Destination Magoo

Last week, I profiled the short, Pink and Blue Blues with layouts by UPA designer and director, Ted Parmelee.  This week, it’s Destination Magoo, an unusual cartoon because it’s the only one to be written by UPA’s two main voice artists, Jim Backus and Jerry Hausner, the voices of Mr. Magoo and Waldo, respectively: 

Once again, Bob McIntosh is featured on backgrounds, this time the layouts are by Sterling Sturtevant: 

Special thanks to Tim Hollis for the photograph of Backus and Hausner.
