When Rick and Morty first aired on AdultSwim in the USA back in 2013, the animated series quickly became a huge hit with fans around the globe. With the titular characters both voiced Justin Rolland, viewers quickly found themselves loving the incredibly dysfunctional grandfather/grandson bond between the pair. Over the past few seasons, the pair have jumped through space and time and crossed paths with several different characters, some of whom have been voiced by the biggest stars on the planet.
