Rick and Morty 

The sixth season of the best animated series for adults is here. The series follows the adventures of a grandfather, Rick, and his grandson, Morty. Rick Sanchez is the example of the typical mad scientist. He is irresponsible, alcoholic, a genius, selfish, a bit depressed, and clearly insane. For different reasons, Rick has moved in with his daughter Beth whom he hasn't seen for 20 years. At that moment he meets his grandson Morty of his. Without paying him much attention, she decides to force him to become his partner in all kinds of adventures so that the boy develops an intelligence like his and doesn't end up like his father, Jerry, a complete idiot. Thus, grandfather and grandson will live interdimensional adventures thanks to a device built by Rick that allows him to access infinite dimensions. Of course it's all despite the family's opposition.
