Goofs

After Maggie hits Homer in the head with the hammer, we see Homer frantically grab a cloth to try to keep his balance. Unfortunately it does no good and he still falls down anyway. Along side he also pulls the green cloth down as well as an open can of red paint that spills. In a close up view we see the red paint pour out and touch Homer's shoe as it goes down the garage drain. The camera then shows an overhead view of the garage and we see the spilled red paint going down the garage drain, but it is nowhere at all near any part of Homer's body. See more »

Very Good Episode!
11 March 2014 | by See all my reviews

The ninth episode in the second season of the Simpsons is a very good episode and has some funny jokes. There are two things I really like here. The first is the reference to Psycho. The very beginning is where that happens and the music and such is spot on. Secondly, I loved the satire on censorship. Censorship has been a big issue and it's nice to see the Simpsons poke fun at it.

In this episode, "Marge and Scratchy and Itchy," Maggie attacks Homer with a mallet and Marge blames the T.V show with Scratchy and Itchy and gets it banned much to the dismay of everyone.

Overall, this is a great episode. I liked how the episode centered on Marge for once and that's a nice change of pace. But once again, a very funny episode. I rate this episode 9/10.
