The Screaming Sun is a minor anthropomorphic character of a star that continuously produces a loud yelling noise while orbiting around a newly discovered planet in the second season finale of Adult Swim’s animated TV series Rick and Morty. Following the airing of the episode in early October 2015, fans of the show created numerous remix videos and photoshops featuring the screaming sun.


On October 4th, 2015, Adult Swim aired the Rick and Morty episode "The Wedding Squanchers" as the finale for the show's second season. In the episode, the character Rick attempts to flee imprisonment for crimes against the Galactic Federation by hiding with his family on a planet outside of their jurisdiction. After discovering what appears to be the ideal planet, a sun with a face rises which screams constantly while in orbit. The following day, YouTuber Forrest Keel uploaded a clip of the screaming sun (shown below)
