While Mordecai and Rigby are not the best in moral character and quality life values, they both have something that most people do not have, a genuine friendship!
“The Regular Show’s” Mordecai and Rigby, the cool headed blue jay-bird and the lazy but funny and cool when he wants to be Rigby, are the best of friends I have ever seen in cartoons, and I’ve watched a ton!
All too often we look at cartoons for its entertainment factor, but, if you think about it there are some mini-truths that are mixed within shows like “Regular Show.”
We learn from Mordecai and Rigby’s friendship that no one, and I mean, NO ONE, is perfect in a relationship. But we also learn that their friendship is a key dynamic!
Often we have seen these two get personal with each other, but always have each other’s back.
Often we have seen these two get in tons of trouble, but when push comes to shove, Mordecai always has Rigby’s back and Rigby always has Mordecai’s back!
Both of these characters are always “ranking” on each other, but hey, isn’t that what friends do!? Both can playfully egg on each other without the other being offended.
They know each other like a book!
I have at least a few friends I can count up that are the same way with me!
They tell me when I’m right and tell me when I’m wrong (which isn’t a problem because I’m always right……….just kidding).
They kick me in the butt when I start feeling sorry for myself!
They even pick on me for the most ridiculous things I do (and for what it’s worth, I would pick on me too)!
They know me enough to know what I want to hear but tell me what I NEED to hear!
Our friendship is so deep, it’s like Mordecai said in one episode, “you’re like my brother!”
Proverbs 18:24 says “a man that has friends must show himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticks closer than a brother.”
