Hey everyone this is my first video essay analysis and I’m really excited to get this channel going! I love both Rick and Morty and Bojack Horseman and hope I can open up as much discussion and analysis about these two beautiful shows as possible...especially in the wake of Bojack Season 4 and the last episode of Rick and Morty Season 3. As always, the best way to help with the channel (if you’re interested) is to Like, Subscribe, Comment, Share with Friends, Post on Facebook, or on sites like Reddit or 4chan (especially Reddit!). Curious to hear what you think of the commentary.

Quick summary: I'm looking into how Rick and Morty and Bojack Horseman, two adult animated shows from Adult Swim and Netflix, have their characters blatantly discuss the subtext of their respective shows. From Rick to Bojack to Beth to Princess Carolyn to Morty to Diane and Todd, none of the characters in these two cartoons hold anything back. Bojack is constantly reflected on his inability to find happiness and yet, even though he is not afraid to speak frankly about his struggle with depression and with being kinder to his friends, he cannot seem to apply this to his own life. The same goes for Rick, who constantly mistreats those around him but claims to somehow be the smartest person in the universe. Obviously this had some repercussions in episode 10 of Season 3.
