The Lady Says No (1952) is a hoot. It’s a romantic comedy starring David Niven and Joan Caulfied. She’s a writer that writes a man hating book, he’s a photographer that wants to prove her all wrong. I thought it was pretty funny.
The Tick is a fictional character created by cartoonist Ben Edlund in 1986 as a newsletter mascot. He is an absurdist spoof of comic book superheroes. After its creation, the character spun off into an independent comic book series in 1988, and gained mainstream popularity through an animated TV series on Fox Broadcasting in 1994. A short-lived live-action TV series, video game and various merchandise have also been based on the character.
