Pictures: the 20 best Google doodles

From Dilbert to a playable Pac-Man

Everything from Dilbert to Pac-Man has shown up in Google's legendary doodles. Here are a few of the most notable throughout the years.

White logo - First appeared April 2010

Google's colourless doodle is like a flag at half-mast - a sign of mourning. This doodle first appeared on the Google Poland homepage in April 2010, mourning the death of President Lech Kaczynski.

Pac-Man - May 21, 2010

This doodle, designed to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the classic arcade game Pac-Man, was fully interactive and playable. That's right: Visitors could play Pac-Man on the Google search page - all 255 levels, in fact. Naturally, once workers discovered this little toy, productivity plummeted as offices across the nation were filled with 'waka-waka-waka'. If you missed it, don't worry: You can still play Google's Pac-Man.
