Created by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon, Rick and Morty was first broadcast on Cartoon Network's grown-up focused Adult Swim in 2013. Originally conceived as a short parody of Doc and Marty in Back to the Future, the fleshed out characters of Rick and Morty proved to be a huge hit in their own series. Filled with fun, creativity, and black humor, the series follows the wild adventures of alcoholic (and dangerously mad) scientist Rick Sanchez as he travels through space and time with his young grandson Morty. Tackling different dimensions, existential angst, and domestic life, Rick and Morty earned cult status among fans and has gained a reputation as one of the best and most original TV programs of recent times.
