Today, Rick and Morty released an unexpected surprise: a special 2:21 minute Thanksgiving clip featuring Mr. Poopybutthole’s backstory. Even if you’ve already seen the backstory, there were likely some moments you missed that have answered some big fan questions about PB. But like everything in Rick and Morty, “The Poop in My Pants” special also left us with some new questions. Watch the clip again in the video above and then read on for screenshots and Easter eggs found in the Thanksgiving special.
Mr. Poopybutthole Is From Earth C-137
There’s been a lot of discussion from fans about whether PB was from C-137 or not. Well, this “MyFederation Rewards” card in his scrapbook finally gives us the answer. On the left side under the seal, it reads “Earth C-137.” Of course, there’s always a chance that they just visited C-137 and got a card from there. But remember, C-137 was Cronenberged. It’s likely that PB and his wife were living on C-137 and they followed Rick and Morty off C-137 when it was Cronenberged (or found their own way off.)
Also, seems Mrs. Poopybutthole might be smarter than her husband!
‘Rick and Morty’ Takes Place in the 2340s
If you look closely at the prescription that was written for Mrs. Poopybutthole when she was pregnant and had her sonogram, you’ll see that the date of the sonogram was 2345. So Rick and Morty is taking place in the 2340s.
Maybe Morty Was Just Helping PB with His Proposal Plans
In Morty’s Mind Blowers, we saw that one of Morty’s removed memories was of Mr. Poopybutthole proposing to him. But that scene was identical to the photo in his album.
So now it seems pretty possible that they were just practicing for PB’s real engagement and Morty was really getting into character. Maybe that by itself was enough for Rick to wipe this particular memory. Or maybe PB only has one proposal idea up his sleeve and he fell in love with Mrs. PB after Morty turned him down.
Did PB and His Wife Have Their Toxins Removed?
This is an interesting photo. They’re sitting in a photo booth and are completely normal, then they’re toxins for a couple seconds, and then normal again. It looks like PB and his wife were flash toxified, and had their negative toxins removed too. Maybe they did this on a vacation. If they had their toxins removed, maybe that’s why no one has any bad memories of them. I personally love this theory, but as other fans have pointed out, this might have been recording the brief moment when the entire world went toxic and then went back to normal.
Mr. Poopybutthole Is Jewish
If you were dying to know Mr. Poopybutthole’s religion, well now we do. A rabbi led their wedding ceremony. It looks like the Poopybuttholes are Jewish. (And apparently this is the same rabbi that we saw in “Show Me What You Got.”)
Oh, and according to their change of address form, his wife’s name is Mrs. Poopybutthole. So they may not have first names:
And who doesn’t love how tough it was for PB to carry her over the threshold?
Baby PBs Are Born with Hats
Poopybutthole’s baby already is wearing a hat in the sonogram, but you can also see that he’s born with the hat too. Apparently they can’t remove their hats. The hats are part of their anatomy from the very beginning!
Mrs. Poopybutthole Was Imitating Beyonce in the Pregnancy Photo
Mrs. PB is clearly a Beyonce fan, even all these years later. Her photo is a shoutout to Beyonce’s pregnancy photo.
More Screenshots & Easter Eggs
Do you see anything we missed?
PB and his wife went to Harry Herpson High School. This is the same high school that Morty and Summer are attending. But we know that PB got a GED, which we saw in the certificates he and his wife were holding in front of the high school. That means he never was in Morty or Summer’s classes. They likely took special GED classes on the weekends or at night.
It’s cute how they met. This had to be a GED class, since they’re later shown with their GED certificates showing they passed.
Their relationship flourished and they even studied together.
But they were more than eager to jump on the anti-Federation bandwagon once the Federation was taken down.
They certainly weren’t hearing “loser” in the wind like Jerry. (That helicopter above in the sky might be from Pickle Rick!)
The one above is interesting. Do you see what’s hiding in the bushes? It’s the same kind of alien that Jerry’s girlfriend was hunting in The ABCs of Beth.
Their pets were absolutely adorable. “Who rescued who?”
And they taught them to get along…sniff.
Ugh. This part was heartbreaking. I teared up. Did you?
In the photo above, it looks like Mrs. PB might have gotten the results of her pregnancy test on the same day their cat died. 🙁
It’s a boy!
I love how seeing his family gave him a boost. At the end of the special, PB can finally walk without his cane. He’s finally healing after all this time.
