While their mother is out on a shopping errand, Dick and Sally are stuck indoors on a dull, rainy day, with nothing to do. Their dreary afternoon, however takes an unexpected turn when they’re paid a visit by a charismatic, six-foot tall, hat-wearing cat, who invites himself in to search for his misplaced “moss-covered, three-handled family gredunza.”
Employing the “Calculatus Eliminatus” method, the children help the Cat in the Hat look for his missing keepsake but in the process, leave the house in a mess. Mr. Krinkelbein, the family’s wise pet goldfish, who in effort to look out for the kids’ best interest, protests the Cat in the Hat’s shenanigans and orders him to leave. The Cat in the Hat however, preoccupied with finding his missing “gredunza,” enlists the help of his best friends, Thing One and Thing Two, to help with the search but the pair only manage to bring the house into further disarray.
Unfazed by the chaos that’s slowly unfolding around them, Dick and Sally are captivated by the Cat in the Hat and his madcap, whimsical ways. They pass the afternoon in sheer delight, singing happy songs and engaging playful mayhem with their uninvited guest. Even the cynical Mr. Krinkelbein is won over by the Cat’s infectious charm. Everyone is having way too much fun to notice the house is a complete mess! That’s until Dick and Sally hear their mother coming home. How in the world will they clean up the enormous mess before she walks through the front door?
The deluxe edition of Dr. Seuss’s The Cat in the Hat includes two additional Dr. Seuss classics Daisy-Head Mayzie and The Hoober-Bloob Highway.
My thoughts…My kiddos LOVE books and Dr.Seuss’s are one of their favorites collections – so it was no surprise that they enjoyed watching The Cat in the Hat! While it’s only 25 minutes short, it’s perfect timing for a quick movie here and there…or great in the car for a quick drive to the store or to a friend’s house.
At first, I was turned off by the first couple minutes of The Cat in the Hat, but then I quickly caught onto his little game to keep the kids occupied while their Mom was away - even though their pet fish wanted the Cat in the Hat out!
Daisy-Head Mayzie was cute too! So sad when the kids in her class were laughing at her…kids should take a note or two on this one! I couldn’t follow the The Hoober-Bloob Highway episode – it was too grainy & fast for me, but the kiddos loved it!
