The Tick vs. Downward Mobility

The Tick vs. Downward Mobility was slated to be the first episode of the 4th season of the animated series. I recently found out what the general gist of this script was; though I've never been able to get a copy. One of the trends for season four is to change the lifestyle of Tick and Arthur; eventually they would have ended up in a transient hotel called St. Ganesh.

The Tick vs. Downward Mobility starts with a fight between Barry and The Tick that essentially destroys Arthur's apartment. Tick and Arthur become homeless and wander around for awhile looking for a new place and eventually get jobs at the zoo dressing up as a polar bear and emperor penguin in an exhibit titled "Nature's Impossible Harmony." Carmalita takes pity on them and invites them to live at the Vahtoss mansion, but when they move in we learn that Barry is actually Vahtoss's son. Barry was the person that Arthur's flying suit was designed for before he had a falling out with Dr. Vahtoss.

When Barry sees the Tick and Arthur at the Vahtoss mansion (which has the Tick cave below) he flips out (again) and beats up Arthur and becomes The Moth. This is all I know about the ep; but it was the first part of a 2 parter and was continued in The Tick vs. Youth.
