Description: Gerald McBoing Boing, a tiny man who can't talk but can imitate any sound, is working as a one-man sound results department for a radio station. When a scheduled symphony orchestra does not present up, Gerald replaces them. He is doing fine until he mixes up the score with the sound results script, and creates an original symphony. He is fired, but the critics hail his work as that of a genius.

Gerald McBoing-Boing's Symphony Reviews:

Perfect second outing for Gerald McCloy "the noise-making boy", which, although not based on Dr. Seuss material this time, manages to be faithful in style to his original vision whilst also bringing in some slightly more sophisticated humour. We join Gerald where we left him at the end of the original story, working for a radio station making sound effects. When a symphony orchestra fails to turn up for a performance, the station manager turns to Gerald out of desperation... A easy concept is fleshed out beautifully - in the absence of a Dr Seuss original to base the script on, the writer (T. Hee) takes some entertaining liberties with the rhyming couplet style and the effect is witty and amusing - the animation is ellegant (and at times strikingly stylized) and the melody and sound results are once again superb.


In this, the second Gerald McBoing Boing animated short from UPA, the game hero is asked by his radio station manager to voice an whole symphony orchestra when the scheduled performers fail to present up. Unfortunately, it seems Gerald has the melody sheets mixed up with the sound results one...Not as nice as the first one written by author Dr. Seuss (who is referenced as one of Gerald's doctors here) but cute entertaining nonetheless. Bobe Cannon did the direction and one of the animators was Bill Melendez. Loved when Gerald did a true loud explosion noise and the adults around him just jumped in the air and froze! In summation, Gerald McBoing Boing's Symphony comes highly recommended. P.S. Spike Jones is also referenced here.


Gerald McBoing Boing is probably the second most recognizable continuing hero created by UPA, after Quincy Magoo. There were only four theatrical shorts made, but there was also a tv series done, which is the likely reason there were only four theatrical shorts. While all are good, they're uneven, with this one being somewhat predictable in a sense, to anyone who saw the first cartoon, at any rate. Fascinating and fun to watch anyway, which is the mission of making the shorts to start with. Well worth watching. Recommended.
