This series did not run for very long, but reached cult status nonetheless. It originally aired from September 10, 1994 to November 27, 1996 on Fox Kids for 36 episodes of 30 minutes each and 3 seasons.

It was was an adaptation of the New England Comics superhero, The Tick focused on a super hero who was well known for his "Spooooooon!" battle cry and his skin-tight blue suit.

Unlike the comic book version of the hero, an asylum escapee, in the animated version he crashes a superhero convention to win the "protectorship" of The City. It was mainly a superhero parody. The character was voiced by Townsend Coleman and the hero's sidekick, Arthur, by Micky Dolenz for Season 1; having been replaced by Rob Paulsen during Seasons 2 and 3.

Other featured characters were Die Fledermaus, a shallow and self-absorbed Batman parody; Sewer Urchin, a version of Aquaman; and American Maid, a superheroine who mixed features of Wonder Woman and Captain America.

The Tick was nominated for several Annie and Emmy awards, winning two Annies in 1995.
