He's one of the all-time favorite comic characters of all time. Mr. Magoo. Quincy Magoo was created at the UPA animation studio in 1949. Magoo was a wealthy, short-statured retiree who got into a series of comical situations as a result of his nearsightedness, compounded by his stubborn refusal to admit the problem. Through uncanny streaks of luck, the situation always seemed to work itself out for him, leaving him no worse than before.

The actor Jim Backus was the voice of Magoo. Magoo won 2 Oscars for Academy Award for Best Short Subject (Cartoons). In 2002, TV Guide ranked Mr. Magoo number 29 on its "50 Greatest Cartoon Characters of All Time" list.

Mr. Magoo helped advertise the General Electric line of products throughout the 1950s and 60s.

This vintage 1950s promotional pin has him holding up a light bulb (no doubt, it's a G.E. bulb). He's got his cane, a hat, a bright red jacket (missing a tiny green rhinestone button) and an expression that's typically Magoo. He's hand-painted on gold-tone metal.

The pin measures 1 inch across by 1 1/2 inches high. The back has a secure rollover clasp. Excellent vintage condition.
