The sophomore season of Rick and Morty debuted on July 26, 2015, picking up where Season 1 left off. The season premiere, "A Rickle in Time," was a continuation of the first season's finale, "Ricksy Business."

Season 2 really hit its stride with episodes like "Mortynight Run," where we are introduced to a hilarious Jerry daycare center, and the brilliant "The Ricks Must Be Crazy," where Rick and Morty journey inside a miniature universe that exists inside Rick's car battery.

Perhaps the most memorable episode from Rick and Morty Season 2 was "Get Schwifty," where a giant alien head appears over earth demanding to hear an original musical number.

In classic Adult Swim fashion, the premiere of Rick and Morty Season 3 debuted on April 1, 2017, as part of an April Fool's prank. Fans wouldn't get to see the remainder of the season until July 30, 2017. Just like Season 2, Season 3 picked up where the previous season left off.

One of the most popular episodes from Season 3 was "Pickle Rick," where Rick turns himself into a pickle to get out of going to family therapy. Another memorable episode was "Vindicators 3: The Return of Worldender," which featured Avengers-like superheroes that Morty always admired finding themselves in a series of deadly puzzle games set up by a drunk Rick from the night before.

In an unfortunate post-credit scene of the season finale, Mr. Poopybutthole tells the audience it will be a long time before Season 4 debuts.

The first season of Rick and Morty seemingly came out of nowhere when it debuted on Adult Swim on December 2, 2013. Created by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon, the first season breathed fresh air into Adult Swim's lineup, providing a new cartoon in a time where mediocre live-action series were dominating the network.

One of the most memorable episodes from Season 1 was "Meeseeks and Destroy," where Rick introduces Jerry, Beth, and Summer to a "Meeseeks Box" that can summon blue creatures to help accomplish any task (at which point they explode and die.) The finale of the season, "Ricksy Business," saw Rick throw an insane house party where guests included Squanchy, Gearhead, and Abradolf Lincler, a strange hybrid of Abraham Lincoln and Adolf Hitler.

Other great episodes from Season 1 include "Lawnmower Dog," "Rick Potion #9," and "Raising Gazorpazorp."
