How did Rick's first Morty die

"Simpsons" and "Rick and Morty" makers died

Three days before his 55th birthday, the four-time Emmy award winner J. Michael Mendel dies surprisingly. He was there when the "Simpsons" was founded.
The success run of the "Simpsons" began in 1987 on "The Tracey Ullman Show". Because what very few people know, even before Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie got their own half-hour primetime series in 1989, they were seen there in a series of about one to two-minute films.

Mendel was initially responsible as a production assistant and later as a producer of the first ten "Simpsons" seasons. He later developed the animated series "The PJs" with Eddie Murphy and worked on the Oscar-winning films "Big" (with Tom Hanks) and "Jerry Maguire" (with Tom Cruise). In 2009 he joined the team of the mad scientist and his grandson, "Rick and Morty". He won four Emmys for successful cartoon series, three for The Simpsons, one for Rick and Morty.

"Simpsons" writer Al Green recalls on Twitter the early days of Springfield together: "He was a great guy. My thoughts are with his family."
