The Tick Returns with Patrick Warburton

Reboot for Amazon

SPOON! By now you may heard that The Tick will return to TV. Well at least to streaming video on Amazon. The true cherry on top of this delicious comedic superhero sundae is that the original Tick, Patrick Warburton will reprise his role. A role he played for a mere nine episodes (see video below). 

Warburton worked out a deal with Sony Television, who have held the rights since the show's 2001 cancellation, to bring back the beloved character as an Amazon pilot. With superheroes dominating on the big screen, and virtually taking over the small screen, there's no better time for a series making fun of them”. MSN TV News

What will this mean for the other actors in the series? Will David Burke and Liz Vassey reprise their roles as Arthur and Captain Liberty? I wouldn’t call Nestor Carbonell (Lost, The Dark Knight Rises, Bates Motel) a big star, but is he too busy to play Batmanuel? Only time and the all mighty dollar will tell.

Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes!

This show was great. I have the DVDs.Here's hoping they get back the writers.

 I thought the Tick thing was still in talks and nothing had been confirmed yet.   Also read a rumor that a reboot of The Greatest American Hero (another Super Hero parody) was in development at 20th Century Fox. Anyway you look at it, it appears we are destined to have Super Hero movies and TV shows flying out our butts.

I watched the cartoon as a kid. I  kind of thought for sucking blood he was on the first episode of the cartoon series blowing in a guy's face with a straw.

 The Tick was fucking awesome. I'd subscribe to amazon prime if they do this

 Warburton should be Shazam and The Rock should be Black Adam.

 I'll be honest. I would love to see The Tick on the big screen.  Hopefully Amazon doesn't drop the ball on this.

 Samson - Great call. He has the face and eyes for Shazam. The Rock is Black Adam no doubt.

Loved the cartoon but didn't like the show much because they couldn't use the characters on the show.

Die Fleidermaus and Sewer Urchin were missed.

He's getting on a bit, but YES, he also has the range to play Shazam, too!

He was in the running for Lois & Clark back in the 90s, too.

I would rather he try and do live action Brock from the other show.
