A wonderful morph scene highlights The Hypo-Chondri-Cat starring the mind-game playing mice, Hubie and Bertie. They’ve convinced Claude Cat to let them operate on him. The cat starts hallucinating. A needle and thread turn into Claude’s bed (changing colours along the way). The artwork tells the story.
Ben Washam, Lloyd Vaughan, Phil Munroe and Ken Harris get screen credit in the 1950 Warners release by the Chuck Jones unit. The story is from the mind of Mike Maltese. If only Jones had made Tom and Jerry cartoons like this instead of the facial expression pose-fest he gave audiences in the ‘60s, what a treat it would have been for theatre audiences.
