    Mike Myers "Dr. Seuss" mechanical pop-up top hat from The Cat in the Hat. (Universal, 2003) Original prop articulating top hat constructed of red and ivory felt over fiberglass shell armature measuring 15 in. tall x 10 in round. The mechanical FX hat is operated by an external tooled aluminum 12.5 in. long hydraulic plunger with air tubing that connects to the hat through the bottom. When the plunger is depressed, it flips the top of the hat up allowing any number of surprises to appear. Mechanical components tested and in working order. This iconic signature costume piece remains in production used fine condition.
