That's Pandora's Box right near the end - the pink and orange striped building. There's a fence around it and a sign, So I would guess this is just before they tore it down. The tape replays in slow motion the Pandora's box segment.

Keel moose and squirrel !

At 0:43, we see a 15-foot-tall French-Canadian moose standing guard in front of Jay Ward Productions ! The rotating statue was unveiled to the public September 24, 1961 to commemorate "The Bullwinkle Show" joining NBC .

At 0:53, we also see The Plush Pup hot dog stand. In 1971, it became The Dudley Do-Right Emporium (closed in April 2005).
