Modern Itchy & Scratchy Movies
Itchy and Scratchy: The Movie
- Little of the plot of this movie is explained, there are only random
acts of mindless violence involving a rather large train.
Itchy and Scratchy 2 - Coincidentally,
this movie is found in the second issue of "Itchy and Scratchy: The Comic".
The censors have deemed Itchy and Scratchy too violent. In an effort to
appease the censors, the next I&S movie is written as a romantic comedy,
in which Scratchy falls in love with Dorothy La Mew. On the set, Itchy
does his best to make the movie violent (with the help of a serial killer
and some rather angry soldier ants), but he fails. The movie is previewed
as a romance and flops terribly. The night before the grand opening, Itchy
switches the film with a violent version. Needless to say, it is wildly
successful. Outside, the anti-violence protesters go ape and attack Scratchy
for his profuse bleeding throughout the movie. Interestingly, this story
is written by Dan Castellaneta (the voice of Krusty) and his wife.
Itchy & Scratchy Episodes
Bang the Cat Slowly -
Scratchy is having a birthday party. Itchy produces a box and puts a lit
bomb in it, wraps it, grabs Scratchy's tongue (easily, since Scratchy's
expression is wide-eyed and open-mouthed in anticipation of his obvious
fate) and uses it as wrapping ribbon.
He then pulls it back and snaps it into Scratchy's mouth, where it
lodges in Scratchy's throat. Scratchy blinks and the bomb explodes. Scratchy's
head and his party hat are twirling separately in the air. The party
hat lands (cone up) on Scratchy's shoulders, and Scratchy's
head comes down on it with enough force to push the conical party hat through
the entire head.
Burning Love -
Scratchy reclines in a hammock. Itchy shoots him with a flaming arrow.
Scratchy jumps around on fire, screaming.
Cat Splat Fever - While "There's
No Place Like Home" plays as background music, we see Scratchy in the bedroom,
in which there are separate beds labeled "Itchy" and "Scratchy" and a picture
of the two on the wall. Scratchy finds a note on Itchy's bed: "Goodbye
Cruel World -- Itchy" and looks outside just in time to see Itchy jump
into a well. He runs out and dives into the well himself, presumably
to rescue Itchy, who is sitting on a ledge watching Scratchy fall to the
bottom. Once at the bottom, Scratchy falls into the jaws of an alligator,
who chews him up. A ghostlike
Scratchy-angel, complete with wings and halo, ascends through the well
until level with Itchy. Itchy levels a revolver at Scratchy's head
and blasts it. After flattening
out briefly, Scratchy's head recovers its shape, but with a large hole.
Scratchy glances upward in time to see his halo depart, then falls back
downward. Itchy waves goodbye. After a brief shot of Lisa laughing,
we see the closing card: Itchy's and Scratchy's faces with a yellow ribbon
and the subtitle "Dedicated to Timmy O'Toole."
Field of Screams - Scratchy
and Scratchy Jr. [!] are enjoying a game of catch in a field of wheat.
Itchy and Itchy Jr. [!!] arrive on the scene in a thresher and run over
Scratchy & Son. The next thing we see is Itchy and Itchy Jr.
playing their own game of catch with a cat head.
Flay Me To The Moon - The title
card shows an American-flag-wielding Itchy chasing Scratchy. Scratchy is
reading the newspaper, the banner headline of which says "MOON SHOT TODAY."
Itchy appears at the window and grabs an oblivious Scratchy's tongue and
runs with it . . . to the launching pad of the aforementioned moon
shot. He ties it securely around one of the rocket's tail fins and
awaits the launch. The rocket blasts off and Scratchy's tongue unreels
for the entire 250,000 mile trip. The rocket makes several quick
orbits, leaving Scratchy's tongue in a Gordian knot around the moon. Scratchy's
tongue exerts enough of a pull on the moon to bring it hurtling toward
earth -- specifically, Scratchy's house.
Scratchy notices something is wrong, goes to the window to look, and sees
the rapidly growing apparent size of the moon. He screams, runs about
with arms flailing and finally heads for the closet to hide. The moon
more than adequately flattens Scratchy's house. You then see a control
room full of Itchies, watching on a big monitor, cheering and popping
champagne. Mission: successful.
[God vs. Scratchy]
- Itchy prays and God squashes Scratchy with his big sandal -o- death.
Hold That Feline - Itchy tees
up a football-bomb and kicks it. Scratchy catches it just before
it explodes, leaving a huge crater.
Several HUGE football-jerseyed cats [?] pile on to the crater, presumably
I'm Getting Buried in the Morning
- The title is a reference to the
show tune "I'm Getting Married in the Morning"
from "My Fair Lady".
guest director: Oliver Stone
Kitchen Cut-Ups -
Itchy and Scratchy are pounding each other with meat tenderizers.
Next we see Scratchy pinned to the counter while Itchy tries to stab him
with a butcher knife (note the cat-cutlet butcher's chart on the
all in the background). Finally, Itchy connects and Scratchy screams.
[After a brief cut away from the TV] We then briefly see Itchy wielding
an electric mixer.
Last Traction Hero - Scratchy
lifts weights to get huge only to be dismembered by Itchy.
Let Them Eat Scratchy - Itchy
cuts off Scratchy's head with a guillotine. Scratchy's head rolls
to a stop (the expression on Scratchy's face here is priceless) and Itchy
stuffs a bomb into his mouth. After the explosion, all that's left
is a cat skull.
Little Barbershop of Horrors
- Scratchy walks into a barber shop where Itchy is waiting. He cuts off
the top of his head and gradually works his way down. Then he throws some
acid on a towel and burns off his skin. It won a cartoon grammy.
O Solo Meow - Scratchy is seated
at a table in a restaurant. Itchy, the waiter, arrives with a spaghetti
platter which contains a bomb. Scratchy, oblivious to the bomb, twirls
the spaghetti and bomb together on his fork and eats it. While slurping
the spaghetti strands, he sees the fuse (in place of the last spaghetti
strand) burn down. Realizing what has happened, he frantically jumps
around screaming (similar movements to "Burning Love") and runs through
a door to the outside. Unfortunately, the door is too low, and Scratchy
is decapitated on the way. His body explodes outside, leaving a smoking
hole. A pink dog-busboy comes along and trips over Scratchy's
head, causing all his dishes to crash to the floor. Cut to Itchy,
who is giggling.
Porch Pals - The first "kinder,
gentler" Itchy and Scratchy production. Itchy and Scratchy are sitting
in rocking chairs on a porch with a table holding a pitcher of lemonade
Messenger of Death - Scratchy
answers a knock at the door, looks down and sees Itchy, who draws a bazooka,
aims directly at Scratchy's head, and fires. Scratchy's body is left
intact, but his head is a skull. Zoom back to see the TV in
the Simpsons' living room, from which we see Scratchy's skull fall off
his neck (a couple of vertebrae still visible)
My Dinner with Itchy -
Itchy and Scratchy are having dinner in a fancy restaurant. Itchy
gives Scratchy a carafe of green acid, which Scratchy (presumably thinking
it is wine) ingests. When he looks down to see his skeletal insides,
Itchy throws the rest of the acid into his face. Scratchy screams
and runs, blinded, out of the restaurant and into the street, where he
is run over by a bus.
From a Mall
Silence of the Silencers - St.
Valentine's Day Massacre theme: Itchy is in a police uniform, slapping
his club into his palm, while several tough-looking, hoodlum- dressed cats
are lined up against a wall. No sign of Scratchy. Itchy, completely
without provocation, pulls out a Thompson .45 caliber submachine gun and
opens up on the unsuspecting gangland cats. As blood flows liberally,
Itchy begins blasting "THE END" into the wall with bullet holes. Before
he can finish, one more hapless cat wanders onto the scene (one guess who).
Itchy blasts the "D" through him, he falls, and "THE END" remains on the
wall, with the "D" in red. "It's funny because it's true"
Sundae, Bloody Sundae -
Scratchy sits down at a soda fountain, but tries to run when he sees that
the soda jerk is Itchy. Itchy grabs him and stuffs him into a metal
shake container, and puts it under the mixer. Voila: Scratchy puree.
Freeze framers: step through the part where Scratchy reconstitutes himself!
(He drinks himself, through the straw, back into shape.)
