Mr. Poopy-Butthole is a long time family friend of the Smith's in Rick and Morty. Has there been any explanation of how he met them?

Unknown.

According to his Wikia page:

Mr. Poopybutthole is a long-time family friend of the Smiths. Rick clearly considers him to have long been a dependable person, although it's uncertain how long they've known each other. [...] Mr. Poopybutthole is a very good friend to the Smiths, and although his exact relation to them is unknown, he is described as a long-time friend of the family.

There is a theory that he never really existed, or was never a close friend of the family, and just a false memory implanted by the parasitic aliens. But this theory has been debunked in an interview with Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland, who confirmed that Mr Poopybutthole was real.

    Mr. Poopybutthole is real though, he got shot and didn't turn into a parasite. And then he wen't through rehab therapy to learn to walk again, and well... now I'm just sad for him :( – user20155 Nov 22 '15 at 11:47
  • @LegoStormtroopr Yes, he's definitely real. I just mentioned that theory and its debunking in case you (or anyone else reading) might be a proponent of it :-) – Rand al'Thor Nov 22 '15 at 11:49

    Rick and Morty is a story set in multiverse. Mr. Poopybutthole is real, but nobody ever told that he's from the dimension C-137. Therefore most probable theory is that S02E04 happened in some alternate universe. – oski86 Nov 22 '15 at 17:46
  • That theory you linked has this comment: "Mr. Poopybutthole's origin episode, it's one of the S1 BluRay Easter Eggs." Am I correct in assuming that person was a troll? – kaine Dec 1 '16 at 19:32

    @oski86 I believe they confirmed that multiple episodes in season 2 did not follow our normal Rick and Morty pair. – JMac Aug 1 '17 at 11:58
