Mister Magoo's Christmas Carol

program: 
Words and Pictures
program date: 
Thu, 12/10/2009

Nearly half a century ago, the UPA animation studio was a haven for misfit geniuses struggling to create relevant cartoon films in the face of political and cultural repression.  Gambling the future of the company on an hourlong television special featuring their most popular recurring character, they created a wildly successful holiday classic. 

The new book Mister Magoo's Christmas Carol: the Making of the First Animated Christmas Special collects long buried archival material into an exhaustive artistic and historical document.  Author Darrell Van Citters is joined by Magoo animator Jack Heiter to tell Words & Pictures listeners the story behind the Magoo story.  Bill Dodge and S.W.Conser host.

Thanks to Emily Young for her engineering help on this show.
