Tick cartoon was on for three seasons (36 episodes) from September
1994 through November 1996. The Tick started on Fox and then moved
to Comedy Central, but Comedy Central did not create any new episodes
and after about two years they stopped running the show. If you
want to see the Tick, you still have a few options; first, move
to Canada or Argentina. The Tick is running on the Canadian equivalent
of The Cartoon Network and it's running in Argentina Fridays at
2 a.m. Tick was recently bought by Disney and is now running on the Toon Disney cable network late at night during the week.
You can get three of the episodes, The Tick
vs. The Idea Men, The Tick vs. Chairface
Chippendale, and Tick vs. Arthur
on VHS from my products page (if Amazon still has them...). Season one has now been released on DVD, too - check it out here - The Tick (The Belated 10th Anniversary Edition.
you can download video episodes in .AVI or .MPG format using Gnutella,
Morpheus, or Kazaa; the first 2 seasons are now on rapidshare (check for links on my downloads page) or you can get them from the Tick newsgroup.
These videos are all pretty good (except for The
Tick vs. Mr. Mental; I've yet to find a copy with decent audio).
If you download an episode and it doesn't play for you, or if
it plays with no sound, you probably need a new codec. I've found
that these codecs work for all the downloaded
Finally, if you watch ebay,
you will often find copies of all 36 episodes on
for sale; they usually run about $40. Recently I've seen DVD
sets on ebay too; so that's always a possibility. Until then, sign The
Tick on VHS/DVD Petition and we'll hope we get lucky.
I've gotten some information on the unproduced Tick episodes that were going to be season four. Check it out!
I've gotten a few of the original Tick commercials. Check 'em out!
