10 best?

There were only 36 episodes, and they're all great!

/Fark you, Disney, for cutting episodes from the box sets, releasing edited versions of the episodes, and never releasing the final season.
//Buy the region 2 releases. All three seasons are available, with the episodes Disney wouldn't release.

The list fails without Alone Together.

"That's where I keep all my stuff!"

But I'll give them a pass on that one since it can't be found on the official releases. Thanks for being so lawsuit happy Marvel.

/however, at this point, Disney should release the whole series. Marvel can't biatch anymore, because they're Disney's biatch.

Sorry. But without "Tick vs. The Common Cold" anywhere on the list, let alone not being at #1 this list is wrongity wrong wrong.

Top three:

The Tick vs. The Big Nothing

The Tick vs. The Uncommon Cold

Alone Together (Omnipotus episode)

Before the series began, a local news affiliate did one of those "are Saturday morning cartoons too violent" reports. They showed brief clips of The Tick, X-men, and others. The report became a little derailed when...

"Think of the children. We should all think of the chil...did that man have a chair for a head? What show was that?"
"i think patents should be responsible and watch the shows their kids watch too see if they may be inappropriate"
"I want to watch that show to see why that man had a chair for a head".

The Tick: "Uh... I don't know!"
What Interpreter: "IT'S JUST THAT FAST!"

i bought the entire series on dvd from some random dude on the internet like a decade ago. they are all crappy vhs transfers but its the whole series and i love it. and just to make sure i can watch the show whenever i want, i also have the entire series on my computer, downloaded an episode at a time from limewire. i've seen every episode a million times. and the episode with thrakozog is by far my favorite. a close second is tick vs the big nothing.

Saban owning the rights to Die Fledermaus and American Maid. IIRC, the only characters that crossed over were the ones that Edlund created for the comics. But cartoon creations stayed with the cartoon.

I'm sure Sony would have loved to use the already established names, but rights are a biatch.
