Rick is an eccentric, elderly, alcoholic scientist who has moved in with his veterinary surgeon daughter Beth's family. He spends most of his time taking his young grandson Morty (and later his granddaughter Summer) on dangerous, outlandish adventures throughout the cosmos and alternate universes. Compounded with Morty's already unstable family life, these events cause Morty much distress at home and school.
Each episode (except for the pilot) ends with a post-credits scene that completes each episode

this show was based on a satire surrounding an AU Doc and Marty (back to the future) where Doc is an alcoholic sociopath and Marty is an extremely nervous and suggestible sidekick. they go on adventures to alien worlds and alternative dimensions which are essentially creative excuses to take a crap on the real world through a commentary on social and political paradigms.

Interesting! So it has its origins as a Back To The Future parody of sorts.
