staunch refusal to acknowledge it.²²!!Mr. Magoo (2019) provides examples of:²²* AdaptedOut: Waldo, Mr. Magoo's nephew from the original series, doesn't exist in this continuity at all.²* AlternateContinuity: This is a completely separate continuity to the original shorts, and ''very'' different in style and tone.²* ArtisticLicence:Biology: In "Free The Rabbit", Magoo claims that rabbits are rodents, they are not, rabbits are part of the Lagomorpha family.²* ArtShift: It's a little more closer to the style of shows such as ''WesternAnimation/ZigAndSharko'', but [[JustifiedTrope justified]] as it's produced by the same people as that show!²* BadassGrandpa: He's old, short and visually impaired. He still can go on adventures, perform incredible feats for a man of his age and mop the floor with whoever who tries to mess with him for real.²* 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.²* CartoonCreature: Fizz may be a hamster, but he has tiger-esque coloring and facial features.²* CityWithNoName: The city in the new setting doesn't ''even have a name''.²* ContinuityReboot: It starts entirely from a clean slate, with the only thing remaining from the original being Mr.Magoo's visual handicap.²* DenserAndWackier: The original series was DarkerAndEdgier at times, but this falls right into this trope by virtue of a megalomaniac hamster and emphasis on outright comedy.²* EvilIsPetty: Fizz will sometimes try to eliminate Magoo despite being aware that he's blind and only foils his plots through dumb luck.²* FluffyTheTerrible: Would you really expect '''Fizz''' as a name for a megalomaniac hamster?²* FormallyNamedPet: Your dog's name is Mr. Cat. ²* FriendlyEnemy: There are times when Weasel can be quite civil to Magoo and even ''help'' him.²* HoistByHisOwnPetard: So far, Fizz seems to get caught in his own traps - one example was him getting injured while trying to infiltrate a BlandNameProduct Oscars counterpart, and getting injured during filming.²* IneffectualSympatheticVillain: Fizz tries to succeed, but fails every so often that it's probably easy to root for him.²* LighterAndSofter: Compared to the 1959-1977 originals, this is more focused on {{Slapstick}} and outright comedy.²* MinionWithAnFInEvil: Weasel isn't ''that'' evil compared to Fizz, although he is sometimes subservient to him.²* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: The president looks like UsefulNotes/{{Barack Obama}}, but does not have his name revealed.²* ProWrestlingEpisode: Parodied. In fact, it ends up being more like [[MistakenForIndex Mistaken For Magician]] when Mr. Magoo assumes the wrestling ring is actually a magician's arena!²* PunchClockVillain: Weasel, Fizz's assistant, isn't really ''that'' evil and seems to be good off the clock.²* UnknownRival: Magoo is completely unaware of Fizz's existence and anything he does to foil his schemes is done by accident.
