―Poochie
Hello there, Itchy. I know there's a lot of people who don't like me and wish I would go away and I think we got off on the wrong foot. I know I can come off a little proactive, and for that I'm sorry. But if everyone could find a place in their hearts for the little dog nobody wanted I know we can make 'em laugh and cry till we grow old together.
―Homer's passionate speech[src]
Always stay in character, and no flirting with pretty moms... TO THE EXTREME!
―Poochie

Poochie was a character on The Itchy & Scratchy Show. The network executives decided that the show needed an "update" to keep the interest of its audience, so they devised Poochie, a cartoon dog "with an attitude". Poochie has a song, the Poochie rap.

HistoryEdit

CreationEdit

After widespread auditions, Homer was chosen to provide Poochie's voice. The character debuted to an unreceptive audience following a massive publicity campaign; he only served to interfere with the well-oiled machine of hyperviolent slapstick that Itchy and Scratchy had perfected over the years. 

DeathEdit

Poochie's first appearance

When dissatisfied viewers flooded the network with letters crying for Poochie's immediate removal, if not death, the executives quickly decided to get rid of the character. Homer begged for another chance, insisting that Poochie would grow on the audience; this argument held little weight until the actress who performed voices for both Itchy and Scratchy declared her support for Poochie as well.

Homer was shocked, however, when the next cartoon aired: it contained a hastily-animated, redubbed segment in which Poochie, not voiced by Homer, stated he had decided to return to his "home planet." Dialogue written in bloody letters across the screen read, "Note: Poochie died on his way back to his home planet," and cuts immediately back to Krusty telling kids happily, "Poochie's dead!" Despite his death, however, he made a brief cameo in the Itchy and Scratchy episode The Tears of a Clone.

He appears periodically on merchandise such as dolls and T-shirts. possibly a parody of the "nostalgia" trends of consumer culture.

The Simpsons GameEdit

He is the main enemy on the Grand Theft Scratchy level, where he acts and speaks like a rapper. After Marge and Lisa re-form the Ice Cream cars, Poochie talks to the Feline "ho's" watching the show, ordering them to destroy the cars. Using her Hand of Buddha, Lisa defeats the prostitutes, while Marge sends the dogs to destroy the stage on which Poochie stands. Marge apologized and told him that "even he isn't a match for a stay-at-home mom with too much time on her hands."
