Mordecai and Rigby are the main protagonists of Regular Show. Mordecai made his debut in 2 in the AM PM while Rigby made his debut in The Pilot. Both are groundskeepers of the Park but also slackers. After the dramatic ending with Pops' defeat over Anti-Pops, in which he sacrifices himself to save the universe, Mordecai and Rigby finally part ways; Mordecai became an abstract artist, while Rigby marries Eileen and has two daughters with her.
Why They Shouldn't Be Fired
- The two starred in one of the most influential Cartoon Network shows but also one of the most influential cartoons of all time, somehow saving CN from the incredibly deep rut it was in the late-2000s.
- The two are virtually inseparable, always finding ways to forgive any breaks in their friendship.
- Mordecai is the tall, responsible, mannered one, while Rigby is the short, immature, energetic one in the duo.
- They usually learn from their mistakes and fix them in the end of the episode.
- They had a bit of character development as Mordecai goes from being shy awkward around women to eventually marrying a bat-woman named Stef and they have children and Rigby goes from teasing Mordecai over his dating problems to helping him get a better life and pointing out his problems showing how much he cares about him and even becomes a devoted husband to Eileen.
- Their catchphrases: YEAH-YUH, WOOOOOOAH!!!!, Check it, STOP TALKING!
- Mordecai punching Rigby repeatedly can be funny.
- Every episode that has ever aired has always shown the two as a duo.
- Although their Boss, Benson, they are not offended by his yells and harsh words. Especially compared to Pops.
- They sometimes fight each other.
- They can be very slackly or lazy (not in a good way either).
- They are not very good role models (especially in the early seasons) because as pointed out above, they slack and don't do their work most of the time, though they got better as the show progressed.
- Episodes like "Do Me a Solid" or "It's Time" show the two characters at their worst.
- J.G. Quintel uses his natural speaking voice to voice Mordecai.
- Despite being a raccoon, he looks more like a South American coati.
