After inheriting $3,000,000 from his deceased owner, Sylvester the cat plans to whoop it up with his alley-cat buddies. Alas, Sylvester's spending spree is cut short by the arrival of his new financial advisor Elmer Fudd. Refusing to let Sylvester squander a penny of his inheritance, Elmer tries to convince the spendthrift cat that he should invest his "idle cash" in the American economy, literally putting his money to work for the benefit of everyone. Heir Conditioned is one of three Warner Bros. cartoons underwritten by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation to educate the American public in matters of financial responsibility (the other two Sloan-funded entries are By Word of Mouse and Yankee Dood It; fortunately, this rather smug little economics lesson is redeemed by several hilarious sight gags.
