The Great Lost Gentle Giant Instrumental?

Well, not really. But a fun and very imaginative piece of music, and a prototype video from the 1950s.

While the musical structures presage Zappa more than GG, the variety of instrumentation brings Gentle Giant to mind.
The actual source is, of course, the Dr. Seuss musical The 5000 Fingers of Dr. T!
I am reposting this for the benefit of my GG friends in other nations who cannot access the clip on YouTube.
