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 [[WesternAnimation/DespicableMe Illumination]] [[WesternAnimation/TheLorax Entertainment]], effectively putting the live action film under DisownedAdaptation.

* 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 divide by zero effect only for when the GodzillaThreshold has been reached (in the case, cleaning up the yard.)]]

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* PutOnABus: Despite being a prominent character in the first book, the fish is never even mentioned in the sequel. Partly justified since most of the story takes place outside, and because the kids remembered their last encounter with the Cat and are far less trusting of him as a result, making the fish's role unnecessary.

Added DiffLines:

* BlueAndOrangeMorality: The cat is never malevolent. He is simply trying to have fun and doesn't understand the damage he is doing.
