Jim Backus immortalized the crusty, visually challenged Quincy Magoo in movies and on TV. The millionaire's small-screen career began in 1960 with the syndicated `Mr. Magoo.' `Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol,' an NBC special, followed in '62 and evolved into a regular prime-time stint titled `The Famous Adventures of Mr. Magoo.' It cast the bumbling eccentric as various historical figures and won a Peabody. Later, `What's New, Mister Magoo' aired on CBS on Saturday mornings.
