36 Fun Facts About Rick and Morty


Fun Facts About Rick and Morty


An extremely popular series Rick and Morty continuously push the boundaries of television animation with its outstanding stories and an unusually attractive morbid humor. Therefore, we have prepared for you a list of 36 fun facts related to it.



The inspiration for the series comes from The Real Adventures of Doc & Mharti, a series of shorts which was a parody version of the two protagonists from Back to the Future. Its creator, Justin Roiland, adapted the characters in order to create Rick and Morty.


In the episode “Close Rick-counters of the Rick Kind” we could notice that one of the Mortys looks a lot like Eric Stolz. Namely, it was Stolz who originally cast as Marty in Back to the Future, but Michael J. Fox took over this role during production.



It took six hours for the first draft of the pilot to be done by Dan Harmon in his unfurnished Community office. Harmon, who is allegedly known to be a procrastinator, was forced by Justin Roiland to stay inside until he finished the first draft. It was certainly worth it.


What was known as the first Instagram TV show premiere is the release of the episode “Rixty Minutes” via 109 15-second videos on Instagram. It was posted on this social network before it aired on Adult Swim.



The producers of this humorous series wanted to make Mr. Poopybutthole look like he was a part of the show from the beginning by inserting his character into the opening credits, even though he appeared in the episode “Total Rickall.”



The main characters of a show called Community – Shirley, Troy, Jeff, Abed, Annie, Britta and Pierce appeared in the third episode of the second season. Namely, this show was also created by Dan Harmon, and its alien version was used for this purpose.



As Justin Roiland can’t burp anytime he wants to, he has to drink water or beer during the recording session when he performs the voice of Rick. Since he had to burp in nearly every line in the pilot episode, he thought about going to the hospital upon recording it because of a stomachache.



Not only does the show have a huge army of fans who are glued to screens when the episode is on air, but it has fans who even started a petition last year to persuade Adult Swim to allow the production of a feature-length movie.



If you think that you know all the colors, can someone explain what a neon taupe is? This was supposed to be the color for Mr. Meeseeks, but since viewers didn’t receive it so well, it was changed to blue.



According to one of the creators of the show, Dan Harmon, British television series like The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and Doctor Who are to be blamed for his inspiration for the concept and humor of the series.


Upon being trolled by angry fans because of the fact that the wrong airing dates for the return of the third season had leaked, Dan Harmon hit back on Twitter by posting: “… you should really be telling me to get back to work when I’m NOT tweeting, since that’s when I’m probably just straight up dr*nking.”



If you ever wondered what the reason for Rick’s rocky relationship with the rest of the family might be, one of the possible causes could be his absence from his daughters’ life for about twenty years.



Creators of the show introduced Bird Person, who represents a parody version of Buck Rogers’ “The Hawk.”



We could see Dan Harmon at the 2015 Comic-Con in a costume of a Bird Person.



Both Rick and Morty are being voiced by one of the show’s creators, Justin Roiland.



It wasn’t decided right away that Roiland would do both voices. The reason for this was the undeveloped nature of Morty’s character. Four premises which made Morty have a more assertive role were written by Dan Harmon and sent to Adult Swim to convince them.



There are also some actors for whom this is not the first time to star together. Claudia Black and Virginia Hey, who performed the leading roles in the science fiction series Farscape, voice ruler Mar-Sha and the other Gazorpians in the episode “Raising Gazorpazorp.”



Some of you might have missed the fact that Rick never wears a seatbelt, whereas all the other characters do.



Rick and Morty travel through innumerable universes in the show, and the universe where the major part of the action happens on Earth (C-137) is just one of them.



Bardel Entertainment studio in Canada is in charge of production, and a great variety of different animation and visual effect software is used to create the show. Background art for the show is done in Adobe Photoshop, while its animation is done using Toon Boom Harmony. Adobe After Effects does the job when it comes to post-production of the show.



The shows Doctor Who and Tintin inspired the creators of Rick and Morty to make a parody of their main themes.



At the very beginning of the production of the show, star of Breaking Bad Brian Cranston auditioned for the role of Jerry.



In the episode “Lawnmower Dog” Showball the dog was voiced by Rob Paulsen. Since he already appeared in the series Pinky and the Brain playing the character with that name bent on world domination, this was the second time he did that. In Pinky and the Brain, he played a hamster which used to be The Brain’s best friend.



His co-star from the show, Maurice LaMarche, who voiced The Brain in Pinky and the Brain, gives voice to Snowball’s accountant in the very same episode.



One of the most famous court cases (the State of Georgia V. Denver Fenton Allen) in recent times was reenacted by the team behind this humorous show. Once Roiland and Harmon heard of this court case, they reenacted its transcript live at the 2016 Comic-Con panel in San Diego. The whole clip was animated in just two months’ time by a fan who took the audio.



How does a name “Crumply Crumplestein” sound to you? Better than King Jellybean? Namely, King Jellybean was at first developed for another show created by Justin Roiland, named Unbelievable Tales, where he went by this name.


Channel 101 is a non-profit film festival organized by Dan Harmon and Rob Schrab. Thanks to his numerous submissions to the festival, Justin Roiland attracted Dan Harmon’s attention. A series called House of Cosbys, which was about a fan living with a number of Bill Cosby clones was submitted by this guy. When the show was canceled, Roiland expressed his frustration by making a parody of Back to the Future, called “The Real Adventures of Doc and Mharti.” As you know, the rest is history.



It wasn’t so easy for Justin Roiland to land his production deal with Adult Swim. He originally sent three pilots of Rick and Morty to Fox.



Rick and Morty’s creators got the inspiration for the car driven by Jerry from the Wagon Queen Family Truckster from National Lampoon’s Vacation.



A pilot named DogWorld, which Roiland made for Carton Network influenced “Lawnmower Dog,” the second episode of the first season. We could also hear Rick and Morty allude to the show in a dialogue:

Morty: Wow! A whole world populated by intelligent dogs. I wonder what it’ll be like, Rick.

Rick: I think it will be great, Morty. You know it could be developed in-into a very satisfying project for people of all ages. I mean, I’d watch it, Morty, for at least 11 minutes a pop.



One says that only true actors have the ability to improvise. It seems that Roiland is of the same opinion since he improvises to a large extent while recording dialogue. This is done because he thinks that it makes the lines feel more natural.



The last episode of the 26th season features Rick and Morty in The Simpsons couch gag. If you’re interested in seeing this mini-story of the couch gag, you can look it up on the Youtube.


The episode “Big Trouble in Little Sanchez” has a guest appearance by the creator of the animation series Gravity Falls. He gave voice to a character called “Toby Matthews.”



A television commercial, in which Rick brings walking, sentient Carl’s Jr. burgers into Morty’s room while he is sleeping, was released by fast food chain Carl’s Jr. in 2015. In this amusing commercial the burgers run around crazily and steal things from Morty’s room.



One of the show’s creators, Roiland, originally wanted the show’s runtime to be eleven-minute segments, but Adult Swim chose to go for a half-hour program.



As all of you already know, Morty is Rick’s loyal companion, but one can’t but ask oneself why is Rick so obsessed with him? Why can’t he go without him on all of his adventures? This guy might be on a mission to make up for everything he did wrong in the past since there is a theory that Rick killed his original Morty and traveled to another dimension to find a new Morty who he would never let leave him. Furthermore, Rick is obviously having drinking problems, the sadness he feels because he accidentally killed his friend might be the cause of his addiction.

We are introduced to a character known as Evil Morty in the episode “Close Rick-counters of the Rick Kind.” He has a distinctive eyepatch. It is believed by many fans that this Evil Morty is the original Morty who is planning his revenge on Rick in secret.
