Title Pun Tears of a Clown
Season 11

"The Tears of a Clone" is an episode of The Itchy & Scratchy Show.

Plot Edit

Scratchy has recently died, and mourners (including Poochie) pass by his coffin at his funeral. Itchy is depressed and alcoholic without Scratchy, and he leafs through a photo album, reminiscing about all the times he killed him. Itchy perks up, however, when he sees a newspaper headline about a scientist cloning a sheep. He rummages through his closet, finds a meat cleaver with Scratchy's blood on it, and decides to make Scratchy clones. Itchy builds a cloning machine and places a sample of Scratchy's blood from the cleaver in it. As the Scratchy clones emerge from the machine, Itchy kills them using various weapons. However, the clones come out faster than Itchy can kill them, and he gets tired. Then he gets another idea: he builds a "killing machine" and puts it directly after the cloning machine. With this setup, to Itchy's delight, the Scratchy clones are killed as soon as they come out of the cloning machine. The blood of the clones sprays out of the killing machine, spelling "THE END" on the wall.
