|Here's a look at a few sports-related episodes of Bart Simpson's favorite cartoon, "The Itchy and Scratchy Show":
Field of Screams: Scratchy and his son are enjoying a game of catch in a wheatfield when a combine driven by Itchy and his son comes bearing down on them. Blood splashes up on the windshield. Afterward, Itchy and his son play catch with Scratchy's head.
The 100-yard gash: Scratchy lines up for the 100-yard dash, but Itchy nails Scratchy's tail to the track as the race starts. Held back by the nail, finally Scratchy's skeleton bursts out of his skin and his flesh and muscles fall to the ground. Scratchy's skeleton wins the gold medal and appears on a Wheaties box. The cartoon closes with the message "Good luck to all our athletes, from Itchy and Scratchy, the official animated cat-and-mouse team of the 1984 Olympics."
Kitty Kitty Bang Bang: Itchy catches Scratchy's tongue in the automatic ball return. He then lights the fuse on a bomb and rolls it down the lane. Scratchy tries to free himself by cutting his tongue with a hacksaw, but the bomb returns and explodes before he can escape.
The Last Traction Hero: Scratchy works out with a barbell set. Buffed-up, he flexes for Itchy, who tries to pop Scratchy's muscles like balloons. When the pinprick has no effect, Itchy pokes his entire chest. Scratchy bleeds heavily and sits down. Armed with a chainsaw, Itchy slices off Scratchy's biceps and pectoral muscles.
