Toon Disney has been playing The Tick recently, which is great, and it has been lots of fun rewatching the show. However, any time you air a mid 90s cartoon on current TV in syndication, you end up loosing a couple of minutes of content in the process (which is why I can’t wait for The Tick on DVD, oh please, oh please.)
Having quoted the Tick a lot in college, there are a few places where I’ve noticed the cuts. One was tonight, when the interview sequence was cut from “Can you destroy the earth with your mind?” to “Can you destroy the earth?”. You loose a little bit of Edlund in that edit, but it’s bearable. However, in the first episode they actually completely remove the scene with Bi-Polar Bear. Yes, I know it wouldn’t be politically correct now, but it wasn’t back then either, during the heart of political correctness. 🙂
Please… The Tick on DVD, then I’ll be able to see all the old eps in their true glory.
