Tick vs. Prehistory

Have you ever read The Restaurant at the End of the Universe by Douglas Adams? That story involves a restaurant that is chronologically located at the end of the universe and the patrons travel there via time machines to eat and witness the end of everything.

This episode borrows a bit from that idea, featuring a restaurant located about 3.5 million years ago. The Tick and Arthur wind up stuck in the distant past, but they're 'saved' when The Hotel Manager kidnaps their tribe of human-ape ancestors and takes them to the hotel to replace his waitstaff. Tick manages to overthrow the hotel staff and return his tribe to freedom and restore himself and Arthur to the 20th century.

Megatherium stepped on the time machine.

Well, it WAS a time machine...

Magetherium, the Giant Sloth

Arthur! He means to peal you like a grape!

The funniest things about this episode are seeing how Tick and Arthur adapt to their life in the ancient past. Tick adapts quickly and continues his daily patrols (Sabertooth Tiger…you face the Tick! The world's first superhero!) and he quickly manages to learn the ape-men's language. Arthur, on the other hand, does not adapt well at all, and spends most of his time screaming in frustration. Either way, it's hilarious to watch.
