Proctor's off-spring Charles, The Brainchild, takes advantage of his parent's night on the town to lure the Tick into combat and in line of fire of a morpho ray gun that changes him into a tiny two-headed bluebird that can only speak high school French, to be auctioned off to the highest bidder among the various super villain adversaries. Arthur restores The Tick in the nick of time, changes back Coach Fussell and the volleyball team from earwigs, just as the parents come home.
Proctor plays a volunteer in a secret governmental experiment that develops the most comfortable chair in the world. Many years later while lecturing a tour group, he becomes trapped again during a ruckus caused by The Ottoman, a beautiful villainess with the power to animate and control furniture.
The entire Firesign get into the act in this episode by becoming the henchmen who free Mr. Smarty Pants, an super intelligent, Kirk Douglas-voiced dolphin forced to do tricks by his incessant craving for fish by the animal entertrainers Soren & Fred. Austin also gives a bravura performance as a conspiracy minded, over caffeinated fish monger and Ossman doubles as a luring slot machine.
Bergman gives an extended performance as Terry, son of the Terror, sent on a spy mission to the Super Hero Retirement Home by his evil father to trick the aged Captain Decency and The Decency Squad to tell stories to The Tick and Arthur about past heroic deeds and get information regarding the location of the DESIRO-VAC, a machine that creates anything you want to. Ossman appears briefly as a TV announcer.
The Firesign play a group of modern day Aztec warriors, led by Austin, who accidentally capture Arthur and take him down to Mexico. It turns out the gang is really the "Deertown Aztecs", a former Little League baseball team who's plane crashed years ago in the jungles. They say "Itlan" a lot and the Tick comes to the rescue freeing Arthur and coach Ossman. Also, Proctor plays Corduroy Cordoba, Bergman announcer.
Proctor voices the King of Belgium while the Tick and Arthur, as part of an international superhero exchange with Antwerp, defend against an invasion of gingerbread men, fight Octopaganini, a eight-limbed criminal violinist virtuoso and the Eastern Bloc Robot Cowboy, a lethally-enhanced vending machine.
Originally scheduled to include all four Firesigns, and then Austin as an oriental villain and Ossman as a giant tongue that morphs into animals, but budget restraints morphed the episode into just featuring Ossman as Professor Emmett Peelie who's mind tranferring experiments wind him up in the body of a zebra.
