Synopsis
Sallying forth on a quest for Pez, The Tick ends up helping a gum-shoe detective take on a bevy of hideous criminals as well as a pit full of man-eating alligators and cows, all in a bid to keep their leader, Chairface Chippendale, from writing his name on the moon. The Tick adopts his in-famous and little plagarized battle cry--"SPOON!"
