Storyline

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 Kevin Gillease <gillease@scf-fs.usc.edu>

Trivia

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.

Rocking The City
19 January 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Justice comes in many forms, and in The Tick it comes in at about 400 pounds in blue tights and wrapped in mixed metaphors.

The Tick is that rare beast -- a cartoon the adults will enjoy as much as the kids. In the tradition of Bullwinkle and the Alf cartoons, The Tick is sophisticated if silly, intellectual if infantile, a one-liner of truth in the hyperinflated monologue of network television. It's... oh, never mind. Watch it and see.
