Hi-de-ho, fellow fans of all things animated! This is your host OutOfOdor again with another Cartoon Discussion of the Week, hopefully with more activity than last time!! Anyway, let's get on with this week's discussion:

https://www.b98.tv/video/hypo-chondri-cat/
"The Hypo-Chondri-Cat"
Studio: Warner Bros.
Release Date: Apr. 15, 1950 (according to the Big Cartoon Database)
Direction: Chuck Jones
Story: Mike Maltese
Animation: Ken Harris, Lloyd Vaughan, Ben Washam, Phil Monroe
Layouts: Robert Gribborek
Backgrounds: Philip De Guard
Music: Carl Stalling
Voices: Mel Blanc (Hubie, Claude Cat), Stan Freberg (Bertie)
Summary: Hubie and Bertie trick neurotic Claude Cat into thinking he's about to pass away, and that he requires the mice's help to live.

Out of the six or seven cartoons Chuck Jones directed with Hubie and Bertie, this one's my favorite. My favorite part would probably be the extended sequence in which the mischievous pair convince Claude that he's dead, eventually sending off a cliff, ascending to "Cat Heaven" to a celestial arrangement of "Aloha Oe". The really cool nightmare sequence where we see what's going on in Claude's mind, too, has to be mentioned, animated by Lloyd Vaughan. The eerie theremin (?) music by Stalling helps an awful lot.

Until next week, this is OutOfOdor saying "Farewell, you earthly creatures."

Discuss away!!
