Google Celebrates Popeye’s Creator

You may have noticed this Google doodle of Popeye today. ecsegar09

It’s in celebration of Popeye’s creator E.C. Segar’s birthday (born 115 years ago).

I’ts interesting to think about the endurance and cultural impact of this character and series.

Personally my favorite part of Popeye is Olive Oyl. I love her goofiness and the fact that she’s such an non-traditional femme fatale.

That’s my point of view. What’s your twist?

Sesame Street Turns 40, and Google Celebrates

googlebirdThis image caught my eye this morning.

I love it.

And I love that it’s not over-explained.

The cropping and the subtly just draw you right in.

I did a little Googling (I’m sure that was their intention) and here’s the scoop.

It’s in celebration of the 40th anniversary of the Sesame Street Workshop which produces Sesame Street.

You can check out these classic videos on the Huffington Post.

I love the Big Bird legs. They are so iconic.

But I have to say Snuffy is my favorite character.

That’s my point of view. What’s your twist?

Who would you have picked from Sesame Street for the Google Banner?
