The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T

Dr. Seuss, what a kook.

The only feature film written by the man who gave us countless memorable books, it’s a wild day-glo fantasy about a young boy dodging an evil piano teacher.

Box office receipts were miniscule, critics didn’t “get it,” and Dr. Seuss, who originally wrote a 1,200(!) page script, erased the movie from his biography.

Which proves you can be a genius, and still be kind of dumb at times.

Seen today, the film is super-inventive, kinda creepy, and a lot of fun.

Plus, it gave us the “Happy Fingers” hat seen in the photo, so, bonus.
