Mr. Magoo Returns on DVD After a 30 Year Vacation with Kung Fu Magoo

As a child of the 60's I was a big Magoo fan. Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carole was by far my favorite holiday movie for many years.  When I was approached to review a new Magoo movie with Disney stars Dylan and Cole Sprouse I was excited. Would Magoo be relevant? Would kids of today watch it?

Featuring an All-Star Voice Cast:
Dylan Sprouse (as Justin Magoo) ,Cole Sprouse (as Brad Landry), Alyson Stoner (as Lorelei Tan Gu), Chris Parnell (as Cole Fusion) and Kenny Mayne (as himself)

Kung Fu Magoo DVD Synopsis:Join Mr. Magoo and his nephew, Justin, as they dodge giant robotic spiders and jet ski ninjas on a kung fu-style adventure! When supervillian, Tan-Gu, invites the world’s most notorious bad guys to compete in the “Evil-lympics,” there’s only one man who can put a stop to the evil and save mankind—Kung Fu Magoo!  And it’s up to Justin to help his uncle stay in the competition...while avoiding danger at every turn!

SRP: $14.93 and iTunes: $9.99

Runtime: 79 minutes
What I Can Tell You: I put the DVD in and explained to Goddess that we were going to watch a movie called "Kung Fu Magoo". She thought the title was funny. So do I! I told her that when I was little I loved Mr. Magoo. She loves hearing my "when I was a little girl stories."

We sat down on the couch with a blanket and pressed play. She loved it. Magoo is still cute and funny in a sad sort of way. Magoo and his "nephew" fight against evil and Magoo avoid danger by the skin of his teeth.

I was surprised and happy that Goddess liked it. She is not familiar with Dylan and Cole although I believe this will be a reason a lot of tweens might like it.

Kung Fu Magoo is something you and your kids can watch together.  The release date is May 11th, Handsome's birthday.

Also, look for Mr. Magoo in Sherwood Forest.


  1. I always felt SO bad for Mr. Magoo. I was so afraid he was going to hurt himself, especially since I was just like him without my glasses. :-\
    Great review.

  2. When I was young I had bottle think glasses and all the kids use to tease me, calling me Mrs. Magoo. Kids can be so hurtful. But I loved the cartoon, and I would laugh because some of the stuff he did, I could so seeing myself doing it.

    Yeah for Mr. Magoo and his comeback. LOL
