Arthur, Interrupted
Episode Eight, Season One

Original air date: 1-24-2002

Arthur, Interrupted

Alas, this was the last live episode of The Tick aired. It was actually one of the first taped, though, so some of the elements from the beginning of the show are back (The Panda, The Cape) but there isn't anything off chronologically. The premise of this episode is that Arthur has to tell his mother and sister (Dot) that he has chosen to be a superhero and that he lives with the Tick.

They continue the subtle insinuations that being a superhero is roughly analogous to being gay, and that's pretty funny. Mom and Dot eventually have Arthur committed by Francis Peacock (Dave Foley), a superhero psychiatrist who can 'cure' their 'addiction'. Peacock really just seems to have jealousy issues and wants to destroy the heroes, but hey, no one's perfect.

Tick rapidly goes (more) insane without Arthur and eventually Batmanuel, Captain Liberty, and Tick bust him out.

The funniest things in this episode are (1) hearing Tick say 'we're makin' gravy without the lumps! (an Evil Midnight Bomber quote from The Tick vs. The Tick) and (2) seeing Francis Peacock dancing around in his office wearing Arthur's moth suit and listening to the theme from 'Greatest American Hero'
