Rick and Morty leaves fans reeling with epic South Park and The Simpsons crossover episode – The Sun

RICK and Morty has left fans amazed with an epic crossover episode with South Park and The Simpsons.

Thanks to a bizarre Easter egg in Solar Opposites, Rick and Morty recently connected with The Simpsons and now, the show has connected with another adult animated sitcom, South Park.

Rick and Morty's latest instalmment saw the surprise collaboration come to fruition, including a South Park Easter egg which revealed a shocking twist.

The episode, titled The Vat of Acid Episode, begins with Morty ripping apart Rick's latest invention, which he believes doesn't come close to other devices dreamed up by his grandfather.

Eager to prove his grandson wrong, Rick creates a time travel machine and after Morty meets an unnamed woman and falls in love with her, he finds ultimate happiness, which soon turns to unbearable pain when the flight they board crashes on top of a mountain.

To survive the bitterly cold weather conditions, Morty and his fellow survivors turn to cannibalism and fans that were paying close attention would have noticed that some of the clothes the group wear bear a striking resemblance to the four kids in South Park.

Aside from Morty and his girlfriend, the other survivors from the crash wear wearing the same hats as Stan and Kyle from South Park, as well as similar coloured clothing.

Morty himself can also be seen donning an orange hoodie, just like the infamous Kenny McCormick.

Fans loved the episode, as one exclaimed: "The Vat of Acid is by (and for) now THE BEST #RickandMorty episode of the season! I think it's on the same league as the best episodes ever too."

However, some fans were upset that Morty didn't get his happy-ever-after with his girlfriend, as another yelled: "JERRY REALLY JUST RUINED MORTY’S CHANCE AT LOOOOVE NOOOOOOOOOO #RickandMorty."

The furore comes after Rick and Morty star Chris Parnell says 'the show's possibilities are endless' and has claimed there's no end in sight after season 5.

While the comedy is currently airing its fourth season, a fifth is in production and Chris gushed about how much was in store for the show's die-hard fans.

Chris spoke to Digital Spy and indicated that the Pickle Train isn't slowing down anytime soon, with the cast happy to continue as long as the network keeps requesting new episodes.

He said: "I think they hold the show to such a high standard – Dan [Harmon] and Justin [Roiland] and the whole writing team."

He added: "But I don't know. When you've got a universe set up like Rick and Morty, the possibilities are really endless."
