Fans of ‘Rick and Morty’ are a rare breed. A mishmash of attributes, they are smart yet simple, plain yet fashionable, and funny yet foul. They can be introverts or extroverts, showstoppers or party poopers (depending on whose party they are at). They can confuse, convince, and conspire, but more often than not, they’re just someone living their life, which they don’t take it too seriously anyway.

Leon Roche, who religiously watches the show, says it’s quite difficult to put a finger on the Fan profile.

“A Rick and Morty fan usually has a dark and loose sense of humor, alongside a rebellious outlook on life and government. They are pretty intelligent as well,” says Roche, who is the chief admin of a Facebook group dedicated to Rick and Morty.

For Tom Turnbull, a fan from Ohio, the show is a goldmine of repeatable phrases and inside jokes. Tom’s conversations with his roommates are mostly Rick and Morty quotes. “I think the best part of the show, and why it resonates with so many people, is that we can’t escape the hurt and the harshness of life, but we can laugh and enjoy what we do have.

One of my favorite things about the show is, how people find something in the show to connect with—from the 13-year-olds who buy out the bins at Hot Topic, to the 40-year-olds who livestream the episodes as they air. One common trait we all seem to share is not taking things too seriously,” he says.

You can either like the show or not like the show, says Jon Steinmiller, another fan from Ohio. “Most people try to be “edgy” and dog on the show while others love and express their passion by doing things that are related to it but then the edgy people come out and shit on everything that the expressive fans do,” he says.

Nicolai Alexander Hansen, a fan from Denmark, was introduced to “Rick and Morty” two years ago at a New Year’s party. Since then he’s been a fan. According to Nicolai, the show celebrates diversity, while driving home the message that one should learn to live life without inhibitions.

“I have always had a very similar mindset to Rick— that nothing really matters and people should stop taking things so seriously,” he says.

The show’s artwork

The animation and art style of “Rick and Morty” is simple yet singular, brilliantly capturing the emotions and body language of all its characters—humans, aliens, animals, and inanimate objects.

Hilarious expressions

Like millions of “Rick and Morty” fans, Chris Smith from Oregon is fond of the show’s script. “I think it’s very creative—especially the weird names they come up with for different alien species. It’s fun. Rick being a really cool drunk grandfather with wisdom about science and the universe is amazing. That’s probably why I watch the show,” he says.

Nicolai has a lot of favorite quotes from the show.

“My absolute favorite would have to be ‘Wubba Lubba Dub Dub’ because of the meaning behind it (I am in great pain, please help me).

To sum up, “Rick and Morty” fans are like Rick and Morty, with the occasional Jerrys in the group.
