Rick and Morty Featurette

In the simplest terms, Rick and Morty is an animated comedy series about a drunk, genius scientist grandfather who takes his grandson on insane adventures across the universe and usually creates problem for his family back on Earth. But Rick and Morty is so much more than a series of sci-fi mishaps, vulgarities and drunken burps.

Series co-creator Dan Harmon sat down for a Rick and Morty featurette where he talks briefly about the bleak outlook that Rick Sanchez has by thinking that nothing he does really matters. Is Rick really any happier because he’s smart enough to realize that all of the things that worry the rest of his family are inconsequential? Dan Harmon certainly doesn’t think so, and he explains why in the fairly deep thinking Rick and Morty featurette you can watch after the jump. Read More »

Rick and Morty Alien Crossover

Alien: Covenant is coming to theaters this week, bringing xenomorphs and new creatures to the big screen who will feast on unsuspecting space explorers. The early buzz on the movie was fairly mixed with critics having varying opinions on how the movie balances the horror and suspense of Alien with the intellectual, expository side of Prometheus. You’ll just have to see it yourself to form your own opinion.

In the meantime, fans can enjoy what will probably be the best piece of promotion for the movie yet: a crossover with Rick and Morty. In this clip, the title characters from the Adult Swim animated series get a distress call from a ship that should look quite familiar to fans who have kept up with the Alien franchise.

Rick and Morty Tour

While we’re waiting for the third season of Rick and Morty to continue this summer, fans will be able to show their love for the Adult Swim animated series by checking out the Rickmobile touring the United States this summer.

That’s right, the vehicle you see above is real, and it will be driving around the country this summer as part of the “Don’t Even Trip Road Trip.” There’s a whole list of cities that will get paid a visit by the Rickmobile, and it’s not just a goofy car that you can get your picture with, but also a mobile shop full of exclusive, custom-designed merch from Rick and Morty.

Rick and Morty Voice Recording

Fans are anxiously awaiting the return of Rick and Morty after the surprise third season premiere debuted on April Fools Day earlier this year. We still don’t have a confirmed release date for the rest of the season of the Adult Swim series, but the late night Cartoon Network programming block has provided another tease of what’s to come with a special look behind the scenes.

Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland is responsible for voicing both of the title characters in the animated series. And since the former character is an alcoholic, sometimes co-creator Dan Harmon suggests Roiland get a little bit liquored up before he does some of the voice recording. In the case of the upcoming fourth episode of the third season, apparently it’s integral to whatever is happening, and Adult Swim has shown off what it’s like to work with a drunk Justin Roiland.

Rick and Morty Origin

Rick and Morty is one of the best television shows on air right now. While the animated antics on the Adult Swim series are undoubtedly crass and vulgar, the writing on the show is sharp, witty and has some of the best sci-fi satire that TV has ever seen.

Many fans of Rick and Morty know that the series originally started as a more direct parody of Back to the Future, following characters named Doc Smith and Mharti McDonalds. But the original idea was actually meant to more directly infringe upon the copyrights of Universal Pictures in an effort to get the studio to send creator Justin Roiland a cease and desist order.

Rick and Morty VR

Even though the surprise third season premiere of Rick and Morty was a nice treat for fans who have been waiting for the animated series return, now we’re still stuck waiting for new episodes to come back this summer. Thankfully, there’s something that might hold us over for the time being.

Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality is a new VR game available on the HTC Vive and Oculus + Touch that allows you to enter the wild world of Adult Swim’s animated series. Check out the Rick and Morty VR trailer below to see what kind of adventures you can have. Read More »

Rick and Morty Grand Theft Auto 5 mod

The video game Grand Theft Auto V has been out for about three and a half years now, but fans keep coming up with new ways to make the game more exciting, at least for those who play it on their computers. There have been mods adding The Incredible Hulk and Iron Man to the video game, and there was even an official update that introduced vehicles that were essentially TRON lightcycles into the mix. But a recent mod is one of the weirdest and coolest we’ve seen yet.

A modder known as Jedidiah515 took it upon himself to create a mod that allows the title characters from Adult Swim’s animated series Rick and Morty to enter the world of Grand Theft Auto V. In fact, the mod allows players to add tons of Ricks and Mortys into the game, as if all of the different versions from parallel dimensions were converging on this one world. However that mod also makes for some truly disturbing images, especially when strippers are replaced with Rick Sanchez.

Rick and Morty Season 3 Promos

In case you didn’t hear, last weekend Adult Swim surprised viewers by delivering the surprise debut of the third season premiere of Rick and Morty on April Fools’ Day. It replayed over and over for a few hours, and then it replayed again the next day after an all day marathon on Adult Swim’s streaming site. Since then, it aired again on Adult Swim so that everyone’s series recordings could pick it up for everyone who couldn’t catch it before.

Those who were lucky enough to catch Rick and Morty were treated to a series of promos to highlight the fact that the show will officially return for its full third season this summer. Using various styles of animation, the promos were wild and wacky, featuring various characters from the animated series in some peculiar situations.

Rick and Morty Season 3 Premiere

This past weekend, Adult Swim surprised everyone on April Fools’ Day by debuting the long-awaited third season premiere to Rick and Morty, both online and on Cartoon Network. It was a welcome return for the brilliant animated comedy series, though it has caused some debate among fans as to whether what is actually going on in the episode (you can find out more about that here). But beyond having fans coming up with theories about the direction of the show, there was one other way Rick and Morty worked fans into a frenzy.

In the episode, we learn that Rick has a potentially unhealthy affinity for a special Szechuan sauce that was given out with McDonald’s chicken nuggets for a limited time as part of a cross-promotion with the release of Mulan back in 1998. Despite demands by fans in various petitions online over the years, the sauce has remained hidden away. However, it sounds like there’s a chance its appearance in Rick and Morty may have convinced the fast food chain to bring it back. Read More »
