Kanye West has been offered his own episode on a popular animated sitcom.

The 41-year-old rapper has long professed his love for the hit show “Rick & Morty.” After Adult Swim confirmed the US show is returning for a fourth season in November, the creators Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland have said they are going to make it “official” and create a cartoon alter-ego for the “Famous” hitmaker.

Asked at WarnerMedia’s Upfronts presentation on Wednesday, May 15, 2019, if they will be casting West — who became a father for a fourth time last week to a son, who was born via surrogate — this season, Justin gushed “Ye is a f—— kindred spirit, genius, visionary. If that guy had the support to do all the ideas he has in his head, he’d be f—— Elon Musk 2.0.”

Dan added: “I’m giving him an episode. I’m making it official. We have 70, he can have one. Kanye, you can have one.”

If he does get to make his cameo, he would follow in the footsteps of the likes of Susan Sarandon, Jordan Peele and Stephen Colbert in landing the gig.

West — who already has children North (5), Saint (3), and 15-month-old daughter Chicago with wife Kim Kardashian West — revealed last year that he has watched “every episode at least five times,” when expressing his excitement that the show was being renewed.

He tweeted: “This is the greatest news. This is my favorite show. I’ve seen every episode at least 5 times each (sic)”

Meanwhile Kardashian, 38, revealed to “Entertainment Tonight” that they “fight” over the remote control whenever the “Good Life” rapper wants to put “Rick & Morty” on the box.

“We just sit in bed at nighttime and watch ‘Family Feud’ or whatever… Or we fight because he wants to watch ‘Rick and Morty’ and I’m like, ‘Can we please watch, like, the ‘Long Island Medium?'”
