Featured Episode


Skibidi Toilet Syndrome is a fake syndrome and slang term referring to the perceived negative effects that watching too much Skibidi Toilet has on children, supposedly causing them to act like Skibidi Toilets themselves. The term was coined in July 2023 by Indonesian web users and spread online after several videos went viral showing young children imitating Skibidi Toilet by popping out of containers and singing the Skibidi Dop Yes song. The syndrome inspired memes and some seemingly legitimate warnings from concerned parents online urging parents not to let their children watch the series despite it being a hoax.


In late June and throughout July 2023, several videos of young children acting like Skibidi Toilet from the Skibidi Toilet web series went viral online. For example, on June 29th, 2023, TikToker[1] @lulus4n_sd posted a video of their kid acting out Skibidi Toilet that gained over 20 million views in two months (shown below, left). On July 8th, TikToker[2] @blaugrana2212 posted a similar video that gained over 5.1 million views in a similar span of time (shown below, right).

The term "skibidi toilet syndrome," or "sindrom skibidi toilet" in Indonesian, began to spread following the upload.

For example, on that day, YouTuber[4] @ShaferPrasetyo commented under the video what translates to, "This Indonesian bocil toilet turns out to be a toilet parasite from skibidi verse which has caused the boy with skibidi toilet syndrome💀💀🗿" On July 12th, YouTuber[5] Hafidzzz 76 Gaming reuploaded the video, titling it, "These Children Have Skibidi Toilet Syndrome!"


On July 14th, 2023, Indonesian TikToker[6] @by.milja posted a video warning about the addictive qualities of Skibidi Toilet for children, garnering over 1.5 million views in a month (shown below, left). On July 15th, TikToker[7] @sattrupaitawong posted a video of a child acting like Skibidi Toilet, garnering over 2.3 million views in a month (shown below, right).
