I'll have to play my copy again and listen to that part carefully; but I don't think that's actually from the Grieg. Rather, I think it's just an original Stalling bit for pizzicato strings.

It's not Anitra's Dance.

Yeah, that's what I thought... thanks for the confirmation!

I don't know why I'm thinking of this at this very moment; but there's a brief quotation from Nicolai's "Merry Wives of Windsor" Overture, during the fight sequence between Mighty Mouse and "Dr. Jekyll's Cat"
