The following is a list of creepypasta that falls under the genre of "Lost Episodes". Typically, a "Lost Episode"-style Creepypasta is written as an anecdote by the author about an unaired or missing episode of a television show they unintentionally found- catching it late at night during its first and only airing, finding it on an old VHS tape, or even being part of the production crew or studio that aired the show. The show itself can be real or fictitious, and are typically animated and/or aimed at child audiences. The episode described is almost always crude/low-budget in appearance and disturbing in nature, deviating heavily in tone and subject matter from the original show. Themes of death, murder, torture, suicide, depression and other macabre topics are common. If the show is animated or made with puppets, they are often described as either being low-quality or "hyper-realistic" (a vague and rather over-used term that typically implies that the characters/events are somehow "real", or just way more detailed than a typical TV show budget would allow).

Sometimes entire seasons or whole shows can be "lost", along with commercials, infomercials, and made-for-TV movies. Any evidence beyond the author's words has either been destroyed, hidden, or hadn't existed at all (implying the episode was created by supernatural means).

In recent times, these pastas have been considered somewhat cliche, and have fallen out of fashion on sites such as /x/. Please note that the wiki no longer accepts lost episode pastas, as per our blacklisted subjects.
