Rick and Morty is an American animated television series created by Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland that premiered on December 2, 2013 on Cartoon Network's [adult swim] programming block.

The show's first season consists of 11 twenty-two minute episodes. After airing the first six episodes, [adult swim] renewed the show for a second season. [1]

The show was based on a series of crudely animated short films for Channel 101 based on a Back to the Future parody "Doc and Mharti", known for their crude content, "The Real Animated Adventures of Doc and Mharti"; by Justin Roiland.

Plot

The show centers around the titular characters Rick and Morty. Rick is a mentally gifted, but sociopathic and alcoholic scientist and a grandfather to Morty; an awkward, impressionable, and somewhat spineless teenage boy. Rick moves into the family home of Morty, where he immediately becomes a bad influence.

  • Morty: (voiced by Justin Roiland) - Rick's impressionable grandson who is often dragged along on his grandfather's escapades.
  • Jerry: (voiced by Chris Parnell) - Morty's insecure father, whose disapproval of Rick's influence on Morty only deepens his marital troubles with Beth.
  • Beth: (voiced by Sarah Chalke) - Morty's holier-than-thou mother, a cardiac surgeon for horses.
