As fans eagerly await the return of the beloved wacky grandfather-grandson duo to the screen, there's no better time to revisit some of the show's standout episodes. Here are the top six Rick & Morty episodes to keep you entertained until the next season's premiere.
6. Pickle Rick (Season 3, Episode 3)
Pickle Rick is an iconic episode that captures yet another one of Rick's crazy experiments where he turns himself into a pickle just to avoid going to family therapy.
What starts as a silly idea turns into a wild and violent journey as Pickle Rick faces off against sewer rats and government agents, showcasing the show's absurdity and dark humor at its best.
5. Morty's Mind Blowers (Season 3, Episode 8)
In this hysterical episode, Morty discovers that Rick has been erasing his traumatic and embarrassing memories in a secret chamber under the garage.
The episode takes viewers on a surreal journey through Morty's erased memories, from the suicide of his teacher, Mr. Lunas, to the moment Beth chooses Summer's life over Morty’s.
4. Get Schwifty (Season 2, Episode 3)
Get Schwifty is a hilarious episode, in which Rick and Morty face a cosmic musical showdown when an alien race demands they perform a hit song to save the planet.
The episode's premise of the Earth being teleported by the Cromulons and the demand for an original song uttered is the perfect example of how the show can take a seemingly ordinary concept and turn it into something completely absurd and entertaining.
3. The Rickshank Redemption (Season 3, Episode 1)
Picking up immediately after the season 2 cliffhanger, this pivotal episode shows Rick's escape from prison, while his dismantling of the Galactic Federation serves as a backdrop for a deeper exploration of this complex character.
Its skillful linking of various storylines and episodes from the previous seasons, including the Wedding Squanchers storyline, makes the episode one of the show's standouts.
2. The Vat Of Acid (Season 4, Episode 9)
Being a meta-commentary on storytelling and choice, The Vat of Acid, in which Rick provides Morty with a virtual reality device that allows individuals to go back and correct their mistakes or avoid death, is a clever exploration of the concept of second chances.
It's a thoughtful and self-aware episode that examines the consequences of one's actions and the value of life.
1. The Ricklantis Mixup (Season 3, Episode 7)
Rated as the best episode of the series, The Ricklantis Mixup, also known as Tales from the Citadel, is an anthology style episode that explores the lives of various Ricks and Mortys, living on the Citadel.
