Dr. Seuss’ The Cat in the Hat

Release Date: November 21, 2003

Today is a special day for Conrad and Sally Walden—even though they don't think it is.

After all, what's so special about being left with a sleeping babysitter while your mom is at work? And what brand of special is being forbidden from having anything even remotely resembling "fun"? Sitting and staring out the window feels pretty un-special, actually, and the rain outside looks about as far away from special as you can get.

All things considered—nope, not special in the least.

But that's before a six-foot-tall talking feline appears, sporting a red-and-white-striped stovepipe hat, a jaunty red bow tie and a super-sized fondness for fun.

Now that's special.

Mike Myers (DreamWorks Animation's Shrek franchise), whose unrivaled comedic talent brings one of America's most beloved characters to life as no one else can, stars in the title role of Universal Pictures/DreamWorks Pictures/Imagine Entertainment's Dr. Seuss' The Cat in the Hat, the live-action film adaptation of the cherished literary classic, produced by Academy Award-winner and producer of the blockbuster Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas Brian Grazer (who produced the Best Picture winning film A Beautiful Mind for DreamWorks) and directed by Bo Welch, the three-time Oscar­-nominated film production designer behind such distinctive films as Men in Black and Men in Black II.

Based on the best-selling children's book by Dr. Seuss, the film is written by Alec Berg & David Mandel & Jeff Schaffer, who previously wrote Grinch for Grazer and Imagine/Universal.
