DROP DEAD X ITCHY & SCRATCHY "ROSES ARE RED, VIOLENCE IS DUE" HOODIE

There's so much great stuff coming out this year to commemorate the 25th anniversary of America's first family, "The Simpsons." A slew of chocotastic toys have already premiered, like the "The Simpsons' House" Lego set, a Homer-ized Mr. Potato Head, and NECA figures fabulizing some of the show's noteable guest stars. Many others are yet to come, such as the highly anticipated Kidrobot blind box collection.  As expected, I'm most excited about the apparel offerings. One collection that you'd be a jerkass to overlook is the Drop Dead x Itchy & Scratchy Show capsule.

Cleverly celebrating the cartoon within the cartoon (Is that considered meta? I honestly have no idea), this compilation captures the bloodiest animated duo ever to grace the pictocube. Included is a huge assortment of guys and girls specific items, as well as additional unisex clothing and accessories. It's so hard to choose the standout piece, but I would have to say the "Roses Are Red, Violence Is Due" hoodie best embodies this sadistic cat and mouse pairing. The coral body makes one wonder if it was used to mop up the set after yet another deadly confrontation between these two. Pair it with the matching jogging bottoms, and you can't find a better outfit for lounging around while watching Saturday morning cartoons (all the while temporarily escaping adultivity). The entire collection is available solely at the Drop Dead London and Sheffield locations, and online at dropdead.co.
