And now a treat for music lovers: a song from “The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T” (1953)

One of my favorite movies of all time is "The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T" I loved it as a kid, and now that I’m a grownup I’m still fond of it. It is from a story by Dr. Seuss.

I was just reminiscing fondly of a particular song, and found that it was on Youtube:

Also, I have a crush on Hans Conreid (who is getting dressed) of this time period. He used to host a TV show called "Fractured Flickers" that you fellow middle agers might remember….

It was from the "Rocky & Bullwinkle Show" people. It had the same voices, and they dubbed silent movies with dialog and made a new story.

The only one I can remember is “The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Boy Cheerleader”. He hung from the bell chanting:

“One two three four

who are we for”

in Dudley Do-Right’s voice.

Hans Conreid also played Uncle Tonoose on the Danny Thomas show.

Aw, memories….
