"That's It? That's the Lost Episode?" is a memorable quote by the character Patchy the Pirate from the animated series Spongebob Squarepants in which Patchy expresses his disillusionment over a Lost Episode, which was notoriously just a walk cycle. Online, the scene is typically used as an Image Macro to summarize a noteworthy event later turning out to be a letdown. The format is also known as That's It? That Was the Meme?.
The scene comes from the season 3 special of Spongebob SquarePants, "The Lost Episode." In the special, Patchy gets excited for the "lost episode" while "The Sponge Who Could Fly" airs. The "lost episode" is infamously a series of cheap walk cycle animations. The episode aired originally in the United States on March 21st, 2003. During the segment, Patchy illustrates his dismay at the cheap walk cycle animation that serves as the "lost episode" by shouting before having an emotional tantrum (hown below.)
- That's it? That's the lost episode?
- That was just a bunch of cheap walk cycles!
- What a rip!
- Grrrrr… Spongebob betrayed us!
The scene saw a significant use in memes during the Super Bowl LIII Halftime Show in 2019, in which fans of the show highly anticipated "Sweet Victory", a song by David Glen Eisley and Bob Kulick to play during the game's break. While a small portion was used, it was merely used as an opening for a live performance of Travis Scott's "Sicko Mode." Many fans angrily went on social media immediately after the letdown, and Reddit user musicaljerks posted "That's it?! That's the halftime show?!" with the screencap. As of 2021, the post scored 14,825 points (99% upvoted). (Shown below.)
The template would later see a resurgence on meme communities in the coming years, particularly on meme communities, like iFunny and Reddit.
