Bart must save the 500 other piano students from their teacher, the evil Dr. T! This musical fantasy boasts a story, screenplay and lyrics by Dr. Seuss, himself.

Young Bart Collins (Tommy Rettig) lives with his widowed mother Heloise (Mary Healy). The blight of Bart’s existence are the hated piano lessons he endures under the tutelage of the autocratic Dr. Terwilliker (Hans Conried). Bart feels that his mother has fallen under Terwilliker’s influence, and gripes to plumber August Zabladowski (Peter Lind Hayes), without result. While hammering at his lessons, Bart dozes off and enters a musical dream. (USA, 1953, 89 min., Rated G, DCP | Dir. Roy Rowland)
