'The Simpsons' Made A 'Downton Abbey' Parody, And It's Pretty Shocking

Nothing quite highlights the exquisiteness and elegance of "Downton Abbey" like a good ol' animated bloodfest.

"The Simpsons" decided to take on the British period drama by turning it into the excessively violent "The Itchy & Scratchy Show." In the spoof video, aptly titled "Downton Tabby," the Crawley family is made up of Itchys and the servants are Scratchys -- of course Scratchy remains the underdog.

A massive slaughter commences -- including much death-by-silverware, teacup beheading, and lots and lots of blood -- all set to the "Downton" theme music. It may leave you disturbed, but Lisa seems to enjoy it.
