Storyline

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 mother gets back, but their pompous neighbor has bigger plans for them.

Trivia

In an interview for the AV Club's "Random Roles" feature, Amy Hill said that Mike Myers was terrible to work with, because he refused to talk to anyone on the production but the director Bo Welch and completely isolated himself from the cast and crew during breaks in the filming. Hill noted that the film ended up having long and pointless additional takes of scenes because Myers overruled Welch on whether they were good enough or not. See more »

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

[first lines]
Narrator: There are gajillions of stories of mischief and fun, but to keep things simple, let's start with just one. About a mom and two kids and a house and a hat - that, oddly enough, was worn by a cat. But soon enough we will get to all that.

Crazy Credits

When the Cat and Things are walking down the street at the end of the movie, the credits scroll while the camera pans up to the evening sky, and when it turns into nighttime, the pink clouds, crescent moon, and stars are animated in the style of Seuss's artwork. Twenty seconds of the credits are like this, then the rest of the end credits scroll against a regular black background. See more »

Alternate Versions

In the TV version, there are some scenes that represent alternate takes of scenes present in the theatrical/video version. This includes but is not limited to the couch scene, a portion of the Kupkake-inator scene and several omitted pop culture references. See more »
