Rick and morty Writer Jeff Loveness opened up about the inspiration behind Mr. Poopybutthole’s heartbreaking speech in the Season 5 finale.
Based on a short film parody Back to the future, the wacky comic book comedy follows cranky mad scientist Rick Sanchez and his anxious but kind grandson Morty Smith, as they embark on a bunch of interdimensional time adventures.
The Adult Swim animation, created by Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland, aired its most recent episode in September. In his post-credits scene, the recently divorced Mr. Poopybutthole opened up about how the episode allowed Morty to learn more about Rick’s complicated past and openly considered what to do when realizing who was really their loved ones.

He went on to explain that people generally don’t have as much time as they thought, which left the series on a bittersweet note, according to fans. Now, Loveness has explained how – and why – that moment came …
âI remember specifically writing Mr. Poopybutthole’s monologue on my back, feelingâ¦ not at my best,â Loveness recalls in a behind-the-scenes featurette on the Fifth Chapter Blu-ray. âYou could tell I was going through a rough time, maybe putting some of my failures in her voice.

âI just remember being on the couch during confinement, carrying my soul through Mr. Poopybutthole’s voice, and I just remember thinking, ‘Yes. You did. You wrote. something real. ‘”
Just a few weeks ago, Adult Swim confirmed that the show will be back in 2022 – which hopefully means more laughs and potentially devastating thoughts on life and loss are on the way.
