The cat in the hat meme’s origin is actually from the year 1957. This meme is actually from a book. It’s a simple story for children about a cat who befriends two children and his companions. Later in 2003, a film was also made, based on this very book. The famous actor Myke Myers stars in the film. The book was good but the movie received bad ratings, and a low score on imdb and rotten tomatoes. Since this book is old, the new generation came to know about the book from the meme. This is a template where a happy kid is sitting & the hat with character comes and tries to smash him a baseball bat from behind.
THE SPREAD OF CAT IN HAT MEME
Since the movie got a low score and rating and was not very popular, people did not know about the origin of the meme template. The book came in 1957 so a very few people knew about this. Despite of all this, the meme actually got many entries on the web. A page named cat in the hat was added to the website of Dr. Seuss. Later in the October of 2012, a facebook page named cat in the hat was also made which got over 92 thousand likes with in 6 months. Later, a page for this meme was also created on the TV Tropes website. The nostalgia critic also mentioned this film and it gained a whooping 2.5 million views and around 9k comments in the next four years.
