| Best Frankenstein ever
These made a deep impression on me as a child. I ended up reading all the classics they were based on and they did a pretty good job of adapting the ones I remembered when I was reading them. Now I don't remember anything. The Fankenstein in particular was closer to the original than any film or television version I've seen since and Moby Dick wasn't bad, either. Call him Ishmael. Magoo's character was especially well suited to Cyrano deBergerac, in which he uncharacteristically played the lead. There was very little typical Magoo shenanigans or laughs in general, which seems like the dumbest idea for a TV show you can imagine, but they really pulled it off with the writing and choice of source material. How they fit everything into a half hour I can't imagine.
