Darkwing Duck, after retiring from fighting crime in the 1990s, emigrates to Gifville for a new life. Once settled, the plucky ex-good guy reinvents himself as a master Guitar Hero player – competitive level. Who said heroes couldn’t be reborn?

#30YearsofGIFs – 8

 

In the earliest days of the net, GIFs and JPGs for different aspects of this brave new world often made reference to pre-existing technologies and objects. For example, the above GIF shows two letterboxes for email, a virtual reinterpretation of the traditional door flap for letters and parcels. This analogy helped people be more comfortable with the new technology by relating it to things they were already familiar with IRL.
