Weird dumb question from a dummy who is dumb....does anyone know the voice actor of Rick-Morty (I have heard they are one and the same, is that true?) preps himself for doing Rick's voice by drinking beer or soda or something beforehand? I mean, jeez, I know people who talk just like Rick in reality to a degree, and it's pretty damn convincing.
That's Justin Roiland who co-created the show and yes, he does both voices. He also does Lemongrab from Adventure Time. I doubt he drinks beer before he does his lines though, haha. Thats what I also love about the show, the dialogue and how the characters talk seem real, it's great and hilarious.
I have no life and I watched a bit of the original inspiration for Rick and Morty which was an abominable flash cartoon called "Doc and Marhti" which was a more than obvious ripoff than even Rick and Morty is of Back to the Future. It was hideous animation, and was yet another one of those jokes about Doc being a pedophile for Marty which is why they even hang out so much, and just all I can say is HOW THE HELL DID THIS get looked at, and someone said "Wow, yknow what, with a bit of tweaking, thing could have some really cool animation/has some comedic characters." It just is such a surreal train of thought, but I guess it works....NOT SAFE FOR WORK AT ALL if anyone here is interested in watching it. NOT. SAFE. FOR WORK. It's really jarring too because Rick and Morty's personas are pretty much in there and exactly the same nearly, its just....uncomfortable and bad. Yeah.
I hope Rick and Morty gets an animation bump along their next seasons!!
Didn't Superjail do something similar? I remember the first ones looked all jittery and spastic, and after a while they started to move in loops, and very smoothly. (I kinda like the jittery bumpy movements better for that show tho)
I also like how all of the Pupils in R&M look like asterisks/squiggles (see Morty below)
On a different note, R&M is my new favorite show- the animation kicks ASS. I hope they will go back to the feel of the pilot though and bring a lot more focus back to Rick again, and a bit less on the side characters/family. Rick's the best part of the show, and I feel like after the pilot episode, he's gotten a tiny bit less psychotic and a tiny bit less dialogue than he did originally. The other characters are real funny too, but they aren't as interesting and unique as Morty/Rick's foil to each other is.
Here's my theory: Ep. 1 -- main two character showcase, BIG BANG to start off. Next few eps -- world development. This includes side characters, less-seen aspects of personality, and different settings. Then, the rest -- the part of the show everyone enjoys!! The characters are known, so more creative jokes can be used, things can be quicker paced, and much more variety than if they had left the side characters undeveloped.
