* UncannyValley: The Things. WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic pointed this out in his review of the movie; in illustrations and animation, you can get away with designing characters without upper-lips since it would look like mustaches or wrinkles, but in live-action doing that only makes characters look downright ''creepy''. The Cat himself is no better.

** The film got lots of flak for casting Creator/MikeMyers as the Cat (after Creator/TimAllen left the film) due to his track record of humor being inappropriate for the typical age demographic of Dr. Seuss readers (although he was notable as another kids' icon, WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}}); he was forced into the film due to Universal being angry over him cancelling a movie adaptation of ''[[Series/SaturdayNightLive Sprockets]]''. Unfortunately, many of the fears from parents ended up being realized once the film came out.

* SugarWiki/AwesomeArt: The [[Creator/UniversalPictures Universal]][=/=]Creator/DreamWorks[=/=][[Creator/ImagineEntertainment Imagine]] [[VanityPlate logos]]. All three animated in the style of the original book, with some gags thrown in (Mr. Krinklebine even appears in Imagine's ripples). The movie may be reviled, but most admit the logos at least surpassed it.

* NeverLiveItDown: This movie will forever be remembered as the textbook example on how ''not'' to do a family-centered film. It's also going to be remembered for permanently damaging the reputation of one of Dr. Seuss' most beloved and recognizable icons, even more so than what happened to the Grinch.

* MemeticMutation: In the [[YouTubePoop YouTube Poops]] that have been made out of this, Krinklebine's "Outrageous!" is often repeated for humorous effect.

* WTHCostumingDepartment: Even the world of Dr. Seuss could not find a home for The Cat as brought to life by Mike Myers, who's suit and makeup made for some hardcore UncannyValley and pales to the Grinch's design when donned by Jim Carrey.

Added DiffLines:

* BileFascination: It's a Dr. Seuss movie ''loaded'' with gags and lines that wouldn't be out of place in an ''Austin Powers'' movie. One just ''has to'' see why this did not go over well with Seuss' family.

** The Cat saying "EGGS! EGGS!" has also become rather popular.



* FridgeBrilliance: The reason Cat is threatening violence or planning to threat violence to Nevins is because he's a Cat and Nevins is a dog. Cats naturally hate dogs.

** "Dirty hoe!"[[note]]One of many infamous moments of GettingCrapPastTheRadar in the movie.[[/note]]
** "CHA-CHING!"[[note]]This line comes immediately after a scene where Conrad compares the slide they're on to a theme park. The Cat chimes in "You mean like at...''Universal Studios?!''", holds up ''tickets to the park'', and then says this line. WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic suggested this be the new Dr. Suess logo, complete with [[WesternAnimation/TomAndJerryTheMovie Dr. Lickboot]] saying "We've got to have...MONAAAAY!".[[/note]]



* TookTheBadFilmSeriously: It's pretty obvious that poor Mike Myers was trying his best to make the this film at least bearable, but there was simply nothing he could do to save the disaster. Same for Sean Hayes.
