Fans loved to see their favorite Looney Tunes characters back in action. But more than that, Rick and Morty’s fans were absolutely shocked to see the duo making a surprise cameo in the movie.

Rick and Morty appear in their Spaceship, and Rick addresses the Tasmanian Devil (Taz) as the “badger thing.” He says, “We are done running tests on your badger thing; it turns out his condition is irreversible.” Then, they leave Taz with LeBron and takes off with Rick shouting, “He’s your problem now, Dum Dum.”

Obviously, watching Rick and Morty in the new Space Jam movie was a delight for everyone. That’s why fans quickly went on to Twitter to express their feelings about this incredible cameo.
