"Bart Vs. Itchy & Scratchy" is the 18th episode of season 30 of The Simpsons. It aired on March 24, 2019.

Synopsis[edit]

"Krusty releases an all-female reboot of "Itchy and Scratchy," so Bart and his crew of all-male friends decide to boycott the show. After Bart's friends turn on him for laughing at the reboot, Bart joins a woke group of sixth-grade girls who commit crimes against patriarchy."

Plot[edit]

At the Springfield Convention Center, at the Krusty Kon, a panel for the season 41 preview is held for The Krusty the Clown Show, showing the season 40 gag reel, and an all-female reboot of "Itchy and Scratchy", for gender diversity, with boys booing the idea, while the girls are ecstatic.

Bart comes up with the idea of Hate-not-watch of the show, where they switch off the tv once the episode comes on tv, while Lisa enjoys it. But hearing her sister laugh so much at the episode, Bart couldn't resist and joins Lisa on watching, lying afterwards to his friends.

Lisa however recorded the scene with her phone, and during Josh.0, Josh shows the video, with Homer watching and laughing at him. Bart thought he could get away with it but his friends disagree and threaten him all the way to the women bathroom, where he meets Carmen, Erica and Piper, three 6th graders.

With them, he pulls a prank on Skinner, and they introduce him to their group, Bossy Riot, while the other boys form the Boys Rights Association, with Milhouse as the leader. Bossy Riot start pranking not just the Springfield Elementary School but the whole town too. When Lisa finds out Bart is in too, she wants to join.

But when the Boys Rights Association burn the toys in protest, the girls of Bossy Riot want to burn all masters of Itchy and Scratchy, but Bart tries to stop them, just to be tied to a mannequin, and saved by Lisa.

Arriving at Krustylu Studios, they find out that Bossy Riot are close to do it in live tv, but the recording are saved (save for three videocassettes) by Lisa, spewing the fumes of the nail polish remover on the boys, that blame Milhouse for it.

Chief Wiggum tries to follow them but fail to catch them due to their smartness dressing up. Outside the studios, the girls tell Bart he was never in the group and was in just for fingerprints and DNA, and invite Lisa in the group, before driving off on their bike.

In the end Lisa joins them, and Bart happily writes "The patriarchy is a wiener" on the wall with a paint can. Later, the boys group again together, with Bart telling them how it was being with them, but making them sad by saying they don't envy the boys.
