Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })1994 Animated Series, a casual but incisive send-up of Super Hero shows (based on an independent comic by Ben Edlund written in the early '90s), featuring as its title character a super-strong, "Nigh Invulnerable" (or so he says), and (probably) insane Cloudcuckoolander with hypertrophied senses of justice and melodrama, given to bold, thoughtless action and near-incomprehensible Aesop-like pronouncements. Assisting the Tick in his daily struggle against the Forces of Evil is Arthur, a former accountant, now moth-themed hero/sidekick. Frequently joining their adventures are Die Fledermaus and American Maid, two fellow crimefighters who bear a funhouse-mirror resemblance to Batman and Captain America respectively.The Tick's adventures are evenly split between well-intentioned cluelessness and actual battles against supervillains. These villains — such as Chairface Chippendale, El Seed, Brainchild, and the Terror — are frequently just as bizarre as the Tick and his allies. Some, like the Evil Midnight Bomber (What Bombs At Midnight) ("One of these days, baby! Milkshake! Boom!"), have even developed their own fan followings.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })In every episode, this program gleefully skewers the tropes and cliches of the Super Hero genre, distorting and twisting them like Silly Putty until they can stretch no more and snap back to hit you in the face. The resulting lunacy has spawned a cult following that continues to this day.A Recap page is in progress here.In 2001, FOX attempted to revive the series in a live-action format with Patrick Warburton as The Tick, details are here.August 19 2016 saw Edlund return to the character for a brand new live action series exclusive to Amazon Prime, starring Peter Serafinowicz in the title role. The series takes a gritter approach to the setting - but not to the character.

Dirty Coward: Die Fleidermaus. Despite being a superhero we almost never see him fight crime, and for one very good reason: as soon as he sees a weapon he runs and hides. The mayor informs Tick that whenever The City turns on his Fliedermaus signal (like the Bat Signal), he disconnects his phone and leaves town.

comment
"Tick vs. Europe" was this mixed in with Visual Pun and Bilingual Bonus. The Belgian superhero-sidekick duo of Eclair and Blitzen both have names referring to lightning (éclair is French for "(flash of) lightning", blitzen is derived from the Germanic word blitznote  blits is also a valid word in Flemish Belgium, as it is a Flemish/Dutch/Afrikaans word for "lightning": so the producers either got lucky here or did their homework.), with Eclair actually being a lightning user. On top of this, an éclair is a French pastry (which is the first thing Tick thinks when he hears her name). Naturally, Eclair and Arthur have to take down a villain known as The Breadmaster.

Superhero Capital of the World: The City is so full of superheroes, the Mayor has a Bat Signal for each and every one of them and has since run out of room on his window sill to house them all. Since all sorts of shenanigans of epic proportions — from aliens to terrorists, Kaiju and too many supervillains to count — happen in The City and only a handful of them are any good at being superheroes (either due to Crippling Overspecialization or just plain cowardice), The City needs all the help it can get.

Only Sane Man: American Maid. She's likely the closest thing to a competent hero here. Arthur counts as well to an extent. Okay, the guy did want to become a hero on the first place, and was fired ("psychiatric leave") from his old desk job by showing up to the office in-costume, but next to the Tick, well...

Amazonian Beauty: Jungle Janet of the Civic-Minded Five. On one occasion, a smitten Tick tries to woo Janet with a rose and... a potato that grew on his armpit. She's also a bit of a deconstruction as she sometimes worries she isn't feminine enough. There's also Belgian superheroine Eclair, a one-shot character from "Tick vs. Europe." She is more androgynous-looking than Jungle Janet, though (for instance, compare her to her more traditionally feminine sidekick Blitzen), but this is never commented on by anyone and Die Fledermaus even hits on her (to no avail).

 The Tick / int_2a7e7af1

Limited Wardrobe: Tick and Arthur, and most of the other superheroes for that matter, are NEVER seen without their costumes, to the point where they usually sleep in them. In Tick's case, its debatable if it comes off at all. Arthur was seen without the bottom half of his suit in "Little Wooden Boy", after Swiss mercenaries stole his pants. Though given that Tick is shown doing laundry in one episode, they presumably have more clothes than just the costumes (unless it's all sheets and towels).

Hidden Depths: Most of the dumb characters get at least one such moment. The Human Ton's hidden depths actually have their own personality, the hand-puppet supervillain known as "Handy". The Flying Squirrel superhero student in "The Tick vs. Education" proved to be pretty effective with her squirrels. The Sewer Urchin gets a whole episode showing off his hidden depths.

Butt-Monkey: It seems that the Moon itself is this in the animated series. It's one thing having Chairface Chippendale using a laser to partially carve his name on it but a Galactus expy took a bite of it. So everytime something bad happens to the moon it stays this way thoughout the entire series. Lampshaded in the series' guidebook when the Tick responds "Hasn't the Moon suffered enough already?"

 The Tick / int_504a1991
comment
Body Horror: "ARTHUR! My mustache is touching my brain!" Also, The Tick's transformation in "Coach Fussel's Lament." In the episode "Armless But Not Harmless," the Tick and Arthur are struck by a ray that causes their arms to fall off. The Tick takes his sudden debrachiation in stride. Arthur... not so much. Not to mention the various, Dick Tracy esque villains, such as Zipperneck, who has a zipper on his neck that he can pull down to expose the inside of his throat to horrify his opponents, Chairface Chippendale, Bolthead and countless others. Also worthy of mention is The Deadly Bulb/Pig-Leg, who for some unknown reason has a live pig in place of his right leg. The pig is perfectly healthy and acts like a normal pig, but being attached to each other leads to some strife.

Especially so in the second episode of the live-action series, where he learns that everyone (even potatoes) can die, and after thinking about it for about a minute, gives Arthur a motivating speech that actually makes sense.

Deface of the Moon

Deface of the Moon: An aborted attempt by Chairface Chippendale to write his name. The letters "CHA" appear on the moon as a Continuity Nod. Later the Tick successfully blows up the C, but is blown off the moon before he can complete his job, leaving a "HA" on the moon. Later that episode, a Captain Ersatz of Galactus takes a bite out of the moon, which also remains. In the video game adaptation, the laser will manage to spell out "Chairface" on the moon if the Tick doesn't destroy it in time. If "Chairface" is spelled out, the time will be up and you will lose a life and start over where you left off when you fought the laser.

Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Arthur is pretty competent in a variety of things, once you look past the fact that he's in a giant moth suit all the time. Averted in Arthur's backstory in multiple adaptations: he attempted to wear his moth suit all the time at his accounting position, and this bothered the higher-ups enough that he was "encouraged" to take a leave of absence and get psychiatric help. The Tick himself qualifies, as well. When compared to most of the other "heroes" in The City, at least The Tick has the drive and focus to get the job done, with most of the city's other heroes, excepting American Maid and Sewer Urchin in sewer-related crimes, are either too weak or too cowardly to be particularly effective.

Viewers Are Geniuses: You don't have to know the then-obscurenote this was a few years before the South Park creators popularised the story and turned it into a musical historical footnote concerning the Donner Party and their descent into cannibalism, when they were trapped in the Rocky Mountains in the winter of 1846 on the way to California. But it helps your appreciation of Keith Donner, cannibal villain. note And of course a "doner" is also a style of kebab, made from what you hope is meat. It's likewise not necessary to know the Iliad, or the fight between Patroclus and Achilles, to get Handy's comment that The Tick is sulking in his tent like Achilles, but it helps.

Disney Death: In "The Tick vs. Dinosaur Neil", Arthur and the army think that the Tick is Swallowed Whole by a mutated Dinosaur Neil, though the "gulp" Neil makes indicates that it is not the Tick that he has swallowed, but rather the special aspirin pill that our blue hero tries getting him to swallow while struggling inside Neil's mouth, until he manages to get the aspirin down Neil's throat successfully. It's just that the army doesn't see the action inside Neil's mouth as much as we, the viewers, do; and just when they think they lost the Tick and are about to shoot Neil, our hero manages to open the dinosaur's mouth and escape unharmed (though covered in saliva) in front of everyone.

Christmas Episode: “The Tick Loves Santa!” is, naturally, set at Christmastime. It features the debut of Multiple Santa, a bank robber who stole a bell-ringer's costume, who gains electricity-based Self-Duplication powers after running into a neon sign and being electrocuted. The Tick wrestles with his love of Santa and the need to stop him from flooding the streets with his clones after he hijacks the local hydroelectric dam — until the real Santa shows up and snaps him out of it.

"Fantastic Voyage" Plot: "The Tick vs. Dinosaur Neil" - without as much shrinking, though - as the Tick needs to get into Dinosaur Neil's mouth and get him to swallow the aspirin in order to neutralize the dinosaur DNA in his body. "Tick vs. Dot and Neil's Wedding" plays this more-or-less straight, complete with submarine (but again, no shrinking).

Animal-Themed Superbeing: The Tick... even if he doesn't actually suck blood. Also, Arthur is not a bunny, he's a moth. (Or at least he could fly like one with his folding wings). Not to mention Sewer Urchin, Die Fledermaus, The Ant, Man-Eating Cow, Bumbling Bee, Caped Cod, Portuguese Man-of-War, Cockroach, The Praying Mantis, Blowfish Avenger, Caped Chameleon, Captain Lemming, Fishboy, The Angry Red Herring, The Fin, Octo-Raymond, Shiela Eel, and more.

World of Pun
 The Tick / int_86eea0e5
comment
World of Pun: "It's a YULE TIDE!!" Another episode had a gun that turned half The City into "some guy named Ray." Apparently there was also a "Tommy Gun" that did something similar. "Tick vs. Europe" was this mixed in with Visual Pun and Bilingual Bonus. The Belgian superhero-sidekick duo of Eclair and Blitzen both have names referring to lightning (éclair is French for "(flash of) lightning", blitzen is derived from the Germanic word blitznote  blits is also a valid word in Flemish Belgium, as it is a Flemish/Dutch/Afrikaans word for "lightning": so the producers either got lucky here or did their homework.), with Eclair actually being a lightning user. On top of this, an éclair is a French pastry (which is the first thing Tick thinks when he hears her name). Naturally, Eclair and Arthur have to take down a villain known as The Breadmaster. As well as the Donner Party association, Keith Donner, cannibal, also has a name evoking the "doner kebab", a Turkish/Greek fast food item made from reconstituted meat of unknown provenance served in a pitta bread.

A goon calls Arthur fat and in the next episode he's dieting.

Cut Lex Luthor a Check: In "The Tick Vs Reno, Nevada" the henchmen is surprised when The Fin creates a fish magnet, when he thought that the dolphin was going to do something to get their gang a lot of money. Something that a device that allows you to bring hundreds of tonnes of live fish in moments to your location without need of boats, fishermen or fishing equipment clearly can't do.

Eye Scream: One of the retired old heroes from "Grandpa Wore Tights", The Visual Eye, had the power to eject his eyeballs from their sockets with the phrase "Rocket From The Socket", and fly them around for scouting purposes. In his old age, he can no longer control them as well, and when he sends them out, they simply flop to the floor, where the Human Ton ends up slipping on them like a pair of marbles.

Anti-Hero: Parodied with Big Shot, a satire on the type of gun-toting psychotic vigilantes popular in the 90s, who's revealed to be deeply psychologically unstable and unsuited for crimefighting. Luckily, the show also averts There Are No Therapists, and Big Shot switches from a skull motif to a turtleneck.

Anal Probing: Subverted.

The thought of probing him never crossed their minds. When The Tick finally goads them into "probing" him they do so by tapping an electrical device against his elbow. He is sorely disappointed.

The Load: Die Fledermaus isn't very helpful in the best of circumstances in the cartoon, but he's awful in the video game. You can pick up an item that occasionally gives you a helper, with whom you fight back-to-back. Most of them attack when you attack, but Die Fledermaus never attacks and flies offscreen if he's hit by a single bullet. (Also, because you're back-to-back, he restricts you to only facing left while he's around.)

Jerkass: Barry, A.K.A. "The Tick" (not the Tick we know and love), big time. In his debut episode "The Tick vs The Tick" people think he's a hero just because he's rich and his brother in law owns The Comet Club, but acts like a jerk and is a Smug Super. When the regular Tick, Arthur, Die Fledermaus, and Sewer Urchin came to the club, Barry attempted to beat The (real) Tick up because The Tick "stole his superhero name", knocked out Big Shot when he was trying to help him, and tried to force The Tick to give up his name by pinning him under his shield. Thankfully Arthur arrived to tell him of the Mad Bomber in the club, which distracted him long enough for The Tick to regain his strength and finish Barry off. It's also implied Barry lost his name because of his actions.

comment
Baleful Polymorph: In the episode "Coach Fussell's Lament," Brain Child uses one of his inventions to turn the Tick into a two-headed bluebird that only speaks high school French and lays chocolate eggs. Later, as Arthur tries to reverse the transformation, he is briefly turned into a flatworm, a chimp, an ant, a sock, and a cow before his sidekick finally finds the button marked "NORMAL."
