The Tick review: a laugh-out-loud superhero satire

Ron Hogan Aug 25, 2017

The Tick, out now on Amazon Prime Video, is huge fun. Here's how the show achieves what its creator envisioned 21 years ago...

In 1994, I was about to be a freshman in high school. Despite being “too old” for cartoons, there wasn’t really anything else on television on Saturday mornings while I was waiting for wrestling to show up on my television screen. I remember most of the cartoons I saw only in the vaguest terms: the creepy face of Louie Anderson’s gargoyle animated child or a screaming purple cat. I know the name of both shows because I looked them up prior to writing this article, but I couldn’t tell you anything about them. However, one show I watched regularly in the mid to late 90s stuck with me well into adulthood, and that’s the 1994-96 animated version of The Tick.

The Tick Finds New Life With An Amazon Pilot Order

When Ben Edlund first created the character The Tick as a newsletter mascot for New England Comics, he could hardly have known that his creation would be embraced by millions as a popular icon. Now, thirty years later, the writer and artist finds himself breathing new, live-action life into the concept, as Amazon orders a series pilot.

First appearing in 1986 as a spoof comic book superhero, The Tick earned his own independent comic book series in 1988, which was adapted into an animated series in 1994. A 9 episode live-action series aired on Fox in 2001, and starred Patrick Warburton as the titular hero, supported by David Burke, Nestor Carbonell and Liz Vassey.

For those unfamiliar with the character, the Tick has super human strength and mass, and is almost invulnerable. He also has “drama power,” which causes his super powers to increase in conjunction with the level of dramatic tension in a situation

The Tick TV Series Could Return

The Tick TV Series Could Return
It only lasted nine episodes on TV back in 2001 and delivered paltry ratings, but for those who enjoy their comedies on the cult side, The Tick remains a fond memory. Now it appears that the show – including star Patrick Warburton – could get a second chance at life via Amazon.Originally created by Ben Edlund in 1986 as a newsletter mascot for a comic shop, the character evolved into an indie comic in 1988 before graduating to bigger things with an animated series that ran for three seasons starting in 1994. From there, it spawned the live-action series that featured Warburton as the titular goof, a good-natured parody of superheroes. David Burke played Arthur, his put-upon sidekick, while Liz Vassey was female hero Captain Liberty and Nestor Carbonell was Batmanuel who… look, you can work it out from the name, okay? Despite great reviews, the series was soon shut down even though the character

Amazon and Fox To Revive "The Tick"?

A surprise report has popped up indicating both Fox and Amazon have made a deal for the latter to do a new live-action series based on Ben Edlund‘s "The Tick".

The original Fox series aired in 2001 and revolved around a giant, good-natured if somewhat dimwitted and bumbling superhero played by Patrick Warburton. Along the way he was helped by his moth-costumed sidekick Arthur (David Burke), wannabe lothario Batmanuel (Nestor Carbonell), and buxom beauty Captain Liberty (Liz Vassey).

Though it ran for just nine episodes, it's looked back on fondly as being ahead of its time and is a cult hit thanks to its affectionate skewering of superhero stories.

Now, People magazine has reported on the news saying that Warburton "recently inked a deal with Amazon and Sony to reprise his role, with Edlund producing and writing."

None of the stars or company's mentioned in the report have confirmed the

'The Tick' TV Show with Patrick Warburton Revived on Amazon?

'The Tick' TV Show with Patrick Warburton Revived on Amazon?
"Spooooon!" The Tick is back to save the day! More than 13 years after it first debuted on Fox, the short lived superhero spoof The Tick may be returning for all-new episodes on Amazon. People reports that Patrick Warburton will even be back to play the lead character.

Riding high on his fame as David Puddy when Seinfeld came to a close, Patrick Warburton channeled that same persona into the short lived Fox superhero series The Tick. It only ran for 9 episodes, and was often sighted for being a little too much like Seinfeld in tights, with its four costumed crime fighters squabbling about their daily routine in a local diner. While it was quickly canceled, it has been a mainstay on DVD and streaming services for the past decade, and it has amassed a quiet fan base of devotees.
