Overview
In a world where criminals rule the streets, evil has finally met its match. There is a new protector of the weak and oppressed, the hilarious blue defender of goodness, known as ... The Tick (Patrick Warburton, TV's "Seinfeld")! Together with his sidekick Arthur (David Burke, TV's "Party of Five") and their friends – the insatiable Batmanuel (Nestor Carbonell, TV's "Suddenly Susan") and the alluring Captain Liberty (Liz Vassey, TV's "Push Nevada") – these heroes will prove they are more than just big, dumb guys in silly-looking suits. Produced by Barry Sonnenfeld (Men in Black I & II) and Barry Josephson (Like Mike) and based on the hit comic book, this hysterical 2-disc-set contains nine episodes, spanning the entire series. So let this be a warning to naughty people everywhere, for you have met ... THE TICK!
