The Cat in the Hat is a 2.5D platformer based around the terrifying Mike Myers film, and not the original book.


Unused Dialogue
The Cat and his friends had an awful lot more to say than what was said.

Unused Music

This unused, vaguely Gaelic-sounding song is present in the files for the Windows version of the game, simply named "cith", presumably standing for Cat in the Hat. Its intended purpose is totally unclear. Given that it uses a theremin, it may be related in some way to Attic Adventure, since that's the only other track in this game to use one.

Unused Graphics

Unused Test Menu


A small level menu with a test level remains in the game, although it doesn't work anymore. The Test 3 level is no longer on the disc.

Test (PC)

Within the PC version is a completely different test level. This level is extremely basic, with two small platforms, a poodle enemy, a goo machine and an untextured background. No music plays

Bonus levels (PC)

In the PS2 and Xbox versions, every level has a bonus level once the player finds all four keys, where the player has to go through a bonus level to collect more magic and collect a gem to access "Mystic Mirror". These bonus levels were cut out of the PC version however, they do still all exist within the game files and can be loaded into. They are overall less complete than their console versions, lacking any giant obstacles the player has to avoid and lacking the collectibles which are also in the console version.

Cooker (PC)

To do:
Try and access "these following levels".

Within the PC version is a level referred to as "Cooker". It is listed as the 4th level in the game and it is separate from "Boiler Bonnanza" (listed as Level 6) and "BBQuinn" (listed as Boss 2). Trying to load into "Cooker" crashes the game. The level only has one area and the boss theme plays. While this may suggest that this was originally a boss level, the filesize for the levels assets are much closer to the main levels in the game, so it is also possible that this was intended to be a normal level.

Toys (PC)

"Toys" is overall a similar story to "Cooker". It is listed as the 10th level in the game and it is separate from "Quinn in Toyland" (listed as Boss 3). Much like "Cooker", " Toys" only has one area, the boss theme plays and trying to load into it crashes the game. Its file size is actually smaller than "Quinn in Toyland", suggesting that it is an earlier version of the boss.
