"DIR: Robert Cannon SUMMARY: Gerald McBoing-Boing is a little boy who cannot speak in words but instead communicates through sound effects. WHY IT'S HERE: 'Gerald McBoing-Boing' is a classic cartoon based on a Dr. Seuss story and told in verse. The title character is a little boy who speaks in noises instead of words. With its blank beige backdrops and storybook-style character designs, 'Gerald McBoing-Boing' saw UPA proudly flaunting their purposefully reductive approach and it proves that,"
