Beam Me Up, Raymond Scotty

I don't quite get what this Your Hit Parade show (from 1955) was trying to accomplish with the superimposed graphics (if those graphics are indeed part of the original; they seem to be). But it does lend a sort of prototypical music-video style to this performance by the show's bandleader, Raymond Scott (with his Quintette), of... well, you know which piece.
