Ultra-violent cartoon-within-a-cartoon featured on The Simpsons. A parody of old Tex Avery/Tom and Jerry cartoons; stars Itchy, a sadistic mouse, and Scratchy, the perennially shot, stabbed, mutilated, dismembered, vaporized cat. In the world of The Simpsons, the cartoons appear on the Krusty the Clown Show.

The first Itchy cartoon was Manhattan Madness, featuring Itchy putting Teddy Roosevelt through an old-fashioned Laundry press. It was done entirely by Chester J. Lampwick. The first Scratchy cartoon was That Happy Cat, featuring Scratchy walking down the sidewalk, smiling and whistling. The first cartoon that teamed the two up was Steamboat Itchy, where Itchy kills Scratchy by sticking his head in the fire.

The first film featuring Scratchy was That Happy Cat, which showed the feline superstar walking a few steps down a sidewalk. The film did poorly.
