The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T

This otherworldly 1953 fantasy was the only feature film ever written by Dr. Seuss. In it, a troubled suburban youth is shipped off to a joyless music camp by his harried single mother. There, young Bartholomew discovers the evil plan of Dr. Terwilliker: to chain 500 children to the world's largest piano and force them to practice 24 hours a day. You get surreal sets, outlandish characters and some of the oddest songs ever committed to celluloid--all delivered in inimitable Seuss fashion. Not a cartoon mind you, but a seriously trippy live-action musical. 89 minutes
