The Tick

Toon Disney is running my favorite cartoon of all time. Thank you, TiVo. First episode I’ve seen in years and it brings the funny. I love the lines. Whoever did the voice of The Tick should get an award. He’s funny. A taste:

Every citadel of justice should have its spans as spic as we do.

Arthur, monkey outta nowhere!

Who can tell where dirty will strike next?

Don’t move, Arthur. It’s got a timer. It must be some kind of monkey bomb.

    If it weren’t for the Tick, I wouldn’t have a nickname to use for both Kevin Costner and Al Gore: “Little Wooden Boy!” šŸ˜€

  2. SayUncle Says:

    And I wouldn’t have a blog name.

    ‘sorry ’bout that, barry’ šŸ˜‰

    As a busy Hollywood voice-actor, Townsend Coleman is perhaps one of the most recognizable voices on TV. For the past 12 years, he’s been the voice of NBC’s “Must See TV” comedy promos and promos for “The Tonight Show” starring Jay Leno, “Saturday Night Live” and “Late Night with Conan O’Brien”. But the character behind the voice actually came to life in 1985, when Coleman, having just moved to Los Angeles from Cleveland, Ohio, won a chance audition for the animated hit, “Inspector Gadget”. As the voice of Corporal Capeman, Gadget’s bumbling assistant, he embarked on an entirely new career, providing the voices for some of the most memorable characters in cartoons and commercials over the past 20 years. In addition to thwarting evil as the voice of “The Tick”, Fox Kids’ hit animated series, he has provided the voice characterizations for many other popular cartoon characters as well, including Michaelangelo on the original, long-running cartoon series, “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”. He also played Waldo on “Where’s Waldo?”, Gobo on NBC’s animated “Fraggle Rock”, Scott on “Teenwolf”, Scratch on “Spacecats”, the voice of Wayne Gretzky on “Prostars”, Riot on “Jem”, Dragonflyer on “Glofriends”, Rewind on “Transformers” and many others.

    In addition to his active animation career, Coleman has also been the voice behind numerous national TV ad campaigns for clients such as Home Depot, Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes, Mattel Hot Wheels, Sunny Delight, Colgate, Jenny Craig, Blockbuster Video, Greyhound, AT&T, Eggo Waffles, Taco Bell and “Spot”, the precocious red 7-Up dot… even a few “Keebler elves” and “Raid bugs”.

    Blitzen means lightning, too?

    How many languages do you HAVE on this crazy continent?

    Can’t wait for the DVDs – I’d buy them in a heart beat.

    “Like a great blue salmon of Justice, the mighty Tick courses upstream to the very spawning ground of evil.”

    “Mustache, I will NOT be mocked by you! ”

    “Ninjas can breathe underwater! They can dodge bullets at point blank range! They can walk up the sides of buildings! They can install telephones!”

    Field Mouse! Those are his condolence cheeses.

    Speaking of the blog name, one of these days I need to collect that range time. Unless you’ve got some old accessories you’re willing to part with. šŸ™‚

    BTW, didn’t I tell you Toon Disney was running those? I started TiVo-ing them a while ago.

    Oh, and if you haven’t, you need to check out Dave The Barbarian.

  11. SayUncle Says:

    When next your up here, range time is on me. Bought a gun yet? Not sure what accessories I have that would be appropriate for you.

  12. tgirsch Says:

    Alas, our only gun remains the “plinking” gun, the Browning .22

  13. SayUncle Says:

    Other than ammo (which I can’t ship without a license) i got no accessories for it.

    Tick: It’s your turn now, Thorace-bog.
    Thrakkorzog: It’s Thrakkorzog. Thrakkorzog. With a K.
    Tick: We’re only serving humble pie, Whatchamazog.
    Thrakkorzog: For the last time, it’s…
    Tick: Thorax-and-a-bog. Four-yacks-and-a-dog.
    Thrakkorzog: No.
    Tick: Ah, laxative-log.
    Thrakkorzog: No, no, no.
    Tick: Sapsucker-frog.
    Thrakkorzog: Thrakkorzog.
    Tick: Susan?

    Pigleg was hilarious.


  16. tgirsch Says:

    Tsk. Now you’re doing it on purpose. How juvenile.

  17. Drake Says:

    Don’t forget Speak.

  18. AlanDP Says:

    My favorite is when he’s being interviewed, and the interviewer asks him: Mr. Tick, do you have the power to destroy the Earth?

    Tick: Egad! I hope not! That’s where I keep all my stuff!

  19. SayUncle Says:

    Heh. And non tick quotes:

    He’s sad because he has but one tongue with which to taste the entire world.

  20. Jay G Says:

    “I’m tathting the floor!”

  21. Cliff S. Says:

    ..and later Arthur horrified whispering:”…I can taste your back….”

    Also, the Tick after being asked to show his superhero ID:
    “I see – spelling America with a ‘k’ now, are we?”

  22. Phelps Says:

    You might want to check out The Venture Brothers. Same sort of humor. I like it a lot.

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
