Episode Twenty-one, Season Two

Original air date: 11/11/1995

This episode is funny, but not one of the best. The Tick and Arthur are appearing on HEROES, a COPS style TV show that chronicles superheroes. Fortunately, they manage to run into The Deadly Bulb (Pigleg) and so there is some good footage for the show.

Probably the most entertaining thing in this episode is the Tick being used as a giant lightbulb filament. He thinks he is a new star and tries to warm the solar system while Arthur flutters around (moths around a lightbulb...). Of course, American Maid shows up to save everyone, and The Tick has to come to grips with the idea that he's not really a star after all...

The Tick:
I'm sure millions of viewers are out there just wondering what it's like to wear the tights of justice…well, it's tingly. It's uncomfortable, but it gets the job done.
Arthur informs me with his watch that evil will wait not a second longer!
Everybody into the pool!
Close call, huh. Here's a little tip; leap BEFORE you look!
Next time evil tries to catch us with our pants down, they'll get a face full of kitchen!
Normally the lulls don't bunch up like this…
Deadly Bulb! I'm about to write you a reality check! Or would you prefer the cold, hard cash of truth?
I'll bet my bottom dollar that four story lightbulb has something to do with the Deadly Bulb.
Roof Pig! Most Unexpected!
I got me a celestial body now!
Oh, look, a little lumpy white planet! It's a chatty misshapen thing devoid of life, but I will breathe my warmth upon it…
Crime has a bossonova beat.
Evil's out there making hand-crafted mischief for the swapmeet of villainy!

The Deadly Bulb:
To lure a superhero to his doom, you need irresistible bait…that's what sidekicks are for.
Now The Tick is being processed and prepared for his doom.
