Rick and Morty Bushworld Adventures

Last year on April Fool’s Day, the ultimate Adult Swim joke came in the form of a surprise season premiere of the third season of Rick and Morty. This year, it seemed unlikely that a surprise fourth season premiere would happen, especially with the trouble behind the scenes in getting an official order for the show to continue. But fans were still treated to a Rick and Morty prank anyway.

Rather than deliver a new episode of Rick and Morty, an animated short called the Bushworld Adventures debuted that takes the Rick and Morty formula and sets it in Australia. However, instead of going on any cosmic adventures, the duo just go on a wild road trip across the bush of Australia. The result is a short that is somehow more twisted and intense (not to mention Australian) than the real Rick and Morty, and that’s saying something. Read More »

Dan Harmon has spilled the sauce: Rick and Morty could be in trouble.

The cult animated TV series has seen delay after delay for its fourth season and according to co-creator and writer Harmon, Rick and Morty still has not been picked up by Adult Swim.

McDonald's Szechuan Sauce Returning

McDonald’s really pissed off Rick and Morty fans last fall. The fast food chain released limited quantities of their beloved and desired Szechuan dipping sauce that debuted as part of a cross-promotion with Mulan in 1998 after the third season of Rick and Morty made such a big deal out of it. But the quantities were so limited that what was supposed to be a fun promotion turned into a pop culture riot.

After the Szechuan wars resulted in plenty of complaints being thrown at McDonald’s, the fast food chain vowed to make it right by making infinitely more Szechuan sauce available so that everyone could get their hands on it. They vowed to bring back the sauce sometime this winter, and now we know exactly when we can get it. Read More »
