The one where they lock scratchy up behind a wall for centuries and mutant mice from the future save him. They comfort him for a while and make him feel accepted, then they slice him up with blades ect.

It is disturbing that people don't seem to understand that the Itchy and Scratchy segments on the Simpsons are meant to parody the selective censorship on cartoons. Specifically cutting relatively benign scenes from classic Bugs Bunny cartoons while allowing extreme violence and gang culture on popular modern cartoons.
Favorite Itchy and Scratchy segment? They are all repulsive. They are parody meant to make you think. Not to discuss which is your favorite....

Relax, Airplay, you are looking too much into it.
Yes, you are correct in the meaning of Itch and Scratchy (the voice of Maude Flanders, among other characters, flies Frontier I found out. Chatted a storm with her when I called for a schedule change), however, people may like it for the satyrical nature of the particular episode, becuase of the reason you stated.
As for the original question, the barbershop episode is my favorite. That or the one with Homer as the dog

I like the episode. Star Trek: The Last Laceration.
Scratchy pilots a spaceship, eating a baloney sandwich and
licking his fingers as he swallows it whole. But his stomach starts to
bulge out, and he screams as Itchy breaks through, holding the
undigested sandwich. Out of spite, Itchy eats the sandwich himself and
tosses the cat in the airlock, pressing the button to blow him into
space. Luckily, Scratchy is prepared, and he snaps his space suit
helmet on just as he is ejected.
Floating free in space doesn't save him, however. Itchy goes out in a
space pod with arms and giggles, grabbing Scratchy's body. He carries
the body up to the rings of a nearby planet and saws the unfortunate cat
in half. Scratchy chases after his lower half, but it burns up as it
enters the planet's atmosphere. He shrugs, but Itchy flies up to him,
grabs his torso, and removes his helmet. His head enlarges in the
vacuum, and Itchy bursts it with a pin. "THE END" appears on the screen
in Scratchy's blood.
