Arthur Teaches the Tick about Hannukah
The Tick tries to impress Arthur with how much he remembers of the Hanukkah story. However, the Tick adds elements of his own that make it seem more exciting (e.g. renaming Judah Maccabee "Judah Skywalker"). The retelling is similar to the one done in an issue of Marvel Holiday Special 1993.
