A fourth season was planned before Fox canceled the series. Some of the fourth season's developments would involve Arthur and Tick moving in with Carmelita, the Terror would find the Fountain of Youth, and that Barry (from The Tick: The Tick vs. The Tick (1994)) was revealed to be Carmelita's brother, who was originally destined to wear Arthur's moth suit.

See these insects? That's Coach Fussell's gym class. They made me wear shorts. So I turned 'em into earwigs.
You know, Charles, sometimes, when I feel like a raving ding-dong, I find a nice bit of chamomile tea...

This was a good show! A great spoof of all those action packed cartoons. First, there's The Tick: Seven feet tall and 800 pounds of blue and muscle, but not brains. Next, was his sidekick Arthur, who wore a moth suit. He could also fly, or rather glide. Tick and Arthur would always defeat evil wherever it is and snatch victory from the jaws of defeat each time. They had their share of superhero friends: Die Fladermaus, who talked big but was really a coward. Sewer Urchin, who was braver than Die Fladermaus but lived in a sewer so nobody wanted to be around him much. American Maid, whom Die Fladermaus had a crush on, but always chose to childishly insult her. Dinosaur Neil, who is Arthur's brother in-law. But they also had their share of villains: El Seed, the human flower, Chairface Chippendale, The Terror, Forehead, Mr. Mental, Multiple Santa, etc. There were some good episodes, like the one "Tick Loves Santa", where the friends battle Multiple Santa who kept multiplying. Or how about "Tick vs. Arthur's Bank Account" where Tick spends all Arthur's money on a frivilous investment. "Tick vs. Tick" was a classic! Tick, Arthur, Die Fladermaus and Sewer Urchin attend a superheroes convention and Arthur has to stay in the sidekick lounge. Another superhero who called himself The Tick was there. Yeah, but now The Tick isn't on TV anymore, which is too bad; Townsend Coleman is the voice of The Tick, Rob Paulsen is Arthur, Cam Clarke is Die Fladermaus. You know, those three did the voices of Michaelangelo, Raphael and Leonardo on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!
Just recently, a live-action Tick series premiered. Patrick Warburton was The Tick, David Burke was Arthur, Liz Vassey was Captain Liberty (American Maid), and Nestor Carbonell was Batmanuel (Die Fladermaus), but it only lasted one season. So in conclusion, The Tick was very funny! I'm sure those of you who remember it would agree.
