The Simpsons first aired in 1989 as half-hour television series, and now, 30 plus years later it is the longest-running primetime scripted show in television history. The Itchy & Scratchy Show is Bart & Lisa's favorite cartoon - the show depicts a blue mouse, Itchy, who repeatedly and violently maims and/or kills a black cat, Scratchy, typically presented as 15 to 60 second-long cartoons that are a part of The Krusty the Clown Show. It's filled with gratuitous violence that almost invariably prompts uproarious laughter from Bart and Lisa, and Homer when he occasionally watches. Several full episodes have been centered on it - they're popular in the Simpsons world & ours too! This 1 oz silver tribute from the Perth Mint features the show's logo & the main characters - an amazing addition to your collection!
