The cartoon, titled "The Battle of Slaughter-loo", features Itchy and Scratchy fighting with their respective armies of mice and cats. However, the cartoon was edited for prison viewing, so [[https://frinkiac.com/gif/S15E16/532157/533825/ the film abruptly cuts out at the first clash]] and returns with Itchy's victory speech at the end followed by two mice doing ThatRussianSquatDance, skipping the actual violence... which, judging from said speech, was such a spectacle, it was even in 3D.
