Adult Swim’s Rick and Morty from Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon is one of the best animated series on TV today, without a doubt. It’s a science fiction comedy that’s fat-trimming funny, but will sock you in the gut with something emotional out of nowhere from time to time and be back to the laughs before you’ve had time to recover.
When it comes to a show like this we don’t always think about how it was born, the path that it traveled to become a real thing that we look forward to watching when it’s on. YouTube channel The Court of Source was just created late last month, and only has three videos uploaded so far. But in their latest video, which is set to pass an impressive 300,000 views, they offer the story of how Rick and Morty came to be for any fans interested in knowing it.
You can check out the video below.
The show stars Roiland (The Sarah Silverman Program, Adventure Time), who voices both of the title characters. He’s joined on the main cast by Sarah Chalke (Scrubs, Roseanne), who voices Morty’s mom and Rick’s daughter Beth; Chris Parnell (Archer, Saturday Night Live), who voices Morty’s father and Rick’s son in law Jerry; and Spencer Grammer (Greek, As the World Turns) as Morty’s sister and Rick’s granddaughter Summer. Roiland created the animated show with Harmon, who previously created the hit sitcom Community.
And if you’re missing Rick and Morty while we wait for season three to arrive, don’t forget about the mobile gamePocket Mortys.
