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 »

SPOOOOOON!!, 27 August 2002
Author: (robocoptng986127@aol.com) from U.S.A

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.
