The Hypo-Chondri-Cat is a 1949 Warner Bros. Merrie Melodies short, released on April 15, 1950, directed by Chuck Jones and written by Michael Maltese. The title can be seen as a simple play on "hypochondriac".
Hubie and Bertie take shelter in a house, but are shortly confronted by Claude Cat. When Claude Cat passes an open window, the draft hits him and Claude fears he'll catch a cold and immediately grabs some pills and medicine. The two mice see this as an opportunity to dispose of Claude. They trick him into thinking he is very sick, then they pretend to perform surgery on him until he faints. When Claude comes to, they convince he's dead and now an angel and they send him floating on a balloon to "Cat Heaven".
