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

Gerald McBoing Boing is probably the second most recognizable continuing character created by UPA, after Quincy Magoo. There were only four theatrical shorts made, but there was also a television 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 point of making the shorts to begin with. Well worth watching. Recommended.
