* GodIsEvil: In the "Itchy & Scratchy" cartoon Itchy prays to God, whom helps him killing off Scratchy and throws the cat off into the eternal pit of Hell fire. Seems very unethical for a Supreme Being. Then again, he appears to be a mouse.

* NationalStereotypes: In reference to ethnic stereotyping in old cartoons Itchy kills off a stereotypically clothed Irishman by sticking him between a trouser press.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: By helping Chester attain the money he was owed for creating Itchy, Bart causes Itchy and Scratchy Studios to go bankrupt and gets his favorite cartoon pulled off the air.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Except for UsefulNotes/TheodoreRoosevelt in the Itchy cartoon.
* ParodyAssistance: That was the real Jack Sheldon as the voice of the Amendment in the ''WesternAnimation/SchoolhouseRock'' parody, "I'm An Amendment to Be."
* PlagiarismInFiction: Roger Meyers, Sr. plagiarized Itchy from Chester J. Lampwick; and Lester and Eliza shown that the U.S. Mail's Mr. ZIP was a plagiarism from a character created by Roger Meyers, Sr. Ironically, Roger Meyers, Jr. points out a number of characters are based on figures from other fiction, just changed to be their own character. Cause that doesn't let his father off the hook for stealing a character that wasn't his.
-->'''Roger Myers, Jr.:''' Animation is built on plagiarism! If it wasn't for ''[[Series/TheHoneymooners The Honeymooners]]'', we would have never had ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones''! If someone hadn't made ''[[Series/ThePhilSilversShow Sergeant Bilko]]'', there'd be no ''WesternAnimation/TopCat''! WesternAnimation/HuckleberryHound, [[BreakingTheFourthWall Chief Wiggum]], WesternAnimation/YogiBear? Hah! Andy Griffith, Creator/EdwardGRobinson, Art Carney.
