The first half of Rick and Morty‘s fourth season is up on Netflix at long last, giving fans five fresh episodes of the intergalactic duo.
In a new interview, News.com.au took co-creator Dan Harmon to task over the weekend for the show having never had an Australian guest star, pointing out that the series has featured the likes of New Zealand actors Sam Neill, Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement.
However, Harmon reassured the publication that it was a “pure coincidence” that the series was yet to feature an Aussie, saying “Australians are the funniest people in the world, I swear to god.”
Neill and Waititi appear together as members of an alien species in the show’s new season, with Harmon explaining it made sense for them to belong to the “same alien species.”
“My point is I love Australia, I’m so sorry to all of you. We definitely don’t look at a map and say, ‘Where are the funny people?’” Harmon added, before promising the publication he’d come down to Australia and “let spiders crawl on [his] hand.”
