This New Rick and Morty Short Will Actually Make You Cry

A Rick and Morty tearjerker? That’s unexpected. But we’re not kidding. New short “The Poop in My Pants,” starring fan-favorite Mr. Poopybutthole (longtime Smith family friend, gun-violence survivor, new father), would make even the emotionally impenetrable Rick Sanchez well up. Ooo-wee!

There’s... something in my eye. Who knew Mr. Poopybutthole was such an animal lover? That toilet-shaped piñata kind of gets everything back on the comedy track, but anyone who’s ever lost a beloved pet may need to take a moment after watching the short.


According to Mr. Poopybutthole himself in the season three finale, Rick and Morty season four will air “in like, a really long time... I might even have a big, white Santa Claus beard” on Adult Swim.

Hmmm...well everything seems to have some additional meaning. Why doesn’t he have anything in his scrapbook about the Sanchez family? Why was he living by himself last season, and now is living with a small family. Did he also pick up the parasite and acquire a fake parasite family? In that case, confirming that he is a real character, not a parasite in disguise.
