  • The Tick has a new neighbor, Thrakazog from dimension 14B! Thrakazog wants to create a clone army of Ticks with which he take over the world. But first, he needs a tissue sample.

    Now THIS is what a Tick episode should be! Thrakazog is hysterical as the mild mannered alien with a salacious, sentient tongue constantly screaming “Brains!” He creates a clone of Arthur and has him steal a literal tissue sample from the Tick. And by tissue sample, I mean a Kleenex filled with Tick boogers. Thrakazog successfully clones him and the Tick (who has been nursing an uncommon cold) now has to fight a giant mucous version of himself! Life doesn’t get much better than this. Where else can you go to find giant green snot monsters!

    This episode is chock full of witty one-liners and hilarious moments of inanity. I proudly place The Tick Versus The Uncommon Cold in my Hall of Fame of all-time classics.
