Artist Bill Mudron created this Doctor Who – Dr. Seuss mash-up called The Cat in the Hat Came Back (eventually).
The piece puts the Eleventh Doctor from Doctor Who (played on the series by Matt Smith) in the role of The Cat In The Hat, the title character of the popular Dr. Seuss tale. The Doctor’s companions Amy and Rory are drawn as Thing 1 and Thing 2, respectively. The scene is a memorable illustration from the Dr. Seuss book, as The Doctor is balancing lots of items, some of which are from the Seuss story (the umbrella, the goldfish bowl), while others are Doctor Who-related, like the TARDIS-themed diary.
Here’s what the artist had to say about the design:
I read a recent criticism of the Moffat-era of Doctor Who being a glorified version of The Cat in the Hat, to which I couldn’t help but think…well….”duh”.
(Though we all know that the Eleventh Doctor is more Peter Pan than anything else, in case all the off-the-cuff remarks about fairytales and not growing up got lost in the bits where an eternally-youthful weirdo shows up to whisk a pajama-clad heroine to a realm where time has no meaning….)
I love this design — It’s two of my favorite things!
