The article text of The Rick is fine, but there are two problems with the name:

  1. The name is a bit obtuse. Things such as The Jor-El, The Scrappy, The Fonzie, etc. work because there's not that large a pool of well known characters with the names. Rick is really too common a name for that to work.
  2. Even ignoring the ambiguous commonality of the name, neither the character himself is all that relatively well known nor is that role what specifically comes to mind when he gets mentioned.

I would suggest renaming this Exposition Buddy, but it's up to everybody what would work best.
