One-Off Characters: Season One

One-Off Characters: Season One

One-Off Characters: Season One


Sometimes we have the reoccurring or one-shot characters that are critical to the plot. Then there are these rejects, the one-offs that barely last five minutes. They may not be important to have their own character profiles, but they still interacted with the central characters that they're at least worth a sentence or two. So let's have a look at the D-Listers who make up the Rick and Morty world.

Frank Palicky


First Appearance: "Pilot"
Voice: Ryan Ridley

An unfortunate bully who had the guts to confront Morty, Frank is a teen with a hair-trigger temper. Everything seems to make him mad. In any other cartoons, he'd likely be a reoccurring antagonist in Morty's life, but Rick quickly freezes him with one of his inventions not seconds after he makes his first appearance. Morty is the last thing Frank sees, his foot shatters and he crashes into a million pieces, right in front of Summer who has a crush on him.

At least he died doing what he loved: terrorizing a fellow student.

 Davin


First Appearance: “Pilot”
Voice: Dan Harmon

Davin is an employee at the horse hospital Beth works in. Jerry is painfully aware of his sexy appeal and fears his wife could end up having an affair with him. Thankfully Beth doesn't harbor any feelings for Davin. The latter does; he tries to seduce Beth in "Rick Potion No. 9", but being an unfortunate victim of the flu, he turned into a Mantis creature due to Rick's potion. Jerry shot him dead before Mantis Davin could kill Beth.

Mrs. Pancakes


First Appearance: "Lawnmower Dog"
Voice: Melique Berger

Mrs. Pancakes is a fictional TV character Mr. Goldenfold enjoys watching. Apparently, she's got a lot of attitude, often spouting the catchphrase, “You don't know me!” Mrs. Pancakes appears in Goldenfold's dream when Rick and Morty use a device to inhabit his mind. The duo later intercepts her dreams, finding it to be a host for Goldenfold's shameful subconscious desires that he'd never admit in public.

Melissa and Scary Brandon


First Appearance: “Lawnmower Dog”
Voice: Melique Berger

Scary Terry's wife and his son. Melissa is getting awfully tired of her husband taking his anger out on his family, but in spite of his issues, they have a loving relationship. It just goes to show even murderous monsters can have a good life.

 

image


Scary Teachers


First Appearance: “Lawnmower Dog”
Voice: Maurice LaMarche (Scary Teacher), Phil Hendrie (Scary Glenn)

When Rick and Morty enter Scary Terry's nightmares, they find out he has a reoccuring dream of his high school years. There, he was an awkward, unpopular student. The biggest obstacle came from his teacher, a harsh educator that really brought down Scary Terry's self-esteem. Rick and Morty stands up for Terry, helping him with his issues.

Terry's next dream is a pleasant one with a pleasant teacher, the calm, hippie educator Scary Glenn.

Guy In Mascot Suit


First Appearance: "Anatomy Park"
Voice: Rob Schrab

One of the survivors of the defunct Anatomy Park, the mascot guy only lasts for a few minutes before Ruben coughs him out to death. Poor Mascot Guy, he really didn't wanted to die. Morty tried his best to keep him alive, asking for his name to reassure him. He never got the chance to say it in full though, but it's “Al” something.

 

image


Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C


First Appearance: “Anatomy Park”

Throughout Morty's trip in “Anatomy Park”, he's run into a lot of bacteria and diseases swimming in Ruben's body, but there is one consistent creature hot on their trail: Hepatitis B. The most aggressive of the lot, the beast keeps hindering Morty's progress. Just when Morty and a girl named Annie is about to make it out of Ruben, Hepatitis B blocks their path. Luckily, Hepatitis C comes to the rescue, killing B and even giving Morty and Annie a thumbs up before departing.

Jerry's Bosses


First Appearance: "M. Night Shayma-Aliens!"

You know Jerry is in a simulation if life is going swell for him. Jerry presents his new (read: lame) slogan for apples and is immediately approved. In quick session, Jerry gets promoted and an award for his hard work. Alas, it was an alien simulation all along and a lazy one at that, just to prove how dumb Jerry is that he couldn't figure it out.

Jerry's real bosses are less inspired with his logan and tell him to get out.

 

image


Pawn Shop Owner


First Appearance: "Raising Garzorpazorp"
Voice: Maurice LaMarche

An alien pawn shop owner Rick often negotiates with. One of the items Rick buys from him is an alien robotic blow-up doll for Morty that subsequently ends with him creating a son.

 

image


Brad Anderson


First Appearance: “Raising Garzorpazorp”
Voice: Maurice LaMarche

Brad Anderson is the creator of the popular syndicated comic strip Marmaduke. He appears out of nowhere and gives Morty Jr sagely advice: take his anger and channel it into something creative like he does. Apparently in the Rick and Morty verse, Brad Anderson has a lot of anger to unleash.

Famous Jerry


First Appearance: "Rixty Minutes"
Voice:

In an alternate world, Jerry Smith isn't a loser, but a famous movie star. However, the deeper Regular Jerry digs into his alter ego, the more he realizes his better half has an even sadder life. He's constantly hopped up on drugs and dreadfully lonely.

One drug-induced day, Famous Jerry is on hot pursuit by police officers as he drives over to that dimension's Beth. The Beth of that world succeeded as a famous surgeon, but she, too is lonely. Famous Jerry confesses how much he misses her, saying he'd go back and change it all just to be with her.

Regular Beth witnesses this using goggles that show off their alternate selves. Touched, she and her Jerry make up.

Ants in my Eyes Johnson


First Appearance: “Rixty Minutes”
Voice: Justin Roiland

Ants in my Eyes Johnson is a salesman who advertises various electronics and appliances. By all means, he's a normal guy...with the exception of ants in his eyes and his inability to feel pain, so much that being on fire has no affect on him.

 

image

Mr. Sneezy and the Sneezy XL


First Appearance: “Rixty Minutes”

Mr. Sneezy is presumably the owner of the company that sells the Sneezy XL, a car that has a horn that makes a sneezing sound. That'd be a poor way of alerting others, but the car compensates by being able to propel underwater.

 

image


Two Brothers

First Appearance: “Rixty Minutes”

A movie starring two brothers in a van. When a giant meteor hits, the brothers are forced to run, but they're ambushed by giant cat monsters and a tornado! And that's when things get knocked into twelfth gear. The Earth is invaded by a Mexican armada with weapons made out of tomatoes. But hold on, there's more, old women are coming to attack! And then the moon comes crashing into Earth.

In spite of everything, the two brothers have got each other's backs.

 

image


Ball Fondlers

First Appearance: “Rixty Minutes”

An A-Team-ish show with a hardcore group violently beating their enemies with guns and explosives. The team consist of a tough-looking man, a warrior woman, a bipedal sentient alligator, and a crudely drawn bald man.

I'd watch it, honestly.

 Alternate Cast of Saturday Night Live



First Appearance: “Rixty Minutes”

It's Saturday Night Live with a Piece of Toast, two guys with handlebar mustaches, a man painted silver who makes robot noises, Garmanarnar, three...uh, uh, uh, uhhhh...he'll get back to that one, a hole in the wall where the men can see it all, and returning for his twenty-fifth consecutive year, Bobby Mortimer.

Due to creative differences, Bobby Mortimer and Piece of Toast apparently do not get along backstage.

 

image


Real Fake Doors Salesman

First Appearance: “Rixty Minutes”
Voice: Justin Roiland

A host who sells fake doors; that is, doors that don't open at all. Once he's finishes with the commercial, Rick and Morty watches the host drive home and make a sandwich. The duo assume they're watching his private life without his knowledge, but the salesman quickly resumes his advertisement. The commercial had never ended in the first place.

 

image


Gazorpazorpfield: Gimme My Darn Enchiladas!


First Appearance: “Rixty Minutes”
Voice: Justin Roiland (Gazorpazorpfield), Jon Arbuckle (Tom Kenny)

The Garfield cartoon in the Gazorpazorp world: in this version, Garfield really, really hates Jon. Also, he apparently likes enchiladas in this verse, not lasagna.

 

image

Trunk People



First Appearance: “Rixty Minutes”
Voice: Ryan Ridley

Trunk People are people created by scientists to pleasure both male and female partners, but Proposition XW2 is looming around the corner to prevent them from getting married. Trunk People are trying to legalize their marriage though.

Top Hat Jones and the Dead-Eyed Kids


First Appearance: “Rixty Minutes”
Voice: Justin Roiland

Top Hat Jones is a leprechaun with bunny ears who really just wants to eat his cereal in peace, but those gosh darn kids are always after his breakfast goods. Turns out he has a right to be worried, those dead-eyed misfits disembowel the poor guy and eat the cereal right out of his organs! Yeesh.

Strawberry Smiggles is sold in retail stores everywhere. Part of a yummer balanced breakfast!

 

image

Unmuscular Michaels

First Appearance: “Rixty Minutes”

Three skinny guys who get buffed up thanks to Turbulent Juice. Morty isn't sure what the product is really selling.

Baby Legs and Regular Legs


First Appearance: “Rixty Minutes”
Voice: Justin Roiland (Baby Legs), Rob Paulsen (Regular Legs)

Baby Legs is a detective who is an adult with baby legs. Though he's the best detective the division has, he has a real problem with teamwork, so the chief pairs him up with Regular Legs. There, Baby Legs realizes his tiny little limbs can only take him so far. Humbled, Baby Legs works with Regular Legs and takes down the criminal.

 

image


Mrs. Sullivan


First Appearance: “Rixty Minutes”

Mrs. Sullivan is the main character of the movie Last Will and Testimeow: Weekend at Dead Cat Lady's House II. When Mrs. Sullivan passes away, she leaves behind her nine felines. The cats band together and secretly control their late owner's body, transforming her life by getting her a new job and a new boyfriend.

The movie was written and directed by an alternate Jerry Smith, something Regular Jerry is confounded by.

image

Hamster Who Lives in People's Butts

First Appearance: “Rixty Minutes”

These anatomically impossible creatures live in a dimension where they make their homes in human butts. This draws a lot of questions from the Smith family. Rick is so annoyed that he takes them to the dimension so they can ask themselves. The Smiths treat this as a family vacation and even Rick, previously grumpy, starts to enjoy himself.

And yes, they do get an answer: there is a house inside the human where the hamsters live.

 

image


Slow Mobius


First Appearance:
"Ricksy Business"
Voice: Chris Romano

Slow Mobius is an alien who can control time. Instead of using it for the greater good, Slow Mobius just messes around with his abilities. Rick is definitely not impressed given he invented a device that can freeze time.
