Greetings, chums! The Tick has been entertaining us in various media for over 25 years. The Wild Blue Yonder is a fun character, often waffling between silly and profound, while telling offbeat superhero tales. In this episode we briefly discuss his comic origins before discussing his rise to popularity through the animated series on Fox Kids. We also talk about the two live action iterations, first on Fox and then on Amazon Prime. We talk about why the character endures, what our favorite incarnations are, and how we’d like the Tick’s adventures to continue. We also discuss his supporting cast and the crazy, offbeat villains that have been such a signature for the show.

This week’s five minute controversy asked why Hawkeye wasn’t in the Infinity War trailer.

This week Eric; Joe; and newcomer, Toni, join the cast.
