Badger, Badger, Badger…

Badger Badger Badger is a Flash cartoon created by Jonti Picking in 2003.

It consists of images of badgers jumping up and down, combined with the odd picture of a toadstool and a snake. Add a strange (and strangely catchy) tune and you’ve got an instant Internet hit.
The site where Badger Badger first appeared also features other Flash animations created by Jonti "Weebl" Picking including the popular Weebl and Bob series.

Interesting Fact: amongst the many parodies of Badger, Badger, Badger, the most controversial was actually made by PETA (the organisation promoting the ethical treatment of animals). PETA basically ripped off the Badger animation, using it to promote their organisation. This immediately created a huge outcry from the internet and the video was quickly taken down.
