No, Mark and Carla didn't name bOING bOING after Dr. Seuss's wonderful story. (The far stranger truth is right here.) But nonetheless, the story of young Gerald McCloy, aka Gerald McBoing-Boing, is a true delight! Please enjoy this Oscar-winning animation of Gerald McBoing-Boing, adapted from Seuss's story by Phil Eastman and Bill Scott, directed by Robert Cannon, and produced by John Hubley.
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 said? He didn’t talk words— he went boing boing instead!
