Don’t Watch This ‘Rick And Morty’ Thanksgiving Video Unless You’re Ready To Cry A Little

Rick and Morty season 4 may not happen for quite a while, but one glass-half-full aspect of that is all the fun little videos Adult Swim keeps pumping out during the downtime. Now the trend continues with another heartfelt Thanksgiving look into the life of Mr. Poopybutthole, who we last saw wrapping up season three with a list of things he managed to accomplish since season two ended: he went back to school to get his GED, got married, and had a baby!

That was half a joke on how long it took for the show to return, and half a challenge to the complainers out there to do something worthwhile with their own time (preferably something other than harassing the show’s staff). This time they’re going the show not tell route to chronicle Mr. Poopybutthole’s life adventures, and fair warning: the video above may touch you in places you probably never expected a Rick and Morty clip to touch.

We don’t want to ruin any of the more heart-tugging scenes from his ‘The Poop In My Pants’ photo album, but we did notice some details we’re sure you’ll appreciate:

There’s some sort of stub attached to one photo that lists the dimension as Earth C-137, which may debunk the theory that Mr. Poopybutthole’s debut appearance occurred in an alternate dimension to the rest of Rick and Morty. But wait! Is that some sort of travel voucher? Did Mr. Poopybutthole travel to C-137 to start his life after Beth shot him?

From there you can see Mr. and Mrs. Poopybutthole going through many of the same adventures we saw in season 3 of Rick and Morty. They participate in the Earth uprising against the Galactic Federation in ‘The Rickshank Rickdemption.’

In the background you can see the helicopter from the ‘Pickle Rick’ episode…

…and it looks like Mr. and Mrs. Poopybutthole went through the worldwide toxic phenomena unleashed in ‘Rest and Ricklaxation.’

They’re also still in touch with the Smiths … or at least some of the Smiths. Summer sent the Poopybuttholes a card to congratulate them on their pregnancy.

There’s even more Easter eggs hidden throughout the video but we’ll let you discover them … if you can make it through that one particularly sad moment in the middle. Now excuse me while I go hug my loved ones.
