* ForTheEvulz: Most of Bart's behaviour up until Homer takes his ticket is just... because. This includes tearing up the carpets, hitting ketchup packets with a hammer, and stealing Abe's teeth.

** Disney and [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Looney Tunes]]/[[MerrieMelodies Merrie Melodies]] cartoons: Much of the backstory of Itchy and Scratchy dates back to the late 1920s, with the introduction of "Steamboat Itchy" (a parody of "WesternAnimation/SteamboatWillie" the first WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse cartoon). As the backstory moves to the World War II-era, the anti-UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler cartoons are similar to those pitting the good guys of various Disney and Warner Bros. cartoons produced during that time.
