Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon’s animated sci-fi show, Rick and Morty, is a phenomenally offbeat cartoon that has reached massive praise among fans and critics. Based on a parody of the 1980s Sci-fi Action/Adventure hit Back To The Future, the show follows Rick Sanchez (played by Justin Roiland), an alcoholic mad scientist and his grandson Mortimer “Morty” Smith, a teenager who's a bit of a nervous wreck. The two go on crazy time traveling adventures together in between dealing with their family life on earth.
While the style of the show looks clean and simple, the humor is often dark and twisted, often discussing real topics, as well as parodying pop culture from films to celebrities. With only two seasons under its belt, the Adult Swim cartoon continues to have a dedicated fanbase who eagerly await the third season, set to start later this year.
Surely those who have watched the show since the beginning have their favorite moments. In fact, this show is one of those few cartoons that make you realize it has more great moments than bad ones because it's built on the crazy. You never know what you are going to get. Sure, sometimes a joke may come off in a way that makes you think it's going to go wrong but then it goes in an entirely new direction. And I think that is just what makes Rick and Morty so awesome. It is full of surprises.
So as we await the arrival of the first episode of the third season, here's a list of the weirdest moments from Rick and Morty. Happy reading, earthlings!
15 Timeline Break
14 Rick and his Ex-Lover Unity
13 DMX Reference
12 Abradolf Lincler
11 Ice T As An Ice Cube
In “The Ballad of Ice T”, Rick and Morty are in a race to create an original song (which became the fan favorite hit song ”Get Schwifty”), for a Cromulon alien and are later thrown into a singing competition to save the world from destruction.
10 Rick Versus Zeep
9 Jerry’s Little Problem in Interdimensional Cable 2
"Interdimensional Cable" is one of Rick and Morty’s most popular episodes from season one so of course season two had to have a follow up. For those who don't know, this is when Rick finds unique ways to watch television from various dimensions.
8 Chair/Pizza/Phone People Ordering Pizza, Chairs and People
7 King Jellybean
This anthropomorphic character is quite controversial but was handled well on the show, walking a fine line between humorous and dark while tackling a serious matter. He ruled a fantasyland and his kingdom had no idea that this guy was a pedophile because the evidence was destroyed.
6 Screaming Sun
The season two finale, “The Wedding Squanchers” is a heavy one but nonetheless full of laughs. Rick is invited to a Bird Person wedding on a far away planet and the family tags along. The bride is actually a member of the Galactic Federation, which is after Rick.
5 Scary Terry
4 Naked Homeless Man Destroying The U.S.A
If you watched the episode “Anatomy Park," you probably shook your head as you were laughing at this scene because you could not believe this was happening. This is one of my favorite moments on the show simply because of how stupid and immature this was.
3 Evil Morty
2 The Opening
1 100 - Rick and Morty Forever
The ending scene in the pilot episode is pure gold. The episode is winding down. Next thing you know: an idealistic, crazy-eyed Rick is going into a motivational monologue as poor Morty is suffering from horrible (and painful) side effects of the mega seeds. The speech is simply an endless rant but sounds like a 30 to 60 second improvisation skit, promoting the show. Regardless, this funny scene gets fans powered up, begging for more Rick and Morty adventures - up to 100 years if we are lucky. Though the rest of the pilot isn't great, this moment makes up for it. You agree with what Rick is saying because you want more of the show. Simultaneously, you wonder if Morty is going to be ok. It makes you scratch your head and laugh aloud, just as any strange Rick and Morty moment would!
