Catch an Upcoming Episode of Adult Swim's 'Rick and Morty' on Instagram

Weren't you just thinking that it would be awesome to watch TV 15 seconds at a time?

But you’ll have to watch it in 15-second chunks. That’s more than 100 individual clips. “Adult Swim feels Rick and Morty fans are more than up to the challenge.” So, there’s that. The animated show, which is sort of like Ren and Stimpy meets an obvious Back to the Future reference, follows the bizarre exploits of a sociopathic (and drunk) scientist and his not-so-bright grandson.

Here’s the gist from today’s press release: 

After missing for nearly 20 years, Rick Sanchez (Justin Roiland) 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) isn’t too thrilled about the tearful reunion as Rick’s arrival serves to shake things up quite a bit 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. That wouldn’t be so bad if not for the fact that Rick continues to involve his grandchildren Morty (Roiland) and Summer (Spencer Grammer) in his insane adventures. 

Dan Harmon (Community, Channel 101) and Justin Roiland (House of Cosbys) are the creators and executive producers.

The episode is now live on the Rick and Morty Instagram account. If your micro attention span can’t tolerate 100 clips (or worse, 30 minutes on Instagram) you can catch the episode when it airs on normal-people TV on Monday at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim.
