They say it all started when Gerald was two— That's the age kids start talking— least, most of them do. Well, when he started talking, you know what he stated? He didn't speak words— he went boing boing instead! So goes the hilarious tale of a boy who was a little bit different— a tale that only Dr. Seuss could create. Based on the Academy Award-winning motion picture!
"Just suppose,"said Ted"Dr. Seuss"Geisel,"there was a little kid who didn't speak words but only weird sounds? And now it's back!"Therefore Gerald Mc Boing Boing was born, brought to life by a studio called United Productions of America as an animated cartoon. This delightful, rhyming story went on to win an Academy Award in 1951, and was briefly made available as a book in the time with all of the movie's release.
When Gerald Mc Cloy turns two, he doesn't start talking like most children--he says"Boing boing!"instead. School is no help, either."like a big keg of exploding powder. In time, Gerald only increases in volume, shouting"Boom! His George Jetson-style father, turning gray, rushes to call Doctor Malone, who decrees there is no cure."He cuckoos and honks inside the classroom,"And as little Gerald/ grew older, he found/ When a fellow goes BAM! / no one wants him around.
Outcast, forlorn, he runs away from house. / You're GONG is terrific,/ your toot is inspired!"But just as he is about to board a slow-moving freight, the owner with each of the BONG-BONG-BONG radio station accosts him by the tracks. / Quick come to BONG-BONG-BONG,/ Mc Boing Boing--you're hired!"I need a smart fellow/ to make each of the sounds,/ Who can bark like a dog/ and bay like the hounds!
