The Cat in the Hat (8-Nov-2003)

Director: Bo Welch

Writers: Alec Berg; David Mandel; Jeff Schaffer

From novel: The Cat in the Hat by Dr. Seuss (juvenile fiction)

Music by: David Newman

Producer: Brian Grazer

Keywords: Juvenile/Comedy, Cats

Film adaptation of the Dr. Seuss book of the same name tells of an anthropomorphic cat and his adventures with two young children.

Conrad and Sally Walden are the children of overworked single mother Joan, living in the town of Anville. Conrad resents their mother's boyfriend, as he appears determined to ship him off to military school. Joan is called into work one day, leaving the children in the care of a babysitter; they discover a talking cat sporting an oversized hat soon after she leaves, ultimately whisked away into a world of mischief and wonder limited only by the fun-loving cat's imagination. More or less an unqualified disaster; Audrey Geisel vowed to forbid any future live-action adaptations of her late husband's works.
