What's the Matter, Little Fella? refers to a series of two-panel exploitables featuring the video game character Cuphead. In the meme, Cuphead, or character standing in for Cuphead, asks "What's the matter, little fella?" before answering the question with something antagonistic, similar to What's Wrong, Big Boy?
