Peanut Butter Jelly Time



"Peanut Butter Jelly Time" is a Flash animation that emerged in the early 2000s and became an Internet phenomenon. Based upon a song of the same name recorded by the Buckwheat Boyz, the best known version of the animation (usually distributed as a Flash clip) shows a heavily pixelated animated Dancing Banana (itself a well-known emoticon) moving back and forth to the song's repetitive chorus. The original version was made by Ryan Gancenia Etrata and Kevin Flynn from a thread on OffTopic.com. In some versions of the animation, the song's lyrics are displayed on screen.
