The Classic Video Badgers is Now 20 Years Old

Back in 2003, there was no YouTube, no social media, and no Neatorama (yet). But on September 2, we got a flash animation called Badgers that went so viral it could be used to identify who was on the internet and who wasn’t. You could say “Badgers badgers badgers badgers,” and if anyone replied with “Mushroom, mushroom,” you knew that you had found a kindred spirit. Badgers was made by Mr. Weebl, also known as Jonti Picking. In 2013, he partnered with Brian May to produce a new version called Save The Badger Badger Badger to protest a badger cull in Britain, which became a bona-fide musical hit just in time for the 10th anniversary of the orginal video.

For the 20th anniversary of Badgers, Picking makes an attempt to give us a new “live action” version, using CGI and motion capture, which is difficult because the original dancers are getting old. But then he is accused of plagiarism. That brings up the question: how far back do dancing badgers really go?
