Why The Fox Hated The Tick


Why The Fox Hated The Tick

I had a chance to meet Patrick at a Disney charity event for the needy children of Marina Del Rey (I know, I didn't know they had needy children either.) Anyway, I have been a huge fan of pretty much everything Patrick has done, especially the TV show, THE TICK. The show was pure genius and I had to tell him about it. Then he said 'Thanks'. So, not being a dick to celebrities I enjoy, if they are busy, I leave them be at this point. As I turned away, Patrick proceeded to go into a rant about how much he loved The Tick and would have done anything for that role, including happily putting up with the silly (and torturous) suit. He loved the writing, the cast and pretty much everything else about it. Then Rupert Murdoch saw how much it cost them to make one episode of The Tick vs. how much an episode of Joe Millionaire (which in the end, we all paid for anyway). So then ol' Rupe' decided the best way to kill a Tick is to bury it, so he sat on it for a year, then put it across from Survivor and didn't run any ads for it. Ka-Blam! I'll bet Patrick ain't doing any Fox shows for a while. Bitter much? He should be. AS SHOULD YOU. It was one of the funniest things I have ever seen. Ever. All in all, Patrick's a really nice guy so say 'Hey' if you ever see him.

When I worked for THE PARADIGM AGENCY, right before they sacked my ass, I was put to pasture doing hat is known as floating. It's a simple job involving hours of internet surfing and answering phones.

Patrick Warburton is repped by a man named Joel Rudnick who we refer to as "Old Cougar" since he tends to growl and roar a-plenty. Cougar was out, and I was at the the desk:

Alf: Joel Rudnick's Office

Patrick: What?

Alf: Joel Rudnick's..Office?

Patrick: Oh. You're not the regular guy.

Alf: No, Kerim's out. Can I help you?

Patrick: Ok. Is Joel in?

Alf: I'm sorry he isn't, may I ask who's calling?

Patrick: This is Patrick Warurton. What's your name?

Alf: Alf.

Patrick: Alf? Like the..Thing?

Alf: Yeah, like the thing.

Patrick: Ok. Just tell him I called.
