Conrad and Sally Walden (Spencer Breslin and Dakota Fanning) are home alone with their pet fish. It is raining outside, and there is nothing to do. Until The Cat in the Hat ('Mike Myers') walks in the front door. He introduces them to their imagination, and at first it's all fun and games, until things get out of hand, and The Cat must go, go, go, before their parents get back. Written by
The downtown area outdoor shots were filmed along a Pomona, California street, where several antique and gift shops are located. The community decided not to redecorate after filming ended, so the surreal paint scheme, and some of the signage, can still be seen as it appears in the movie. See more »
When Quinn walks in and the children stop jumping on the couch, we can see the pillow over the "elephant compartment" sunken in. The pillow is quickly fixed before the next shot. See more »
Audrey, I know you truly cherish your husband Ted's memory but PLEASE do his legacy justice and heed his wishes. Dr. Seuss refused to license his characters during his lifetime for a very good reason. We beg of you to please stop cashing in on his stories, images, fantasies and characters. They are getting disemboweled by the powers that be of Hollywood and Broadway. The children of tomorrow will be stuck with these histrionic and grotesque interpretations that will forever pollute the loving warmth and innocence of his books.
It is indeed your property to do with as you wish. I just wish you would listen to the advice of others for a little while. Save what is left of Dr. Seuss. Thank you.
