This is UPA in action.
12 September 2001 | by (Belo Horizonte, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The plot is simple: aliens intending to invade the Earth contact an earthling to learn the language of Earth. However, the aliens kidnap Gerald McBoing-Boing, a kid who doesn't speak--only makes sounds. So the aliens (who actually speak english) think that everybody else on Earth speaks like Gerald, and so the confusion starts.

In fact, the only confusion is that all characters involved on the plot are too cocky to admit that they don't know what's going on, so they pretend they know.

UPA is knows for making cartoons who are fun enough for little children, but also smart enough for grown ups. Anyone with an IQ bigger than its shoesize should love this one.
