The new series follows the adventures of Mr. Magoo, a friendly elderly man who often gets into all-sorts of mishaps due to his poor eyesight and as a result often mistakes what he sees.

According to the description of the new series, Mr Magoo always ends up ruining the crazy plans of a megalomaniac super genius hamster named Fizz.
