Their association with Stampy started in 2015 when they invited him to be a guest in an episode of their daily morning show, Good Mythical Morning, where the duo were challenged in a Minecraft knowledge quiz set up by Stampy. Stampy was also featured in an episode of Ear Biscuits, where they discussed his career and the creative process that goes into his videos, his new show at the time, Wonder Quest, and how his love of gaming lead him into a real-life romance with Sqaishey Quack (who also appeared by the end of the podcast).
Rhett & Link collaborated again with Stampy in 2016 as they lent their voices to the characters Thomas Edison and William Hammer, respectively, in the second season of Wonder Quest (episode 22).
