< Scratch Wiki:April Fools

Note Warning: Discussion of a terrible game. Also, high amounts of Sonic the Hedgehog stuff. Read at your own risk.

The Questions about Scratch forum is a place where you can discuss the scratches that you have gotten from the Scratch Cat and ask questions about why the Scratch Cat scratched you (as well as cures and cold cream to reduce pain; also Sonic '06). Many Scratchers come to this forum and discuss this, because the Scratch Cat would scratch you if you move it around in the editor. The Scratch Cat loves to stay in the center of the screen, so if you move the Scratch Cat even just one pixel, you will get scratched. Topics complaining about Scratch Cat scraping them when Scratch Day events are created are usually on Scratch Day.

What Happens When you Create a Topic

Once you create a topic, the Scratch Team will shut down the website and tell the Scratch Cat to stop scratching people when it is not in the center of the screen or Scratch Day events are shut down. Then, after the Scratch Cat gets an alert, the website will be back on. Then, your topic will have a response from the Scratch Cat saying to not move him from the center of the screen or create their own Scratch Day event again. Also you'll be given the worst game ever which you'll be forced to play.[1] It's very torturing with very bad plot, design, and programming; and can even worsen your scratches. It also spawned controversy (see the section, "Sonic '06 Controversy")

The reason why they give poor games because they want to torture the minds of Scratchers which forces them to give them energy units. Also to impress the Scratch Cat because he's a big Sonic fan!


Because the Scratch Cat needs to stay in the center of the screen, there are some solutions. You can use Gobo as a sprite, because he doesn't mind if he gets moved from the center of the screen. Or, you can use any other sprite besides the Scratch Cat.

You can make a script like the following:

when green flag clicked
wait (600) secs
set x to (1)

and run away fast.

For Scratch Day stuff, you can just not celebrate Scratch Day.

The ScratchBoard (now PicoBoard) was once used to stop Scratch Cat from scratching by strapping him onto the board and let me watch Frozen or play Mega Man. However, all attempts failed since bad Scratch Cat kept scratching the users. Then the original purpose was dropped out and replaced with making Pico happy.

Reducing Scratches Pain

Scratchers[2] have recommended Blue Ice Cream from Itch & Co.[3]To use this cream, pour all contents into a medium bucket and dip wash your scratches with it for 3 hours. This cream is effective for reducing pain, although it's icy cold. For those who can't stand Ice Cream, there's Red Spicy Tomato Sauce from Bad Boys Inc, famous for its really hot content. This sauce will reduce pain but will add itch, as well as stingy smells that had made Scratch Cat hungry. You can also remove a scratch with two more scratches.


When Scratch Cat tried to scratch you, he might spot a bar of chocolate in your room and take it with him. It is reported that Scratch Cat is obsessed with blue things such as Sonic the Hedgehog toys disappearing. Many Scratchers held a demonstration when Scratch Cat ate their pie on 3-14-15.

Also, if he scratches you, he will scratch with his really deep claws that will hurt like a shark biting (Jaws?). The pain will last for lifetime. He can spread germs so if you get infected, this means you have to take a double scratch (AKA get a shot from your average doctor which hurts like Scratch Cat's scratch).

Sonic '06 controversy

See also: Game Tree#Purpose

People also complained of receiving Sonic '06 and being forced to play it. There has been many reasons why, this includes (but not all):

  • The poor game design
  • Tons of hours it takes to finish[4]
  • Simply not liking Sonic

Since some pitiful victims started liking Sonic after playing the game, people randomly accused the Scratch Team of "brainwashing" Scratch Cat's victims.

They have also suggested that they should get another game, either a better Sonic game or a good game from another franchise. Scratch Team has stated that they'll only do so if they finish Sonic '06; and even threatened that if people still complain, they'll start handing out much worser games such as E.T: The Extra Terrestrial, Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric, and Bubsy 3D.[5] They even threatened to show the Silvamy drawing, which has been known to burn eyes.

The Silvamy drawing

Some creative Scratchers have started game trees to try to get past the Sonic '06 horror. This is a popular practice. Also, people may dump all of the sounds to their favorite music playlist because the music is the only thing they care about.[6][7][8][9][10]
