Now that everyone’s favorite grandfather/grandson team is back for another 70 episodes, expect to see “Rick and Morty” pop up in the zeitgeist in new, strange ways. Stranger than the song the title characters “made” for Kanye West’s birthday? You be the judge.
For example, there are plenty of odd, uncalled-for items related to the show that are for sale.
Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland, the show’s creators, sat down with Vulture to review some this merch. Some of the items ― like Roiland’s favorite, a replica Portal Gun that projects a portal on the wall ― are kind of cool. But there’s some bizarre stuff, too, from kids’ backpacks to “Rick And Morty” erotic fan fiction.
Obviously, there are also a few Pickle Rick-themed items.
“Pickle Rick is incredibly graphically enticing,” Harmon told Vulture. “You want to draw it yourself. You want to sculpt it. You want to get it as a tattoo.”
