I doubt anybody even noticed, but I completely forgot to post this week's inductee into the TV Crossover Hall of Fame.

This year we're celebrating the tenth anniversary for the site and so to celebrate, there's a new member brought in each week - with a theme for each week. For the third week in each month, we're inducting somebody from the Tooniverse. And with the passing of writer Millard Kaufman this week, who died in his 90's, we're going to make a last minute replacement and induct Mr. Quincy Magoo. (Mr. Kaufman helped create the nearly blind "adventurer".) Mr. Magoo had his own series:

'The Famous Adventures Of Mr. Magoo'

'Mister Magoo'

'What's New, Mr. Magoo?' His best contribution though has to be the wonderful holiday musical, "Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol", in which Mr. Magoo performs as Ebenezer Scrooge on Broadway. Quincy Magoo also schilled for products ranging from GE products to Stag Beer. And he appeared with other citizens of the Tooniverse like Fred Flintstone, Yogi Bear, and Olive Oyl in a 1999 blipvert for Mastercard. (Basically, it lifted its footage of Mr. Magoo from the theatrical short "When Magoo Flew".

Congrats on entering the Hall of Fame.....

But not through that door!

Ah, Magoo, ye've done it again!
