Idolator Wants To Know: Whatever Happened To Timbaland’s Little Buddy?

Oct 18th, 2006 // 3 Comments

Thanks to his work with Justin Timberlake, Nelly Furtado and a pricey personal trainer, nobody’s had a bigger hot streak this year than Timbaland. But all the Timbalove has gotten us thinking: Whatever happened to his nasal-voiced sidekick, Magoo? The duo put out a bunch of top-notch singles in the mid-’90s, including “Clock Strikes” and “Luv 2 Luv Ya.” There was a poorly received reunion album in 2003, and after that, nothing. Not even a saddening VH1 reality show.

We sort of miss Magoo’s nerd-alert voice, so if anyone has any leads, let us know. Otherwise, we’re starting to think that during Timbaland’s chunky phase a few years back, he may have accidentally eaten Magoo. Don’t pretend like you haven’t thought that!

    I’m pretty sure that Magooo got a sex change and became Missy Elliot. If you close your eyes and listen to the two they sound almost identical. And truth be told they both sort of look alike too.

    This won’t help you track him down, but it may help you figure out why he’s missing:
