Itchy & Scratchy Live! is a Simpsons Comics story first printed in Simpsons Comics #229.


""Bart is thrilled when a production of "Itchy & Scratchy Live" comes to town, but he is even more excited when the actor playing Itchy is injured, and he is asked to take his place. But it doesn't take long before the thrill is gone!"


Bart is watching an episode of The Itchy & Scratchy Show on his cell phone. In this episode, Itchy plays a student who dreams of destroying the school, but is woken by the teacher, Scratchy, who asks him to explain the law of gravity. It turns out that Itchy has made a hole in the ground. Scratchy falls into it, and ends up in the school's meat grinder and becomes a hamburger. Seymour Skinner tries to get Bart to stop watching the cartoon and learn about the Dewey Decimal System. Jimbo Jones then tells the class that Krusty is in the schoolyard, holding a contest to see who knows the most about Itchy & Scratchy. The children run into the schoolyard to participate in the competition. Bart cheats by getting Lisa scratched by ants and Milhouse pulled off by dogs. Bart is awarded the chance to participate in Itchy and Scratchy Live the next day.

The next day, Bart is welcomed by Scratchy, who gives him an Itchy suit and shows him an obstacle to go through. The show begins and Krusty tells the audience that he has nothing to do with the show, and someone was dressed as him so he could find someone to play Itchy. Scratchy takes off his suit, revealing Sideshow Bob inside. He tells the audience that he has put glue on all the seats so the audience is glued to their seats while he chases Bart through the obstacle to kill him. But it turns out that Sideshow Bob is also stuck, because Bart found the glue and he realized it was Bob when he saw how big Krusty/Scratchy's feet were, and he didn't laugh when Bart cheated. Bart activates the obstacle and asks the audience if they think Scratchy can handle it. They don't know because they are busy watching a funny video online, which Bart also starts to watch.
