Who coined the term "vagoo"? Is it "Least I can Do"?

Who coined the term "vagoo"? Was it "Least I can Do" the comic?

Also, don't google vagoo if you're like super sensitive

It's weird because Jick and Skullhead talk about it on the Nov 2 radio show. They also mention a Mr Vagoo cartoon which I can't seem to find any info about

Source?

I'm not seeing anything saying where it came from on 4chan, and after finding the first comic where it was featured, a quick google search didn't show anything relevant from before that date.

Unless some concrete proof comes up showing 4chan used it before February 23, 2005, I'm gonna have to chalk this one up to LICD

Also, take, were they making fun of Mr. Magoo?

Ummm... come to think of it, maybe. It just strikes me as really weird that the term has become something to people besides readers of Least I Could Do
