With each month that passes without hearing anything about Rick & Morty’s third season, it’s looking like Mr. Poopybutthole’s forecast of “a year and a half, or longer” may unfortunately come true. But Adult Swim is at least trying to fill in the gap with Rick & Morty: The Non-Canonical Adventures, brief shorts less than 20 seconds long that will air as bumpers on the network soon.

They even do Honey I Shrunk The Kids, only since it’s Rick, the outcome is rather different.
