Itchy & Scratchy cartoons

Constantly fighting and biting, Itchy & Scratchy are the perfect satire of violent children's cartoons like Tom & Jerry. Throughout The Simpsons' 20-year history, they have faced protests, cancellation, bankruptcy and a host of annoying "friends" including Poochie, Disgruntled Goat and Rich Uncle Skeleton.

Every Itchy and Scratchy episode, including untitled cartoons, is listed here with a description and "storyboards." You can also marvel at the crappy merchandise and other results of selling out in the column on the right.
