Batman, the animated series, is the pinnacle of what comics-based television could be... and it peaked with "Heart of Ice".

Patrick Warburton was perfectly cast as the Tick... but the live action show was at best a pale shadow of the animated one. How could it be otherwise? Man-eating-cow, or Chairface Chippendale... how could you do them live-action? Or Brain-Child's dog?

I loved the Tick. But the cartoon was better than the live action version (sorry, Patrick).
