Rick Sanchez is one of the title characters of Rick and Morty. He is the grandfather of Morty and Summer Smith, Beth's father, the father-in-law of Jerry Smith, and a mad scientist. He is voiced by co-creator Justin Roiland in the first six seasons.
Why He's "Wubba Lubba Dub Dub!" To Us
- Almost everything that comes out of his mouth is hilarious and makes people laugh.
- He has established himself as the smartest man in the universe, having developed interdimensional travel via the portal gun as well as various other gadgets.
- While he can often be harsh on his grandson Morty, he has shown that he genuinely cares a lot for Morty and is willing to put his life at risk for him.
- He has also shown care for his friends as well, such as Mr. Poopybutthole, Squanchy, and Birdperson.
- He has generated several memorable quotes such as "Wubba Lubba Dub-Dub", "There is no God", and several others.
- He also briefly used a flattering new catchphrase in the form of "I DON'T GIVE A FUCK!!!"
- He serves as a perfect parody of Doc Brown from Back to the Future (Fun fact: he started life as a more straightforward parody of Doc Brown before Rick and Morty was developed into a show).
- I turned myself into a pickle, Morty. I'M PICKLE RICK!
- His constant alcohol-induced belching is a hilarious and endearing quirk.
- He can be a jerk most of the time, but he does have care towards his family, even though they don't agree with everything Rick does.
- He can act like a huge jackass and be hypocritical at times.
- He can also be very lazy at times. He has the energy to build a robot to serve him butter, but he can't at least reach the butter from the table.
- His belching can get on people's nerves once in a while.
- Although he's the self-proclaimed smartest man in the universe, he has also shown a few moments of stupidity as well.
- He has once caused the destruction of humanity using a serum he invented.
- Rick may not be 100% responsible, he is still placed guilty to why a vengeful variant of Morty turned out the way he did, and the things he's done such as tyranny, and genocide on the Citadel.
