Ted said: "hmmm...there's obviously at least some interest here. does anyone have any ideas of how we can get this mentioned? petition? contacts? e-mail? knocking on their door?"

If anyone knows of something official I would be all for it. I think there is a site to start up petitions like what happened with Willy Wonka, but I don't know that we would get a huge turnout. I'm hoping Peter happens to take a look and decides to look into this a little more.

There was a thread on this not to long ago in the Studio Feedback Forum.

Fox, you absolutely must get this one out. If for nothing more than to cross-promote the upcoming live action series. I would have to agree that this series is as funny if not funnier than the Simpsons.

It ran for 3 seasons (1994-1996) with 12 episodes a season. At about 20 minutes an episode, that is only about 12 hours of video. Any impending rights issues aside, this could easily come together as a nice "complete" box set or even broken into 3 smaller 1 season per disc issues.

Ted -
The Peter I referred to is Peter Staddon. I can't remember his exact job title off the top of my head so I won't butcher it. He works at Fox and is one of the people involved at a high level with the dvd side of their business.

My local Fox affiliate aired The Tick at 8:30 on Saturday mornings when I was in college. I struggled to get up far earlier than usual just to watch -- sometimes I stayed up all night. I was usually hungover and always half-asleep, so I would love to have the series on DVD to see what I was missing. BTW, I've seen the live-action pilot and generally liked what I saw. The casting, acting and writing was great. Needless to say, I didn't see the need for some of the changes they made to the supporting characters. The show is obviously low-budget, though this could work to its advantage. I am most worried that the comic book's premise might not be able to sustain what is essentially a sit-com for more than a season or two.

The changes to the supporting characters in the new live show were done because they were prevented from using the supporting characters from the animated series due to some sort of rights issue. I'm looking forward to the sitcom. Many critics have praised it, calling it a mix of Seinfeld and super-heroes. You can bet it's going to be not much like the cartoon though. --Rog

Oh I loved to see Tick on DVD. It would get played more then Goonies and Memento for a long time. It deserves a DVD as much as Darkwing Duck. Now to see the episode with the spaceship full of evil Arthurs and aliens who speak in the word the, I think.


[quote]

It was two civilizations... the "Heys" and the "Whats". Arthur was accused of being a Hey. I remember that episode had the powerful "infinity ball", which happened to be a floating 8-ball. Too funny!

Id by the DVDs in a heartbeat. I have been trying to find them elsewhere (but not willing to pay eb@y prices).

I _LOVE_ The Tick. It would not even take me an entire heartbeat to place the order were it available on DVD. It has laugh out loud funny parts in every single episode. "When evil is a foot, and you haven't got any arms, you gotta use your head!"

I'll just add my vote here. This is easily one of my all-time favorite cartoons and I've been wanting a dvd release of this ever since I got my dvd player. "Ticks are supposed to suck blood. Do you suck blood?" "Uh, yeah, I, uh, I suck blood all the time! Look pal, I've got a straw right here!"

I know a lot of us hoped that the new live-action The Tick show would help bring about a DVD release of the cartoons, which I want badly (see my sig).



The live-action show was cancelled as of yesterday. The final show airs the last week of this month. My wife spotted this news at AICN last night, but right now I can't get to their site for some reason so I can't get the exact date for you.



I still want the animated series. They can through in the complete set of live-action shows as a "supplement". Posted Image

I would also buy a set of Tick DVDs if they were released. The episodes would have to be in order, of course.

It would be nice to have the live action show included with a boxed set of the animated series.

I'd love to have both the live action series as well as the animated series on DVD. We've been watching old VHS taped-off-of-TV copies of The Tick animated series here at work in the conference room. Meetings usually follow the presentation, so Tick-isms abound. Lots of fun.
Luckily, right at that moment, an unconscious Argentinean fell through my roof.

He was quickly joined by a dwarf dressed as a nun.

Count me OUT. Posted Image I think the tick animated serries was the worst thing ever. Posted Image What a waste of space on a DVD shelf that would be, they should not waste their time releasing something as lame as the animated tick serries when they could focus on getting other more worthy programs out on DVD. Admit it, wouldn't you rather see a great cinematic masterpeice like "howard the duck" see the light of day than something as stupid and non-hillarious as "The Tick"? I mean come on, it's no contest!



Will



PS I claimed to like the tick in a few posts back, I attribute that to the full moon driving me insane. I obviously was deluded as I can't think of a single reason why anyone would enjoy "The Tick".



The above post in no way reflects reality, "The Tick" is by far the serries I most want to see available on DVD. I just figured we needed a devil's advocate.

It's unfortunate the live-action TICK was cancelled so soon. FOX did a lousy job of promoting it - hell, they didn't promote it _at all_. If an eager fan can't even remember when it's on, how can it gather more viewers?



Back on topic...



I want both the animated and live-action series on DVD. Posted Image

Hmmmm, I'm surprised there isn't a petition for this. Usually topics of this nature (and length!) point to a petition somewhere on the net. The Tick is certainly worthy of a petition to Fox, given some of the other dreck which generates petitions! On the other hand, do these petitions really work?
