Ah Poochie, the original dog from hell, the totally outrageous paradigm, the kung-fu hippie, the rappin' surfer... The Simpsons were still going strong in season 8 when "The Itchy & Scratchy & Poochie Show" first aired in 1997. The '90s had a lot of characters who were given then-current fashion and attitude in an attempt to become relevant again (Looney Tunes was probably the greatest offender). A number of "poochified" characters have appeared here on BPA - notably Snoopy and Woody Woodpecker. Rest assured that these will not be the last (Garfield and Bugs Bunny are on the way). This figure is from the 20th Anniversary Figure Collection released in 2009.
