Scratchy is a cartoon cat from the show The Itchy & Scratchy Show. Despite usually being depicted as kind in nature, Scratchy is relentlessly attacked by Itchy the mouse. In almost every episode, Scratchy is brutally maimed and injured - and usually killed - by Itchy. Only in a few episodes is Scratchy not the victim of violence.

Scratchy's first cartoon, entitled That Happy Cat, was released in 1928. The cartoon starred Scratchy and showed him walking down the street and whistling. The cartoon did poorly and it was not until Scratchy was teamed up with Itchy that the pair really became popular.[1]

Itchy & Scratchy Land is an Itchy and Scratchy theme park. It has parades with robots resembling Itchy and Scratchy which are supposed to be inoffensive and only attack themselves. While on vacation, the Simpsons were attacked by a group of robots, until they used the cameras flashes to short circuit them (the reason flash snaps are not allowed).[2]

Behind the Laughter[edit]

  • Scratchy is a parody of both Tom Cat of Tom and Jerry fame as well as Katnip of Herman and Katnip. Tom and Katnip's position as the usual loser in their respective feuds has been exaggerated with Scratchy, who is simply a clueless victim who rarely even has thoughts of hurting Itchy. His appearance in Steamboat Itchy references Pete.
  • The LEGO bio of the Scratchy figure claims he wants to eat Itchy, though in the actual shorts Scratchy shows no interest in eating Itchy, and only seems to attack Itchy rarely in self defense. The bio doesn't mention Scratchy's tendency to die. It is likely this is due to LEGO wanting to tone down the characters for lower ages.
