  • The Tick
rdfs:comment
  • The Tick is the main protagonist of the Tick franchise.
  • SPOON motherfuckers!The end.
  • The Tick is the titular protagonist of the comic book, cartoon, and live action series of the same name. He is a parody of super heroes created by Ben Edlund.
  • 1994 Animated Series, a casual but incisive send-up of Superhero shows (based on an independent comic by Ben Edlund written in the early 90s), featuring as its title character a super-strong, "Nigh Invulnerable" (or so he says), and probably insane moron with a hypertrophied sense of justice and Melodrama, given to bold, thoughtless action and near-incomprehensible Aesop-like pronouncements. Assisting the Tick in his daily struggle against the forces of Evil is Arthur, a former accountant, now moth-themed sidekick. Frequently joining their adventures are Die Fledermaus and American Maid, two fellow crimefighters who bear a funhouse-mirror resemblance to a pair of well-known characters from The DCU.
  • Replacement airship for the Hilmina. It is a large tick, given special powers by the Energized Protodermis entity in Te'Aero Salve. It has two eye-shaped transparent cockpits that can be teleported into, but not easily broken into, as the large Insect is given Invulnerability powers like that the Votohrak have. It has a defense machnism given to it by the Energized Protodermis as well. Several long arms with many joints are scattered about the top of it's body, that can either be controlled by the pilots, or used by the mind of the Tick to capture anything that comes near.

  • 1994 Animated Series, a casual but incisive send-up of Superhero shows (based on an independent comic by Ben Edlund written in the early 90s), featuring as its title character a super-strong, "Nigh Invulnerable" (or so he says), and probably insane moron with a hypertrophied sense of justice and Melodrama, given to bold, thoughtless action and near-incomprehensible Aesop-like pronouncements. Assisting the Tick in his daily struggle against the forces of Evil is Arthur, a former accountant, now moth-themed sidekick. Frequently joining their adventures are Die Fledermaus and American Maid, two fellow crimefighters who bear a funhouse-mirror resemblance to a pair of well-known characters from The DCU. The Tick's adventures are evenly split between well-intentioned cluelessness and actual battles against supervillains. These villains -- such as Chairface Chippendale, El Seed, Brainchild, and the Terror -- are frequently just as bizarre as the Tick and his allies. Some, like the Evil Midnight Bomber What Bombs At Midnight ("One of these days, baby! Milkshake! Boom!"), have even developed their own fan followings. In every episode, this program gleefully skewers the tropes and cliches of the Superhero genre, distorting and twisting them like Silly Putty until they can stretch no more and snap back to hit you in the face. The resulting lunacy has spawned a cult following that continues to this day. In 2001, Fox attempted to revive the series in a live action format with Patrick "Puddy" Warburton as The Tick. American Maid and Die Fliedermaus were absent due to licensing and rights issues, being replaced by near-lookalikes Captain Liberty and Batmanuel. Although some of the animated show's style and wit was retained, along with different humor, it was too expensive to have the Protagonists actually battle evildoers, so the show was often more Seinfeld-in-tights, although did provide some comedic Deconstructions. It was canceled before it could run a whole season. Where's the siege?! (Probably didn't help anything that the last Episode, The Terror was scheduled to run on 9/11/2001.) Watch it legally here. Recently, the comic has returned as a bi-monthly, ongoing title, written by Benito Cereno and drawn by Les McClane.
