Justin Roiland dings McDonald’s for Rick And Morty Szechuan sauce promo

The dust is settling over the great Szechuan sauce debacle of 2017, McDonald’s spectacular failure of a promotional event. Last Saturday, the fast-food giant tried to capitalize on Rick And Morty fans’ obsession with Rick’s dipping-sauce obsession, but either didn’t anticipate the overwhelming response—presumably…

Here’s an encyclopedia of every pop culture reference in this season of Rick And Morty

Rick And Morty is a show that revels in its pop culture references. Despite taking place in a multiverse where any insane sci-fi adventure can happen, it’s a show that refuses to pretend other TV shows and movies don’t exist or that the audience isn’t hyper-aware of them at all times. In what’s become a staple of Dan…

Rick And Morty's "Pickle Rick" episode was inspired by Breaking Bad

We think we can all agree that the third season of Rick And Morty has been well worth the protracted wait (which, in the grand scheme of fantasy novel publication, wasn’t long at all). From “The Rickshank Redemption” to last Sunday’s “The Ricklantis Mixup,” Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland’s show has grown more…

Witness the staff of Rick And Morty finally tasting that sweet Szechuan sauce

Fast food fans rejoiced when, a few weeks ago, Rick And Morty creator Justin Roiland finally got his hands on a 64oz bottle of the previously-discontinued Mulan Szechuan dipping sauce from McDonald’s. The Asian-inspired sauce was only officially on the market for a brief period in the late ’90s to promote the Disney…

Series arc achieved: Rick And Morty’s Justin Roiland finally got his McDonald’s Szechuan sauce

The marketing folks for fast food companies pretty much live for the chance to attach their products to hot pop culture brands, so when a hit show—like, say, Adult Swim’s Rick And Morty—lobs a slow, easy pitch at them—by declaring that one of their discontinued products is its “series arc,” for instance—it’s not super…

Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland on the wait for new Rick And Morty and “the pursuit of perfection”

At the end of Rick And Morty’s second season, top-hat-wearing, “ooo-wee”-ing Smith family friend Mr. Poopybutthole assures fans that their favorite sci-fi comedy will be back “in, like, a year and a half—or longer.” Self-deprecating joke became self-fulfilling prophecy: Nearly 18 months passed between the end of Rick…

Adult Swim’s hosting a Rick And Morty livestream on Thursday

Dan Harmon may have recently solved the mystery of why the hell Rick And Morty season three is taking so long—it’s less about fighting, more about thinking—but there’s still no update on just when we can expect the return of the animated series or that coveted Szechuan sauce. To be fair to Harmon, Justin Roiland, and…

Watch Rick And Morty’s Justin Roiland knock back shots to method act “Drunk Rick”

Rick And Morty’s Rick Sanchez is always kind of drunk; his belching, stumbling alcoholism is one of the character’s many endearing(?) personal foibles. Apparently, though, the show’s third season will find Rick getting even more sloshed than usual, a situation that forced co-creator and voice actor Justin Roiland to…

Find out how much obscure Rick And Morty trivia you already know with this video

The A.V. Club loves Rick And Morty, so much so that we will report on a lack of information about when the show’s third season will come. And, while the public’s desire for more Rick And Morty is leading to interesting stopgap measures—including these surreal video game animations and a satirical new website—this…

There’s a new website that might help you forget that Rick And Morty still isn’t back

Just as Mr. Poopybutthole foretold, it’s been a year and a half or longer since we’ve seen a new episode of Rick And Morty. Last summer, optimistic reports emerged that Adult Swim’s flagship animated series would be back before the end of the year, but that projected return date came and went, like a Meeseeks…

These short videos are the closest thing we have to Rick And Morty’s third season

Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland continue to be cagey about Rick And Morty’s third season. Harmon took the stage last week at the Sundance Film Festival to take the blame personally, saying that the episodes keep taking longer and longer to write, while Roiland helpfully joined the fray clamoring for more shows on…

Rick And Morty’s Justin Roiland is starting his own VR studio

Last month, we brought you a trailer for a new virtual reality experience—designed by Owlchemy Labs, of Job Simulator fame—set in the horrifying, fascinating world of Justin Roiland’s Rick And Morty. And while that brief glimpse got our plumbuses all aquiver, apparently it wasn’t enough for Roiland. The creator—who…

This improvised Rick And Morty mini-episode takes a scatological turn

The two most important words in any improvisational comedian’s vocabulary should be “yes” and “and.” In the world of improv, it’s well known that performers are obliged to accept what their scene partners are saying and then build on that by adding new information to the narrative. (“Yes, and…”) Things worked a little…
