Inspired by Dr. Seuss’s character and created by artist Leo Rijn.
The first in this much anticipated series, The Cat in the Hat debuted in 2006 on live television in New York City to a standing ovation. The Cat in the Hat is unquestionably the most famous and iconic character from Dr. Seuss’s pantheon of creatures.
The August 13, 2007, issue of U.S. News & World Report declared 1957 to be “A Year that Changed America.” The article focused on ten disparate events including one called: The Birth of a Famous Feline. It read in part: “In the 50 years since The Cat in the Hat exploded onto the children’s book scene, Theodor Seuss Geisel has become a central character in the American literary mythology, sharing the pantheon with the likes of Mark Twain and F. Scott Fitzgerald. Of his many imaginative stories, The Cat in the Hat remains the most iconic.”
