The Simpsons


Last week, “The Simpsons” celebrated its 600 episode, proving that it can still make fans laugh for over 28 seasons. The hit Fox animated series continues to strike a chord with viewers for irreverently poking fun at anything and everything, including “Making a Murderer.”

Fox released a snippet of Sunday’s upcoming episode, “Trust but Clarify,” which pokes fun at the Netflix docuseries in an episode of “The Itchy and Scratchy  Show” titled “Mousetrapping a Murderer.”

The less-than-a-minute clip begins mimicking the “Making a Murderer” title sequence and shows mouse traps, a portrait of Itchy’s family and him holding a bloody knife behind his back. It then shows Scratchy going up to the murderous mouse before being attacked.

“After all these years Itchy must face his punishment for killing Scratchy,” reads the description for the clip. Check it out below.

“The Simpsons” airs Sundays at 8 p.m. on Fox.
