Bart the Daredevil
Itchy & Scratchy & Marge
Bart Gets Hit by a Car


  • Homer's hammer still has the price tag connected.
  • This marks the first appearances of Sideshow Mel and Roger Meyers, Jr..
  • This is the first episode to have Marge's name in the title.
  • Janey's mother makes her first, but very brief appearance walking through the living room of Janey's house when she and Lisa are watching Itchy and Scratchy.
  • Scratchy was narrating to Itchy The Story of the Three Bears. It's uncertain if Itchy's just young or enjoys company here. 
  • After Maggie hit him with a mallet Homer said that his baby beat him up. In Eeny Teeny Maya, Moe he does get beaten up by a baby and is rescued by Maggie.
  • Homer and Marge take Maggie's attacks on Homer as being solely influenced by violent cartoons, but as we'll see in Who Shot Mr. Burns?, we'll see that Maggie really is capable of premeditated violence.
  • During the sequence of Marge's letter to the various people responsible for airing Itchy & Scratchy, Krusty the Clown is shown reading it and then flipping the paper around horizontally in an attempt to read it, alluding to his illiteracy, which had earlier been shown in Krusty Gets Busted.
  • When Roger Meyers Jr. sent Marge a rude letter in response to her complaint, it showed Meyers writing "So let me close by saying—" and then it immediately cutting to Marge reading the letter and saying "...And the horse I rode in on?". This was a reference to a very vulgar expression, known as "[censored] you, and the horse you rode in on."
  • This episode is the last to air in 1990.


  • In one scene, Maggie's bow is missing.
  • When Homer says "What are you gonna do?" one of his head ligatures mysteriously disappears.
  • When Bart drops the "DON'T ban Itchy and Scratchy" sign, the word "DON'T" is black. Before, it was red.


  • The scene where Maggie attacks Homer with a mallet is a recreation of the shower scene from Psycho.
  • Moe's sign during Marge's protest outside Itchy & Scratchy International says "Bring Back "Wagon Train"!", referring to the 1950s-1960s NBC and ABC animated series of the same name.
