* InflatingBodyGag: In "Spherical on 34th Street", Itchy inflates Scratchy with a tank of hydrogen. Then he shoots a flaming arrow at the ballooned cat, making him explode in a giant fireball.



* {{Retraux}}: Itchy and Scratchy are obvious homages to the violent cartoons from UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation like ''WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry'' and ''Herman and Katnip''.

* VitriolicBestBuds: Scratchy continues to hang around with Itchy, regardless of the constant attacks.


Added DiffLines:

* WithFriendsLikeThese: Scratchy seems to consider Itchy to be his friend, even though all Itchy ever does is torture, mutilate, and outright murder the cat for no reason outside of [[ForTheEvulz sadistic amusement]].

** Scratchy's debut cartoon "That Happy Cat" and Itchy's debut "Steamboat Itchy" have an art style reminiscent of Disney's early work, especially since "Steamboat Itchy" is an obvious parody of "Steamboat Willie".

** Scratchy's debut cartoon "That Happy Cat" and Itchy's debut "Steamboat Itchy" "Manhattan Madness" have an art style reminiscent of Disney's early work, especially since the first cartoon in which they're paired together, "Steamboat Itchy" Itchy", is an obvious parody of "Steamboat Willie".



** In the show's history, early cartoons were fairly routine. In their first appearance in a Tracey Ullman-era short called "The Bart Simpson Show" Itchy places a firecracker in Scratchy's mouth; in their first series' appearance (Season 1's "There's No Disgrace Like Home"), the show is simply another "place a bomb in Itchy's mouth and watch the explosion" cartoon. Future cartoons would be more detailed.

* 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.

* AchievementsInIgnorance: In a Valentines' Day episode, Itchy rips Scratchy's heart off but the latter remains alive until he reads a newspaper headline saying he needs a heart to live.

''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!").
