SSR #22: “Itchy & Scratchy & Marge”

Are cartoons really that violent? I mean, the last episode I looked at was the episode where Homer plummeted down Springfield Gorge twice and ended up bloodied and in a full-body cast. Aside from that though, I’d say The Simpsons is a pretty tame show. We can also take a look at shows like Looney Tunes where the bad guy gets endlessly tormented by the evasive good guy, but even those shows haven’t felt incredibly violent either. However, when it comes to The Simpsons version of Looney Tunes; Itchy & Scratchy…I can start to see where some parents, much like Marge Simpson, might have some issues. And today, we are going to see what her issues are in the episode; “Itchy & Scratchy & Marge.”
