So Noob-Noob and Mr. Poopybutthole Are Related, Right?

So Noob-Noob and Mr. Poopybutthole Are Related, Right?

The MVP of “Vindicators 3: The Return of Worldender” was the heroic, put-upon intern Noob-Noob who bears a noteworthy resemblance to another lovable Rick and Morty figure. One who has, sadly, been missing in action this season. You read the headline, so you obviously know who we’re talking about.

Noob-Noob and Mr. Poopybutthole are almost definitely the same species.

Time for some game theory. I’ve added Mr. Poopybutthole to this image of Noob-Noob to really get the comparison cooking.

Similarities:

  • Oblong head
  • Round eyes
  • Nub teeth
  • Humanoid body and features
  • High-pitched Justin Roiland-y voice
  • Great sense of humor
  • Rick-centric catchphrase
  • Shops at same shoe store
  • No bad memories of either
  • They both get it

Easily-dismissed Differences That Don’t Fit My Theory:

  • Noob-Noob doesn’t have a nose
  • His eyes are askew
  • No hat

It’s perfectly plausible that Mr. Poopybutthole and Noob-Noob are from different cultures on the same planet. Or that Noob-Noob has a kind of facial deformity that makes him look like Sloth from The Goonies. Or that they’re related and look mildly different because cousins don’t look exactly the same.

If they are related (they are), it raises at least one big question about the naming customs of their society. “Noob-Noob” seems to be a first name where “Poopybutthole” is clearly a surname, so is Mr. Poopybutthole’s first name also hyphenated? Do you call strangers, acquaintances, and subordinates by their first name and call close friends with the formal Mister or Missus? After all, Rick barely knows Noob-Noob, and the Vindicators see him as beneath them, but Rick and Mr. Poopybutthole are intimate pals.

Could this long lost relative open the door to is seeing Mr. Poopybutthole again this season? Possibly. After all, they used the cane-wielding character to close out season 2 and warn us to look out for more. If we’re lucky, we’ll see Noob-Noob and Mr. P join forces, do some recruiting, and launch an entire Poopybutthole army. Oblong-headed warriors fighting alongside Rick as far as the eye can see.

And where does Stealy fit into all of this? Because he definitely does. Ooh wee, does he ever.
