Adult Swim’s Rick and Morty will make the leap from the small screen to specialty retailers this fall, through an all-new deal between the television network and Ripple Junction, purveyors of licensed entertainment and pop culture apparel, it was announced today by both companies. The two-year deal will yield a line of licensed t-shirts and assorted apparel for men and women featuring characters and scenes from the popular animated series created by Dan Harmon (Community) and Justin Roiland (House of Cosbys, Adventure Time). The first Rick and Morty apparel designs will debut at specialty retailers nationwide this October, with the announcement being made as part of this week’s MAGIC Marketplace industry event in Las Vegas, Nev.

After missing for nearly 20 years, Rick Sanchez (Roiland) suddenly arrives at his daughter Beth’s (Sarah Chalke) doorstep looking to move in with her and her family. Beth welcomes him with open arms, but her unremarkable husband Jerry (Chris Parnell) isn’t too thrilled about the tearful reunion as Rick’s arrival serves to shake things up quite a bit around the household. Rick converts the garage into his personal laboratory and gets to work on all sorts of dangerous sci-fi gadgets and contraptions. That wouldn’t be so bad if not for the fact that Rick continues to involve his grandchildren Morty (Roiland) and Summer (Spencer Grammer) in his insane adventures.

The half-hour Rick and Morty animated comedy series is produced by Starburns Industries, a groundbreaking animation production studio based in Burbank, CA. Under the creative partnership of Dan Harmon, Dino Stamatopoulos (Moral Orel, Mary Shelley’s Frankenhole), Joe Russo II (The Simpsons, Rug Rats), and James A. Fino (King of the Hill), the company produces TV shows, features, commercials and new media projects. Throughout its first season run on Adult Swim, the critically-acclaimed Rick and Morty has continued to increase delivery of targeted adults 18-34 and has emerged as one of the network’s most popular series.
