Badgers (animation)

Badgers is a Flash cartoon by British animator Jonti "Weebl" Picking. It consists of 12 animated cartoon badgers doing calisthenics, a toadstool in front of a tree, and a snake in the desert. Accompanied by electronic dance music, a voice repeats the word "badger" over the animation, breaking off to say either "mushroom" or "snake, it's a snake".

The cartoon, published 2 September 2003, loops indefinitely. The first two badger scenes contain twelve badgers; subsequent badger scenes contain eleven badgers. After a long running time, the song becomes out of sync with the animation.

The cartoon brought Picking to the attention of MTV Europe, for whom Picking produced Weebl and Bob. That cartoon series, together with the dancing badgers, helped Picking's website Weebl's Stuff win a People's Choice award from users of Yahoo! in the UK. "Badger Badger Badger" was also listed as one of the top five internet fads of all time by PC World in 2009.
