  • Dr. Seuss is rolling in his grave

    This is just another case of a book adaptation gone terribly wrong. Gerald McBoing Boing is based on the book series from everyone's favorite children's book author Dr. Seuss. It follows a boy named Gerald who is only able to speak through sound effects only like a ball bouncing, or a car horn, and so on. I only read one book of this series, and basically it was Gerald being shunned out by his friends, and used his gift to make everyone believe that it's OK to be different. If this show is trying to be educational then it fails at that. It teaches kids certain sound effects which is nice, but it seems to also implicate that it's OK to make those sound effects everywhere you go. It's kind of a bad message and unneeded. Kids will think they can make these sounds at a library, in class, or anywhere else. The humor is just pathetic, and terrible. It tries to use slapstick humor, and it doesn't work at all. The artwork is pretty decent and good, and the animation is also good it flows smoothly in the show. Overall, If Dr. Seuss was alive today he would just shake his head in disbelief, and pull the plug on this show. I also heard this show is getting new episodes, and if it is then I hope it isn't on Cartoon Network. Unless you want your kids to be making sound effects constantly parents are advised to show kids the Dr. Seuss books instead of watching this show.
