Watch an Early Version of RICK AND MORTY’s Pickle Rick (Exclusive)

Rick and Morty have done a lot of silly, downright stupid things, and I mean that in the best way possible. But Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland really outdid themselves in season three, when Morty walked out to the garage to discover his grandpa had inexplicably transformed himself into a pickle, the most absurd version of the smartest man in the universe the show has ever had (and that’s saying something). But just like every other memorable character, Pickle Rick had to get his start somewhere (no, we don’t mean as a cucumber), and in this exclusive extra from the show’s upcoming third season Blu-ray, we can see that Pickle Rick was ridiculous even when he was just a black and white cartoon.

This animatic, which is a rough animated rendering, shows Pickle Rick being washed away by the rain into the sewer where he lures a cockroach to come to him by biting himself, releasing brine, so he can kill the cockroach with his teeth, rip the skull off, and push on its brain with his tongue so he can control the dead body. (Like I said, stupid in the best way possible.)

Pickle Rick will never not be insane.

This isn’t the only animatic that will be included on the season three Blu-ray though. All ten episodes will have one, as well as exclusive commentary for each episode. They will also each get an “Inside the Episode” feature, as well as an “Inside the Recording Booth” session. And the home release will also include “The Origins of Rick and Morty.”

While it comes to all stores next week on May 15, Best Buy and FYE will also have special editions. Best Buy will have an exclusive Steelbook version, and those who buy either the Blu-ray or DVD at FYE will get an exclusive series poster.

But please, when you get yours, don’t scream out, “I’m Pickle Rick!” Not everyone will know that’s not as stupid as it sounds. Well, it is, but you know what we mean.
