Gerald McBoing-Boing is an animated children's television series based on the original cartoon. It premiered on Cartoon Network (United States) on August 22, 2005, as part of their Tickle-U programming block, and on TELETOON in English and French (Canada) on August 29, 2005. Each 11-minute episode features a series of vignettes with Gerald, of which the "fantasy tales" are done in Seussian rhyme. There are also sound checks, gags, and "real-life" portions of the show.

Gerald still only makes sounds, but he now has two speaking friends, Janine and Jacob, as well as a dog named Burp, who only burps (accompanied by someone, usually Gerald's mother, saying "excuse me" afterwards). Gerald's parents (names unknown) also fill out the regular cast. The television series was produced in Canada by Cookie Jar Entertainment, and directed by Robin Budd and story edited/written by John Derevlany. The animation was done by Mercury Filmworks in Ottawa & Vancouver. The music and score for the series was composed by Ray Parker, Jr. and Tom Szczesniak.

Gerald McBoing-Boing currently airs on Boomerang, weekdays at 6:00PM Eastern Time, It is also shown on ABC TV (ABC Kids) in Australia, Five's Milkshake! in the UK and RTE Two's The Den in Ireland
