WUMP and GERALD McBOING BOING
rare Capitol singles are featured this week. First you'll hear
the story of Gossamer Wump, a freckle-faced little boy with one blue
eye and one green one. This is an unusually thick and heavy
twelve-inch 78RPM instead of the more common ten-inch size. It
is told by Frank Morgan, who played the wizard in The Wizard of Oz.
Then one of the most familiar voices from old time radio, The Great Gildersleeve (Harold
Peary) tells us the story of Dr. Suess' Gerald McBoing Boing.
Gerald can't talk, he goes "boing boing" instead! In
1950, UPA Studios produced a Gerald McBoing Boing
cartoon, which won
an Academy Award for best animated short film.
