Character Information
Male ♂
Hair: Gray
Occupation: Former: Animator
Relatives: Son: Roger Meyers, Jr.
First Appearance: "Itchy & Scratchy Land"

Roger Meyers, Sr. is the founder of I&S Studios which produce Itchy & Scratchy cartoons. Roger Meyers, Jr. is his son who took over the company upon his death.


His first full cartoon was Steamboat Itchy, in 1928. He was later criticized for his film Nazi Supermen Are Our Superiors and he also made musical films like Scratchtasia and Pinitchio.[1]

It has been revealed that Meyers was not the creator of Itchy and had instead stolen the character from Chester J. Lampwick.[2]

Behind the Laughter[edit]

  • Meyers is based on Walt Disney, and him having stolen the idea is somewhat of a parody.
  • His surname has been spelt as both "Meyers" and "Myers". An instance of this is "Itchy & Scratchy & Marge", in which both forms appear.
