Adult Swim Packs a Full Schedule for SDCC

The network knows how to do the Con

Rick and Morty ShowAdult Swim

Adult Swim is always one of the most popular networks at San Diego Comic-Con each year, and this year the network will be bringing hits like “The Venture Bros.,” and the popular Rickmobile to the fans that want them the most. Most of the events are open to everyone with a SDCC badge and there’s plenty of loot to stuff in your loot-sacks.

There are a ton of activities and events that are open to the general SDCC badge-wearing public, so be sure to set some time aside to hit the Adult Swim booths and special areas. Adults Swim will also allow Comic Con attendees to get a first look at the network’s all-new programming, with celebrity-filled panels. There will also be free signings featuring series stars, creators and producers from audience-favorites Robot Chicken, The Venture Bros., FLCL, and Dream Corp LLC.

There’s a big camping theme this year and park entrance is free for fans 18+, the area will be located right behind the convention center at 5th Avenue Landing and Convention Way, Thursday through Sunday, with fan programming at night Thursday through Saturday. Amenities of the park include all-new games like canoe races and archery contests, chainsaw-wielding wood carvers, merit badges and tasty eats from the hotdog roaster. Provided by State Farm, lockers will be on-site to keep fans’ stuff safe while they jump in canoes to race other campers. Collectible merit badges can be earned by campers who make the most of their park experience. Look for Badge Badger and State Farm brand ambassadors, who will be awarding badges to stand-out campers who are best prepared for the con (think sunscreen and hydration).

There will also be the Camp Store, which will be open late and stocked with exclusive Adult Swim merchandise. A SDCC badge is required for purchase, but that’s the only requirement. Fans can find more information and register for access to the park at AdultSwimPresents.com.

Campers both in the park and all around the country will enjoy live broadcasts of staple streaming shows including FishCenter, Stupid Morning Bullshit, Williams Street Swap Shop, and more. Celebrity guests will be stopping by throughout the convention to chat all weekend long, so like we said, reserve some time for Adult Swim. The streams will be live starting at 3:00pm PT Thursday through Sunday and run late into the night. Fans stuck in line (or at home) can watch anywhere live at AdultSwim.com.

At night there will be free screenings and activities. Nighttime on the Green this year will feature the future of Adult Swim; fans can watch the latest episodes and pilots, indulge in the camp-favorite S’mores Station featuring fun-size SNICKERS bars, and get access to special talent. For fans who want even more Rick and Morty, SNICKERS is bringing the #Rickmobile to San Diego all week long. You can track the movements on social media as the custom mobile pop-up shop stocked with exclusive Rick and Mortyitems makes its way across the city.
