It’s time to “get schwifty,” Chandler, because the Rickmobile is coming your way.

Fans of the animated adult comedy “Rick and Morty” can come face-to-face with their favorite demented dimension-traveling scientist at a mobile store this month.

The traveling pop-up shop will be at Chandler’s Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, 4955 S. Arizona Ave., on Saturday, Aug. 26. Fans can snag limited-edition and collectible show merchandise from 6 to 9 p.m.

The show has spawned a devoted following — one that may even have the power to bring back McDonald’s Szechuan sauce.

Enthusiasts of the Adult Swim show on Cartoon Network can also snap photos with their favorite animated sociopath.

The “Don’t Even Trip Road Trip” promotional tour left from Atlanta on May 11, a month after Adult Swim surprised fans with the show’s unannounced Season Three premiere. 

The Rickmobile also will stop at yet-to-be announced locations in Tucson on Friday, Aug. 25, and Flagstaff on Sunday, Aug. 27. Fans can follow the Rickmobile’s travels on Twitter and Instagram

The Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon-created series follows scientist Rick Sanchez and his grandchildren as they “boldly go where no sane person would ever consider.” 

“Rick and Morty” premiered in 2013 and recently returned this year after a two-year delay between its second and third seasons.

Harmon took to Twitter in June to explain the wait, chalking it up to “a common yet odd phenomenon” that includes perfectionism and possibly overthinking in the writer’s room.

New episodes of “Rick and Morty” air on Cartoon Network on Sunday evenings. Previous episodes are available to stream on Hulu.
