Move Over - The Tick's Back and Available on DVD!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Tick Complete Season One  [DVD] (DVD)
I have been looking out for this series on DVD for years and I'm so glad it's finally been released in the UK.
This was shown on Terrestrial TV in the 90's in a weekly tea-time slot and attracted the same kind of audience as the simpsons does now. It is really for adults but it is the kind of show you can watch with younger children who enjoy it on a completely different level - especially children who are going through that 'super-hero' phase.
'The Tick' is a genuine super-hero - as is Arthur, a side-kick in a moth outfit who when encouraged to choose a battle-cry to shout when running into combat comes up with "NOT IN THE FACE! NOT IN THE FACE!"
Along with the cream of super-heroes and the most villainous of villains, this ticks (pardon the pun) just about every box.
Not directly comparable - but those who love The Simpsons, Futurama and similar should really enjoy The Tick.
