If you grew up int he 90s or the early 2000s, then you probably know who this dancing banana is supposed to represent — it’s the banana from the Peanut Butter Jelly Time song (if you’re not sure what this is, spare yourself the headache that the energetic song tends to cause and don’t Google it). The dancing, animated banana is created without the use of JavaScript.
