Poochie the Dog
Character Information
Male ♂
Fictional deceased
Hair: Black
Occupation: Character on Itchy & Scratchy
First appearance: "The Itchy & Scratchy & Poochie Show"
Voiced by: Dan Castellaneta

Poochie was a character on The Itchy & Scratchy Show. The network executives decided that the show needed an "update" to keep the interest of its audience, so they devised Poochie, a cartoon dog "with an attitude".



After widespread auditions, Homer was chosen to provide Poochie's voice. The character debuted to an unreceptive audience following a massive publicity campaign; he only served to interfere with the well-oiled machine of hyperviolent slapstick that Itchy and Scratchy had perfected over the years.[1]


When dissatisfied viewers flooded the network with letters calling for Poochie's immediate removal, if not death, the executives quickly decided to get rid of the character. Homer begged for another chance, insisting that Poochie would grow on the audience; this argument held little weight until the actress who performed voices for both Itchy and Scratchy declared her support for Poochie as well. Homer was shocked, however, when the next cartoon aired: it contained a crudely animated segment stating that Poochie (now voiced by Roger Meyers, Jr.) had decided to return to his "home planet", with the animation cel containing Poochie being obviously lifted out of the frame by hand. Next, a slide with blood-red handwritten letters reads Note: Poochie died on his way back to his home planet. In the studio, Krusty gleefully shouts to the kids in the audience, "Poochie's dead!", to tremendous applause.[1] Despite this, Poochie made a cameo afterwards in the cartoon The Tears of a Clone at Scratchy's funeral.[2]

Video games[edit]

In The Simpsons Road Rage, his name can be seen on one of the graves in the Springfield Pet Cemetery.

In The Simpsons Game, he is the main enemy on the Grand Theft Scratchy level. Acting and speaking like a rapper, he orders the Feline hoes that were watching the show to destroy the Ice Cream cars Marge and Lisa reformed. Using her Hand of Buddha, Lisa defeats the prostitutes, while Marge sends the dogs to destroy the stage Poochie is standing on, which then explodes, sending Poochie flying away.[3]
