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.
