Rick Sanchez is a sociopathic genius scientist who drags his inherently timid grandson on insanely dangerous adventures across the universe. Rick lives with his daughter Beth's family and constantly brings her, his son-in-law Jerry, granddaughter Summer, and grandson Morty into intergalactic escapades. Matt Carson lives in Brooklyn with his wife and daughter. He does yoyo tricks and is the author of over 4,000 haikus about famous dead people called Haikubituaries. This is his first book of compiled quotations from a science fiction cartoon show.
A blistering, demented animated series... The audaciousness of this
inventive series... The wisdom dispensed by Rick may be open to
question, but you have to admire the bluntness. Grandparenting at
its unhinged finest.--The New York Times
A wonderfully cynical sci-fi comedy, but its second-season finale affirmed the show's secret humanity... Both innovative and classical in its storytelling... It's about characters who take multi-dimensional leaps and bounds with every episode-but also confronts relatable human truths about the intangible pull of family and loyalty.--The Atlantic
Funny and edgy... There are shades of Futurama, South Park, and even Beetlejuice in the half-hour show, but at the same time, it has the right amount of edge and wackiness to feel entirely original... Harmon and Roiland take a stock situation of a kid and his lovable granddad and turn it on its head, but not before spinning it around and around. The animation, overseen by art director James McDermott, is fresh, colorful and as wacky as the script.--San Francisco Chronicle
In the golden age of narrative TV, cartoons offer countervailing subversive pleasures: They're juvenile, satiric, surreal. Those words all apply to the wild spree Rick and Morty.--People Weekly
