The episode was available on video for sale (along with some other
episodes) a few years ago  Perhaps it is still available

Best,

There was a whole series of Mr. Magoo Does The Classics (not what it was
called, of course). I remember Cyrano de Bergerac and the Count of Monte
Cristo; I know there were others.

It is part of an entire series.  "Wishbone" the dog is slightly less
plausible than Magoo the great actor.  The animated series had a framing
device of Magoo in his dressing room before the "performance."  Perhaps
the one role that Magoo was anatomically correct for any rate, was
Cyrano.  He did a better job than Steve Martin.

I recall "Don Quixote", "Snow White"--Magoo played ALL seven dwarves,
probably the best known is a musical version of "A Christmas Carol."
