WATCH: Taika Waititi makes his Rick and Morty debut

TV and Movies 19/11/2019

Kiwi director and all-around legend Taika Waititi has made a hilarious appearance in the new season of our favourite animated show Rick and Morty.

Season four's second episode, 'The Old Man and the Seat' sees Waititi lend his voice to an app-developing alien named Glootie.

Glootie's app aims to distract humans while his species steals Earth's most precious resource.

Fellow Kiwi Sam Neill also voices a character of the same race as Glootie. It's not the first time the show has had some New Zealand influence, with Jemaine Clement playing a mind-reading fart back in season two.

Show creator Justin Roiland told Entertainment Weekly earlier in the year that he and co-creator Dan Harmon wanted to give the species "a Kiwi flavour".

The new season debuted on Adult Swim on November 10th, with the  three previous seasons available to stream on Netflix.
