It is more inspirational, Iíd say, with the Tick. Because once you grasp or realize who this guy is, the fact that youíre inventing a world and an atmosphere and a persona that, really, his past is a mystery. So everything that he looks at or perceives can be brand new, and he can get really, really excited and intrigued by something thatís just a commonality for everybody else, thatís humorous. Heís like a child; everythingís new. So you just bring that attitude to him, a childlike attitude of discovering things.
Yet youíve got this great writing, where everythingís mixed metaphor, and heís articulate, and he describes everything in a new way. Itís inspiring as an actor to be able to go to that place. Anything you do is not going to be wrong. All youíve got to do is just be inventive with this character and have fun. Thatís the definition of an ingenious character. To get to step into the shoes of the Tick, I just felt that was an honor. Once again, I will reiterate that Fox apparently didnít have a clue.
Warburton quotes
People really seem to have enjoyed The Tick. I think because itís odd and quirky and not mainstream, that people that are fans of The Tick love to talk about it, bring it up, and I certainly appreciate that. I felt like it was something special when we made it, and it was very disappointing when our network was not going to support it. I guess about eight years later, we proved the network wrong. Once again, the guys in suits made a big, big mistake, and theyíre all big jerks.

The Tick comes to mind. Ö that was just my favorite thing ever, and it was so smart and clever, and I loved it. I felt honored to get to step into the shoes of the Tick, and it just didnít get loveÖnot from the network, you know. The network killed it. Itís had a pretty fantastic after life on DVD, but it could have been a great series if they decided they wanted to spend any money at all back at the time. It became all about reality TV for them. They discovered they could spend very little money and get huge numbers.
