{ Kung Fu Magoo Review and Giveaway }

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

When supervillain Tan-Gu invites the world’s most notorious bad guys to his island fortress to compete in an Olympic-style tournament of evil, the fate of the free world hangs in the balance. For the Anti-Evil Task Force there’s only one man who can stop Tan-Gu and save mankind: Kung Fu Magoo!

This feature length film stars the beloved Mr. Magoo and his 12 year-old nephew Justin as they dodge giant robotic spiders, ninjas on jet skis, and Tan-Gu’s mutant “Beasteens” (half animal, half teenage girl!) -- and that’s before the Evil-lympics even begin! With competitions like the 100-meter Destructive Rampage, Laser Cage Wrestling, and the Evil Egg and Spoon Race, Justin must work double-time to help his uncle stay in the competition and avoid danger at every turn.

Featuring the voices of: Dylan Sprouse, Cole Sprouse, Alyson Stoner, Chris Parnell and a special guest appearance by Kenny Mayne.


I was asked to review this movie and I immediately said yes, because I can vividly remember Mr Magoo, do you remember him?

Quincy Magoo (or simply Mr. Magoo) is a cartoon character created at the UPA animation studio in 1949. Voiced by Jim Backus, Quincy Magoo is a wealthy, short-statured retiree who gets into a series of sticky situations as a result of his nearsightedness, compounded by his stubborn refusal to admit the problem. Affected people (or animals) consequently tend to think that he is a lunatic, rather than just being nearsighted. In later cartoons he is also an actor, and generally a competent one except for his visual impairment.

I watched it with my kids and I thought it was really cute, the kids enjoyed it too, especially Nicholas, he thought the whole Kung Fu thing was funny.

Here is the trailer:

Now if you're interested in getting your hands on a copy for your kiddos, or even for yourself, you're in luck.

The wonderful folks over at the Morris + King Company have offered two copies for me to giveaway here on the blog.
