Getting bummed out cuz the third season of Rick and Morty is coming to an end? Same. Peep this 2006 Back to the Future parody that gave way to the royally messed-up, yet enduring show we’ve all grown to love.
At the time creator and voice actor Justin Roiland had no knowing what would become of this short.
“I actually made this as a way to poke fun at the idea of getting cease and desist letters. At the time (October 2006) I had nothing to lose and my original intention was to call this “back to the future: the new official universal studios cartoon featuring the new Doc Brown and Marty McFly” and then I’d just sit back and wait for a letter from their lawyers to arrive. That’s actually why it’s so filthy. I was just looking to “troll” a big studio.”
All I know is that I’m glad he took that legal risk, because the world is a greater place with Rick and Morty in it.
