* GreenAesop / CatchPhraseToTheMax: GreenAesop[=/=]CatchPhraseToTheMax: Spoofed -- "Always recycle -- '''to the extreme'''!"



* SocietyMarchesOn: "Rest assured that I was on internet within minutes registering my disgust throughout the world." Yes, believe it or not, complaining on the internet is something that only nerds used to do.



* TookTheBadFilmSeriously: In-universe example. Homer tried as hard as he could to make Poochie work, but sadly he just had nothing to work with and the character had already earned everyone's hatred.

* CharacterShilling: Homer suggests doing this as one way to boost Poochie's popularity.

to:

* CharacterShilling: Homer suggests doing this as one way to boost Poochie's popularity. Poochie's debut episode has Itchy and Scratchy doing it as well.
-->'''Scratchy:''' Wow. Poochie is one outrageous dude!\\
'''Itchy:''' He's totally in my face!
* CompletelyMissingThePoint:
** Immediately after Poochie's debut, Nelson declares "that stunk!" Homer still asks and expects praise from everyone else.
** In fact, throughout the entire episode, Homer never understands that everyone but him hates Poochie, even when the evidence is staring him in the face.


Added DiffLines:

* DescriptionCut: After Poochie's bad debut, Marge says the important thing is if the fans like it. Cue to...
-->'''Comic Book Guy:''' Last night's episode of Itchy and Scratchy was, without a doubt, the worst episode ever!

* CatchPhrase: This episode marks the first appearance of what would eventually become Comic Book Guy's signature phrase: "Worst [thing] ever."


Added DiffLines:

* CrossDressingVoices: In-universe, Itchy and Scratchy are both voiced by [[TalkingToHimself the same woman]].


Added DiffLines:

* HypeBacklash: In-universe example - though Poochie's first appearance was highly anticipated by nearly everybody in Springfield, opinions on the character quickly soured after the episode where he first appeared aired.

* TakeThat and BitingTheHandHumor: The entire episode is a burn against TV executives who use cheap gimmicks to keep long-running shows fresh (including putting in committee-created "cool" characters, like Poochie and the Simpsons' unexplained house guest Roy) and the fans who complain when shows either change their dynamic or start to go stale.
** Roy in particular was an explicit reference to Fox at one point having tried to convince the Simpsons writers to add a new character living with the family to "spice up the show".
