The Premiere of 'Rick & Morty' Season 4 Honored Late TV Producer Mike Mendel

By

On Sunday, Nov. 10, Adult Swim fans and Pickle Rick enthusiasts were treated to the Season 4 premiere of Rick and Morty. And while I haven't watched the episode in its entirety (so no spoilers, please!) I was curious to hear the episode was "dedicated" to Mike Mendel. 

So, "who is Mike Mendel?" you might be wondering. While he happens to have been a behind-the-scenes star, you are 100 percent familiar with a large majority of his work.

Who is Mike Mendel from Rick and Morty? His work is seriously legendary.

Mike, (birth name: Joel Michael Mendel), worked on a wide range of cinematographic projects that you've definitely heard of. In addition to producing 22 episodes of Rick and Morty, he's produced a total of 207 episodes of The Simpsons, and even got his name on the 1996 drama Jerry Maguire, according toThe Hollywood Reporter. 

In his lifetime, Mike has achieved an impressive total of four Emmy Awards. So, it's safe to say he's slayed the game.
