    • An Incredibly Well Written, Hilarious Series!

      10
      I'm 24 years old and I just recently finished watching the entire Tick Animated Series for the first time. I remember vaguely being intrigued by the Tick show when it was airing on Fox Kids (I was about 5), but for some reason my mom didn't think it was appropriate and I wasn't really allowed to watch it. That was probably for the best, because I really do think this show is wasted on children. So many of the references and jokes would go over their heads.

      Anyway, about the show. It is absolutely hilarious! All 36 episodes are great, even the couple of mediocre ones still have some really funny parts that make them worth watching. If you like superheroes at all, or even if you don't, you need to check this out. This show really spoofs so many popular superheroes, as well as the whole genre in general, and it is done in a very witty and intelligent way. The episodes are really well written, with extremely creative dialogue, especially from the Tick that will have you rolling (or at least, grinning from ear to ear)!

      If you didn't watch this show when it originally aired, check it out! If you did watch it when it first aired, but you were under the age of 18, check it out again! I guarantee you will find it even funnier than you remember.

      Note: The show has been released on DVD, however the releases available are poor quality and are not complete with every episode. I was able to find the complete series on Blu-ray disc from eBay and the quality is fantastic!

    • All I need say is "SPOON!!"

      10
      It was beyond my comprehension when it first came out, but since I have gotten wiser with as I have come to appreciate it more. Mocking versions of basically every super hero. Indestructible idiot for the main character. Why this was a kids show I do not know because although I liked it at the time my understanding of the show was limited, much like when I was young watching Seinfeld. Arthur, Deflatter Mouse, American Maid all these characters and more made it great, it even had story continuity showing where the moon was written on by a laser in all episodes following that one.moreless
    • "When I was a kid, we only could say spoon"...lol

      9.3
      The Tick was a favorite childhood favorite. Not that I grew up watching it, but I really enjoyed watching it when I was around a decade. The Tick still manages to deliver entertainment while the show has been canceled since back sometime in the 90's. After I watched just the first season of The Tick, you really can't resist yelling out "SPOON" in random places at random times. Both the Tick and Authur deleiver their own special character which seem to be complete opposite, but they still manage to stick together as a team. The Tick gets a 9.3 from me for everlasting interest.moreless
    • This cartoon broke the mold of superhero shows.

      9.0
      "The Tick" broke the mold for superhero shows. It was very odd and wacky. The characters were very original and extremely crazy in a good way. The Tick is a superhero with super strength and agility, but a little short on brains. Aurthur is his side kick, The Human Moth, who used to be an accountant who dreamed of being a superhero. The Tick and Arthur run into each other and Aurthur becomes the unwilling side kick. They meet several other oddball superheros as they go about their daily task of protecting The City from evildoers. This show was hilarious. I wish it hadn't gotten canceled.moreless
    • One Very Odd But Cool Show

      8.0
      The Tick was very odd but one awesome show. A funny action comedy animated show. The Tick was simply about heros who were lazy and lame yet cool. They never really did much still enough. The villains were all very creative and cool. It was a original show. The show did not last too long cause of its oddity. It lasted longer than the live version as that was a flop. U cant compare it to the cartoon as it was excellent. Always a crazy cool show that was a blast to watch. The best thing about the show was it was funny and strange. In the end a very cool cartoon that got screwed.moreless
