Vijay’s classic GIFs 2007-2011 – 366

 

 

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?

You know life is good when your posh weedy cousin gets hijacked by some retro video game characters.

#30YearsofGIFs – 7

 

Lovable Pikachu, the yellow star of the anime series Pokémon, first made his appearance in 1996 in a Nintendo Game Boy game and arrived on TV a year later. A generation of people made Pokemon GIFs to put on their sites and really show they caught them all!. Unlike many things from the heyday of GIFs, Pokémon are still going strong, as last year’s Pokémon Go craze can attest.

Different versions of the ‘Under Construction’ GIF, such as the one featured above were popular on the early Net. For home-based website creators especially, these GIFs were a way of showing they were hard at work building their sites, just like at a construction site. Many of the GIFs were based off of US road signage. Sadly, after the demise of Web 1.0 in the first few years of the 21st century, the under construction GIFs that frequented the likes of Geocities went the way of the floppy disk, surviving now in only legacy sites and GIF collections.
