Dr. Seuss's The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T

1953 G

This 1950s musical fantasy written by Dr. Seuss tells the story of Bart Collins (Tommy Rettig), who dreams up an elaborate fairy tale about his horrible piano teacher, Dr. Teriwilliker -- known as Dr. T for short. Dr. Seuss (the wonderful mind behind &NFi;Green Eggs and Ham&NFi_;, &NFi;The Cat in the Hat&NFi_; and &NFi;How the Grinch Stole Christmas&NFi_;) designed the film's fantastical sets and penned many of the songs' memorable lyrics.
