Fans want to bring back ‘The Big Bang Theory’ Season 13 because it missed an opportunity to cross over with ‘Rick and Morty’! Here’s to imagining what would go on if Sheldon Cooper and Rick Sanchez met!
You might think ‘The Big Bang Theory’ and ‘Rick and Morty’ attract two entirely different audiences, but they’re quite similar. TBBT follows the misadventures of four intelligent but socially inept friends, Sheldon Cooper, Leonard Hofstadter, Raj Koothrapali, and Howard Wolowitz.

‘Rick and Morty’, on the other hand, is an animated series which depicts the universe-hopping adventures of Morty and his grandfather Rick. Known for his reckless, pessimistic personality, Rick (a sociopathic mad scientist) although brilliant can be difficult to deal with.
Although both shows might suggest they’re different, there’s a common link between each of its characters. Sheldon Cooper and Rick Sanchez would probably never get along, but they’re both scientists and possess genius minds. If ‘The Big Bang Theory’ Season 13 would’ve featured a crossover with ‘Rick and Morty’, we’d get to see them both in action!

Who will win in a battle of wits between Sheldon Cooper and Rick Sanchez?
If you haven’t watched ‘Rick and Morty’, you’d understandably believe that Sheldon Cooper is a bigger genius than Rick Sanchez. The Caltech theoretical physicist and nerdy genius graduated college at the age of 14 and even won a Nobel Prize. He was at the top of his field, crossed unimaginable limits of scientific research and is one of television’s smartest characters.
Then there’s Rick Sanchez, who is famous for his recklessness and his recurring nihilistic behaviour. He is a mad scientist who knows all about the universe, and thus believes that life is a traumatizing and pointless experience. He takes his grandson Morty on crazy interdimensional adventures and invents anything from a butter-passing robot to a space cruiser.
Sheldon might be an expert physicist, but Rick Sanchez can travel back and forth in time. He transforms his absurd theories into real inventions which obviously gives him an edge. Sheldon might be able to name every Star Wars character in their order of appearance, but Rick … he can freeze time. It’s clear as day that Rick Sanchez will outsmart Sheldon Cooper on any day.
What would happen if Sheldon Cooper met Rick Sanchez?
Considering Rick’s chaotic character, it seems like he’d annoy Sheldon after discovering the oddball he truly is. He would frustrate Sheldon by ruining his routine, sit in his favourite spot on the sofa, and order a different cuisine on Chinese takeaway nights.
Sheldon Cooper surely loves the idea of time-travelling, but seeing Rick travel through multiple dimensions in real life will drive him crazy! He’s obsessed with logical reasoning, remember? ‘Rick and Morty’ is rooted in science, but Sheldon won’t be paying heed to this mad scientist for any reason.
Sheldon frequently makes conversation surrounding his intelligence and it’s safe to believe that Rick won’t just accept it! We can expect plenty of banter between these two eccentric characters if they were ever to meet.
‘Rick and Morty’ is the perfect show for TBBT fans
The tale of Rick Sanchez and his grandson Morty is going strong ever since it premiered in 2013. It is full of biting humour and sci-fi references which makes it a great watch for fans of ‘The Big Bang Theory’.
‘The Big Bang Theory’ Season 13 is a far-fetched dream so fans can find comfort in ‘Rick and Morty’ instead. One of the highest-rated comedy shows at present, the animated story’s foul-mouthed spacefaring duo have won hearts across the globe.
We’ll never know what would happen if Sheldon Cooper and Rick Sanchez met, but we can always revisit their stories. Maybe they would’ve worked it out as scientists and even got along in the future? Maybe Morty, Rick’s grandson could have befriended Sheldon’s friends? This is a crossover we never got to see, but we can ponder over its possibilities forever!
