Trivia

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 »

Alternate Versions

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 »

The Simpsons don't get much better than this
2 January 2008 | by iksnyzcarSee all my reviews

This has to be one of my favorite episodes. It is from season 6 where the show was really firing on all cylinders.

As you can guess from its title this is another vacation episode where surprise surprise they go to Itchy & Scratchy Land. There are a lot of parodies in this one including Jurasice Park, West World, and The Birds. Itchy & Scratchy Land itself parodies Disney World and Pleasure Island. Lots of classic scenes makes this episode a must see for any Simpsons fan(even though by now I don't think there are any that haven't seen this episode at least a dozen times).

So if you haven't seen this episode yet do yourself a favor and buy Season 6 on DVD.
