Dancing Baby Cha Cha Trolly, Dancing Pickle MEME Dancing Banana Style, Santa Claus Xmas Troll, Opitcal Illusions

The "Dancing Baby," also called "Baby Cha-Cha," is a 3D-rendered animation of a baby dancing. It quickly became a media phenomenon, internet meme, and one of the first viral videos, in the late 1990s. Dancing Baby, also known as “Baby Cha-Cha,” is a viral video of a 3D-rendered baby dancing to the intro of “Hooked on a Feeling” by the Swedish rock band Blue Swede. Widely cited as one of the earliest examples of an Internet phenomenon, the Dancing Baby became globally popular via e-mail chains in 1996.  The original “cha-cha” dance file was developed by Michael Girard and Robert Lurye. It was released in Autumn 1996 as part of product sample source files included in Character Studio, a 3D character animation software. Ron Lussier, who was working for LucasArts at the time, tweaked the original file and shared it with coworkers via email, sparking the baby’s internet travels: I showed it to a few people and one of them asked me to forward it to them in e-mail. A week or so later I heard from fellow employees that the animation was traveling through the company via e-mail… then a bit later, I heard people say they had received it back again from people outside the company, across the country. From that it quickly traveled to the internet and became the strange phenomenon that it was. For more scoops on the history of Dancing Baby, check out Lussier’s Dancing Baby FAQ page.As illustrated in the chart, the meme’s popularity has been steadily declining in search queries throughout the 2000s. The term “Dancing Baby” peaked in both September 2009 and June 2010, but referred to viral YouTube videos of actual babies dancing. 

The 1st Dancing Pickle made its debut on +Wendy Williams  The Wendy Williams Show on November 14, 2011 which is#NationalPickleDay! Pickles have been a popular food for thousands of years. In 2030 B.C., cucumbers were imported from India to the Tigris Valley. There, they were first preserved and eaten as pickles.  In ancient Egypt, people consumed pickles for their nutritional value and because they were thought to enhance beauty. Cleopatra attributed her good looks to her full diet of pickles. Centuries later, Napoleon believed that pickles offered health benefits for his armies, so he offered a huge cash prize to anyone who was able to preserve them safely.

the phenakistoscope (also spelled phenakistiscope or phenakitiscope) was an early animation device that used the persistence of vision principle to create an illusion of motion history although the principle behind the phenakistoscope had been recognized by the greek mathematician euclid and later in experiments by newton it was not until 1829 that this idea became firmly established by belgian joseph plateau plateau planned it in 1839 and invented it in 1841 later the same year the austrian simon von stampfer invented the stroboscopic disk a similar machine a contemporary edition of britannica says "the phenakistoscope or magic discwas originally invented by dr roget and improved by m plateau at brussels and dr faraday"[1] technology the phenakistoscope used a spinning disc attached vertically to a handle arrayed around the disc's center were a series of drawings showing phases of the animation and cut through it were a series of equally spaced radial slits the user would spin the disc and look through the moving slits at the disc's reflection in a mirror the scanning of the slits across the reflected images kept them from simply blurring together so that the user would see a rapid succession of images that appeared to be a single moving picture a variant of it had two discs one with slits and one with pictures this was slightly more unwieldy but needed no mirror unlike the zoetrope and its successors the phenakistoscope could only practically be used by one person at a time
