Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The second season of the enormously entertaining and offbeat animated series The Tick arrives on DVD in an attractive package (with cover art by the character's creator, Ben Edlund) but little else, which should give pause to some of the program's dedicated fans. The Tick's surreal adventures got even stranger by the series' second season – among his opponents this season are the giant whale Blowhole, who makes trouble for The Tick and his temporary sidekick, Little Wooden Boy ("Little Wooden Boy and the Belly of Love"), portly villainess Venus, who removes The Tick's arms to commit a crime spree with them ("Armless But Not Harmless"), and Multiple Santa, a petty criminal whose encounter with a electrified billboard allows him to transform into Kris Kringle clones ("The Tick Loves Santa!"). Long-running nemeses like Brainchild and El Seed make return appearances as well (in "Coach Fussell's Lament" and "Bloomsday," respectively), and the episodes themselves have held up well in the decade since their broadcast. But one of the season's funniest episodes, "Alone Together" (written by Christopher McCulloch of The Venture Bros.), is inexplicably missing from this two-disc set, and its absence, along with a lack of any supplemental features save for a collectible lithograph, is bound to have Tick followers scratching their head over why their favorite blue tights-wearing crime fighter is getting such a raw deal. Could this be the work of Chairface Chippendale? -- Paul Gaita

Product Description

Evil-doers, check your rear-view mirror because justice is closer than it appears! Everyone's favorite big blue hero, along with his trusty moth sidekick Arthur, is back for more hilarious adventures in THE TICK VS. SEASON TWO. With a heart as big as the moon and as warm as bathwater, The Tick flexes the muscle of goodness to keep the citizens of The City safe from the strangest collection of villains yet. Season Two brings the return of -ber-villains El Seed and Brainchild, our heroes make their reality TV debuts and The Tick whittles himself a new sidekick when a woman comes between him and his old chum Arthur. With a cornucopia of laughs and thrills stuffed onto three shiny discs, THE TICK VS. SEASON TWO delivers a one-two punch of goodness straight to your home entertainment center.

4.0 out of 5 stars Again, missing an episode! May 16, 2007
First let me say that this is a five star ***** season for a five star ***** series! I drop one star because of the DVD presentation and the high price. They are charging the price of a 24 episode season set for only 12 episodes!

Buena Vista has announced that episode 15 "Alone Together" will NOT be included in this set! The reason was not given.

#14 Little Wooden Boy and the Belly of Love (9/9/95) Villain: Swiss Commandos.
Arthur goes off on a date with Carmalita on Hobby Night, so Tick builds himself a new wooden side kick. Meanwhile the Swiss Commando's are after Dr. Vahtoss' notebook.

#16 Armless but not Harmless (9/23/95) Villain: Venus, the love goddess, & Milo.
Tick & Arthur's arms get removed and attached to crude look-a-likes for a crime spree.

#17 Leonardo da Vinci and His Fightin' Genius Time Commandos (10/7/05) villain: Leonardo.
Leonardo makes a time machine & goes back in time to kidnap the greatest inventors and re-invent everything.

#18 Coach Fussell's Lament (9/30/95) villain: Brainchild & The Idea Men.
Brainchild uses his 'Nanny of the Apocalypse' to capture The Tick and turn him into a bird to match his brain.

#19 Bloomsday (10/21/95) villain: El Seed.
The return of El Seed with his newest monster Rosebud.

#20 Evil Sits Down for a Moment (11/4/95) villain: The Ottoman Empress
A villain that can animate furniture tries to take over The City.

#21 Heroes (11/11/95) villain: various.
A camera crew follows The Tick & Arthur for a day of crime fighting.

#22 Ants in the Plants! (11/18/95) villain: Betty: Queen of Ants.

3.0 out of 5 stars Why are they doing this to us?!!!!! August 12, 2007
I have been waiting for ten friggin' years for my absolute favourite cartoon to make it to dvd. What do I get for not just buying illegal bootlegs off of the internet? MISSING EPISODES!!!!!! Once again one episode is exempt, making this an incomplete set. No reason was given. I do not buy the copyright infringement rumour as parody is very legal. Every character on this show is a parody of an earlier character. This is a five star show and I cannot give it more than three for not giving fans what they want: the whole series. Shame on the makers of this dvd.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you love The Tick, support The Tick August 6, 2007
Let me start off by saying that I know how everyone feels. I agree. "Alone Together" was one of the best episodes of the season, and for me, the only one that's better is the one where they fight against the dolphin with the fish magnet. The lines, "You call that a haiku? You're just counting syllables! Get back in the water!" are burned into whatever part of my brain controls joy. Really, I understand your anger. But please, don't take it out on this DVD set, because it's not the DVD sets fault. This is a Walt Disney Studio's problem, and we should definitely blame them, and write them letters, and moan at them until they give us what we really want.

But support The Tick. And here's why. If sales of this DVD are poor, then the execs over at Walt Disney are going to decide that they failed because people weren't interested in the content, because they don't want to blame themselves. Studio execs get paid enormous salaries, all based on the idea that they don't make mistakes that cost the company lots of money. If they make that mistake, they will find something else to blame. It's what they're good at. It's why they still have their jobs, even with all those atrocious movies Disney's been peddling for the past few years.

So yeah. It stinks that this set doesn't have Alone Together. It really does. But if we want to give The Tick a chance for a truly complete collection, a collection that the studio execs are going to be willing to go to bat for, to fight for the rights to all the episodes for, then we have to prove to them that it's going to be a hit when it happens. Support the Tick. If not for you, then for me. Because this show epitomizes everything that I love about what comics can be, what television can be, and what true heroism in the face of horrid cynicism can be. Fight for the Tick, cause he'd damn well fight for you. Spoon, baby. Spoon.

4.0 out of 5 stars 5-star season on a 2-star disc March 18, 2008
The Tick is still the gold standard when it comes to children's cartoons. Unfortunately several problems plague this disc, which makes it difficult to recommend purchasing it, in spite of the high quality and sheer fun of the show.

In this season we learn all about the origin of Arthur's suit in "The Little Wooden Boy and the Belly of Love". The villianous Venus steals Arthur and the Tick's arms and uses them on crime-committing robots in "Armless but Not Harmless". Die Fladermaus falls in love with a villianess in "Evil Sits Down for a Moment". The Tick and Arthur appear on a reality show, "Heroes". And we meet an entire alien race that looks just like Arthur in "The Tick vs. the Big Nothing". Of course, it is not the plots of the shows (summarised in other reviews) that is the fun of the show. No, it is the absurd villians, the even more absurd heroes, and the Tick's social commentary (mostly unwitting) and head-shaking malaproposes that gives the show it's enduring charm.

For me, the highlights of this season are threefold - (1) the battle between our heroes and the Deadly Bulb, caught on camera on the reality show "Heroes." It is especially fun for those old enough to remember Cops, as it is clearly meant to be a parody (or homage?) of that show. (2) the introduction of Carmalita as a love interest to Arthur in "The Little Wooden Boy and the Belly of Love" - this subplot plays out more in Season 3, but it's fun to see the Tick become jealous of Arthur seeing someone else on craft night. (3) My favourite episode of the season is far and away "The Tick vs.

Not quite as good and funny as the live show, but still one of the best superhero cartoons I've seen, if you like them quirky.
