Rick and Morty
- 4 Seasons
In the animated comedy Rick and Morty, a demented scientist involves his grandson in his unwise and dangerous experiments. Morty is a 14-year-old boy who lives with his parents, his sister, and his mother's father. Rick, Morty's maternal grandfather, is an alcoholic mad scientist who insists on being a nonconformist. He's also not very nice. Rick's inventions lead him on adventures through time and space. He's usually accompanied by Morty. Morty is a good-hearted, kind kid. That means he's the moral opposite of his prickly grandfather. Together, they make a volatile traveling duo. And they get into lots of trouble everywhere they go. The series was created by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon for Cartoon Network's Adult Swim programming block. Roiland provides the voices of the series' main characters. He has also worked on Adventure Time and Gravity Falls. Harmon is the creator of the NBC sitcom Community. He has also written a book and hosted a podcast. The series' abrasive, irreverent, edgy humor is aimed specifically at an adult audience. But it appeals strongly to adolescent boys, as well. The tone and humor of the series is typically dark and ironic. That makes it especially appealing to the cool crowd. The series debuted on the Cartoon Network in 2013. The series continued through a fourth season. That season's 10 episodes were split into two different five-episode blocks. The first block aired in November and December of 2019. The second block aired in May of 2020.
