Watch ‘Community’ Creator Dan Harmon’s New Adult Swim Series ‘Rick and Morty’
It’ll be a month or so yet before Dan Harmon‘s voice returns to ‘Community‘ season 5 for the January 2 premiere, but why wait that long for a fix? The ‘Community’ creator’s new ‘Back to the Future‘-inspired Adult Swim series ‘Rick and Morty‘ is available to watch online right now, featuring the voices of series creator Justin Roiland, ‘30 Rock‘ alum Chris Parnell and Sarah Chalke!
The entire 22-minute pilot chronicles the absurd adventures of elder super-scientist Rick and his perpetually nervous grandson Morty, both voiced by Roiland himself. The demented relationship between the two and their far-out explorations owes to the Doc and Marty relationship of ‘Back to the Future,’ only about 50x more deranged on the Doc’s side.
Adult Swim has ordered ten half-hour episodes to premiere on December 2, with later installments to feature the vocal talents of Tom Kenny, ‘Futurama”s Maurice LaMarche, ‘The Daily Show‘ breakout John Oliver, ‘Arrested Development”s David Cross, ‘Degrassi’ star Cassie Steele, along with Claudia Black, Virginia Hey, Rob Paulsen, Jess Harnell, Phil Hendrie, Dana Carvey, and Aislinn Paul.
