Bloomsday
Episode Nineteen, Season Two

Original air date: 10/21/1995
Bloomsday

Bloomsday is the second episode featuring El Seed. The episode opens up in the flower show where Professor Ichibana tells The Tick and Arthur about the 400 Year Bloom, a plant that will bloom "the bad way" if it isn't constantly exposed to music. Of course, El Seed promptly steals the bloom and sets it off...

Probably the two funniest things about this episode are (1) seeing American Maid and The Tick singing to the bloom...American Maid sings patriotic anthems like America the Beautiful and The Star Spangled Banner to the bloom while Tick starts singing an Italian opera and (2) Human Bullet trying to get someone to fire him out of his cannon (Fire Me Boy was playing with his friends "like a normal kid" and his wife wouldn't do it; eventually Chet the neighbor came to the rescue)

The 400 Year Bloom (blooming in the Bad way)

Business Card

The question has been answered! The Tick sings an opera piece to the bloom; and thanks to Edward Pizzini we now know that it was "La Donna e' Mobile" from the opera Rigoletto by Giuseppe Verdi. Thanks, Edward!
