The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About Christmas! Holiday DVD Review + Giveaway


'Twas the day before Christmas and all through the yard
The Cat in the Hat and his guests partied hard.
When the party was over, and the guests all departed
One poor baby reindeer was left broken-hearted!


So begins the thrilling new tale from NCircle Entertainment - released just in time for the holidays - The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About Christmas!  This fun new animated adventure features Martin Short as the voice of the Cat in the Hat and is sure to delight the smallest of the small and the tallest of the tall - and everyone else in between.

Head off on an adventure with the Cat and his friends Nick and Sally as they try to help a little lost reindeer called Ralph find his way home in time for Christmas.  Their journey takes them around the world - all the way to Freezeyourknees Snowland.  The bunch runs into an awful lot of trouble when their Thinga-ma-jigger breaks down during the journey, but they are given assistance by a whole realm of adventurous animals to help them on their way.

Our Thoughts: Lincoln (21 months) has a very select list of movies that he will watch - mostly involving Winnie the Pooh or anything that features a truck - so I was curious if this new story would interest him.  And I was very pleasantly surprised!  Maybe it's just that the Cat's Thinga-ma-jigger resembles a truck, or the assortment of animals that pop up throughout the feature, but it held his attention for quite awhile and he really seemed to enjoy it! 

A good number of classic characters from Dr. Seuss' Cat in the Hat stories are featured - notably Thing 1 and Thing 2 and the Fish in the Pot.  For kids who are fans of the book, this DVD is a great way to bring the characters to life in a festive holiday setting!  The story paces well and features delightful songs throughout.  I think we will be returning to this movie for many years to come.

You can find The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About Christmas on Amazon, NCircle Entertainment, or a local retailer such as Target, Walmart, Kmart and Toys R Us!
