Justin Roiland wrote a custom Rick And Morty song for Kanye West's birthday

It makes a certain inevitable sense that Kanye West would be a Rick & Morty fan. First—and, we’ll admit, it gets harder to remember this part with every passing day, as the platonic image of the show’s “Pickle Rick!”-screaming fanbase continually threatens to overshadow its actual merits—the Adult Swim series remains…

Justin Roiland says Dan Harmon and Rick are starting to merge in his mind

Anyone who has an above-average familiarity with both Rick And Morty and series co-creator Dan Harmon should be able to recognize that there’s a lot of Harmon in Rick, the show’s mad-ish scientist who prefers to live the most interesting life he can rather than slowing things down to the pace of “normal” people. For…

Dan Harmon pities McDonald’s for having to deal with Rick And Morty fans

Even though the overblown “controversy” is so 2017, Rick And Morty co-creator Dan Harmon is still being forced to talk about his show’s complicated relationship with McDonald’s Szechuan sauce. What started out as a running joke in the show’s season three premiere turned into a blood feud after the fast food franchise…

Game Of Thrones showrunners recorded the audio commentary for Rick And Morty's "Pickle Rick" episode

Though your personal preference may vary, Szechuan sauce and “I’M PICKLE RICK” are easily in the top five most-circulated bits and quotes from Rick And Morty season three. The former took on risible life outside of the show, while the latter has had its Breaking Bad parallels broken down by co-creator Dan Harmon. The…

Rick And Morty would like you to know about Logic's new mixtape

It’s no surprise that Rick And Morty’s Rick Sanchez is up on his modern music—this is the guy who wrote “Get Schwifty,” after all. Hence, presumably, a new video posted by rapper Logic today, in which Rick (Justin Roiland, yelling at himself as usual) schools his grandson Morty on the differences between “album Logic”…

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.

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.

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…
