The Itchy & Scratchy Movie

Itchy & Scratchy


Nazi Supermen are our Superiors

Synopsis: This episode was only referenced in "Itchy & Scratchy Land". While we don't know for sure if it is an I&S cartoon, we do know that Roger Meyers Sr. produced it in 1938, and was the one exception to his being "beloved by the world."

I Can See Clearly Now My Brain Is Gone

Synopsis: Scratchy is typing on his computer "blah." Itchy sneaks by the back of the computer. Without warning, Itchy opens up the CD drive, cutting off part of Scratchy's head, and then causing his brain to go into the computer by causing the CD Drive to close. Itchy then points to the screen, causing Scratchy to realize with horror that his Brain is now integrated into the computer. Itchy then controls Scratchy's actions by pressing the mouse buttons causing him to poke himself in the eyes in the left-right-left-left-right-left order, then begins to position his finger over the "delete" key. Scratchy tries to tell him not to, but Itchy manages to press it, causing the screen to flash "deleted." Scratchy then screams at the loss of his brain as his head explodes.

Simpsons Episode: Virtual Springfield

Unnamed Cartoons

Simpsons Short: The Bart Simpson Show

Synopsis: Scratchy chases Itchy with an ax until Itchy stops and shows Scratchy a picture of a female cat, which makes Scratchy distracted by the picture and, while getting distracted, Itchy puts a stick of dynamite inside Scratchy's mouth and it explodes, which makes Scratchy's head to be beheaded.

Simpsons Short: Simpson Xmas

Synopsis: The main cartoon episode is unknown, but it is some kind of Christmas theme.

Simpsons Short: TV Simpsons

Synopsis: Scratchy chases Itchy with an ax until Itchy slams a door in front of Scratchy which causes Scratchy to crash into the door and the ax falls onto Scratchy. Then later, it shows Scratchy free falling (It's unknown what Itchy did to Scratchy)

Simpsons Episode: There's No Disgrace Like Home

Synopsis: Scratchy chases Itchy into his mouse hole and gets his head stuck. While Scratchy screams, Itchy puts a bomb inside Scratchy's mouth and it explodes. Itchy then rolls Scratchy's head through his ribcage.

Note: The first appearance of Itchy & Scratchy during the regular season run. Also, the only time they are seen in a Itchy & Scratchy-esque domestic "Cat & Mouse" setting.

Simpsons Episode: Whacking Day

Synopsis: In black-and-white footage, Scratchy is led though a crowd à la Lee Harvey Oswald. Itchy leaps out and shoots Scratchy à la Jack Ruby. We hear someone say "Oh my, God! He’s got a gun!".
Note: Guest Director Oliver Stone

Simpsons episode: Itchy & Scratchy: The Movie

Synopsis: In a World War II-era cartoon, Itchy and Scratchy pummel Adolf Hitler to a fine mess before turning on each other. President Franklin Roosevelt then appears and kicks the remains of Hitler and Scratchy, while Itchy holds up a sign that reads, "save scrap iron".

Simpsons episode: The Girl Who Slept Too Little

Synopsis: Scratchy buys a ticket to see the musical Cats. Usher Itchy seats Scratchy in the front row. After only a few seconds, Scratchy becomes bored and shoots himself, blowing his head off. The audience member next to him, a matronly dog, is covered in blood and shushes Scratchy's headless corpse.

Simpsons Episode: Itchy & Scratchy & Marge

Synopsis: Itchy knocks Scratchy's eyes out with a mallet, and Scratchy kneels and starts feeling around the floor for his eyes. Itchy produces two small bombs (with fuses lit) and puts them in front of Scratchy for him to find. Scratchy touches the bombs, thinks that they are his eyes, and puts them in his eye sockets. Shortly after that, Scratchy is in front of a mirror combing his hair, but when he notices the bombs, Scratchy screams and the bombs explode.

Simpsons Episode: Itchy & Scratchy & Marge

Synopsis: Itchy and Scratchy are at a baseball game. When a Cartoon Squirrel that resembles Marge starts scolding them about violence, they knock the squirrel's head off like a baseball. One of the few cartoons where Scratchy does not become the victim. This episode was inspired after Marge Simpson wrote a letter of protest against cartoon violence to the Itchy and Scratchy cartoonists.

Simpsons Episode: Itchy & Scratchy & Marge

Synopsis: Itchy and Scratchy engage in a duel with each pulling out a larger gun than the other. They expand so much that the guns become bigger than the building they are in, then bigger than North America, then finally bigger than the Earth where Itchy pulls the trigger and shoots Scratchy all the way to the moon.

Simpsons Episode: The Itchy & Scratchy & Poochie Show

Synopsis: Itchy is aiming a bow and arrow at Scratchy, who has an apple on his head. Itchy shoots the arrow and it hits the apple. As Scratchy feels relieved, the arrow is revealed to have pierced a tank of carbonic acid which falls on Scratchy, who is burned to the bones.

Simpsons Episode: The Itchy & Scratchy & Poochie Show

Synopsis: The episode's production code is 2F09 and it is referenced by Doug during a question to June Bellamy at a Q&A panel. Not much is known about the episode itself, but it is referenced that Itchy plays Scratchy's skeleton like a xylophone. Interestingly, 2F09 is the production code for Homer the Great.

Simpsons Episode: You Kent Always Say What You Want

Synopsis: Scratchy is walking down the street and notices a lady cat made out of dynamite. He kisses her, and the lady cat explodes, blowing Scratchy into pieces. Itchy walks out of a shop and starts juggling Scratchy's body parts in front of an audience of animals.
Note: Because of large cutbacks at the network, the normal voice actors quit, and Krusty dubs his voice over the cartoon, sounding very uninterested (mainly due to annoyance at the fact that he has to be affected by the $10,000,000 fine from the FCC due to Kent Brockman's swearing on the air, which was the reason behind the aforementioned large cutbacks). He reckons that Itchy killed Scratchy because Scratchy was messing with [Itchy's] wife. The audience upon watching it were left gaping in shock and horror, with barely any applause.

Simpsons Episode: The Itchy & Scratchy & Poochie Show

Synopsis: Scratchy is part of an ice sculpture. Itchy starts sawing him with a chainsaw, when Poochie (with Homer's voice) shows up to say something important. His mouth doesn't move while a voiceover of Roger Meyers, Jr. saying "My planet needs me" plays. The animation cel of Poochie is lifted off of the scene, followed by a handwritten note that reads, "Poochie died on his way home".

Simpsons Episode: "The Day the Violence Died"

Synopsis: The first new cartoon after Roger Myers Jr.'s studio is back in business. Itchy chases Scratchy in a desert-like landscape until Itchy notices a church and stops to pray. Scratchy meanwhile keeps running until he is squashes by God's foot and ends up in Hell, burning in the Lake of Fire. Meanwhile, Itchy and God (who has the face of a mouse) are watching him from a cloud, shake hands and then wink at the camera.

Simpsons Episode: "A Star is Torn"

Synopsis: Itchy and Scratchy are in a sword fight when Lisa shows up riding Wind Dancer and slices off their heads which Wind Dancer places on her head. Lisa then talks about animal cruelty and to save the violence for cartoons. She then drops Itchy and Scratchy's severed heads into a cauldron full of acid.

Note: This is a dream in which Lisa imagines herself in Itchy & Scratchy after winning the Krusty's Lil' Star Competition.

Simpsons Episode: "Replaceable You"

Synopsis: Itchy is making a Frankenstein-style Scratchy. He stuffs a brain inside, zaps it, shrieks "It's alive!", and shoots its brain out with a gun. He repeats the process again, but the head comes off and lands near a girl mouse picking flowers. Scratchy's head shyly says "Friend?" The girl then stabs Scratchy's eyes with two flowers, which have the words "THE END" on them. Blood comes pouring out while Scratchy's head is screaming.
