Say, shall I wear my white hat

with red stripes,

or my red hat with white?

How I love dressing up

for Halloween night.

Let's take

a spook-tacular ride.

Big fun's where it's at.

Get ready to trick or treat

with the Cat in the Hat.



Come over here

The Cat in the Hat

is about to appear

He's whizzing over

to whisk you away

On a fabulous

journey today

He's coming!

And now he's arrived

in the Thingamajigger

The thing that he drives

He's a cat

and he's oodles of fun

With his hairy helpers,

Thing 2 and Thing 1




It's the Cat in the Hat

All of our adventures

start like that

Wherever you're going,

wherever you're at

The Cat in the Hat

knows a lot about

He knows a lot about,

he knows a lot about

He knows a lot about...


Hey, Sally, check out

this spooky spider I made.

Ooh, scary, Nick.

Say hello to Mr. Bones.

I made him

out of pasta pieces.

Let's stick them

on our haunted Halloween wall.

Move over, Mrs. Cat.

Hope you don't mind spiders,

Mr. Bones.

Our decorations

look great, Nick.

But there's still

one big question.

What are we going to dress up as

for Halloween?

Whatever it is,

nothing too scary.

Did someone say "scary?"

Who said that?

It came from inside

the dress-up trunk.

Who's in there?

Sally, go open it

and see.

Uh, no. It's on your side

of the tree house, Nick.

Okay. Let's look...



Okay, Sally.

On one, two...


It's the Cat!

The Cat in the Hat.

Whoo, you sure gave us

a fright.

I love a good fright,

from things that are scary

and go bump in the night.

That's why I love


With its howlers and shockers

and scary fandangles.

Startlers and frighteners

and fun from all angles.

Some fright are fun,

because they're pretend.

But real frights are scary,

like bumps in the night.

And things that go boom.

I'm frightened

by only one thing:

not having

fun, fun, fun.

Right now, we really need to

choose our Halloween costumes.

Because Halloween's tonight,

and we have to decide.

Hmm, it's a big decision.

I know. We can wear

the same costumes as last year.

You mean these?

Oh, dear.


Lucky for you, I happen to know

a lot about Halloween costumes.

You do?

I do, I do.

The very best costumes

can be found in only one place.

The ooky-makooky closet.


The ooky-makooky closet

has the most splendiferous

dress-up collection ever.

From extra...


To extra small.

The closet has costumes

to fit one and all.


The ooky-makooky closet

sounds great.

Do you really think we'll find

the perfect costumes there?

It's where I found

my new Halloween hat.

BOTH Oh, Cat.

Now, let's go find

the perfect fit

for you two.

Your mother will not mind

at all if you do.

Mom! Mom!

Is it okay for us

to go with the Cat in the Hat

to choose a Halloween costume

from the ooky-makooky closet?

Just be home in time

for trick-or-treating.

We can go! We can go!

I know, I know!

To the Thingamajigger.

Happy Halloween.

Are you ready to go


Not yet, Fish.

But we will be,

as soon as we visit

the ooky-makooky closet

to choose costumes

to dress up in.

Fish do not dress up.

Well, I'm going to be

something big and strong.

And I'm going to be

something silly and fun.

How about you, Cat?

What will you be?

I can tell you,

but then it wouldn't

be a surprise.

Anyplace called


sounds like a place

I'd rather forget.

Where is this kooky closet,




I know it's someplace


I'm sure if we take

a fun-tastical flight,

we'll find it

sooner or later.

Buckle up!

Flick the


Isn't this fun?


Here we go, go,

go, go

On an adventure

The Thingamajigger

is up and away

Go, go, go, go

On an adventure

We're flying with

the Cat in the Hat today

To find a closet

called ooky-makooky

For Halloween costumes

that aren't too spooky

Here we go, go,

go, go

On an adventure

Go, go, go,

go, go

I can't wait to find

the ooky-makooky closet.

So we can dress up

for Halloween.

I hope not as anything

too scary.

Just the thought

makes me shiver.

Don't worry, Fish.


costumes aren't real.

They're just

scary, good fun.

Aren't you frightened

of anything, Cat?

Huh? Who? What, me?

Nothing frightens

the Cat in the Hat.

Not even on Halloween,

the spookiest day of the year?

Especially on Halloween.

I love all things


It's the one day of the year

when all frights are fun.





Halloween's coming

It's coming for you





Shockers and scares

are everywhere.

Big frights

at another night

We would find alarming

On Halloween

we find quite charming

Like finger cookies

And eyebally treats

That are oozy and goozy

but such fun to eat

Like ghosts and ghoulies

That go door to door

Declaring "trick or treat"

Who could ask

for more?

Zombies and zanies

And zonkers off zoos

Bells ringing ding-dong

Then dongers go boom

Halloween takes you

to a place

Where surprises

are in store

Costumes creepy

and candy so dandy

Till your tummies

want no more







Shockers and scares

are everywhere

Eek! Boo!

Aah! Ooh!

Halloween's coming

and it's coming for you

That kooky,

spooky hullabaloo

Halloween's coming

and it's coming...

For you
