2001: A Nap Odyssey is a Regular Show short. It aired on September 23, 2016. This is the first short to take place in the new setting of space.


The guys take a nap in zero gravity.


The short starts with a scene of everything in the house floating (due to the artificial gravity being turned off). Then, it cuts to the inside of the fridge, where Mordecai grabs some milk. Then, it cuts to Rigby, grabbing cereal.

They try to "combine" them, but because the artificial gravity is off, they fail. But that doesn't stop them from eating it anyway. Then, Rigby grabs a cheese can and sprays it, with the force pushing him into the wall.

Then, it cuts to Benson waking up. Then, there is a huge period going back and forth, going to Mordecai and Rigby having fun, and then to Benson, who is trying to turn the artificial gravity back on.

Benson finally turns the gravity back on, and everything goes back to normal. Then, Benson tramples downstairs and tells Mordecai and Rigby that if they turn the artificial gravity off again, they're fired. Once Benson leaves, Mordecai and Rigby reluctantly agree to do the same thing again tomorrow.



  • Mordecai and Rigby grab the cereal and milk just like they did in the pilot episode/First Day.
  • This short and it's title are a parody of the film 2001: A Space Odyssey.
  • There is a Terminator parody when Rigby says "Hasta la cheesea, baby".
  • The park dome is revealed to have Artificial Gravity Controls.
