The first and only film directed by Bo Welch.
There are gajillions of stories of mischief and fun, but to keep things simple, let's start with just one. About a mom and two kids and a house and a hat - that, oddly enough, was worn by a cat. But soon enough we will get to all that.
When one of the Things rides a bicycle down the staircase, you can see a string or cable trailing behind him.
When the Cat and Things are walking down the street at the end of the movie, the credits scroll while the camera pans up to the evening sky, and when it turns into nighttime, the pink clouds, crescent moon, and stars are animated in the style of Seuss's artwork. Twenty seconds of the credits are like this, then the rest of the end credits scroll against a regular black background.
