    Description

    Mr. Magoo Stock Poster (Columbia, 1958). One Sheet (27" X 41"). That irascible curmudgeon, the exceptionally far-sighted Mr. Quincy Magoo, first appeared on movie screens nationwide in 1949. Voiced by the inimitable Jim Backus (better known, perhaps, as Thurston Howell III on Gilligan's Island), Magoo was the creation of writer Millard Kaufman and animation director John Hubley, who introduced the character in the UPA short, The Ragtime Bear (it's reported that Columbia had little faith in the short, but decided to release it because it featured a bear). Since then, Magoo has become a pop culture icon, garnering several Academy Award nominations for his cartoons, and starring in everything from TV cartoons to a live-action feature starring Leslie Nielsen! The unrestored stock one sheet offered here has light crossfold separation, and minor fold wear, as well as a tear at the top vertical fold and a tear at the left edge near the top. Even taking these slight flaws into consideration, this is a very attractive and desirable poster, one that will enhance any collection. Fine+.
