Tonight brings the highly anticipated continuance of the third season of Rick and Morty after the season premiere caught everyone off guard on April Fools’ Day earlier this year. And just in time for the return of the Adult Swim animated series, co-creator Justin Roiland, who also voices both of the title characters, got a special package from McDonald’s.
If you watched the first episode of the third season, then you know that Rick revealed to Morty that his life’s goal is to get back the limited edition Szechuan sauce that McDonald’s released as a cross-promotion for the release of Disney’s animated movie Mulan. Since then, there have been rumblings that McDonald’s might actually bring it back, and Roiland himself said the fast food chain promised to send him a batch of it in the near future, after he himself made some desperate attempts to track it down himself. Well, the future is now. Justin Roiland has received McDonald’s Szechuan sauce. See it in all its glory below. Read More »

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.

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.
