A live-action series based on the adventures of big blue defender, the Tick, and his sidekick Arthur, a former accountant whose crime-fighting costume is a moth suit. Destiny deemed that these two should meet, and necessity dictated that the Tick should sleep on Arthur's fold-out sofabed. Despite their differences, they both share a common dream -- to fight evil in their city, known as The City. Accompanying them on their heroic exploits is Captain Liberty, a patriotic superperson, whose light from her torch of righteousness sends the roaches of wrong scurrying back to their dank, filthy crevices. Also joining the crusade for justice is Bat Manuel, whose Latin charm is as big as his wingspan.
