Steamboat Itchy is a cartoon starring Itchy & Scratchy. Made in 1928. It was the first cartoon to star both Itchy and Scratchy together.

Plot

It is essentially a parody of Steamboat Willie. Itchy (in the role of Mickey Mouse) whistles on a steamboat. Then Scratchy (as Pete) whistles too. Then Itchy shoots Scratchy's legs off at the knees with a Tommy Gun and shoving his head in the furnace. It then ends with an iris on Scratchy's burned head. Than Itchy says "oh me oh my".

Trivia

  • Whilst drawing the Steamboat Itchy sequence, the animators jokingly referred to it as "Steamboat Lawsuit". David Silverman explained that he did not know "why [they] weren't sued because there's a shot right out of Steamboat Willie in [the episode]."[1]
  • This version of Itchy is among the spectators who laugh at young Mr. Burns in Monty Burns' Fleeing Circus.
  • The cartoon made a cameo at the Springfield Drive-In in The Simpsons Road Rage.
