- This article is about the Itchy & Scratchy cartoon. For the episode, see Itchy & Scratchy: The Movie.
The Itchy & Scratchy Movie is an animated film-within-a-show based on the cartoon The Itchy & Scratchy Show. The film features a skit of Itchy killing Scratchy that can't be shown on TV. The movie was at the cinemas for eight months and won nine Academy Awards. Bart Simpson was the only kid in Springfield who didn't see the film during its original run as a punishment for neglecting to babysit Maggie which lead him to be punished for endangerment of a child. He finally sees it with Homer in 2032 as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, a title he earns from the discipline and work ethic Homer began instilling in him all those years ago.
Is the promotional trailer for "The Itchy and Scratchy Movie" (Movie plot, see below) Itchy shaves Scratchy fur off, scribbles his face with a marker and blows his brain out. Also shown some "scenes" from the movie: Itchy has Scratchy tied to a log on a conveyor belt, moving toward a circular saw; and Itchy dress up some dynamite as a "female cat", who Scratchy falls in love with at the bar. Then Scratchy blows up and dies.
Itchy & Scratchy: The Movie
Only a short scene that runs very fast is shown: Scratchy is tied to a train track by Itchy. Itchy tries to get into a train to run over Scratchy, but must get a degree to ride first. The result? Itchy goes off to train-driving school, studies madly, passes, receives a degree, attends the achievement celebration, applies for a job at the Union Pacific (the most mentioned railroad in the series) and at last hops into the train just to run over Scratchy. Scratchy quickly tries to untie himself, though does not manage in time and is run over. All that remains is Scratchy's severed arms still trying to untangle the rope.
Itchy & Scratchy: The Movie 3D
Itchy & Scratchy had another film in 3D.
Itchy & Scratchy: The Movie 2
A possibly different movie was used as the intro for "The Simpsons Movie".
As astronauts, Itchy and Scratchy have landed on the moon. There, Itchy impales Scratchy several times with the flag they were going to plant on the surface and cracks his air helmet open, causing Scratchy to apparently die of asphyxiation. Back on Earth, Itchy is praised as a hero for being the first mouse on the moon and inexplicably becomes President, with Hillary Clinton as Vice President. It has been made apparent that Scratchy died on his own and Itchy tried to save him. However, Itchy discovers that Scratchy is still alive and going to tell everyone the truth. After desperately thinking (in scenes that resemble John F. Kennedy during the Cuban Missile Crisis), Itchy decides to launch an "accidental" missile launch towards the moon. As Scratchy screams, all the missiles enter his mouth, save for one which reveals a small boot-like contraption inside it and kicks him, causing him to explode.
