The first season of Rick and Morty was the start of a worldwide phenomenon that would go on to become not only one of the most popular animated shows, but one of the most popular TV shows ever. It introduced us to the drunken genius scientist and his meek grandson, as well as a host of supporting and guest characters.
However, Season 1 as a whole is hardly Rick and Morty at its best, and this is widely acknowledged by fans. Some episodes are worse than others, and some of the earlier ones were full of a bizarreness which was fortunately eliminated later.
The animating style was still in development during the first season, so characters and locations look slightly different from their present appearances, and for those who have seen the show in its later years, this is definitely distracting.
Even so, there were definitely some redeeming standout episodes, and these few justify watching all eleven of them.
With such substantial differences in quality, the first season of Rick and Morty is an ideal list to rank from worst to best. Which episode will come out on top?
