Original Summary:
"Presents an animated overview of the growth of cities, showing what man has done to his enviornment, from the explorer first spotting land to man reaching the moon." - Audiovisual Materials Catalog 2002-2007 by Audiovisual Services of St. Louis Public Schools.

"An amusing diagnosis of big city growing pains, Boomsville is an ironic view of town planning, or rather the lack of it, and what has happened to cities as a result. In cartoon animation, the film traces the growth of the typical city from a tiny settlement in the vast northern wilderness to the car-clogged metropolis of so many cities today." - WorldCat.
