Google Celebrates Anniversaries For Sesame Street, Wallace & Gromit & Many Others

So when I visited Google.com, I saw Big Bird's legs. It is the 40th anniversary of Sesame Street and Google made a Doodle for it. But then I noticed other Google properties not only sporting Sesame Street but also Doodles for other learning programs that are popular in those regions. We have Google logos for the 20th birthday of Wallace & Gromit, and these other regional characters: Abigal, Boombah Chamki, Ieniemienie, Abelardo Montoya and Kami.

Here are the logos:

Big Bird's Sesame Street found at Google.com, Google.ca, Google.es, Google.hr, Google.co.kr, Google.co.jp, Google.com.ly, Google.fr, Google.com.ph, Google.com.qa, Google.pl, Google.com.bh, Google.com.hk, Google.com.kw, Google.ps, Google.com.sa, Google.ae, Google.com.eg, Google.co.id, Google.jo, Google.com.lb, and Google.com.om.

Wow, great list, and fun to see. Thanks! (I wouldn't have known myself, in Canada, but I'd seen a tweet earlier about Wallace & Gromit from the UK, so it was fun to lookup other countries' logos. Intriguing country choices and colours, though they mostly seem taken from the characters themselves. I especially like the last logo, Google with chicken pox :p

Now they are exactly the sort of positive/happy/fun logos that we need :) I do not understand why people would prefer logos about wars...

I didn't know about the other logos. That's really cool, and seeing these just makes my day better. Long live Sesame Street :)

Over in the UK we had the Wallace and Gromit logo yesterday (4th Nov) whilst today we have the Cookie Monster: http://www.webmarketingadvisor.com/SEO-blog/ Pleasent surprise as I was expecting something Guy Fawkes related being the 5th November.
