Quincy Magoo (better known as simply Mr. Magoo) is a cartoon character created at the UPA animation studio in 1949. Voiced by Jim Backus, he is a wealthy, short-statured retiree who gets into a series of comical situations as a result of his nearsightedness, compounded by his stubborn refusal to admit the problem. However, through uncanny streaks of luck, the situation always seems to work itself out for him, leaving him no worse than before.
To date, Mr. Magoo's only appearance in a Christmas special was in the very first animated Christmas television special ever made, Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol. In this adaptation of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol, Magoo portrays the role of Ebenezer Scrooge.
