Dr Seuss characters

Theodor Seuss Geisel (May 2, 1904 – September 24, 1991), better known by his pen name Dr. Seuss, was an American author, illustrator, and cartoonist. He is most widely known for children's books such as Green Eggs and Ham, The Cat in the Hat, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, and the titles of several animated films based on his work.


Sometimes it’s all in the name—although not every classic character was given one. So among these you won’t find the grumpy-but-eventually-grateful chap who doesn’t like spinach-colored breakfast, for instance. Or the young fellow who narrates The Butter Battle Book. Or the boy who encounters (with sister Sally) the Cat in the Hat (nor, for that matter, the uber-responsible goldfish who lives with them). But it’s not always about the name. Sometimes it’s all about the appearance (for instance, Thing One and Thing Two). Often it’s the attitude—hello, Grinch. Usually, it’s a combination of all three. Here’s how we’ve ranked them: (Source: thewhynot100.blogspot.com)

It is expected for a writer who wrote the famous “Cat in the Hat” to have a pet. However, Dr. Seuss was more of a dog person.

While the Things are perhaps the antagonists of The Cat in the Hat, they’re also an iconic favorite to readers everywhere. (Source:www.hookedtobooks.com))

Dressed in his famous red and white striped hat and bright red bow tie, the Cat brought a day of fun and mischief to the children’s home.

The Cat in the Hat is one of the most iconic characters in Seuss history. He is a favorite to many who read his story long before they try bigger reads.

The USP of any Dr. Seuss book is the unique characters featured in them. Geisel created the characters which had either bizarre looks or personalities, or a combination of both. Characters such as the Lorax, Grinch, Horton the Elephant, Cat in the Hat, and Yertle the Turtle have captured the imaginations of children and adults across the world, and some of these powerful characters have even been featured on the silver screen.

The Cat in the Hat is a comical character in his books ‘The Cat in the Hat’ and ‘The Cat in the Hat Comes Back’. He is as tall as an average human, slight in build and has a slightly protruding belly. Although his face is always white different versions of the books and movies show his belly to be white, black, or dark gray. He is found to be wearing a red and white striped top hat, white gloves, and a red bow tie. The cat has a unique personality like many characters in books written by Seuss. He is a little eccentric, slightly proud creature who almost seems oblivious to the chaos and carnage created by him. Any trouble caused by him stems from good intentions of trying to cheer up the children in the story. He usually rectifies all his mistakes by the end, which might lead readers to think that he could be kind-hearted in nature. (Source: penlighten.com)
