The Comet Club
Where the heroes of the City are always welcome
Mighty Agrippa - Roman God of the Aquaduct

Agrippa
Roman God of the Aquaduct

Mighty Agrippa has a small role in the cartoon, but slightly more in the comic. His power is to instantly move huge volumes of water from one place to another, and he's one of the only Gods to show up in the Tick universe. In the cartoon, he shows up at the Comet Club in The Tick vs. The Tick.

Appearances: The Tick vs. The Tick, HEROES

Agrippa was voiced by Jess Harnell

American Maid

American Maid

American Maid is one of the most competent heroes in The City. She fights crime by throwing her high-heeled shoes at villains. One of the more interesting subplots of the Tick cartoon is the implied intimate relationship between American Maid and Die Fledermaus. This began in episode one (The Tick vs. The Idea Men) when she calls Die Fledermaus "Afraid of commitment" and he calls her "Miss Intimacy" - the two continue to argue as the Tick stops the Idea Men's nefarious plot. American Maid doesn't appear in the comics, but a similar character appears in the new live action series, Captain Liberty.

Appearances: The Tick vs. The Idea Men, The Tick vs. Chairface Chippendale, The Tick vs. The Tick, The Tick vs. Pineapple Pokopo, The Tick vs. Proto Clown, The Tick vs. Arthur's Bank Account, Little Wooden Boy and the Belly of Love, Alone Together, Bloomsday, Coach Fussell's Lament, Evil Sits Down for a Moment, HEROES, Ants in the Pants!, The Tick Loves Santa!, That mustache Feeling

American Maid was voiced by Kay Lenz

Baby Boomerangutuang

Baby Boomerangutuang

Baby Boomerangutuang is another of the Tick's students. He is also a tax accountant who worked with Arthur before he became a superhero. His superpower is to throw dolls at the villains and the dolls come back like boomerangs (except for the middle child, which is explosive). His battle cry is 'It's OK to play with dolls!'.

Appearances: Tick vs. Education

Baby Boomerantutuang was voiced by Kevin Schon

Big Shot

Big Shot

Big Shot is a hilarious spoof of the Punisher, right down to the skull. Big Shot starts out in The Tick vs. The Idea Men as a gun-toting maniac who shoots everything in his way. Big Shot goes into therapy and later in the series he appears often as a recovering violence addict. It is truly hilarious to see him urging The Tick and Barry to settle their differences peacefully in The Tick vs. The Tick.

Eventually, in Tick vs. Dot and Neil's Wedding, Big Shot gets a new gig as a wedding photographer (Freeze!!! <click>) but it isn't revealed if he's given up his superhero ways (he still carries around at least on hand-grenade...)

Appearances: The Tick vs. The Idea Men, The Tick vs. The Tick, HEROES, Tick vs. Dot and Neil's Wedding

Big Shot was voiced by Kevin Schon

Bi-Polar Bear

Bi-Polar Bear

Bi-Polar Bear is a superhero with bi-polar disorder. His first appearance is when he shouts "This looks like a job for Bi-Polar Bear! But I just can't get out of bed this month..." He is an amusing character, but he doesn't appear often enough.

Appearances: The Tick vs. The Idea Men, The Tick vs. Dinosaur Neil, HEROES

Bi-Polar Bear was voiced by ? If you know, let me know.

Blowfish Avenger

Blowfish Avenger

The Blowfish Avenger is the sworn protector of New Rochelle. He was assigned to this city by the superhero council in Reno, where he was onstage trying out for protection duty right before The Ticks turn. His superpower is to puff up exposing his pointy spines, but whe puffed up he is practically immobile. He doesn't have any lines, but he's still pretty funny, especially when the judges say "Way to go blow!". He later shows up as a guest at Dinsoaur Neil and Dot's wedding party.

Appearances: The Tick vs. The Idea Men, That mustache Feeling

The Blowfish Avenger had no lines.

Blowhole

Blowhole

Blowhole is a long-distance running whale. He ran across the United States from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean in the 60's and returned in Little Wooden Boy and the Belly of Love where he runs from Atlantic to Pacific. He also swallows The Tick, Arthur, Carmalita, and The Little Wooden Boy as he's running through the City. To get out, the other heroes light Little Wooden Boy on fire to make smoke; so he became the first superhero destroyed in the line of duty in the Tick series.

Appearances: Little Wooden Boy and the Belly of Love

Blowhole had no lines.

Caped / Crusading Chameleon

Caped Chameleon

The Caped Chameleon shows up often in the first year of the series, but not much later. His first appearance is in The Tick vs. The Idea Men where he and Die Fledermaus are swinging on ropes and collide in mid-air even as The Tick arrives to see that The City needs his help. The Caped Chameleon's power is to change color to match the background, but his great weakness is that he can't do plaid. I liked this character and I wonder why he was removed.

He is named the Caped Chameleon in The Tick vs. The Idea Men, but Arthur calls him the Crusading Chameleon in The Tick vs. Mr. Mental, so who knows what his real name is.

Appearances: The Tick vs. The Idea Men, The Tick vs. Dinosaur Neil, The Tick vs. Mr. Mental, The Tick vs. Arthur's Bank Account, HEROES

The Caped Chameleon was voiced by Rob Paulsen

Captain Decency

Captain Decency

Captain Decency was the leader of The Decency Squad; an elite band of superheroes in the 1930's and 40's. Now he lives in a nursing home and naps a lot...

Appearances: Grandpa Wore Tights

Captain Decency was voiced by Jim Cummings

Captain Lemming

Captain Lemming

Captain Lemming only gets a few seconds of screen time, but he still manages to spew one of the greatest lines in The Tick vs. The Idea Men, "Come on spine, work with me!" This is an interesting idea for a character, but he doesn't appear often enough to really be relevant.

Appearances: The Tick vs. The Idea Men, The Tick vs. Dinosaur Neil

Captain Lemming was voiced by Mickey Dolenz

Captain Mucilage

Captian Mucilage

Captian Mucilage is a member of the Civic Minded Five. He shoots sticky glue out of his hands and head; his battle cry is "Let's get sticky!" He's actually very funny; of all the Civic Minded Five he's probably the most entertaining except for The Carpeted Man.

Appearances: The Tick vs. El Seed, The Tick vs. Proto Clown, That mustache Feeling, HEROES, Tick vs. Arthur

Captain Mucilage was voiced by Rob Paulsen

Carmalita

Carmalita

Carmalita is the daughter of the mad scientist Dr. Vahtoss. She is also the main love interest of Arthur. Unfortunately, she is annoying so I won't write too much more about her.

Appearances: Little Wooden Boy and the Belly of Love, Sidekicks Don't Kiss, Tick vs. Arthur, Tick vs. Science

Carmalita was voiced by Jennifer Hale

The Carpeted Man

The Carpeted Man

The Carpeted Man is a member of the Civic Minded Five. He shuffles his feel along the ground building up static electricity that he uses to shock the villains. It actually works pretty well, but the carpeted suit is warm so he tends to overheat. Of all the Civic Minded Five he's probably the most funny. His secret identity may have been compromised; he's referred to at least once as "Gary"...

Appearances: The Tick vs. El Seed, The Tick vs. Proto Clown, Tick vs. Arthur

The Carpeted Man was voiced by Pat Fraley

Courderoy Cordova

Cordova is a man of mystery and night-watchman at the Aztec ruins. He isn't too much of a hero, but he sort of has a arch-enemy; when asked about the Aztecs he replies that he "hates those guys". About the funniest thing about him is that he refers to the Tick as Amigo Azul.

Appearances: Sidekicks Don't Kiss

Courderoy Cordova Phillip Proctor

Die Fliedermaus

Die Fledermaus

Die Fledermaus is one of the more popular characters. He is vaguely Batmanlike, in that he has a black costume and cape and uses gadgets to get around. He rarely fights crime at all, and is more interested in how he looks in his cape than anything else. Die Fledermaus's ego and cowardice combine to make him one of the funniest characters in the series, and his implied intimate relationship with American Maid provides chuckles throughout the series. Die Fledermaus is one of the characters that has been chosen to appear in the live action series (Bat Manuel).

Doorman

Doorman

Doorman is the sworn defender of the Comet Club. His role is to card the superheroes and make sure that no Sidekicks get into the club...interestingly enough, though, his super doorman senses don't extend to supervillains.

Appearances: The Tick vs. The Tick

Doorman was voiced by Maurice LaMarche

Eclair

Éclair

Éclair is the sworn defender of Antwerp, Belgium. She is sent to The City by the superhero exchange program where she teams up with Arthur to defeat the wicked Breadmaster and his henchcookies, the Gingerbreadmen.

Her powers are lightning themed; Éclair means lightning in French. She can fly and shoot lightning bolts out of her eyes. Her sidekick is Blitzen.

Appearances: Tick vs. Europe

Éclair was voiced by Lisa Raggio

Feral Boy

Feral Boy

Feral Boy is one of the Civic Minded Five. He seems to be a boy who was raised by wolves and often barks and growls like a dog (he can't really speak; he talks like Scooby Doo). Ironically enough, he is the one who drives the Civic Minded Five's car.

Appearances: The Tick vs. El Seed, The Tick vs. Proto Clown, The Tick Loves Santa!, That mustache Feeling, Tick vs. Arthur

Feral Boy was voiced by Kevin Schon

Fishboy

Fishboy
Prince of Atlantis

Fishboy is a young superhero that appears occasionally. He doesn't seem to have any powers, but he has to stay moist.

Appearances: The Tick vs. The Tick, Ants in the Pants!

Fishboy was voiced by Cam Clarke

The Flying Squirrel

The Flying Squirrel

The Flying Squirrel is one of Tick's superhero students. She's very timid and doesn't have any overt powers, but it is revealed that she can call squirrels to support her in battle. Her battle cry is 'I like Squirrels!'. I get the impression we are supposed to be moved by her finding her courage and we are supposed to feel good that she's the only one with the empathy to figure out that Uncle Creamy isn't all that evil, but I still don't like her.

Appearances: Tick vs. Education

The Flying Squirrel was voiced by Laraine Newman

Four Legged Man

Four-Legged Man

Four Legged Man is the leader of the Civic Minded Five. He actually has four legs, but doesn't seem to have any powers or abilities. Other than a spoof of other team leaders, he's kind of mundane.

Appearances: The Tick vs. El Seed, The Tick vs. Proto Clown, HEROES, The Tick Loves Santa!, That mustache Feeling, Tick vs. Arthur

Four-Legged Man was voiced by Roger Rose

Gesundheit

Gesundheit is a student at the Tick's superhero school. His superpower is that he is super-allergic to everything, including his own perspiration. His super-sneezes can be used to propel himself skyward, providing a bit of flight (a true superpower). His battle cry is 'It's sneezing time'

Appearances: Tick vs. Education

Gesundheit was voiced by Paul Eiding

The Human Bullet

Human Bullet

The Human Bullet lives in the suburbs and has his sidekick (son) fire him out of a giant cannon in the general direction of evil. It's nice to see a superhero doesn't have to actually live in the city he protects, but Bullet rarely makes any difference. One time he actually ruins a plan; as he hits Dinosaur Neil just after The Tick manages to get him to eat a giant aspirin, and then Neil coughs it up.

Appearances: The Tick vs. The Idea Men, The Tick vs. Dinosaur Neil, The Tick vs. The Breadmaster, Alone Together, Bloomsday

Human Bullet was voiced by Jess Harnell

Valkyrie

Jet Valkyrie

The Valkyrie appears in The Tick vs. The Tick as a guest of the Comet Club. She has a first name and if I could hear I'd put it down (I think it's Jet). Valkyrie's most interesting lines come when she is rebuffing the advances of an over-amorous Die Fledermaus; but I'd a lot of them before.

Appearances: The Tick vs. The Tick, HEROES

Jet Valkyrie was voiced by Susan Silo

Johnny Polite

Johnny Polite

Johnny Polite was the sidekick of Captain Decency and a member of the Decency Squad. I have to assume that he was obliterated somewhere; when The Terror wished for The Decency Squad using the Desire-O-Vac he didn't get Johnny.

Appearances: Grandpa Wore Tights

Johnny Polite was voiced by Cam Clarke

Jungle Janet

Jungle Janet

Jungle Janet is one of the Civic Minded Five. She doesn't seem to have a battle cry or any special powers, but she does have some of the whole Tarzan thing going for her (only she can speak perfect English)

Appearances: The Tick vs. El Seed, The Tick vs. Proto Clown, HEROES, Tick vs. Arthur

Jungle Janet was voiced by Susan Silo

The Living Doll

The Living Doll

The Living Doll was probably the most amusing member of The Decency Squad. He is a russian doll that splits open at the waist to reveal...another Living Doll! Split doll #2 in half and you get...another Living Doll! The Human Ton goes through about 20 Living Dolls to get down to one about 10" high and grabbed him with Handy, but Living Doll escapes by ripping his other eye off...

The Living Doll also had a memorable battle cry; "I'm filled with tinier men!" Initially, it doesn't make much sense when he utters it several times before the end of the episode, but it just makes it even funnier when we finally see him split up.

Appearances: Grandpa Wore Tights

The Living Doll was voiced by Kevin Schon

The Mole King

The Mole King

The Mole King came to the surface world on vacation and promptly fell in love with supermodel Mindy Moleford. The Tick has to protect him from a Lava Man assassin while he pursues his amorous goals.

I thought he was pretty annoying and was actually rooting for the Lava Man. Oh, well...

Appearances: The Tick vs. The Mole Men

The Mole King was voiced by Dan Castellaneta

Mr. Exciting

Mr. Exciting

Mr. Exciting is a student of The Tick's superhero school. He doesn't have any powers, per se, but he is possessed of incredible energy; he's usually running rings around the class. If there's ever a Tick movie, I nominate my friend David Stebbins to play Mr. Exciting; he wouldn't even need to use too much speed to fit the role.

His battle cry is 'It's Great to be Alive!!'

Appearances: Tick vs. Education

Mr. Exciting was voiced by Danny Man

Plungerman!

Plungerman

Plungerman is a plumber who inadvertantly stops Venus and Milo in a caper during Armless but not Harmless. He has the mightly superpower of unclogging toilets and venturing into the Ladies Room to thwart Evil...

Later in the same episode he proves he is really super when he uses a wrench to reattach The Tick and Arthur's arms (which had been shot off with Milo's newest invention)

Appearances: Armless but not Harmless

Plungerman was voiced by Kevin Schon

Sarcastro

Sarcastro

Sarcastro is one of the students of Tick's superhero class, and he holds the distinction of being the only one to flunk. He fights crime with the razor sharp sting of sarcasm, but he needs to improve his aim as he usually uses sarcasm on the other superheroes as well. Some of his lines are absolutely hilarious, and it's too bad he doesn't show up until the last episode of the series; they could have really used him.

Appearances: Tick vs. Education

Sarcastro was voiced by Charlie Adler

Sewer Urchin

Sewer Urchin is the sworn defender of the sewers of The City. He lives in a large, palatial expanse in the sewers where he has barrels of money and is quite cultured. Unfortunately, no one is willing to look past his aroma to learn of the character underneath. "Stinky" doesn't seem to mind too much, though, as he takes it all in stride.

Sewer Urchin really comes into his own as a hero in
Tick vs. Filth, when Tick and Arthur are exposed to the dangers of the sewer, and they come to realize that Urchin is actually wicked cool.

Sufferage Jet

Suffragette

Suffragette is another member of the Decency Squad. I wasn't sure about her name, but her battle cry is "I vote for justice" so it seems appropriate.

Appearances: Grandpa Wore Tights

Suffratette was voiced by Susan Blu

The Tick!

The Tick is Mighty!
The Tick is the sworn protector of The City, and he's the reason this show is so hilarious. You have to see it to believe it!

Appearances: The Tick vs. The Idea Men, The Tick vs. Chairface Chippendale, The Tick vs. Dinosaur Neil, The Tick vs. Mr. Mental, The Tick vs. The Breadmaster, The Tick vs. El Seed, The Tick vs. The Tick, The Tick vs. The Uncommon Cold, The Tick vs. Brainchild, The Tick vs. Pineapple Pokopo, The Tick vs. The Mole Men, The Tick vs. Proto Clown, The Tick vs. Arthur's Bank Account, Little Wooden Boy and the Belly of Love, Alone Together, Armless but not Harmless, Bloomsday, Coach Fussell's Lament, Leonardo DaVinci and his Fightin' Genius Time Commandos!, Evil Sits Down for a Moment, HEROES, Ants in the Pants!, The Tick Loves Santa!, The Tick vs. The Big Nothing, The Tick vs. Reno, Nevada, Grandpa Wore Tights, That mustache Feeling, Tick vs. Dot and Neil's Wedding, Sidekicks Don't Kiss, Tick vs. Arthur, Devil in Diapers, Tick vs. Filth, Tick vs. Europe, Tick vs. Science, Tick vs. Prehistory, Tick vs. Education

The Tick was voiced by Townsend Coleman

Dr. Vahtoss

Dr. Vahtoss

Dr. Vahtoss is a mad scientist. He is the father of Carmalita and the inventor of Arthur's flying suit. He figures prominently in several second season episodes after he is rescued from the belly of Blowhole by Little Wooden Boy.

Appearances: Little Wooden Boy and the Belly of Love, Tick vs. Science

Dr. Vahtoss was voiced by Steve Susskind

The Visual Eye

The Visual Eye

Visual Eye is a member of the Decency Squad. He seems to be used as a scout; he can fire his eyes out of their sockets and use them to spy on supervillains from far away...

His eyes must be really tough, too, because The Human Ton stepped on them and they were OK.

Appearances: Grandpa Wore Tights

The Visual Eye was voiced by Pat Fraley

The Whats

The Whats

The Whats are a squirrelly race of cowards that kidnap The Tick to stop their ancient enemies, The Heys, who were trying to destroy the Universe. These guys are pretty hilarious; first off, the only word in their language is "What" and second their spaceship runs on fear. When they run out of fear, they are forced to hook up Arthur who of course refills their tanks to capacity, allowing them to use Lint Warp to escape The Heys' ultimate weapon, the Infinity Ball. It's also amazing how much comminicating they can do when the only word in their language is "What"

Appearances: The Tick vs. The Big Nothing
