So how did Rick and Morty, your new animated original series, begin?
Justin [Roiland, co-creator] had always been sort of playing around with these very intense, strange characters. They started off as a kind of punk rock, sneering immolation of a relationship we all grew up on, which is the one between Doc Brown and Marty McFly, and they kind of evolved from there.
