We gave it a B+

Equally endowed with Superman’s righteousness and Bizarro’s cluelessness, the Tick packed a punch of brainy, brawny satire in Fox’s Saturday-morning lineup. Even after a decade, this lo-fi anomaly (not to be confused with Fox’s 2001-02 live-action series) hasn’t aged a bit. Because, c’mon: a poker-faced speech about why giant clowns and anarchy don’t mix? Never gets old. EXTRAS None. In fact, The Tick vs. Season One cheats you out of a first-season episode (”The Tick vs. the Mole Men”).
