Title pun: Planet of the Apes
Season: 6

"Planet of the Aches" is an episode of The Itchy & Scratchy Show. It was the season finale episode of The Itchy and Scratchy Show, and it aired on the season finale of the Krusty the Clown Show.


Itchy is walling up Scratchy in an alcove. Itchy laughs as he puts the last bricks in place, sealing Scratchy inside. Three thousand years later, lasers are seen cutting the wall open, revealing a trembling, aged Scratchy, who is now very thin and wrinkled and has a long beard. Scratchy steps out of the alcove to see mice that resemble Itchy, but appear to be super-intelligent as they have very large brains and are wearing lab coats. Scratchy is startled when he sees the mice's brains pulsing, but relaxes when all that happens is that a comb and brush float to him and start grooming his fur and beard. The mice are not only super-intelligent, but also telekinetic.

Using their powers, the mice nurse Scratchy back to health and dress him in a lab coat. Then they take Scratchy to a large amphitheatre. Scratchy sweats nervously as he notices that it's filled with super-intelligent mice. The mice smile evilly at Scratchy; then their brains pulse as they use their telekinetic powers to launch all kinds of knives, axes, and other bladed weapons at him. Scratchy screams as he's cut to pieces, and the mice in the audience applaud.
