- Yup, *sigh*, I've been a sidekick for, oh, goin' on 46 years. Been all across this crazy, mixed-up country kickin' for a hero with a brain th' size of a walnut. And what have I got t' show for it? High blood-pressure, an artificial hip, and a case of the worms. But, man, I love it.
The Dog sidekick is a character on the animated television series The Tick.
He, unlike the orangutan sidekick, enjoys the life of a sidekick, despite the many health issues it has brought him. He is friendly and benevolent, and generally passive.
