Ants in the Pants!
Episode Twenty-two, Season Two

Original air date: 11/18/1995
Ants in the Pants!

This episode comes closer than any other to the sanity problems that The Tick experienced in the comic book series. No, it's not Evanston Asylum, but after battling Ants in the shape of a human, The Tick checks himself into Captain Sanity's Superhero Sanitarium.

Captain Sanity and his assistant, Taft, delve deep into the Tick's psyche while the ants steal all of the glass in the city. Eventually, the ants use the glass to build a people farm and a giant magnifying glass. Of course, the magnifying glass is to fry the people to get revenge!

Taft

I'm your mother, man!

It looks bleak after the other heroes are captured and put into the people farm and the national guard is about to blow up the city, but when Mayor Blank calls The Tick races to the rescue and defeats the ants.

This episode would have been about 2 1/2 stars if it wasn't for my favorite Tickism of all;

Isn't sanity really just a one trick pony, anyway? I mean, all you get is one trick, rational thinking! But when you're good and crazy…ooh hoo hoo hoo…the sky's the limit!
