* AssPull: PlayedForLaughs. Poochie is [[ShooOutTheNewGuy sloppily killed off]] in one cartoon, with a crude movement of cels and stuck on note saying he died on the way to his home planet. Everyone hated Poochie so much they didn't care, they ''erupted in applause''. [[invoked]]

** Roger Myers Sr is a very unflattering portrayal of WaltDisney. The backstory of the I&S studio is a mishmash of conspiracy theories about the Disney Company.

''The Itchy and Scratchy Show'' is a [[ShowWithinAShow Show Within a Show WITHIN a Show]] on ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''[[note]]which itself was a Show Within a Show, from ''The Tracey Ullman Show''[[/note]]. It passes itself off as a cat and mouse chase, based on the old cartoon shorts of ''WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry'' and ''WesternAnimation/HermanAndKatnip'' (mostly the latter). The cartoons are usually aired during ''The Krusty the Klown Show''.

** "Burning Down The Mouse" (shown as part of "Homer Goes to College") is apparently the only aired episode where Scratchy wins, by blowing Itchy up with a large arsenal of explosives. Unfortunately, the viewers never get to see the end, because one of Homer's college roommates who are crashing at his house unplugs the TV and doesn't plug it back in until it's over, where the TV just turns back on in time to see a huge mushroom cloud and "The End" superimposed over the shot (followed by Krusty declaring that "They'll never let us air ''that'' again! Not in a million years!").

* HollywoodAcid: Often employed. Always used to reduce Scratchy to a skeleton.

* HollywoodAcid: Often employed. Always used to reduce Scratchy to a skeleton. A glaring example of this for those who know chemicals is the one in which Itchy {{William Tell|ing}}s Scratchy, hits the apple, but the arrow punctures a hole into the large tank labeled "Carbolic Acid" that Scratchy was standing right next to, since carbolic acid is a) solid at room temperature and b) not really all that acidic (it's technically an alcohol).



* WilliamTelling:
** Itchy does it to Scratchy once. He hits the apple, but the arrow punctures a hole into the large tank of carbolic acid that Scratchy was standing right next to.
** Doubles as another case of HollywoodAcid, since carbolic acid is a) solid at room temperature and b) not really all that acidic (it's technically an alcohol).

Added DiffLines:

* SuicideAsComedy: In one episode, rather than Itchy kill Scratchy, we have Scratchy attend a presentation of ''Theatre/{{Cats}}'', where Itchy is an usher. But Scratchy finds it so boring that he ends up blowing his brains out.

Added DiffLines:

* MadeOfBologna: Played with. The main characters are sometimes depicted made solely of red bologna, sometimes made of red bologna that can bleed, and sometimes actual organs are shown. This [[DependingOnTheWriter depends]] on how gruesome the scene was scripted.

* OffWithHisHead: It might as well be Itchy's favorite method of taking out Scratchy. Whether it actually kills Scratchy or [[OffWithHisHead not]] varies.
