The Schwiftiest Rick And Morty Secrets And Theories COMPILATIONMay 30, 2021
The creators of Rick and Morty love to hide sneaky little Easter eggs in their episodes. They hint at possible plot threads. They inspire fan
theoriesand simply show affection for the shows that inspired them, regardless of the reasons for the references. It still prompts fans to check out the episodes. and we'll break down each frame today we're going to look at the
secretsthey've been hiding in plain sight and talk about what they could mean for the rest of the show wait now before we start subscribe to us you'll join the notification squad and get frequent updates on new content someone probably tracked him down last week on the bottom of his shoe or an alien fruit get out of the way summer we all have pinkeye why don't you stop texting in the bathroom Rick accidentally brought parasites with him fan favorite episode Total Recall plays with the protagonist's perception of reality and the reliability of his own memories the episode revolves around alien parasites who disguise themselves and influence the memories of those around them everyone just relax for a second there is no such thing as Uncle Steve which is an alien parasite this way the aliens can make their v Victims think they are loved by someone who has always been close to them, the downside is that they can only make positive memories, not negative ones.
The episode revolves around Rick trying to figure out which of his family and friends are real and which are imposter aliens. in an earlier episode Rick is getting his hands on some glowing green rocks, although it doesn't look like much at first, at the start of Total Recall we can see him trying to get rid of some of those rocks in the bin and what are we living in those green rocks, little purple alien lifeforms, so it seems like Rick accidentally brought the alien threat home with them and the little aliens got out of control, although we have to say that Rick is trying to get rid of them. putting them in the trash doesn't exactly seem like a safe way to get rid of them oh sorry i was waiting for
rick's partner lesson a newbie expect the unexpected now get into
mortycould be the characters we know and love. but their history is pretty much unknown when Rick and Morty begin, they already know each other and have been on adventures together for a while.
There have also been plenty of hints on the show that Rick and Morty might not be the first of the rest, the Morty we know and love, it's been slightly hinted at being Rick's second or maybe even third morty when we get to see Rick. through rick's memories we see a four year old morty and then a memory of rick with a baby morty rick shouldn't have any memories of a baby morty if it's true that he disappeared from the smith family for 20 years so if not it's rick's original morty so who's alright he might be dead after all rick has a very strange relationship with morty he can't decide if he loves him or not however rick's first morty might just be the evil morty.
The show's intro shows Rick leaving Morty stranded in a dimension of giant frogs. Some fans believe that this was Rick's original Morty and the one that would ultimately make it. become evil morty chill enough i admire you rick rick's crime is destroying worlds it's no secret rick is a highly wanted man in fact he is the most wanted man in the entire multiverse but it has never been clearly explained what he could have done Rick to do so many people want him in jail destroying multiple worlds is probably a good example of a crime yes Rick already ruined a version of Earth we know of Rick accidentally Cronenberg DUP the world and brought Morty to an identical version of that safer world the mutant nightmare apocalypse Okay, sometimes science is more art than science.
Morty, a lot of people don't understand that in this world, he and Morty died. Rick buried his own body and it seemed like a comment. Bly nonchalant about it, so this could be something he does often in the first episode. Rick attempts to destroy the world and start over as Rick passes out. That bomb never goes off. He just comes up with a test to make you more assertive. He was sure why not. I don't know if the series really started with Rick destroying the planet Earth when you consider that Rick disappeared for twenty years it seems likely that Rick simply replaced a dead version of himself even though he died long before he arrived.
Rick is also quite reluctant. say what dimension any of his family is from it could be that he just doesn't know if he's been through so many dimensions he doesn't even know where he currently is you're always wrong in the episode raising gazorpazorp morty finds himself in an awkward situation through his own teenage shenanigans, he managed to become the father of an alien when Rick and Summer go to the aliens' home planet and find a world divided, everyone in it is either one of the two stereotypes while all the men on the planet they are big hulking caveman like people with little thought outside of the fight over food and women, the women themselves are very different, the women are too dressed to talk fancy, they constantly gossip and play to opposing stereotypes of the los Men also greet each other with I'm here if you need to talk, although it's interesting that both aliens are versions hyper exaggerated of the human sexes also gave us a funny hidden joke on the queen's throne there is written in Latin it reads sis simper calumnia' m which translates roughly for you you are always wrong or you may always be wrong the translation is accurate but it's the closest it's another nifty little secret the creator put in although it's probably overlooked by most for those who can figure it out and those who read about it makes a lot of laughs and these babies just save this silly party blow up a dub dub play something that someone touches something alien Rick dance the episode Rick sees that the business revolves around a giant party instead of the kids throwing it, it's grandpa and we have tons of aliens visiting them, unfortunately for Morty the party accidentally teleports to another part of the galaxy, a dangerous part of the galaxy in that one with giant killer aliens Morty obviously not e he's happy with that fact and wants to go home instead of taking them back a super choreographed but also party appropriate dance joined by several people at the party morty on the other hand just wants to be back on his own planet and not is especially happy with Rick's dancing and the snorting of crystals, he throws the crystals outside but before Rick can grab them, a large alien tentacle picks them up and carries them away while the two argue.
A few shots later, in the background, we can see a very happy giant. lien dancing with his tentacles in the air he is spinning exactly like rick did so one thing is for sure those crystals can make anyone dance mr. meeseeks in the episode meeseeks and destroy 'Rick gives the Smith family a box of meeseeks that exist to help him with his homework and then disappear. Jerry asks the meeseeks to help him take two strokes off his golf game, unfortunately for mr. meeseeks Jerry is hopeless at golf, the task becomes more and more difficult until finally mr. meeseeks decides to use meeseeks box himself to get his own helper.
Is not sufficient. Jerry finally ends up with an army of mr. meeseeks all trying to help him with his golf game eventually the meeseeks go berserk and attack if he gets killed then they took two shots off his golf game once Beth finally helps Jerry improve his golf game they all disappear the meeseeks don't They are seen again until the episode Morty Knight run where an alien can be seen playing a pinball machine with a mr. meeseeks next to him, a few seconds later, he disappears having completed his task, existence is paying for a meeseeks so we're glad the new ones get easier jobs, hey tell me Rick what do you want?
I do my own thing, so what are you? like the devil beating Randall something Rick AddThis comes mostly parodies of the Stephen King story necessary things where the devil opens a store and gives evil items to unsuspecting customers this leads Rick to open his own business where he uses science to De Ville the gifts of the villains this puts Rick at odds with the devil their businesses start to compete in the devil it seems she can't keep up the summer who has been working on necessary things tries to help the devil unfortunately for her the devil is a trickster and stabs her in the back and breaks her heart here's zuckerberg if i was bugging people before the dumb bugs dropped the balls summer is understandably pretty sad and rick takes it upon himself to cheer her up rick uses science to roid him and summer to Arnold Schwarzenegger proportions and beat the devil to a pulp which isn't enough, albeit mid ida they continue to beat up more people one of the guys they beat is a guy on the playground and the fans on the disney channel can find it a little familiar because the guy looks uncannily like Randall from playground Randall who always he's been a snitch and often the antagonist of the kids at recess gets pummeled by two muscled giants and to be honest it's hard to feel sorry for him. just went offline tuned in for rick and morty season 3 in about a year and a half the reason the fourth wall is broken rick and morty isn't a show that breaks the fourth wall very often, though he does occasionally joke about the structure of movies and stories in general there are only two characters who frequently break the fourth wall the first and most famous is Rick Rick breaks the fourth wall by addressing the audience directly and saying things like we'll be back he also came up with his own catchphrase and talks about how the show will continue for multiple seasons, why is it okay?
There have been little
secretsto back up this theory scattered throughout the show, but it's further supported by the final episode of season two in which the character mr. Poopy Butthole is revealed to have been watching the latest episode on TV, that's a really crazy ending huh? Since he clearly has had many flings on TV, some fans believe that he informed Rick that he's on the TV show and that's why Rick is depressed all the time. there have been quick little lines the writers put in to back up the theory, like when Rick says he refuses to answer a literal call to adventure he refuses to answer a literal call to adventure Morty lets it go to grunkle voicemail Stan's Stuff Rick and Morty creator Justin Roiland is a longtime friend of Alex Hirsch, the creator of Gravity Falls.
Both worked together at Disney before Royal and went their own way. Not surprisingly, the shows have some references to each other. Gravity Falls suggests that four travel between universes all the time. and we already know Rick Sanchez is all about interdimensional travel, so as the episode closed, Rick counters the Rick guy, Rick opens multiple portals to other dimensions to try and cover his tracks, one of them throws a cup with a question mark, a notepad and a pen. This is a direct reference to an episode Gravity Falls when grunkle Stan loses those exact items through a portal in the episode The Blind Eye Society It's a fun reference and hints at a connection between the two, it's not the only reference from Gravity Falls, since an image of Bill Cipher also appears on the show as we deal, we'll ever see a proper collaboration, as the shows are owned by rival networks Cartoon Network and Disney Channel, respectively.
It's still fun to speculate on how the two shows might be connected. When Dan Harmon did a crude parody of the Rob Zemeckis classic for the Harmons film festival, this parody was eventually adapted and expanded as the Rick and Morty show, despite being inspired by The Advent. ures from dr. Emmett L Brown and Marty McFly no time travel has occurred on the show so far, there are hints that it could happen as Rick owns a box full of time travel stuff, though the box, just like the idea has been literally shelved. The reason is that presenting the time travel would be a big headache for them to explain and write a consistent story around that, saying that the time travel box is a little easter egg for the fans, the The show deals with time being frozen before and made for a pretty funny episode where Rick Morty and Summers' timelines were out of sync with the rest of the world, but the idea of that happening every time they want to time travel it could be a bit irritating unless they find some way to explain it. so for now, Rick and Morty is leaving time travel to the professionals.
Rick and Morty is one of the most popular shows out there and its foundationof fans shouldn't mess with the devoted Rick and Morty. Observers have a great love for the s. So much so that they dig into every little detail and come up with some of the wildest fan
theoriesout there. Sometimes it seems that the fans know more about the show than the creators themselves. Hit the red subscribe button to be the first to know. From the schwifty Escrima and the content, Rick's character is such an enigma that most fan theories center around trying to better understand what makes the smartest man in the universe tick, but does anyone really know what Rick is? is thinking or even if he is the Rick we think we know this fan theory asks exactly that question when they assume that the Rick we follow on the show is not the original Rick from that timeline they propose that the Rick we originally he belonged in this universe actually died when Beth was young instead of abandoning her and the Rick we know and love just showed up and replaced him years later.
The 20 years that Rick spent away from Beth and his family really raised some questions for Rick in Forty fans. this theory widens that gap but takes it in another new direction, claims that Rick never left, that he stayed in Beth's life the whole time, but then something so unforgivable happened that Rick wiped the family's memories of him for the last few years. 20 years and fabricated the story of her demise, instead whatever was bad enough for a decades-old abandonment to be the happier alternative. Another big question on fans' minds is the question of who Beth's mother is in Season 3 Episode 1.
That backstory turned out to be faked by Rick, left to his own devices. Fans came up with a pretty amazing explanation. controlling and controlling the minds around her who has a long romantic history with Rick could actually be Beth's mother, she would have to have been the body of another woman inhabited by the unit for this to make sense, of course, but in the universe of rick and morty anything truly it's possible another fan theory will be worked out on beth's origin story and this one really takes the cake reminiscent of miss frizzle the redheaded teacher of the magical school bus well one of The most popular theories is that Miss Frizzle is actually Rick's ex-wife. think about it, they are both scientists, they both have technology to shrink and travel inside the human body and to travel into space. mentions that summer has red hair which is known to be a recessive gene that skips a generation and gets passed down from grandfather to grandson now that its a crossover episode we are dying to see whatever you do baby there is one more theory about Rick's wife, only this one isn't so much about who she is but where she is, some fans seem to think something went wrong with an earlier version of Rick's portal gun and Beth's mom was sent to The unknown. think it might explain why Rick is so depressed and angry and why we don't really know what his biggest mission is: he's looking for her under the guise of causing general chaos just when you thought you knew the family, the theory goes that Ponder's if rick is actually morty's father, fans of this theory think rick and morty aren't really related, the multiple ricks actually just placed morty with the family to protect them until they're ready to start adventures talking about family, apparently there could be another one rick's granddaughter is out there and she could be closer than we think according to a fan it's possible tammy is actually another rick granddaughter from another universe where she was born instead of summer tammy seems to resemble a little to Beth and has the same hair color as Jerry, he is also smart enough to live as an undercover agent fooling even Rick himself, maybe his abandonment not from her timeline sent her on a quest for revenge which led her to join the Galactic Federation to track down her grandfather more on the subject of Tammy and the Federation there is an interesting theory as to how they were finally able to track down Rick from our timeline of time in the pilot episode Rick has smuggling mega seeds from morty through interdimensional customs and when they get caught they end up jumping through a portal and appearing in the middle of a coffee shop in Morty and Beth's high school fans concluded that Tammy saw him in high school and befriends Beth in an effort to get closer to the family and keep an eye on Rick if only the bird person could have been saved in the process why was Rick so desperate to get his hands on those mega seeds, though we know? now they cause temporary hyper-intelligence, but if Rick is the smartest person in the universe, why would he need them in the first place?
Could it be that the mega seeds are actually what makes it so smart? what rick is drinking from his famous flask some have put two and two together and decided that it is actually mega-cd juice and that he drinks it constantly to maintain his exceptional intelligence you have to do it for grandpa morty you have to do it either be it mega seeds or just general high IQ we all know rick is smarter than almost anyone else so smart he might actually be aware he is the star of a tv show break the fourth wall in almost every episode and constantly references the fact that what we're looking at are in fact episodes, so this fan theory actually seems pretty likely that it also adds to his rebellious nature, as he fights against the creators who keep him locked up. contained within the show if rick is trapped inside a tv show, what show is he contained in to be exact?
Fans are wondering if he and Jerry are still trapped in the simulation of the mind-blowing episode M. episode as a recurring alien who turns out to be a plutonium and Jerry's tuxedo disappearance some out there make Rick and Jerry forever trapped in a treadmill like simulation created by the alien David Cross, could the whole show take place inside the video game? Roy version 3, the original Roy which allows the player to live the life of a normal man until his death is featured in a previous episode and some believe that the show is simply a part of the latest Roy game but this time Roy is Morty someone in the arcade has played the Morty character since birth and still plays today thank you I'm Jerry oh I know you are Oh Jerry the unfortunate father everyone loves to hate or hates to love in case of Beth, some theorists have suggested that Jerry isn't actually the Jerry we started with, but was switched to another version when Rick sent him to Jerry's daycare in season two.
Rick either got the wrong ticket to pick up or didn't really care which one. one he got and nobody noticed, the more we know and love, he actually might not be the only Morty whose adventures we follow, after all, some believe that almost every episode of Rick and Morty follows a different pair of Rick and Morty. Morty, we know our pair belonged to c-137 earth but there seems to be a lot of evidence pointing to the fact that we could be following Rick and Morty from other timelines without even realizing that this could even include a universe. in which Rick had a plan to kill Morty in Season 3, Episode 10, when Maury takes off with Rick's portal gun to protect his family.
Rick later shows up with a gun and says that he was going to kill Jerry with it. Some think that his real intention was to kill Morty. prevent him from turning into another evil Morty if he leaves it to his own devices. The evil Morty intrigues fans so much that there are a million theories about him, one of them theorizing that Rick's Citadel was built to defeat the evil Morty. The Ricks are notoriously independent people, but the evil Morty has to do it. they've been such a threat that the ones organized to take them down together clearly haven't been successful yet, but we definitely haven't seen the last of the evil Morty, there's a common belief that our Morty isn't the original Rick Morty in the opening titles that there are multiple moments that seem to be fatal for Morty this includes being eaten by three green aliens and most fans believe this actually happened the original Morty died on an adventure and as we have seen him do Rick just jumped into a universe with an existing Morty and a dead or missing Rick and picked up from where it left off another slightly darker theory is that all Morty eventually becomes Rick this one is a bit hard to untangle but the general idea is that Morty will become on Rick and the reason Rick has taken Morty under his wing is to try to prevent this from happening, but Rick, being the flawed person that he is, continues to commit the Same mistakes as always. which leads to Morty becoming just as jaded as he is and they keep going round and round forever.
Most people who watch the show understand that Rick suffers from severe depression, but this theory suggests that Rick's character could actually represent the depression that Dan Harmon has spoken openly about. his struggle with it and has hinted that Rick's manic behavior one minute and depressive behavior the next could be a metaphor for the disease itself continuing down a more mystical path for a moment, some fans have concluded that Rick He is God because of his ability to observe himself on a TV show, the way time seems to move differently around him, and his huge god complex born the idea that the creators of the sho What would make God an atheist scientist in the Almighty himself is an idea that viewers of the show love to speculate about.
Similarly, another popular theory claims that Rick is somehow immortal and that he has created an immortality serum or devised some other way to cheat death. Rick, doesn't that sound super farfetched, well we've seen other ricks die in the past, maybe our Rick is the only one who figured it out, one extremely existential fan has come to the conclusion that the show is an explanation of the nature of In human consciousness in its entirety, Rick represents each of us and each different universe and world is representative of the different parts of us, our ideas and emotions, and how we see the world. little side characters that show up for a minute to delight us one of these lovely characters is noob noob the janitor we meet in season 3 the fans loved him so much i researched a theory about it that noob noob is actually part of his show favorite tv.
In trailers and clips from the show, we see a helicopter pilot who looks almost exactly like him and fans have concluded that they are one in the same other side favorite. the character is mr. poopy butthole the family friend beth accidentally shot which she mistook him for a parasite in disguise fans think mr. Poopy Butthole is actually a parasite after all, but a much stronger one hiding out in the world and pretending to be Mr. poopy butthole to infiltrate the world around him or here's hoping he isn't an evil parasite and for us to see a lot more of him in season four one of the most impressive theories out there is that the whole show is about ice cream there's a ton of ice cream and rick and morty characters of all sorts eat and talk about it this in any given episode, so much so that it has led fans to wonder if the real reason Rick and Morty returned to this particular timeline is because Earth is the only planet he's ever invented. real ice cream it could be amazing if it turned out to be true but this theory sounds a bit ridiculous the show rick and morty is one hell of a ride if you know anything about it which you probably do because why would you be watching this? you know that in it the characters are thrown between an infinity of realities planets and dimensions which is enough to give you a whiplash from the comfort of your living room or more realistically the beds you have on leptin days come on Be honest because the characters jump between Parallel universes.
Fans of the show have developed multiple theories about hidden plots that were created by the writers of Adult Swim, but are hidden from commoners. Let's dive into a theory that keeps coming up. Evil Morty is Rick's original Morty. and this one actually makes sense: a 20-minute adventure when we're not sharing quotes, making memes, or finding the hidden Easter eggs hidden in episodes. Reddit users are popping up suggesting multiple wild theories, like Rick knows he's on TV, which is why sometimes. breaks the fourth wall duh and that rick and jerry never left the simulation meaning the whole show could be a simulation of itself oh for god sake that's enough we've enjoyed perusing these many fan threads excited the theory that stuck out for us is a drum roll please we hope you didn'timporting the title of this video, that evil morty is actually rick's original morty, although it may seem like a stretch, we think fans of the show have really done their homework on this one and by homework, of course, we mean binge watching this series over and over again with complete reckless abandon. the show says that Rick Sanchez has been missing for about 20 years and suddenly comes across the path of his daughter Beth's store looking to move in with her and her family, we are led to believe that Morty grew up without a grandfather and was deprived of that special male bond that comes from hanging out with a twisted old white guy but in season 1 episode 10 we see in Rick's memory that he's holding a little baby Morty if he was wandering around and who knows what universe it doesn't make sense that this the images re-exist on the photo surfaces in the episode turns schwifty in season 2 where Morty sees a picture of Rick holding a baby Morty on Bird's persona wall these two photos just don't add up to the persona either charge of continuing inuity on the show should he be fired or are these clues to something bigger something better our theory is that the baby is not the morty we know and love but is in fact a baby di ferent that's right hold on we think c-137 rick has that memory of a different to mention where he raised a different morty and then apparently abandoned him now we know what you're thinking rick would do that he would trade one morty for another good in the mix up from Rick Lantis we find the lizard Morty the results of Rick combining a lizard and a Morty someone please alert PETA and in Rick's nearby counters we see Rick electrocuting a Morty so we deduce that it's pretty clear that Rick has no problem putting Morty in harm's way because Rick seems to have no attachment to worlds or other people, so it's not crazy to suggest he could trade one morty for another, especially considering how easily he could access a new one. morty in the process the attachment is never fully there knowing you could find another morty with just a quick change in dimensions and the images themselves are also completely different.
Morty is a baby in both but they show different ages which suggests that rick was around a lot more often than we were originally led to believe or at least around some version of morty long enough to take a couple of pictures someone he's going to bed in college in this alternate world where rick is raising morty we think something went wrong because rick isn't, shall we say, the ideal father figure we think his baby morty got corrupted along the way and became evil morty , our theory is that because Morty doesn't have Jerry, he never developed deep-seated, crippling insecurities.
When Rick raised him, he learned to be incredibly cocky and smart. All other versions of Morty aren't, shall we say, the sharpest tool in the shed, so we think the evil Morty must have been with Rick for a long time and the smarts rubbed off on him. outside of it, so what happened in this alternate universe? You ask how Rick was separated from evil. Oh gosh Morty, well we think the answer lies in the opening scene of the show. Morty is taken by his grandfather to his spaceship for the first time. but Morty's demeanor is remarkably laid back, I don't know about you, but if my grandpa were to roll me out of bed and put me on that flying piece of crap, I'd be the least bit amused, sure as hell having to ride shotgun next to his drunken grandpa It's not the ideal scenario, but you're still flying in a spaceship.
We think this isn't the first time Morty has flown. Also, while the man is a certified booze hound, he's particularly twisted in the scene. Is it because something happened that led him to drink? It's such a reckless way that Rick says he wants a fresh start, but from what we think he wants a new relationship with a new Morty, a morty who isn't evil or hates him, so maybe he wanted the original evil morty to die. in the accident to be able to adopt a new morty in another universe, but the plan goes wrong, morty lives and rick doesn't I don't realize that Rick is separated and the evil Morty has left him abandoned on a desert planet, so this Morty is upset about the abandonment and we meet him again in episode 10.
Morty's matrix to lure him out of hiding if you're still not convinced, listen to a couple of lines we pulled that we think are indisputable evidence in the episode close to Rick Rick Rick type counter says a stuck up Morty can lead to that big trouble can be a really bad thing for everyone as if speaking from experience we think Rick is having a particularly poignant case of déjà vu and not It suits him, while the counter might be that we've seen other smug Mortys on the show think police officer Morty and toxic ton Morty, there's something about his tone in this scene that leads us to believe Rick knows what's going to be of him if he continues to display these traits in the same episode Rick tells Morty that he is the richest Rick but does not affirm Morty's claim that he is the most deistic Morty, perhaps further proof that Morty is not he is the original Morty in the final lines of dialogue from an episode 1 in season 3.
Rick is talking to Morty and says that they are both de facto. patriarch of his family and his universe, notice how rick said his universe as if he was hinting that rick doesn't share a bond with that particular morty in any universe so morty's evil behavior points to t his sordid past remember how evil rick is being controlled by evil Morty, well that means everything evil Rick did and said to Rick comes from evil Morty, so when evil Rick says that Rick doesn't care about Morty it sounds like it's being written by the evil Morty. a bit personal, no, he also cuts Rick off and tells him he's not as smart as he thinks he is again, maybe that anger is fueled by something other than a general hatred for X, it could be evil Morty showing his vendetta against him that he's fueled by a lifetime of having to deal with the mistreatment of his father figure, why else would he want to copy Rick's memories and then kill him so we don't forget that looking at these memories, Rick Wells when he sees the picture of the baby Morty maybe that's moving? of emotion is caused by the deep regret Rick feels for the way things turned out, oh my god I can't believe this so if we put all this together it's something like this for the 20 years Rick C-137 was missing. pilot universe he raised an incredibly smart morty and then treated him like trash and classic rick fashion then this little marty grew up and challenged rick's intelligence something happened between them that tore them apart some theorists suggest maybe he He also deivilled Morty's world like he did the pilot universe or just abandoned this Morty to find a better one.
Rick flees to another dimension to assume the role of grandfather and intervene when Morty has real parents raising him. he's so eager to teach Morty about the ways of the universe and Hugh is his partner, but he does it right this time. Rick's guilt over bad Morty causes him to treat Morty better again, which helps strengthen their bond. This could also explain Rick's crazy rant at the end of episode 1 where he says he may have found the perfect Morty who isn't smart enough to rebel or become too smart for his own good, but brave enough to be his. partner Rick and Morty forever forever a hundred years lol clearly something happened in the way Rick raised the evil Morty that made him not so perfect and allowed Rick to easily abandon him but when the evil Lord finds Rick he controls the evil Rick so that he can catch the original Rick, he wants to leak his memories, maybe to put some closure on what happened between them and then tries to absorb his intelligence, showing that he is the one in power now, while obviously we love how the theory fits because it develops evil.
Morty's character is meaningful and shows how complicated Rick is underneath it all. There are some holes that we would like to address. The first is that the baby picture evidence could easily be debunked by assuming that Rick could have visited Morty as a toddler, but we think that's a bit too easy, your problem is that because we're dealing with an infinite multiverse, there's infinite rick and morty playing infinite versions of t themselves regardless of whether or not they're evil heck there's probably a universe where evil morty is rising through the ranks that's the problem with this show anything is possible the writers might as well have tried to reconfigure the whole 20-year-old thing by shoehorning in some random ones.
Rick visits when Morty was younger and now it's your turn to weigh in time to go Morty fans everywhere are eager for the next season of Rick and Morty and we can't wait to see what adventures await us, but there are some things that even the most dedicated and dedicated fans of the show might not know the show has a lot of amazing secrets and gossip behind the scenes so let's get started show me what you got oh this Szechuan sauce who ever thought of that. a cartoon TV show could actually cause riots among its fans and we're not just talking on the message boards if you don't know there was a joke at the end of the season three premiere about a special McDonald's Szechuan sauce.
It was only released for a limited time with a Disney movie, Mulan, which was released in 1998. There was such a demand for the sauce after that episode aired that McDonald's brought it back, only they were out of stock and the fans they literally rioted thankfully for the show. creator Justin Roiland McDonald's sent him a whole bottle if you know anything about Dan Harmon you know he's a huge fan of '80s and '90s pop culture, he really knows his stuff and has found some really clever ways to sneak references everywhere . he can one of the more subtle ones you may never have noticed is the car Morty's father Jerry drives; it's actually the famous Queen family trucker who was featured in the cult hit national satire family vacation Hartman's strained relationship with Chevy Chase from their time on the community might have inspired the design choice a bit too.
Once we know and love cartoon characters as they are, it's really hard to imagine any other voice coming out of their mouths, this is very true for Jerry who has a brilliant voice from the adorable and sometimes perfectly pathetic Saturday Night Live alum Chris Parnell. had it gone in another direction, Jerry could have turned out completely differently. Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston actually auditioned for the role and while we'll always love him as Walter White, we'll stick with our Jerry as he is, thank you very much, that's not the only turnout. However Bryan Cranston had with the show, even though he may not even know about the next one, the now infamous pickle Rick episode instantly became a fan favorite.
I became a pickle morty boom big reveal. breaking bad episode specifically where walt's truck breaks down in the desert crater justin roiland was inspired by the idea of walt totally stuck without the team of people he would normally lean on he wanted to see how smart rick was in In the most isolated circumstances, much like Walt gets Swift, you might not listen to the radio regularly, but it's still one of our all-time favorite songs, the simple yet catchy tune that Rick and Morty cobbled together on the fly to save Swift. the Earth of destruction in a galaxy-spanning version of The X Factor.
It has some pretty amazing origins, although you might think it was written for the episode. he wrote as a child that he wanted to prove to a childhood friend that it was a good song. Swim which Rick and Morty airs on wants to make sure the show stays on the air because of this only two episodes have made it past TV 14 and made it to TV MA but interdimensional cable episode 2 was the first probably because to the repeated mention of a certain body part and Vindicator x' 3, the return of World Ender because, well, with all that violence, it's hard to talk about an animated series that travels through space and time like Rick and Morty without at least mentioning its predecessor Futurama and Dan Harmon know this, in fact during early promotion for the show he compared it to a cross between Futurama and The Simpsons and some fans have even wondered if Futurama and Rick and Morty take place on the same universe or multiverse that people have.
He saw both the slurm logo and the Planet Express ship in episodes of Rick and Morty, so who knows, while they may not want to be him, it seems fans are interested in acting like Jerry at least once. a particular way in the episode Big Trouble in Little Sanchez Jerry is seen playing a game on his tablet that is very, very Jerry, basically popping balloons silently and that's it,well if you're looking for a piece of that action you can actually p play the mindless balloon popping game for real its called rick and morty features jerry's game futurama its not the only world that seems to co-exist with rick and morty though it might be less surprising than the other show that belongs to Rick and Morty Morty's universe was created by Dan Harmon himself, that's right, there's plenty of evidence indicating that the community and Rick and Morty share a timeline or two in the episode of autoerotic assimilation.
Rick even creates an alien version of the community before getting bored of it and moving in classic Rick fashion while on air, the community gained a reputation for developing too many inside jokes over the course of their seasons and Dan Harmon wanted to avoid same mistake when it came to rick and morty so aside from a couple recurring characters from season one they really pushed new stories as much as possible into two and three on most shows out there the writing development process and selling a pilot episode It may take months, even years, but not for the guys behind Rick and Morty.
No, the story goes that the pilot was written in just six hours, not only that, but it happened on the same day Adult Swim Dan Harmon and Justin bought the show. roiland had just come out of the pitch meeting and they immediately sat down together and finished the script at the end of the day Jerry I don't want it to stop whatever is going on here we always wonder where the crazy catchphrase comes from and Rick has his its fair share of good, possibly the most memorable is its classic, while some think it was a reference to the iconic Russian novel fathers and sons, they are actually wrong, that it was written into the script as a nod to Curly from the Three Stooges and the story was made while the fans will miss the community forever.
In fact, we might not get Rick and Morty if the beloved sitcom didn't go under after its unceremonious firing in season three. Dan Harmon was suddenly unemployed and looking for something to fill up. In the time between being fired and returning to finish the community's final season, he began working on Rick and Morty with Justin Roiland, so while we may have lost our favorite Studio group, we've gained a new family of cartoons. favorite animated. Bill Cosby is a touchy subject these days and for good reason, but in reality the disgraced comedian had a very vague involvement in the creation of Rick and Morty or at least his legal team did when he was making cartoons. . for dan harmon website channel 101 justin roiland did one called house shakarez which featured a bunch of bill cosby clones it was unbelievably popular but after five episodes the cosby people took notice and shut them down with a Cease and desist, Roylene's next project was a direct result of Matt getting into legal trouble as some sort of nephew to the lawyers who put down his latest project.
Boylan joined forces with Dan Harmon to create a very dark and twisted version of the beloved 80s classic Back to the Future called the true animated adventures of doc and Marty with an H whose goal was to further annoy copyright lawyers luckily to us Roy Allen had a lot of fun recording the voices of these two characters and decided to deviate from using the cartoon as a protest by creating what would be the first prototype of Rick and Morty, it may seem difficult for a show that is often so absurd to cross over to mainstream, but something about Rick and Morty just can't stop, a striking example of this is the song Terry fold which was co-written by roiland in indie band chaos chaos.
Terry fold started playing on the radio in the background of the episode kick back and relax before it was released on iTunes, but on September 23, 2017 it reached number 33 on Billboard's Hot Rock Songs chart. The popularity of the show has spawned quite a few different side projects, from ad collaborations to animated shorts and comics. Comics have been an amazing way for fans to keep up. With Rick and Morty during the show's long hiatus between seasons, if you're a big fan of the show you know that it mostly takes place in the c-137 dimension, but what might surprise you is that the first ten issues of the comic actually they happened in C 132 with a different Rick and Morty.
If you ever doubted that Rick and Morty had worldwide appeal, look no further than the bizarre adventures of the short film's brush world to change your mind a year to the day. After the surprise premiere of the first episode of season 3, Adult Swim released this wacky Aussie version of Rick and Morty created by Australian animator Michael Cusack, while fans loved it, the mayor of the Aussie city Bendigo didn't and took pains to clarify that his home is nothing like the way the cartoon portrays it, we mentioned earlier that the gap between Rick and Morty seasons was longer than usual, something hardcore fans didn't take to heart light in an effort to keep interest and moderate fans Adult Swim also released a series of brilliant stop-motion short films created by British animator Lee Hardcastle lasting between 15 and 21 seconds.
These small films parodied 16 of the most famous. Movies from 2001 A Space Odyssey to Honey I Shrunk the Kids are all on YouTube and we recommend you watch them. The fact that some big advertisers jumped at the opportunity to partner with Rick and Morty really says something about how huge it is. The feeling is that the show seems like the last show anyone would want to associate with their brand, but the ad execs behind Carl's Jr. . Old Spice and Alien Alliance movie no, really couldn't resist an old friend, even makes an appearance in The Old Spice, discovers the butter robot, poor thing ends up getting eaten by a can of Old Spice, but at least it means the end of its existence.
Rick's unfortunate habit of burping well may always seem to some to be the result of his rampant alcoholism and his lifestyle in general, but it's actually more of a family affair than we realise. the actress can burp whenever she pleases, this is something justin roiland is jealous of, as it takes a lot of effort for him to produce all those rick burps in mid-sentence while filming excuse me in the first season of rick and morty, the writers room, it was a man thing, they have since changed it, but the evidence of that still exists in the animation, there are so many random alien creatures in the show that the team decided. to make his design a bit dirty, a ton of the background aliens you see are actually based on the will of the male anatomy. cartoon character out there will tell you they're a Simpsons fan or at least used to be for a long time Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon are no different and they jumped at the chance to put their Rick and Morty spin on one of the beloved couch pranks. from the simpsons of course things got a little more ridiculous than the springfield family usually does, rick and morty crashed their spaceship into the simpsons house effectively wiping out the family, don't worry though things work out in the end, more or less in the episode, Night Sham Aliens is one of the best with plenty of mind-blowing twists and a guest voice from comedian David Cross as the leader of a group of aliens trying to trick Rick into reveal your formula for scam.
Concentrated Dark Matter is a classic, but it was actually based on something that happened to a friend of Justin Roiland's. Apparently, the guy had a bad acid trip and started hallucinating aliens before he ended up taking off all his clothes to become invisible. Imaginary Space Invaders It's no secret that Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland aren't afraid to let things get pretty dark in the Rick and Morty universe, but it actually could have been even darker originally. Roiland wanted every episode to end. with a version of Earth Being Destroyed, he thought it would make a fun recurring gag, but was ultimately outvoted by the other writers.
Let's get out of here and go on a classic Rick and Morty adventure, yeah. Rick and Morty is a virtual compendium of pop culture references to the excavations at the Titanic. to an obscure reference to family vacations from National Lampoon, the show's writers love to pay homage to what came before, but sometimes they do more than that, sometimes they do it directly. eal of other programs and we mean that in the best possible way. Oh, Pablo Picasso once said that good artists borrow, great artists steal, and Shakespeare blatantly stole plot lines all the time. Wow, so the Rick and Morty writers are in good company.
What we are trying. to say is please don't say mean things about us in the comments or just messenger now without further ado let's look at 10 Times Rick and Morty Shamelessly Stole From Other Shows so Rick and Morty isn't the first irreverent cartoon to mercilessly skewering pop-culture southpark did it and the simpsons did it before them in fact south park did an entire episode based on that very premise just to prove the point sometimes you just have to take what came before and hit it your own touch and have been doing so for over two decades, just as the writers of Rick and Morty have stormed the annals of science fiction to fuel the fever dream The Adventures of a Mad Scientist and His Unlucky Grandson in the episode of season 1 lawn mower og Rick enhances snuffles intellect to the point where he becomes a cybernetic tyrant bent on world domination and if that story sounds like anything familiar ar is because it's a plot similar to the classic 1959 novel flowers for algernon where an intellectually disabled man undergoes surgery that transforms him into an insufferable know-it-all like Snuffles without the world domination part, no, that part came straight from the Lawnmower Man movie about a simple gardener who becomes a megalomaniac cybergod after his mind is enhanced by a computer at least in Rick and Morty snuffles and his army of dogs get their own canine planet to call home, which is sounds a lot like the world of dogs, a pitch from co-creator Justin Roiland in 2012 that was ultimately shot down.
Wow, a whole world populated by smart dogs if there is a contemporary show. Bearing a striking resemblance to Cartoon Network's Rick and Morty, The Venture Bros which premiered in 2004, the show followed dr. adventure rusty his bodyguard Brock and his two home-schooled sons as they stumble upon a series of endlessly bloody misadventures, including one in which the children are miniaturized and injected into their father to look for a similar chronic ailment at the time Morty was shrunk and shot in the bowels of a hobo where rick had built an amusement park because nothing is sacred to rick sanchez given they both reference the iconic Fantastic Voyage but the similarities between the two shows don't stop there dr. adventure as Rick is a mad scientist who regularly puts his children in dangerous situations that often lead to his death and when that happens, he replaces them with clones not unlike how Rick is theorized to have replaced Morty with one of a different dimension. kind of relationship with him, both shows feature countless pop culture references, a parade of whimsical supporting characters, copious acts of violence, and a host of parenting issues, okay I got it, they're there in his prostate, so, how do we get it out? but wait there's more Rick and Morty have collected stories from more than one episode of Venture Bros in the season four finale operation prom dr.
Repeated rejection of women leads him to create a love potion that, once activated, transforms people into mantis-like creatures that become hungry—that is, some four years before Rick Cronenberg. Venture almost followed suit, luckily for Ventures and the rest of humanity the infection didn't spread on a global scale as Brock Samson, his OSI-trained killing machine, put an end to the creatures in classic Brock style with a damn giant knife, maybe if brick employed his services, they wouldn't have had to leave town and start over in a replacement dimension, however, there are some notable differences between the two leads, while Rick, as the older guy intelligent of the universe, dr.
Venture is a trust fund baby living off his father's legacy perpetually on the brink of bankruptcy, but there are multiple dimensions to the Venture universe and one features a super successful version of Rusty Venture, so I guess what we're saying it's just that Rusty is like the Rick who eats his own poop I'm disgusted that my good name is used for this rest and relaxation of Bologna may not be our favorite episode but it has one of the best cold openings after Rick brings out to Morty of a class for a quick adventure of 20minutes that spirals out of control and becomes an epic space opera that culminates in a nervous breakdown for our interdimensional adventurers.
They go to a spa to detox and drink tea. Their personalities literally split in two with a toxic Rick and Morty and a non-toxic Rick and Morty, while Rick and his counterpart try to merge the alter egos. fewer prostitutes and barbiturates the idea of grieving people is an old dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde to the 90s professor and even family matters, but Rick and Morty isn't the first animated show to use it, it also serves as the plot in Dexter's Laboratory in the episode Dr Dee Dee and Dexter Hyde, the main character creates a good and bad version of himself and his sister Dee Dee and just like in rest and relaxation Dexter and Dee Dee have to merge with their others and restore the status quo anyone who has seen a couple of episodes Rick and Morty knows he owes a debt of gratitude for Back to the Future, the iconic 1985 time-travel adventure about a down-on-his-luck teenager, his bad scientist friend, and incest due to the 1980s or a very different era. in which the incest jokes were funny.
I guess we don't know when I kiss you, it's like I'm kissing. Like Rick Doc Brown, he has no scruples in his quest for superscience and deals with some unsavory characters, in this case, a gang of Libyan terrorists. Did we not mention that there is a subplot with terrorists because he is totally skinny? k we can all agree that this is a total move by rick, the doc isn't a total jerk towards marty after all, he helps him get back to the future instead of leaving him to die on a planet of giant frogs like rick might not having done to understand the dynamics of Rick and Morty we have to go further back to another time travel duo mr.
Peabody and Sherman, which follows the time travel adventures of a know-it-all scientist and his hapless sidekick bestowed on mr. Peabody isn't the same jerk as Rick, but he's about as condescending and reckless as you'd expect him to be a talking dog, just ask Snuffles. The show's writers must have an affinity with Stephen King because he is referenced so many times. the series rod, for example, the episode something Rick AddThis way comes plays as a condensed version of necessary things a novel that was later made into a movie in the 1990s the so-called testicular monsters voiced by Jordan Peele and Keegan-michael key bear a striking resemblance to the time-eating lehnga leaders from the movie and book of the same name and the lawnmower man we mentioned above was based on a short story written by the horror master himself, even the title Rick shank's redemption is a reference to King's famous story The Shawshank Redemption, which also got a movie treatment when King wrote everything they didn't make into a movie, as you may recall, the Shawshank plot involves a man escaping from a imprisonment for deception setting up his jailer the same way Rick does in the episode, although Rick does it by jumping from one host's body to another like a possessed spirit because if you're going to copy someone else's homework you should at least cheer them up a bit. relaxed enough.
I admire you Rick, if you got the Robocop and red dragon and raising gazorpazorp references you may have missed more obscure references specifically a callback to the cult classic Zardoz released in 1974 Zardoz features a post-link Sean Connery with a red diaper also a giant floating head that throws weapons for some reason many many weapons that same head can be seen in gazorpazorp spitting sex robots but the gazorpazorp Ian's to breed and stuff also this is not the only episode to feature giant floating heads, either the gas or the pians, an aggressive and violent type who are similarly inspired by the Connery warrior tribe as part of the film if you've had the privilege of seeing Zardoz, you'll know which is absolutely crazy and wouldn't be out of place in an episode of Rick and Morty.
That's not the only dark movie referenced in the episode though, it has a plot similar to 1993's Bad Boy Bubby in which a man is kept indoors by his mother who lies about the world exterior is poisonous morty tells the same lie to morty june his gazorpazorp baby as a means to keep him inside and prevent him from going to the m urder spree as in bad boy blobby morty jr. Escapes Captivity to Explore the World Around Him If you're a fan of Adult Swim, you've surely seen their groundbreaking 2014 short, Too Many Cooks, which begins with the typical sitcom by introducing the show's main characters and then goes on to introduce more. and more characters until things get a little crowded and violent if any of this sounds like it could be a Rick and Morty episode because it totally is and it's glorious.
Season two's full Rick Hall operates on the same premise by introducing more and more shape-shifting parasite characters until it becomes a bloodbath after the Smith family figures out how to tell parasites from legitimate members. of the family. They slaughter impostors with an arsenal of weapons designed by our favorite to mention Hop and Grandpa. It was a fun episode until Mrs. Poopy Butthole Oh, a character everyone suspected of being a hanger-on got shot in the bathroom because living with Rick Sanchez means making terrible mistakes and then drinking your troubles in, we're so glad that be alright the second episode of the second season saw the return of Gearhead, do you know my real name?
The Gear Wars buff from the Season 1 finale, as well as a brief meeseeks cameo in Blitz and shits, Rivoli o'clock berg jr also saw the introduction of the most likable assassin in the universe, Bob Ulis Michael. I loved killing whoever gets smashed to death when Morty rams him with a wrecked spaceship, a decidedly baller move that could have been borrowed from 1988's Midnight Run, where bounty hunters routinely used motorized vehicles to incapacitate their targets. direct homage to Robert DeNiro's vehicle where he flees from the authorities with a wanted fugitive just like Rick and Morty do with fart the inte 3D gas cloud that if spoiler alert turns out to be an all maniacal genocide one of the most memorable parts of the The episode features a series of fart-induced psychedelic dream sequences that pay homage to Vince Collins' malice in Wonderland animated short oh and the sequence features a David Bowie-inspired Musical Numbers Song from Jemaine Clément of Flight of the Conchords fame.
That's a lot of references for one episode. Here comes another funny Mad Max Fury Road that made such an impact that it's not a huge surprise that the show's writers chose to parody it in season three, the episode opens with some rampaging an angry mob of dystopian scavengers throughout Max. Rockatansky proving once and for all that summer doesn't need a sentient spaceship to take care of itself thank you very much however it's not just that Mad Max movie being parodied, the writers also took inspiration from Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome, the third installment of the Mad Max franchise in that film Mel Gibson's Max was forced to fight inside Afra's mention dome with a chainsaw, a sequence that remains one of the best in the franchises, as Rick also throws Max Morty to a Thunderdome arena to keep his hosts distracted so he can continue his stealing business. the powerful isotope 322 to power Aztec, not unlike how writers steal from other shows to peel off Rick and Morty adventurers.
