The comical misadventures of Eek, a kind-hearted anthropomorphic purple cat who finds himself in constant mortal danger while trying to help others. The show had two more segments - The Terrible Thunderlizards and Klutter.
Washington, D.C. has a new defender: Freakazoid (Paul Rugg). The comedy and insanity never stop when he's around, and he's only one of the weird heroes of the series. It's better than a nice tub of good things.

Hero for hire, Walter Melon, is the one to call when heroes from movies, TV, literature or mythology need someone to replace them in their stories. Likewise, Melon's archenemy, Sneero, gets to play most of the villains.
After "crashing" the super hero convention in Reno, the nigh invulnerable blue-clad super hero, the Tick, is deemed the protector of "The City." On his first patrol he runs (more like "falls") into Arthur, an accountant in a moth costume. They soon strike up a partnership. When the villainous and muffled idea men threaten to flood The City, the Tick and Arthur come to the rescue. Along the way we meet Die Fledermaus, American Maid, and the Caped Chameleon. The Human Bullet cameos.Written by

The name of the Batman spoof Die Fledermaus is frequently misheard by viewers (who watch the un-subtitled version and thus have not seen the name spelled out) as "Deflator Mouse" and is listed as such in some Internet discussions. Die Fledermaus is an Austrian opera by Johann Strauss, where one character briefly wears a bat costume. "Die" means "The" and "Fledermaus" means "Bat". Technically this German word for bat means "flying mouse" or "mouse of the sky", as do the names of this animal in several other European languages. E.g. Russian "letuchaya muish", and Spanish "murciélago" (from an archaic dialect, of which the modern form would be "ratón del cielo"). Some German-speaking cultures have changed the animal name of "Fledermaus" to "Fledertiere" ("flying animal") to be more accurate, as bats are not closely related to mice. See more »
The Tick is really one of the most hilarious and original cartoons I've seen in a while. It's about a Stupid and clueless but good-hearted Superhero called the Tick (when asked if he could destroy the world he says "Egad, I hope not. That's where I keep all my stuff"). When he moves to The City he meets up with a meek accountant who becomes his sidekick. Based on the Comic book of the same name, the Tick has proven itself repetedly that superhero spoofs still work. Watch it when you can.
