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. 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 »

This show was great. It was very funny. All the characters were (obviously) reminiscent of the famous DC and Marvel comics characters. Probably what made it so funny. This show was way to short lived and deserved longer time on the air. I look forward to the new live action show that is coming and hope is equals, if not surpasses, this show in quality.
