The Tick vs. Brainchild
Episode Nine, Season One

Original air date: 11/5/1994
The Tick vs. Brainchild

OK; I don't really like Brainchild. This episode didn't do too much for me, and the first time I saw it I remember being disappointed. Charles (Brainchild) is meant to be funny but he's really just annoying. Charles's sister Amelia is supposed to be cute, but, again, she just ends up being annoying. About the only amusing things in this episode happen when Charles's progressive parents lecture Arthur on raising children without punishing them while Charles is trying to destroy the Earth.

The scene with Tick and Arthur heating up a microwave dinner was pretty good, though; it's always to see the heroes domestic sides. The shopping trip through the megalomart was also kind of funny.

Skippy the Robot Dog

The final fate of Skippy the Robot Dog

I did like Skippy the robot dog, though, and there are some good lines in here dealing with microwaves and such, but in all this is not one of the episodes I cry about when I realize the show has been taken off the air again.

This episode features these Superheroes:
The Tick
and Arthur

This episode features these Supervillains:
, Skippy


The Tick:
This looks like a job for…legal tender!
Being here is a lot like being lost, Arthur.
We merely need to find the proper here and microwaves will follow.
Off to find the elusive here, chum!
Put the moon back, demon waif!
Well, if reinforcing family values is my fault, I guess my supershoulders can take the burden!

Prepare for the wrath of Charles!
