Before the Disney one with Leslie Neilsen?  Wasn’t there also an old movie version of Mr Magoo and didn’t Walter Mathu play him?  That would be so cool to see.

Nnnnnnnnno.  😐  (And Disney only got the Leslie Nielsen version from the same clearance-sale package of would-be Classic Media projects that gave us the name-only live-action Underdog, Brendan Fraser as George of the Jungle, and Christopher Lloyd as My Favorite Martian.  At 90's Disney, Everything Happened in Threes.)

However, "Magoo's 1001 Arabian Nights" is finally available on DVD, for those who patiently waited:  https://www.amazon.com/Mr-Magoo-Theatrical-Collection-1949-1959/

Maybe you're thinking of Matthau as Mr. Wilson in DENNIS THE MENACE.

I still kinda chuckle at the memory of back in the '90's( and a bit into 2YK) there actually WAS a referee in the NHL named MICK McGEOUGH (pronounced "Magoo")!  ;)
