The origin of this pairing could possibly come for the episode "The Wacky Molestation Adventure." Where they run an auto repair business, with Butters being the mechanic.
In "Hooked on Monkey Fonics" Craig and Butters bully Mark Cotswolds together throughout the episode.
In "Let Go, Let Gov" Butters prays for Craig's well-being alongside other people close to him and in the same episode convinces Craig to confess his sins and attend meetings at the Colorado Department of Motor Vehicles.
Craig seemed concerned for Butters when he caused an allergic reaction to himself in "Obama Wins!" and again in "Going Native" when Butters was excessively angry. Butters showed concern for Craig in "The Magic Bush" when when Cartman posted videos of Craig's mother on the internet.
According to the official Twitter, Buttters is now considered part of Craig's friend group.
