A group of young teens is unexpectedly sent to the mysterious Digital World and paired up with their own powerful, morphing monster called the Digimon. Together the entire group set out on an adventure to fight evil and save the world.
After "crashing" the super hero convention in Reno, the nigh invulnerable blue-clad super hero, the Tick, is deemed the protector of "The City." On his first patrol he runs (more like "falls") into Arthur, an accountant in a moth costume. They soon strike up a partnership. When the villainous and muffled idea men threaten to flood The City, the Tick and Arthur come to the rescue. Along the way we meet Die Fledermaus, American Maid, and the Caped Chameleon. The Human Bullet cameos. Written by

The name of the Batman spoof Die Fledermaus is frequently misheard by viewers (who watch the un-subtitled version and thus have not seen the name spelled out) as Deflator Mouse and is listed as such in some Internet discussions. Die Fledermaus is an Austrian opera by Johann Strauß where one character briefly wears a bat costume. Die means The and Fledermaus means Bat. Technically this German word for bat means "flying mouse" or "mouse of the sky", as do the names of this animal in several other European languages. E.g. French chauves-souris, Russian letuchaya muish, and Spanish murciélago (from an archaic dialect, of which the modern form would be ratón del cielo). Some German-speaking cultures have changed the animal name of Fledermaus to Fledertiere ("flying animal") to be more accurate, as bats are not closely related to mice. See more »

I thought it was impossible to find cartoons that parents can enjoy as much as (if not more than) the kids. The Tick proved me wrong. I laughed until I cried. Highly literate, The Tick is set in The City, a metropolis overrun with superheroes and villains. See Die Fledermaus, The Civic-Minded Five (yes, they drive a Civic), and American Maid as they battle evil with The Tick and his sidekick Arthur ("I'm not a bunny! I'm a moth!)
