For the first time ever, the animated, hilarious adventures of that big blue, somewhat confused superhero The Tick will be available on DVD. The Tick vs. Season One features The Tick and his hapless sidekick Arthur in the original animated series' twelve sidesplitting episodes. A sly and comic satire of superheroes, The Tick features clever humor and outrageous characters in the mold of such animated hits as "The Simpsons" and "King of the Hill." Available for U.S. $34.99 (SRP) and Canada $37.99 (SRP) on 2-disc DVD August 29, 2006 from Buena Vista Home Entertainment.
In The Tick vs. Season One, fans are introduced to The Tick, a muscle-bound, good-natured and hysterically perplexed superhero. Along with his sidekick Arthur, a one-time accountant who wants to join the ranks of do-gooders, the Tick takes on all manner of riotously funny supervillains, in a satire of superheroes that is loaded with jokes and pop culture references. The Tick and Arthur's super-allies include American Maid, Sewer Urchin, Die Fledermaus, the Caped Chameleon and The Civic-Minded Five - and each have their own bizarre personality traits and neuroses. The colorful bad guys include The Idea Men, The Breadmaster, El Seed, The Uncommon Cold, and more.
The Tick vs. Season One features a voice cast of veteran voice-over talent, including Townsend Coleman as The Tick, Micky Dolenz (TV's "The Monkees") as Arthur, Cam Clarke as Die Fledermaus, Kay Lenz as American Maid, and Jess Harnell as Sewer Urchin. Guest stars include Roddy McDowall as The Breadmaster, among others.
The Tick won two coveted animation Annie awards in 1997 for "Best Individual Achievement In Creative Supervision" and "Best Individual Achievement For Writing." The animated series and its preceding comic book series would later inspire a live-action television show. The Tick created by Ben Edlund.
The Tick comes to DVD August 29 from Buena Vista Home Entertainment.
