On a boring rainy day, the titular cat barges into the house with the two kids, where he tries to cheer them up by performing all sorts of crazy antics.PlotWhen Sally and Tommy are bored in their house on a rainy day with their mother leaving them, they think there is nothing to do. Suddenly, a six-foot tall cat wearing a hat comes into their house, telling them that even although it's not very sunny that day, there's still ways to have fun. Their talking fish rejects this idea, but the cat tries to calm him by playing a game he calls "Up-Up-Up With a Fish", in which he balances the fish on an umbrella. After getting even more upset, the cat just says that there's nothing to fear and he'll hold him up high while he balances on a ball. He begins to balance various other objects until he finally can't take it anymore and loses control, causing everything to fall down in the process. The fish suddenly falls down into a teapot, with him entirely upset by the cat's antics. Despite being ordered out of the house, he chooses to stay and bring in a red box, carrying two guys he calls Thing One and Thing Two. He lets them out, revealing two short men in red clothing with crazy blue hair. The fish doesn't trust them, but the Cat in the Hat tries to assure "They are here to have fun on this very, very wet day". Upon learning that their form of fun is flying kites indoors, the fish just gets even less trusted that they're being safe. After bumping their kites all over the place, they soon see that their mother is about to get home. In a desperate attempt, the narrator (Tommy) brings out a butterfly net to trap the things. The cat is distraught when he sees the two things trapped under his net and walks out of the house unhappy. Although the kids and the fish are glad to see him gone away, they have no clue how to handle the big mess the cat and the things created. Just then, the cat comes back in with a large red vehicle to pick everything up. He gets all of it cleared and leaves just when their mother walks up to the front door. She then asks them how things went when they were gone, which is something left to the reader to decide how to answer.Characters:• The Cat In The Hat • Sally • Tommy • Sally and Tommy's Mother • The Fish • Thing 1 And Thing 2 • The Purple Bird (running gag) • Horton (cameo) CreditsProject Director: Sam Comstock Executive Producer: David Samuelson Producers:Multimedia Consulting, LLC: Senior Producer: Esther Suzuki Arnold Associate Producer: Stacey Cornely Executive Producer: Teri RousseauLiving Books: Tami Sloan TsarkSound Director: Robert ThomureProduction Coordinators: Production and Animation: Nancy NilsenPreproduction: Cecilia Laureys, Sarah ShenPencil Animators: Don Albrecht, Shawn Brownell, Marcelo Souza, Christine Schnarr, Mark West, Dave Sandberg, Mary Sandberg, Caged Beagle Productions, Inc.Computer Animators: Anita Drieseberg, Mark West, Shawn BrownellComputer Page Assembly: Phillip Bossant of Wolf Hill Studios, Tony MargioniCredits Animator: Don AlbrechtStoryboards & Layouts: Don Albrecht, Jeff Peterson, Eric Schipper, Christine Schnarr, Mark WestBackground Painting & Color Design: Betty Gai, Jennifer ChingInkers: Cheech, Ailish Mullally, Eyeheart Art & Production, Co.Scanning & Coloring: Class6 EntertainmentAnimation Clean-up: John PunsalanComputer Graphic Technicians:Lead Technician: Eric SchipperGraphic Technician: Chris RobertsSupport: Minhee Choe, Robert Hoffman, Warren ScottManager: Rob BellProgrammers: Badi Malik, Jeff Mossberg, Rob Bell, David Lucas, Ed Rose, Glenn AxworthySound Design: Robert ThomureSound Editing: Elizabeth Stuart, Klaudia PromessiAdditional Sound Editing: Bob Marshall, Andrew Roth, Jane Scolieri, Robert Johnson, Patsy RahnMusic Composition and Arrangements: Klaudia Promessi and Robert ThomureAdditional Music: Bob Marshall, Donna Viscuso, Jane ScolieriTitle Theme: Klaudia PromessiCredits Theme: Joey EdelmanControl Panel Choreography and Dance: Mark WestVoice Casting and Direction: Madeleine WildVoice Talent:Cat: Marcus LewisThe Boy: Michael DavorenSally: Brittany LaurenceFish: Ron SeawrightBird: Erika LuckettThings: Madeleine Wild, Ken WinstonMother: Susan Adams-GravesExtra Character Voices: Don Albrecht, Sam Comstock, Elizabeth Stuart, Roy Blumenfeld, Bob Marshall, Gene Hamm, Mike Winston, Nicolle Buckley, Robert JohnsonInstrumentalists:Electronic instruments: Klaudia Promessi, Robert Thomure, Bob Marshall, Jane ScolieriClarinet: Harvey WainapelTrombone: David PromessiDrums: Bruce SpencerPiano: Jan MartinelliKazoo: Erika LuckettGuitar: Robert ThomureDownload this game:
