The Tick review: a laugh-out-loud superhero satire

Ron Hogan Aug 25, 2017

The Tick, out now on Amazon Prime Video, is huge fun. Here's how the show achieves what its creator envisioned 21 years ago...

In 1994, I was about to be a freshman in high school. Despite being “too old” for cartoons, there wasn’t really anything else on television on Saturday mornings while I was waiting for wrestling to show up on my television screen. I remember most of the cartoons I saw only in the vaguest terms: the creepy face of Louie Anderson’s gargoyle animated child or a screaming purple cat. I know the name of both shows because I looked them up prior to writing this article, but I couldn’t tell you anything about them. However, one show I watched regularly in the mid to late 90s stuck with me well into adulthood, and that’s the 1994-96 animated version of The Tick.

A Pixar Casting Director’s Secret to Getting Hired

Twenty years ago, Pixar, Tom Hanks, and Tim Allen brought Woody, Buzz Lightyear, and the world of “Toy Story” to life. Since then, Pixar Animation Studios has spawned some of the film industry’s most memorable voice actor work of all time. Much of that work is in no small part thanks to behind-the-scenes leaders like casting director Kevin Reher and casting manager Natalie Lyon, both of whom will be honored with the Backstage Vanguard Award for Casting this Saturday, Nov. 14, at the Pacific Design Center during a sit down interview and ceremony moderated by 2014 Backstage Vanguard winner Pat Fraley. The second annual Voice Arts Awards will take place on Sunday, Nov. 15.

Nycc 2015 Part I: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!

  • Comicmix
So if you haven’t noticed, the Thursday of New York Comic Con has kiiiiiind of turned into “Turtles Day” for me, in the sense that Nickelodeon does their press and events for the current animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles show on that Thursday, and since I love Turtles and the current show, that’s where I’m at each year for whatever they offer.

This year, that means I had the pleasure of interviewing Ciro Nieli (Executive Producer/Director), Brandon Auman (Executive Producer/Head Writer), Hoon Lee (voice of Master Splinter), Rob Paulsen (voice of Donatello), and Greg Cipes (voice of Michelangelo) about the show. They dished about everything from the upcoming season to whether Raph and Mona Lisa are really going to maybe have babies in, like, Season 6 or something (heh). I also got to go to the rockin’ Turtles panel (in which cast and crew geeked out

Exclusive: Guess Who Whoopi Goldberg Is Playing In Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

A couple days ago, Whoopi was seen exiting from the set of the new live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The very talented entertainer, who has won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony Award, had many people scratching their heads as to whom she might be playing. The only possible clues was that she was wearing a large, crazy-haired wig, and a jumpsuit covered up her character's wardrobe. But today, I was contacted by a source, KrispinWah, who informed me that Whoopi Goldberg ("Ghost") will be playing Bernadette Thompson, an editor at Channel 6 News and more importantly, April O'Neil (Megan Fox) and Vernon Fenwick's (Will Arnett) boss. Right away, fans of the the popular 1987 animated series should be able to recognize that name... sort of. See, in that series, April O'Neil's boss was Burne Thompson (voiced by Pat Fraley & Townsend Coleman). So, for Michael Bay's Tmnt the character will be
