- “Tiny Rick!”
- —Tiny Rick's catchphrase[src]
Tiny Rick is a younger version of Rick created through Operation Phoenix in the episode "Big Trouble In Little Sanchez". By transferring his consciousness into the brain of a younger clone, Rick is able to attend Harry Herpson High School, along with Morty and Summer, in an effort to help catch a vampire within their school.
Tiny Rick is initially similar to older Rick, albeit more optimistic and cheerful. His down-to-earth style impresses the other students of the high school and he becomes very popular. Over time, however, the teenaged brain, who does not want the older consciousness to transfer back into his original body, starts to dominate Tiny Rick’s personality. Rick’s older consciousness fights against the younger brain by turning his cries for help into expressions of creativity, such as a drawing called “Help Me, Morty And Summer!” and two versions of an original song.
Tiny Rick attempts to destroy his older body but is stopped by Morty and Summer. Using an Elliott Smith song, Summer is able to get through to the older Rick, and he walks them through on how to transfer his mind back to his original body.
Tiny Rick's mangled body was later left morbidly wounded by Rick after he brutally punctured its head with the blade of an axe.
