The new season of Rick and Morty recently debuted, and Adult Swim France shared a claymation video with the short comment “Totoro Rick and Morty.”

In the video you can see Morty and Summer in Catbus with a Squanchy makeover. They catch up to a Totoro styled like Rick (including the drool).
This isn’t the first time Rick and Morty have turned to anime for inspiration. Looking back, there was their anime short Samurai & Shogun, which was written and directed Kaichi Sato. Sato teased that he has some ideas for a sequel of Samurai & Shogun in an exclusive interview with Otaku USA, so we still have that to look forward to!
