I really love Matt Groening's work. One of the most interesting things he did with The Simpsons was Itchy and Scratchy, used both as a show-within-a-show and a show-within-a-show-within-a-show (is that meta-metafiction?) As I remarked back in the Cartoon Classics week, I love me some good old fashioned cat-n-mouse, and I&S was always the horrific extreme of that genre... but still grimly humorous. And Matt's still doing it, and killing it. How cool is that?

Today's comic suggested by James Rice.

Groening still does the I&S spots in the show? I didn't know that! Cool... Makes me wish there was a video collection just of them!

I was referring to making cartoons, not necessarily I&S. I can't find any references on Wikipedia as to whether they are still on the show. Guess you'll just have to watch the seasons backwards on DVD to find out...!

Funny, this one could serve as a precursor to almost every one of your countless Kitty-comics... all you need to add is Itchy giggling from behind a corner, to make it appear as if he set it all up.
Trippy.
