The Cat in the Hat is an animated musical television special first aired on CBS on March 10, 1971, based on the 1957 Dr. Seuss' children's book of the same name. Produced by DePatie-Freleng using veteran Warner Bros. theatrical-cartoon animators, and featuring the voices of comedian and song satirist Allan Sherman and prolific voiceover performer, Daws Butler, this half-hour special is a loose adaptation with added musical sequences.

Cat in the Hat[edit]

  • I am indeed a cat, and this, indeed, is a HAT.


  • The sun did not shine, it was too wet to play.
    Just sit in a house all that cold, cold, wet day.
  • Sit by the window, just sit there and stew.
    And wish there was something, (yawns) something to do.
  • Too gooey and dunky outdoors to play ball.
    Nothin' doing,
    Nothing at all.


Mr. Krinklebine the Fish: Out of this house! I'm warning you, get!
Cat in the Hat: Who's that? I believe that we haven't yet met.
Mr. Krinklebine the Fish: The name is Krinklebine. Carlos K. Krinklebine.
Cat in the Hat: Ooh.
Mr. Krinklebine the Fish: Now please go away. Tell that top-hatted cat he should not be about. He should not be here when your mother is out!

Mr. Krinklebine the Fish: Out, out, out of this house!
Cat in the Hat: Out? Out? Why, every house should have a cat in it... curled up by the fireplace little warm...
Mr. Krinklebine the Fish: Out, and take those things with you! Out!
Cat in the Hat: Take the things, but who ever heard of a house without things in it?
Mr. Krinklebine the Fish: They're not things, they're... and you're not a cat! Whoever heard of a 6-foot cat?
