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

Excellent 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 simple idea 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 result is witty and amusing - the animation is stylish (and at times strikingly stylized) and the music and sound effects are once again superb.
