Rick and Morty recently made an appearance in the popular kids show My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.
Both series, despite their drastically different targeted demographics, share in much of the same fan base. However, due to the fact that My Little Pony is aimed at children, some questioned whether having a cameo of characters from the adult-themed series Rick and Morty was appropriate.
One thing for sure is that the field of animation is quite closely knit, and as a result jokes and cameos like these happen all the time. It's often the eagle-eyed fans who point these blink-and-you'll-miss-it Easter eggs out.
This cameo fits right into the amusing theme of many Ricks and Mortys all existing simultaneously within the multiverse of Rick and Morty. An amusing theme that even became the basis of the Rick and Morty game app: Pocket Morty's.
Now will Pony Rick and Pony Morty join the Pocket Morty's game? We would hope so, but that's another question for another day. A man can dream though, a man can dream.
