Add to Watchlist

Based on the original cartoon from 1950, each episode of Gerald McBoing Boing tells a series of small tales and sketches that feature Gerald, who only makes sounds and does not sound out words. This TV series differs from the original in the fact Gerald has been given two talking friends, Janine and Jacob. Each episode is told in rhyming verse that is based on the style made famous by Dr. Seuss, a style that is the perfect companion for the fantastical World's and stories told during each episode.
