McGee is a series of computer games released by Lawrence Productions for Kindergarteners ages 2-4. The series runs on the Apple IIgs and DOS.

McGee was the first in a series for preschoolers. The program allows kids to control young McGee, a preschooler himself, in and around his house. This is done from the mouse by pointing and clicking at the pictorial icons at the bottom of screen. For instance, if you click on the ball, McGee will start playing with it. If you click on the TV, McGee will sit down and proceed watching the tube. The graphics and animation are all very well done and kids love it.

Katie's Farm, let kids further explore the world of McGee in 1991. The second point and click exploration game for preschoolers, McGee visits his cousin Katie at her farm. The program offers nothing more and nothing less than the original but kids won't mind.

McGee at the Fun Fair, let kids further explore the world of McGee in 1991. The third and last in the series followed the adventures of McGee and his friend Tony at the Fun Fair, with careful supervision from McGee's parents. Again, the same point and click interface gives preschoolers the fun of commanding McGee to explore his environment.

The software is distributed by Broderbund.
