It’ll be out of this world, Morty! This October, Adult Swim’s interdimensional – and unsuspecting – space crusaders Rick and Morty will make their home entertainment debut with the release of Rick and Morty: The Complete First Season.

After missing for nearly 20 years, Rick Sanchez (Justin Roiland), a genius scientist, suddenly arrives at his daughter Beth’s (Sarah Chalke) doorstep looking to move in with her and her family. Beth welcomes him with open arms, but her unremarkable husband Jerry (Chris Parnell) is less than thrilled about the reunion as Rick’s arrival shakes things up around the household. Rick converts the garage into his personal laboratory and gets to work on all sorts of dangerous sci-fi gadgets and contraptions, which wouldn’t be so bad if he didn’t constantly involve his grandchildren Morty (Roiland) and Summer (Spencer Grammer) in his insane – but wildly entertaining – adventures that transcend space and alternate universes.
Created and executive produced by Dan Harmon (Community, Channel 101) and Justin Roiland (Adventure Time, House of Cosbys), the half-hour, animated comedy series is produced by Starburns Industries, a groundbreaking animation production studio based in Burbank, CA. Under the creative partnership of Dan Harmon, Dino Stamatopoulos (Moral Orel, Mary Shelley’s Frankenhole), Joe Russo II (The Simpsons, Rug Rats), and James A. Fino (King of the Hill), the company produces TV shows, features, commercials and new media projects.
Throughout its first season run on Adult Swim, the critically-acclaimed Rick and Morty has continued to increase delivery of targeted adults 18-34 and has emerged as one of the network’s most popular series.
As for the shirts, you can pick which one of these two you want. They’re both available for purchase at Hot Topic.
