* CutSong: There was a whole bunch of other music written for the film by Dr. Seuss that didn't make the final cut, and only survives on [[http://web.archive.org/web/20051221064958/hometown.aol.com/seivadj18/music.html old production bootlegs]].

As of 2010 Film Score Monthly has rectified this, however, putting out a limited-edition 3-CD set with nearly everything related to the film possible.

* {{Bizarrchitecture}}: It is, quite literally, a Dr. Seuss book brought to life. Note, for example, the Toilet Tree in the background of Bart's cellblock.

** Also Terwilliker mentions to Bart that he plans to present all his pupils in a concert next month, and not to mess it up for him. This concert ends up being theme of Bart's dream...as an ''eternal'' one.

Added DiffLines:

* DisproportionateRetribution: While taking Bart and Zablodowski to be locked up in the dungeon, Terwilliker shows them a drummer from a band he once conducted, whose he's imprisoned inside a drum forever...because he always played an extra boom while playing Beethoven's fifth symphony.


Added DiffLines:

* FunHatingConfiscatingAdult: When the other boys arrive at the insitute, the first the guards do after giving them beanies, is open their suitcases and confiscate their toys or anything that's fun (one guard even holds a boys pet frog out of it's water bowl and suffocates it..''right in front of the boy!'')

There's Siamese-beard rollerskaters, a visit to the most [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment toe-tappingly tuneful dungeon]] ever, and a VERY atomic noise-sucker/bomb. Go track down a copy and watch it! Do it now! (or just go [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o8l_aDTkqgY&feature=SeriesPlayList&p=13BF0CACB2A4B561 here]]!)

''The 5000 Fingers of Dr. T'' is a sadly-overlooked 1953 fantasy movie, especially notable in that it was the only time that DrSeuss ventured into the live-action film medium. In it, young Bartholomew Collins (Tommy Rettig) [[AllJustADream finds himself]] and his hypnotized mother (Mary Healy) trapped in the piano-playing Institute of the maniacal Dr. Terwilliker (Hans Conried), a villain who doesn't just chew Seuss's [[{{Bizarrchitecture}} marvelous scenery]], but engages in an [[ChewingTheScenery epic multicourse banquet]]. Bartholomew's only hope is convincing plumber August Zabladowski (Peter Lind Hayes) to help him, instead of installing the Institute's sinks.
