Did You Know?


According to the storyboard (included as a bonus feature on the "Looney Tunes" DVD set), this cartoon originally was to have had one more scene at the end. As Clyde the cat floats via balloon to "Cat Heaven," the mice are shown inside the house, in front of the fireplace, roasting cheese clumps (shaped like marshmallows) on toothpicks. Clyde is seen through the window, blissfully drifting skyward. See more »

Not my favorite, but a classic for sure
30 October 2003 | by (Kansas City, MO) – See all my reviews

I first saw this cartoon when I was a little kid, and naturally, I had no idea what was going on. I was utterly clueless that Claude the Cat has hypochondria and that Bert & Hubie decide to take advantage of it to their full potential. In a way, the whole cartoon is really sad, and Claude's dream sure has the potential to freak out any young child. Of course, for those of us who do understand hypochondria and know how Claude thinks that he has every disease known to man, it's a laugh riot.
