The Itchy & Scratchy Show generates controversy yet again when Bart and Lisa befriend Chester J. Lampwick, a homeless man who claims to have invented the cartoon cat and mouse, only to have his idea stolen by Roger Meyers, Sr. back in 1919. With Bart and Lisa's help, Chester enlists Lionel Hutz and sues Roger Meyers, Jr. for $800 million and wins. Itchy & Scratchy Studios is shut down, and Chester gets to live the life every bum dreams about when he buys a solid gold house. With Itchy & Scratchy off the air, Lisa and Bart have to endure incredibly boring cartoons until two smart kids, Lester and Eliza (who look surprisingly like Bart and Lisa) figure out a way to save Itchy & Scratchy.
