In the Season 3 premiere of Rick And Morty, which aired back in April, Rick tells the alien holding him captive, Cornvelious Daniel, about the magical chicken McNugget Szechuan Sauce that McDonalds released for a limited time in the late 1990s to promote the Disney film Mulan.
I want that Mulan McNugget sauce, Morty, says Rick at the end of the first episode. Thats my series arc, Morty! If it takes nine seasons!
Well, it wont take nine seasons, because McDonalds came through in glorious fashion. They sent it to one of the shows creators to celebrate the new episodes of Rick And Morty airing tonight.
Kudos to McDonalds, not only for surviving in a dimension where its always 1998 just to bring back the Szechuan sauce, but also crafting a spectacular letter to creator and voice of both Rick and Morty Justin Roiland.
But fans shouldnt worry about being left out. McDonalds chef wrote that a few lucky fans will also get to experience the glory, and then tweeted this photo out early Sunday.
So its possible were in for a more widespread, albeit limited, release of that glorious Szechuan sauce.
New episodes of Rick And Morty air tonight on Cartoon Networks Adult Swim at 11:30 p.m. ET.
