Storyline

During Parent-Teacher Night at school, Ms. Krabappel tells Marge she is troubled by Bart's increasingly demonic behavior. She urges Homer and Marge to be more strict with Bart when it comes to discipline. They try out Krabappel's advice when Bart damages Grampa's dentures in his latest household antics and ground him from supper. Bart realizes he needs to change, but when Homer comes into his room with pizza, he decides he can get away with anything. However, Bart eventually presses his luck. One day when he is asked to watch Maggie, she wanders off and knocks the car in gear, crashing it into Springfield Prison (resulting in a massive jailbreak). This time, Homer decides he needs to be severe with Bart: He can never watch the soon-to-open "The Itchy and Scratchy Movie," a movie that has seen a massive advertising blitz in Springfield. Bart forlornly watches a long line for the movie extend past his house, and as the months pass, he finally realizes he needs to change. Homer tells him...

Trivia

When Lisa returns from the movie, Bart asks her how it was. After initially saying it was bad to spare Bart's feelings, Bart prods her into telling him how she really felt. During her brief but glowing review, she mentions the guest voices by mentioning, "Dustin Hoffman, Michael Jackson... They didn't use their real names, but you knew it was them." This is a fun reference to the actual series, and the two guest stars who did not use their real names. Michael Jackson used "John Jay Smith," and Dustin Hoffman was credited as "Sam Etic" in his appearance. See more »

Goofs

In the "Itchy and Scratchy beating up Hitler" cartoon, Franklin D. Roosevelt shows up to kick Hitler's body. While FDR was paraplegic, this fact was downplayed or ignored in popular media portrayals (and it's a humorous cartoon anyway). See more »

Quotes

Homer: If you don't start making more sense, we're going to have to put you in a home.
Grampa: You already put me in a home.
Homer: Then we'll put you in the crooked home we saw on 60 Minutes.
Grampa: [cowering] I'll be good.

Another Great Episode!
3 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the sixth episode of the fourth season of the Simpsons and once again, we have gotten ourselves another fine episode. I liked the simplicity of the plot and I also loved the jokes of the film. My favorite joke is still relevant today and that is the cost of going to the movie theater and buying all of our snacks for a million bucks. I also liked the historical jokes, especially the one involving "Steamboat Willie."

In this episode, "Itchy & Scratchy: The Movie," as usual, Bart is up to no good as he pulls prank after prank. During a parent-teacher conference, Marge is notified of Bart's poor behavior. As punishment, Bart is banned from seeing the new movie based on his favorite cartoon despite everyone in Springfield seeing it numerous times.

Overall, this is an excellent episode that has such a simple story and moral themes. Remember if you don't watch the violent Itchy and Scratchy, you will most likely become a Supreme Court justice. A very solid, funny episode. I rate this episode 9/10.
