* FridgeHorror: Sort of a "blink and you'll miss it" moment, but when the Cat has the kids sign a contract, he pulls out a paper with the words "Spayed and Neutered". Perhaps [[WebVideo/TheCartoonHero Eli Stone]] put it best:
-->"The Cat's not just a furry... ''[[{{Squick}} he's a hermaphrodite furry!]]''"
** Which raises the question of how the GroinAttack hurt so much if he was already neutered. Also, how can he be ''spayed'' if he's male?

** "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]]

* 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.

** In early 2017 a screenshot from the movie of The Cat holding a baseball bat became a popular meme.

* PopularityPolynomial: Was well-received when it first came out, but fell somewhat into obscurity in the 80s and 90s, overshadowed by the animated version of ''WesternAnimation/HowTheGrinchStoleChristmas'' (and, to a lesser extent, ''Literature/TheLorax''). In 2003 it got a DVD release to cash in on the live-action version, and was widely regarded as a ''far'' superior adaptation by comparison.

* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: This film definitely qualifies: Despite it being based on a book meant for kindergarteners, the movie dealt with a lot of extremely crass humor and rather dirty things that should not be exposed to kids, to the extent that it's almost as though the movie is actually missing a [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar crap detection radar]]. Dr. Seuss's widow was actually so disgusted by this that she decided not to be a part of any film adaptation of her late husband's works, other than declaring that any future adaptations would only be animated from now on. At least it is not as crude as ''WesternAnimation/SausageParty'' (this one was '''never''' intended for an audience below the age of 17-18; ''The Cat in the Hat'' was).

** Which raises the questions of why he was such a horndog (er, horn''cat'') throughout the movie, and why the later GroinAttack hurt so much if he was already neutered.

* 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.
