The Simpsons (1989) - 7x18 - The Day The Violence Died

Plot Outline
Bart and Lisa watch an "Itchy and Scratchy" marathon and the next day there is an 'Itchy and Scratchy' parade. Homer and the kids stake out spots on the sidewalk, but Bart gets away from them and meets up with a bum who claims to have created Itchy. Bart believes him and they watch his old film, but it burns up during the viewing. Bart vows to get the bum the celebrity status that he deserves, so first Bart brings the bum home with him. Then Bart and the bum go to Roger Myers and ask for all the money he is owed. They are denied and Homer and Marge agree to help them out by paying for a lawyer, Lionel Hutz. The case is not going well, so Bart gets a drawing from the comic book store to prove that the bum is the creator. The court finds in his favor due to plagiarism, so every cent "Itchy and Scratchy" makes now goes to the bum. Unfortunately because of this ruling the "Itchy and Scratchy" studios have to close for good. Bart feels badly about what he did, especially since now a stupid cartoon has replaced it. Bart has to come up with a plan; after all, he and Lisa had done it so many times before. When they figure out how to do it, they discover that Lester and Eliza have already solved the problem. It looks like Bart and Lisa have a little competition.
