  • This episode is one of the classic episodes of this series

    This episode features the villain Breadmaster. A slow episode when it starts but picks up when the Tick visits a bakery school. In one of the most hilarious scenes of the show, Tick eats a 'bread bomb' that begins growing inside the Tick.

    Funny episode overall. One of the best.
  • Not perfect, but I'll take it

    A sinester baker named The Breadmaster and his sidekick Buttery Pat(Whose made completly out of butter) try to destroy major baking companys and the city with baked goods. There aren\'t many good quotes in this one, and neither of them are memeriable, but it still manages to be funny. The Breadmaster is a typical villian, many causing trouble because of revenge, which is one of the many reason people become evil. The most interesting villian in this episode is Buttery Pat. When ever Buttery Pat walks he leaves a trail of butter following him, and he places the bread in place. The only bad thing is he dosen't talk much. Next to Arthur Buttery Pat is the best sidekick, next to Arthurmoreless
  • You may not necessarily loaf this episode. But at yeast you’ll get a few laughs out of it.

    The best thing about “The Tick Versus The Breadmaster” is the fact that the feature villain is voiced by Roddy McDowall, one of my all-time favorite character actors. Once again, the creators provide us with the most truly bizarre criminal exploits to ever be put to celluloid, including a strange evil sidekick named Buttery Pat, who naturally, is a man made out of living Butter.

    Although this episode is not particularly funny, there is an outrageous scene where the Breadmaster makes a giant soufflé engineered to explode and consume the entire City. This naturally sets up the eventual segue for the Tick to make various bakery related gags. “Baking goods? No! Baking BADS!”moreless
