Rick and Morty is delightfully insane and can even make us laugh with sponsored content about thieving hamburger mascots who aren’t Hamburglar, and we’ll be getting more episodes starting this Sunday. The “Not Justin Roiland” YouTube account (which definitely isn’t run by Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland) has shared the “leaked” opening credits for season 3 (video above).
We already saw the first episode of season 3 as an April Fool’s Day surprise. That episode, “The Rickshank Redemption,” featured Rick setting up a false past and tipping off a real-life frenzy for Szechuan dipping sauce. That was quickly followed by rumors about McDonald’s bringing the sauce back and recipes for making your own. There’s been a development on that front.
At the San Diego Comic-Con panel for Rick and Morty, Roiland revealed McDonald’s has promised to send him an entire jug of the discontinued Szechuan sauce. If anybody’s jumped through enough hoops to finally obtain saucy triumph, it’s him:
“I heard they had a limited batch at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Canada,” Roiland told reporters. “I called every McDonald’s in L.A. and went online. I even might have tried to connect with people in Canada to see if they could mail it to me — and that failed.” (Via)
Roiland said he and co-creator Dan Harmon will record a video of them trying the sauce, hopefully without disappointment. It would be a shame if he waited twenty years only to find out it tastes like sh*t. Speaking of tasting like sh*t — flawless segue — here’s a new promo for season 3 in which we find out Morty’s math teacher Mr. Goldenfold definitely eats poop.
Based on Marty’s outfit, this is probably from whichever episode Pickle Rick is in.
Rick and Morty returns with a Mad Max-themed episode on July 30th at 11:30 pm EST on Adult Swim.
