At the time that the episode was produced, new, more stringent censorship laws had been put in place. As a result, the Fox network tried to stop the writers from including Itchy & Scratchy cartoons in episodes. In response, the writers created this episode, which they decided would be as violent as possible. The network threatened that if the episode was produced, they would cut the Itchy & Scratchy parts out themselves, but relented when David Mirkin
threatened to tell the media. The writers nevertheless promised to try not to overdo the violence. See more

The Season 6 episode "Itchy and Scratchy Land" was heavily censored in Australia, and was not shown in full until 1999. Shots cut included crowds laughing as blood poured over them, Bart smashing a second camera shop window and several cut scenes from when The Simpsons take the 'Log Ride'. About a dozen censored scenes reduced the running time of the episode by two minutes down to 21 minutes. See more
