Originally, Tick and Arthur were supposed to always wear glasses that covered their eyes, as they did in the comic and The Tick (1994), but that was dropped when Patrick Warburton was cast, because of the way he was able to use his eyes. See more »
An episode entitled "The Terror", which featured Tick and Arthur fighting a 112-year-old villain, was slated to air in the first season, but for some reason it wasn't. (This episode is, however, on the DVD collection) See more »
Utterly hilarious...why can't more TV shows be this good?
Every aspect of this show shines - The writing, casting, directing and comic timing raise this series to a level of quality that few other TV shows have been able to achieve in recent years. Especially Patrick Warburton as the Tick is perfectly cast.
Unfortunately, it only ran for one season - A reflection of the dismal state of TV programming these days. Fortunately, all episodes have been released on a 2-DVD set!
Do not let this gem pass you by...
