In Gifville, the best place to get your eggs (Easter or breakfast) is from Seb the Eggman!
You wear extra chunky sweaters. You’ve never met a mitten you didn’t like. You may even keep a lap blanket at work.
You’re one of those people who is always cold. And you are not alone.

According to popular image-hosting site Imgur, this simple pixellated GIF of a commercial airliner is the world’s first, made by an unknown designer at Compuserve in 1987. Compuserve and rival Unisys originated the GIF format in the Eighties.
Our second ever self-made GIF by Gifville.
This features the CGI ident used by the ITV Schools educational programming initiative on Channel 4 in the UK. This was aired on the 14th September 1987, ITV Schools’ first day of broadcast.
I chose this to be ‘gifised’ for three reasons: the beauty of the graphics, the fact that this CGI was revolutionary for its time, and that in 1992, I would often see this graphic before my favourite morning kids’ shows when I was a boy of 7-8 years. Lovely memories.
