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

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 »

The Best...
11 February 2000 | by (Ottawa, Canada) – See all my reviews

This was just a perfect show. It's too bad it appealed almost exclusively to a more mature audience. That is why it was cancelled. To stay on the air on Saturday morning you have to be able to sell toys to kids. If only FOX could have realized that this show could have been a huge success if they placed it in a timeslot that the more mature audience could be the target audience for the commercials.
