While meeting a new friend, Gerald is abducted by aliens and whisked to the planet Moo.

Hoping to lure Earth tourism to his planet, the king brings the boy back to Earth in the hope of establishing good relations, but Earth diplomats are puzzled by the king's unusual language.

Trivia

One of a small number of animated cartoons designed for and photographed in anamorphic wide-screen (e.g. Cinemascope), Gerald McBoing! Boing! on Planet Moo (1956) was released on home video (a now rare VHS tape from Columbia) in a "squeezed," non-anamorphic version. Few people have actually seen the film in its intended format which adds much to the timing and design of the film: it looks very odd indeed when all the characters are like string beans and their movements are squished together.

Amusing sequel to the incredible Gerald McBoing-Boing
8 January 2002 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This short, nominated for an Academy Award, is a decent effort, quite amusing at times, but in comparison to the first short in the series, it suffers somewhat. Entertaining and quite creative in and of itself and well worth watching, but not a terribly special animated short by comparison to the other ground-breaking work that UPA turned out through the years. Recommended.
