I was aware of Ben Edlund's comic, but I became a fan of The Tick through his animated TV series. I have seen many comic and superhero parodies, but this one was the most well done for me. The creators had a lot of fun with the genre, but you never got the feeling that they were looking down on it. And The Tick himself is a great character, you have to love his enthusiasm.
The live action series was very short lived but well remembered. I remember watching Patrick Warburton in it and being amazed that such a show even made it to air, it was so different from everything else. It was nice to see that Bat-Manuel went on to become the Mayor of Gotham City in The Dark Knight, though!
