Google launches a creative doodle in place of simply using the name “Google” when you open the search engine, every few weeks. It is an interactive feature and the first time Google started doing this was in the year 1998 and it was in commemoration of the Burning Man Festival. The Google team wanted to send out the message that the team was out of the office. Later on, in the year 2000, another doodle was produced in relevance to Bastille day and it was received with so much enthusiasm that since then Google has decorated its homepage with more than 2000 doodles. The purpose is not just to celebrate familiar international holidays but also events, anniversaries and things as simple as ice cream sundaes. This article will throw some light upon the top Google doodles ever.
10. Les Paul Doodle
The first doodle that we have on our list is the one that was in celebration of the life of a music icon by the name of Les Paul. The doodle was launched on the date when the star was born and had he still been alive, the day would have marked his 96th birthday. The Google doodle, in commemoration, was a ten string virtual guitar. Everyone who went onto the search engine could not only create tunes on that virtual guitar but could also save them.
9. Google’s Fifteenth Birthday Doodle
We know how Google keeps celebrating other people’s birthdays and keeps on commemorating other events and festivals. This next doodle on our list from Google was in celebration of the company’s own fifteenth birthday. As addictive as all other Google doodles are, this one was a major bomb. The doodle showed a fantastic picnic scenario and as per the records, users spent a lot of time fooling around with the merry production which was one of the most interactive ones ever.
8. Claude Debussy’s 151st Birthday Doodle
We come to yet another birthday celebration but this around it was the 151st of Calude Debussy! Where have you heard the name so recently you might ask- to which we proudly respond, refreshing your memory in the process, by mentioning Twilight in which Edward Cullen has Clair de lune playing the background as Bella Swan roams around his bedroom! The doodle showed a very engaging scenario, moonlight and all, as you appear to fly around Europe. It was magical as we are sure the users remember too.
7. Charlie Chaplin Doodle
The next doodle on our list of the best Google doodles is the one that was dedicated to Charlie Chaplin on his 122nd birthday. This doodle showed a guy who resembled Charlie Chaplin and the guy draws the Google doodle himself. It was an excellent tribute to the silent actor and was appreciated the world over.
6. John Lennon’s 70 years celebration doodle
We have another birthday and this one was of John Lennon’s had he been alive. Anyway, Google paid a tribute to the star of Beatles ( a group that itself was nothing shorts of a star) by making a doodle that was animated with a small clip of music by Lennon playing in the background. It was heart-warming and considerate, a beautiful gesture by Google for the dead star.
5. Jules Verne Google Doodle
We all know about the famous science fiction writer Jules Verne right? Well Google celebrated his 183rd birthday but dedicating its doodle to the famous book by Jules Verne titled “Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the sea”. The doodle showed an image that appeared to the viewers as an image from under the sea. It was an inspirational dedication that we are sure, inspired a lot of people to read the book if they hadn’t. The inspired lot included us too, luckily.
4. Pac Man Google Doodle
We next come to the doodle dedicated to the world famous game, Pac Man. The doodle was launched on the 22nd of May, 2010 which was the 30th birthday of the brilliant arcade game. The doodle won so much popularity that Google decided to dedicated a special permanent place to it. The doodle version of the amazing classic can be accessed here.
3. Erwin Schrodinger’s Birthday Doodle
We next have the doodle that Google dedicated to the physicist Erwin Schrodinger and as expected, the doodle was in reference to the experiment that the famous physicist is known for. The doodle depicted a living cat and a dead cat, both versions of the feline species that were present in the original experiment conducted by the guy. The doodle was ingenious and was loved by the entire population.
2. Franz Kafka Birthday Doodle
Next on our list of the best Google doodles we have Franz Kafka’s birthday doodle which was in celebration of the German guy’s 130th birthday. The doodle itself was very antique looking and depicted The Metamorphosis, one of the best works by the literary giant. The books talks about a salesman who get converted into a giant insect and that is exactly what the doodle showed. All the letters of the doodle seemed like they were tiny insect legs shaped into alphabets. Pretty brilliant we say although if you aren’t very fond of insects, you might not like it all that much.
1. Celebrating Earth Day via Google Doodle
Last but not the least, actually one of the most important and significant doodles, was the one that was in celebrations of earth day. The doodle was a beautiful scenario complete with the sun shining, the white puffy clouds, the green hills and the lustrous trees along the stream. The doodle was a reminder that our earth can be a beautiful place, a reflection of paradise, if we take time out to care for it! s
