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.
