Characters from Adult Swim’s Hit Show Will Alter Springfield Reality
Adult Swim and FOX announced today that characters from the original animated series Rick and Morty from Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland will be making an appearance in the Season Finale of FOX’s award-winning animated hit comedy The Simpsons. Taking over the famous Simpsons “Couch Gag”, Rick and Morty will bring their multi-dimensional insanity to the home of iconic characters Marge, Homer, Bart, Lisa, and Maggie. The Season Finale episode will air May 17 (8:00-8:30 pm ET/PT) on FOX.
“This couch gag plays like a full-fledged mini-episode,” said The Simpsons creator and executive producer Matt Groening. “It’s going to be a real treat for fans of The Simpsons, fans ofRick and Morty, and fans of animated belching.”
“We are honored and blown away to be a part of The Simpsons,” said Rick and Morty co-creator and executive producer Justin Roiland. “If I could go back in time and tell myself that this would happen, I’d be like ‘No way, Jose!’ I simply can’t believe it. I think we might all be living in some kind of massive computer simulation to be honest. Look up simulation theory. That would explain how this happened.”
