Regular Show Wiki

"Sleep Cycle" is the eleventh episode of Season Seven (and one hundred and ninety second overall) of Regular Show. It first aired on November 10, 2015.


Mordecai and Rigby watch movies for two whole nights, throwing off their sleep cycles. 


Mordecai and Rigby decide to start their weekend by watching, "Morales and MacCreedy" movie marathons from 11 at night to 7 in the morning on TV28. After watching all three nights of the marathon, Mordecai and Rigby head upstairs to get sleep, but it turns out to be morning already and Benson takes them to the morning meeting. They however are unable to stay awake and pass out on the porch, until Benson finds them at 6 pm, furious for not completing their chores. They try to sleep, but are unable to do so as they already slept throughout the day. The next day is similar, with them unable to stay awake even with the help of coffee. Muscle Man hooks them up with some strong coffee but this results in them having an energy rush and are thus unable to fall asleep at night. They go to Skips for help, who in turn goes to Gary. Gary takes them to some place where the two can fix their sleep cycles. Over there, Rigby mocks an owl called KoKo because of his seemingly funny name, angering him in the process. To fix their sleep cycles, they must engage in a race along a track filled with traps, culminating in them catching the sun if they want to fix themselves, else they will remain a night owl for the rest of their lives. When they start racing, some powerups help them cross obstacles, however KoKo throws in a bomb to exact revenge on them for mocking his name. Mordecai however is able to save Rigby and complete the race, finally fixing their sleep cycles. They go back home and see that the new season of Morales and MacCreedy, this time starring their kid, is starting, to which they proclaim "All Nighter!" once again. However, Skips, not wanting the events of the episode to repeat, smashes the TV and yells at Mordecai and Rigby to go to sleep.
