There's A Movie Called "The Grinch Grinches The Cat In The Hat" And I Just Think Everyone Needs To Be Aware Of It

The Cat in the Hat is kind of a jerk, TBH.

We all know and love the Dr. Seuss characters the Grinch and the Cat in the Hat.

CBS

Maybe you remember them from your childhood library or the various animated specials. Maybe you remember that weirdly dark Grinch Halloween special. Or maybe seeing Mike Myers play a talking cat scarred you for life.

DreamWorks

SERIOUSLY, WHO OKAYED THAT MOVIE??!

But did you know there's a CROSSOVER between the Cat in the Hat and the Grinch?! There's an animated special called The Grinch Grinches the Cat in the Hat and it's a WILD ride.

ABC

Basically, the Cat in the Hat is trying to have a picnic when he's interrupted by the grumpy ol' Grinch, who's mad that the Cat is blocking his way.

ABC

Some of us have JOBS to get to, Cat!

Anyways, the Grinch and the Cat get into it and the Cat accidentally insults him by calling him "Mr. Greenface." As you can imagine, the Grinch does not take that well.

ABC/Nintendo

So to get revenge, the Grinch introduces the Cat to a new evil device he invented called the "Vacusound Sweeper." The sweeper steals voices and scrambles them into evil sounds.

ABC

The Grinch🤝 Ursula

Stealing voices as a hobby

The Grinch then launches into a very strange musical number.

ABC

But the movie REALLY gets wild when the Cat forces the Grinch into a psychiatric session to try and uncover the source of his evil nature. Yes, I'm serious.

ABC

Fed up, the Grinch alters his invention and somehow uses it to launch the Cat into another dimension. A really TERRIFYING dimension.

ABC

WHAT IS HAPPENING???

But the Cat refuses to give up. In fact, he says he's finally found the root of the Grinch's problems. He gathers the other townspeople, proclaiming that they must "ungrinch the Grinch."

Nickelodeon

For a brief moment, I was expecting them to kill the Grinch. But nope! Instead, they just go to his house and sing this creepy song:

ABC

And, wow, I guess the Grinch really misses his mom. Because when he hears this song, he LOSES it.

ABC

And the Grinch's tears form a puddle that turns into...his mother.

ABC

And then the puddle starts TALKING!!!

ABC

I am not okay with this.

I am not making this dialogue up.

ABC

And now the Grinch is apparently cured. The movie ends with the Cat gleefully proclaiming, "and there was peace in his heart and peace in the land."

ABC

All I have to say is...WOW, that was a lot.
