Best Rick and Morty Episodes

The Top Ten

1 Total Rickall

It has to be total rickall! No doubt, it was most entertaining, most interesting, most creative and perfect story line. This is by far my favourite episode

He does have these weird sounding catch phrases

Remember the barbecue..

2 Close Rick-Counters of the Rick Kind

Really interesting plot, brilliant and funny dialogue and just 100 % what we expect from Rick + Morty.

What? Morty doesn't deserve to be tortured!

One of the things what really got me into this show.

Such a great epiode it's very much interesting,cool,and it actually took its to a darker turn and the dramatic ending it was just perfect and flawless,a really good episode for first season and a really good episode better than big problems for little shancez 👍

3 Rick Potion #9

This set the tone of the series for me, it's dark and messed up but it's also funny.

Take me to Morty.

It was sort of a game changer for me

So good

4 The Ricklantis Mixup

The Ricklantis Mixup had some of the funniest moments, a deeper look at the citadel, which is easily one of the best concepts in the show, and the return of one of the best villains in the show: Evil Morty.

This is just so much stuff put into a single episode, a lot of different storylines. You can rewatch it and notice things you didn't before. The message of the episode is pretty dark, but that's exactly why it's so amazing. The jokes in this one are also very clever and funny.

Just a great all round episode.

6 The Ricks Must Be Crazy

This is the only episode that was strong all the way through. Where other episodes had their low points this one just had it all, the whole time.

Keep Summer safe...

I don't know how this is so low on the list at #7 it was really good all the way rickall is overrated it was just random and to be honest I'm gonna upset some people but I thought mortynight run was the worst episode...usually lower episodes will have a few things going for it but not that one it only had the moonmen song which showed random trippy moments, honestly I felt like that episode should never have come out, it was like it was made for potheads or people doing shrooms. You take away those 2 song parts and there is literally no good parts or any decent plot in the whole episode. It's trash! But the ricks must be crazy was a rollercoaster all the way through.

"Morty, you gotta flip 'em off! I told them it means 'peace among worlds'! How hilarious is that! "

I'M DEAD! 😂😂😂

7 Rixty Minutes

This episode had a great ending.

8 The Rickshank Redemption

This is without doubt, the greatest episode of rick and morty. It was the funniest, darkest, most epic, most clever, one of the most emotional episodes, and this isn't mentioning the ending, which was surprising, hilarious, and a great reference to the pilot. - kempokid

It perfectly balances everything that is great about the show ties in a lot of other episodes without feeling crowded. Amazing.

This episode might be new, but my god is it the best! The storyline is great and genius and every character is at their best.

Show at it's best

9 Mortynight Run

I'm speechless on how good this was

An underrated episode. art and writing are stunning and I wish this episode got more recognition.

Really loved this episode! Especially the song Goodbye Moonmen was speechless to hear. Also, an amazing plottwist.

When the cop kills himself that was deep and hilarios and great songs and writting

10 Lawnmower Dog

This episode is better and make senser than inception movie!

I like this episode because at the beggining the dog pees on the carpet and Jerry (Mortys dad) pushes his head on the urine.

The Contenders

11 Look Who's Purging Now

This one is seriously underrated I really enjoyed this one, and the rocks must be crazy really surprised me it was really good. Total rickall was ok it was just random and weird it didn't really have a twist or good plot I don't know why its up there and close Rick counters of the Rick kind was overrated, it was good but didn't live up to the hype for me.

This episode made me laugh!

12 Meeseeks and Destroy

The Meeseeks crack me up every time, even though their voice is a little ridiculous, they never annoy me and make me laugh. There's something about them. I also very much enjoyed how dumb Jerry was. And the side quest with Morty's adventure was pretty great. I loved the loving connection between Rick and Morty too. Perfect episode, in my opinion.

I really enjoyed this one. The Meeseeks were quite entertaining and it was sweet how Rick comforted Morty after the jellybean incident.

Best of the best

14 The Wedding Squanchers

It was awesome how they played NIN's Hurt at the end.

Best episode ever
Such an annoying cliffhanger

15 Get Schwifty

This episode should be higher on the list- it was so good! The plot was creative and entertaining. Also, even though this is adult swim, there actually was still a subtle moral in there (which is great! You're never to old for morals). Morty learned not to abandon the ones you care about when they're in need and to have faith in their abilities. Rick was by far at his most likable self in this episode, and when he hugged Morty in the end was so sweet! Overall, I really enjoyed Get Schwifty and it should be ranked higher on this list.

This legit should be #1-10 and then the list should continue.

This is my favorite episode - Cartoonfan202

You just gotta get schwifty

Let me out, what you see is not the same person as me
My life's a lie, I'm not who you're looking at
Let me out, set me free, I'm really old
This isn't me
My real body's slowing dying in a vat
Is anybody listening, can anyone understand
Stop looking at me like that and actually help me
Help me, help me I'm gonna die
