Rick and Morty made a famous appearance last year during Space Jam: A New Legacy along with many of the famous Warner Bros. properties, and the series finally got around to it with a surprise comment in the latest episode of Season 6! While Rick and Morty finally return for the final episodes of the sixth season, the first episode of this latest run completely broke the fourth wall and featured one of the most meta-commentary episodes in the entire season to date. This not only allowed Rick to make the offhand comments he’s made in the past, but also allowed him to address some things that were outside of the series’ usual job.
Episode 7 of Rick and Morty Season 6 is titled “Full Meta Jackrick,” and as the title suggests, it’s an episode where the titular duo crosses the boundaries of the fourth wall and began commenting on how stories in the series have been written thus far. In a special meta-filled space beyond the confines of their usual universe, Rick not only gets to make his smaller comments as he usually does, but also reach out and reference their remarkable movie cameo.
What did Rick and Morty say about their Space Jam 2 Cameo?
When Rick and Morty first entering this meta-filled space beyond the fourth wall in “Full Meta Jackrick,” Rick begins to point out all the common writing styles required to tell the series’ stories. But also uses this time to point out that the longer they continue with this meta-filled premise, the worse their “credibility” will get, similar to their cameo in Space Jam: A New Legacy“It’s worse than you think, Morty. We’re basking in meta-radiation right now. Our credibility is being permanently eroded. Every second we spend here is the equivalent of ten Space Jam cameos.”

It’s just one of many asides in an episode where it seems like the Rick and Morty team is openly dissecting how they come up with new episodes of the series (and even battling a lack of motivation to do so), so it’s hard to really pinpoint how they feel about this Space Jam cameo as a whole. But it’s certainly a negative reaction to it, and it’s in line with the manner Rick and Morty behaved himself before.
