episode features The Mustache, a secret weapon designed by the
government to make up for the facial hair gap (the Russians had
already been working on The Russian Beard, who also appears in
this episode). The Mustache is trying to meet up with the Russian
Beard and it chooses to inhabit the Tick's
lip for protection.
Mustache is being pursued by Jim
Rage and the ladies of Project: Shave, Kitty Sangata (Ninjitsu,
Demolitions, Electrolysis), Holly go Lovely (Kung Fu, Demolitions,
she devil with a comb) and Crystal (Liberal Arts, Demolitions,
red hot with a hair dryer). OF course, their funding had been
cut in 1986 and Shave didn't really even exist anymore, so Jim
Rage is basically a big loser.
