About Pickle Rick
Rick and Morty is a popular science-fiction adult cartoon show airing on Adult Swim, a late night block of Cartoon Network. He’s a sarcastic genius and someone who really doesn’t give a damn. But that’s probably because he’s drunk most of the time…
But specifically, Pickle Rick is a version of Rick Sanchez he turns into… well, just because he can. At least that’s what he says. But the real story is that her daughter Beth and Morty had arranged a family counseling session, but Rick being Rick, he wanted to avoid going altogether. That’s why, as an excuse, he turned himself into a pickle which could only talk and see. He couldn’t move or do anything else due to the absence of limbs. But hey, this is Rick we’re talking about. Thanks to sheer dumb luck and his own brilliance, he was able to equip himself with limbs, weapons and other stuff and kill a lot of bad guys.
Pickle Rick is a real trouble maker and is the most unique looking form of Rick you can think about cosplaying!
“Pickle Rick” is the third episode of the third season of the Adult Swim animated television series Rick and Morty. Written by Jessica Gao and directed by Anthony Chun, the episode premiered on August 6, 2017. In “Pickle Rick”, the eccentric scientist Rick Sanchez turns himself into a pickle just as he and his family are scheduled to attend a therapy session. The episode follows Rick’s adventures as a pickle and the rest of the family’s trip to therapy.
The episode parodies action films and was inspired by the Breaking Bad episode “4 Days Out”. In a continuation of the third season’s storyline of Beth and Jerry’s divorce, “Pickle Rick” explores Beth’s unhealthy relationship with Rick and their views on intelligence and self-improvement. The episode was highly anticipated, with a rough cut animation premiering at the 2016 San Diego Comic-Con, and was watched by 2.3 million viewers when it first aired on Adult Swim.
The episode received positive reviews, with critics praising the animation and design of Pickle Rick, the fight scenes, the performance of guest actor Danny Trejo (as Jaguar), and the episode’s ending. It won Rick and Morty the 2018 Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Animated Program, the show’s first Emmy Award. Several merchandise products, particularly of the character Pickle Rick, have been released.
As Beth, Morty, and Summer prepare for family counseling, Rick informs Morty that he cannot go, having turned himself into a pickle. He denies that he timed the experiment to avoid the counseling session, but the family notices a telltale mechanism rigged to drop a syringe in him soon after they leave. Beth takes the syringe, leaving Rick alone on his workbench.
Rick is knocked off the bench by a cat and then washed into the sewer during a rain shower. Despite his only mobility being mouth movement, he kills a cockroach by biting it in the head, controls its corpse by stimulating its brain with his tongue, and uses his control over it to set up a lab in the sewer, and build himself a powered exoskeleton from rat corpses. Via jetpack, he escapes the sewer out of a toilet in a secure compound, where he kills several guards. The compound’s administrator sends a prisoner named Jaguar to fight Rick, but Rick persuades Jaguar to join him, and they escape together in the administrator’s helicopter after rigging the compound to explode, killing the administrator.
Meanwhile, the therapist Dr. Wong asks Beth about Rick’s decision to turn himself into a pickle, while she deflects to talk about Summer huffing paint and Morty urinating in class. Beth is in denial that the syringe is anti-pickle serum, and Wong suggests she and Rick avoid emotional vulnerability. As the group is saying I-messages to communicate their feelings, Rick enters to get the syringe. Wong makes him admit it is anti-pickle serum and that he lied to Beth to avoid therapy. Rick says that he sees no value in therapy because he wants to change the world. Wong says he uses intelligence to justify sickness and avoid self-improvement.
On the way home, Rick apologizes to Beth for lying, then uses the syringe to turn back into a human. Morty and Summer express interest in further therapy but Rick and Beth ignore them by mocking Wong and planning to go out drinking.
In a post-credits scene, the villain Concerto is preparing to kill a restrained Rick and Morty in his gigantic piano, but Jaguar saves them. Rick tells Morty that this is why to not go to therapy.
