''The Cat in the Hat'' is a children's storybook written by Creator/DrSeuss in 1957, that started off his series of books for beginning readers. The story opens on two children who are stuck inside their house due to rain while their mother is out, when they suddenly get a visit from the eponymous character, a six-foot-tall cat who wears a [[NiceHat tall striped hat]]. The Cat offers to entertain them by performing various tricks, with help from his funny-looking assistants, Thing One and Thing Two, despite the objections from the kids' pet fish. Eventually, after the Cat and the Things end up making a mess of the house, the kids take control of the situation, and the Cat makes up for it by cleaning the place on his way out right before the mother returns.

It got [[WesternAnimation/TheCatInTheHat adapted]] in 1971 by [=DePatie-Freleng=] Studios which expands upon the storyline. It was followed up with ''DrSeuss On the Loose'' (in which the Cat introduced animated adaptations of ''Literature/TheSneetches'', ''The Zax'', and ''Literature/GreenEggsAndHam'') and ''WesternAnimation/TheGrinchGrinchesTheCatInTheHat'' (in which the Cat matches wits with the title character of ''WesternAnimation/HowTheGrinchStoleChristmas''). The Cat later starred in puppet form in ''TheWubbulousWorldOfDrSeuss''. The original book also got a LivingBooks title.

* TechnologyMarchesOn: The idea that children would be sitting around with nothing to do because it's raining outside is rather quaint today. Nowadays the Cat in the Hat would have to tear them away from their video games.

It was [[Film/TheCatInTheHat adapted to film]] in 2003, but got critically panned, especially by the Geisel estate that no longer gives support for live-action adaptations for Dr. Seuss films.There is apparently an animated reboot [[http://www.deadline.com/2012/03/dr-seuss-the-cat-in-the-hat-get-new-life-at-chris-meledandris-illumination/ in production]] at [[DespicableMe Illumination]] [[WesternAnimation/TheLorax Entertainment]], effectively putting the live action film under CanonDiscontinuity.

* MatryoshkaObject: The Cat has Little Cat A under his hat, who has Little Cat B under its hat and so forth. [[spoiler:Underneath Cat Z's hat is the "Voom", which unleashes some kind of DivideByZero effect only for when the GodzillaThreshold has been reached (in the case, cleaning up the yard.)]]
