Our second #30YearsofGIFs post introduces the ‘Dancing Banana’. This little yellow fellow was another Internet GIF pioneer. Appearing in the early 2000s, this fruit derived from a cult Flash video “Peanut Butter Jelly Time” made by Ryan Gancenia Etrata and Kevin Flynn (with the song “Peanut Butter Jelly Time” by The Buckwheat Boyz). Just like the Dancing Baby, the banana achieved celebrity status, appearing in a 2005 episode of Family Guy.
The Dancing Banana became so well-known that some forum owners set the word banana to show a dancing banana emoticon GIF.

If my bananas were this rubbery, I’d be concerned. If brown spots and spiders weren’t enough to worry about in the world of the yellow gun-shaped fruit.

Just started my second week off work. Decided to go out for a haircut then a quick trip to the Tesco Express at the Greengate junction to do the weekly food shop. Once I got to the self-service till, all hell broke loose. First I discovered one item was split open , so had to run off to get a replacement. I came back to realise stupidly that I’d left my wallet on the till unattended. Whoops!. Then one of the shopping bags broke at the handle, so I had to buy a couple more, cos lots of shopping… Then the 50 pence piece I put into the machine jammed and the staff nearly forgot to give me the change from the bags. Thanks God I’m home now

I arrived in the office this morning to find an orange on my desk, very similar to the one in this GIF. My friend and deskmate Sandra had some oranges she was trying to offload from home, and hence the arrival of my new Vitamin C-rich companion.
