Ah, the wonders of technology!
10 December 2002 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This is the next to last theatrical Gerald McBoing Boing short done by UPA, with this being the third of the four that the studio produced. It's a cute, clever cartoon, but the novelty factor is beginning to wear off and there's not enough other solid material to sustain extending the series. It's brought to a resolution of sorts here, as Gerald and his parents turn to science and technology for a communication breakthrough. Enjoyable and with enough moments to make it worth watching, even though it pales in comparison to the first one, Gerald McBoing Boing. There was also a television series that featured the character, as well as other material done specifically for television. Well worth watching. Recommended.
