Saturday Night Cartoons: Gerald McBoing-Boing

You never see enough of the old UPA studios cartoons anymore. Well, you don't really see enough of any older, theatrically released cartoons anymore, but even still, the Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies crew and the Disney characters get trotted out for TV showings at least a few times a year, and on DVD, too. UPA, though, not so much. Thank Kirby for the inter-ma-webs, though. Here's one of their very based, written by Dr. Seuss his own self, Gerald McBoing-Boing.



Oh, and hey, did I mention?

I don't know if you get THIS TV down your way, but they occasionally use UPA cartoons as filler between movies.

The foley effects, the laugh track (?!?), the voice acting, the score -- all mega-flashback material.
