"The Donut of Shame" is a SpongeBob SquarePants episode from season five. In this episode, Patrick thinks he stole SpongeBob's doughnut and tries to hide it from SpongeBob.



The morning after SpongeBob's tea party, Patrick wakes up to see SpongeBob, who has a donut held in his hand. Since SpongeBob is knocked out, Patrick takes the donut. When he arrives home, he is just about to eat it when he remembers SpongeBob saying, "This kind of donut can really make a guy happy…". He then thinks he has stolen SpongeBob's donut.

His phone then rings, with SpongeBob on the other line. He says he will be right over to Patrick's house with a tape of the night before. After Patrick realises that the tape will show him taking SpongeBob's donut, he runs around his house, trying to hide it. SpongeBob comes over and Patrick admits to taking the donut, and then SpongeBob says it is all right for him to take the donut. He shows Patrick the tape that shows him giving the donut to him as a birthday present. Patrick then pulls the donut (although, nearly spoiled), splits it in half and asks SpongeBob if he wants to share. SpongeBob accepts as he eats the half donut, only to make him sick and Patrick says, "Pretty good, huh?" before the episode ends.

  • This is the third episode in which the main event happened inside Patrick's house (the first being I'm with Stupid and the second Rise and Shine).
  • When SpongeBob steps on the donut, jelly squirts out. However, when Patrick splits the donut, there is no jelly. When the jelly came out, Patrick was thinking it would happen, so perhaps the jelly was his imagination.
  • This is the first appearance of a donut. The next time will be Ghoul Fools.
  • On the intro title card, the classic Castle Thunder sound effects can be heard.
  • Patrick falling repeatedly from his "attic" is similar to him falling repeatedly from Mount Climb-up and Fall-off.
  • Patrick's donut will be appearing again in the DS version of Truth or Square.
  • When Patrick is talking to Angel Donut and Devil Donut he says, "I hate sprinkles!" but the donut is covered in sprinkles when he ate it.
  • There is a similarity to the Dexter's Laboratory episode, Backwards. Dexter eats a sandwich, but Dee Dee causes the machine to go into reverse, causing him to regurgitate his meal back into its unbitten, undigested form. Later on, Dad sees the sandwich and eats it. When he is seen again, he is sick from eating what was once in someone else's stomach. Likewise, Patrick swallows the donut, and retrieves it from his stomach, then shares it with SpongeBob, who becomes sick after eating his half.
  • This is the second episode to have sound effects on title cards, the first being "Karate Island".
  • This is the tenth episode where its title card is being animated, the ninth being "All That Glitters".
  • There is not a bubble transition between the opening credits and the start of the episode; instead, there is just a simple wipe to black.


  • When Patrick is outside, he has underpants on, but when goes into his rock, his pants are on.
  • When Patrick fell off from the "attic," SpongeBob would have seen him with the donut.
  • SpongeBob said he filmed the whole thing, but when he puts the videocassette in Patrick's VCR, it only plays from where SpongeBob wants Patrick to have the donut.
