Cartoon Cats

scratchy the CatScratchy the Cat - Co-star of the violent cartoon cat & mouse (a la 'Tom and Jerry') show seen on "The Krusty the Klown Show," a show-within-a-show on the situation cartoon comedy THE SIMPSONS/FOX/1989+.

Two of Itchy & Scratchy's biggest fans were Bart and Lisa Simpson who lived in the town of Springfield. It seems the more violent "The Itchy & Scratchy Show" got, the more Bart and Lisa laughed at their antics.

A typical moment of mayhem occurred on the episode "Why Do Fools Fall in Lava," when Scratchy the cat pays $5.00 to bungy jump into a volcano. Subsequently, Itchy the mouse cuts open Scratchy's stomach, ties his intestines to a bridge and then pushes Scratchy into the volcano. As Scratchy dangles helpless over bubbling lava, Itchy pours gasoline into Scratchy's intestines causing him to explode. Some fun, Huh?

Later in the series, it was revealed that the idea for the Itchy and Scratchy characters (initially stolen by Roger Myer Sr.) were actually the brainchild of one Chester J. Lampwick (voice of Kirk Douglas).

Bart & Lisa's mother, Marge Simpson once compiled a list of the violent acts in just one episode of "Itchy & Scratchy" They list showed: 3 Cats blown up, 1 Mice lunched, 2 Dogs tricked, 2 Gophers buried alive, 3 Eyes knocked out, 2 Disemboweling, and 1 Brains slammed in car door.

THEME SONG
