The The Tick vs. The Breadmaster wiki last edited by Renchamp on 09/25/13 01:14PM View full history

It is shopping day and the Tick and Arthur visit Stuart's Food Castle. While they are there, however, a bread bomb explodes. Other such incidents occur around town and the Tick heads out to investigate.

The Tick interviews the dean of the local baking school, who just happens to get a call about a bread bomb threat. The Tick finds the bread and, to stop it from destroying the school, eats it. He is successful in quelling any expansion by using a rolling pin over his body. The Breadmaster, the man behind these crimes, is not pleased.

The Breadmaster accelerates his plans by demanding mass cooking supplies while threatening to bread bomb more places in the City. The mayor gives in to these demands. The Tick determines to ambush the Breadmaster at the sugar plant. He does, but it does not end well. Fortunately, the Breadmaster drops a clue that leads the duo to the municipal swimming pool, where the Breadmaster is preparing a soufflé to consume the City.

The Breadmaster is easily caught, but his self-rising souffle has already begun to expand. The Tick talks the Human Bullet into using his cannon to create a sonic boom. The noise is loud enough to erupt the souffle and the City is safe under a freshly fallen snack.

This is what you look forward to in a comedic superhero cartoon. Right here. Look nowhere else because you will not find it.The Tick is tasked with stopping a baker that makes destructive, expanding bread. This premise is too silly. But is it? The man has means and motive. He also has an assistant called Buttery Pat.The Tick ate some expanding bread to save a buildingThe episode tackles this asinine character flawlessly. No one finds the antics silly and this sober attention by the heroes is wha...
