Smurf Blue Cat vs Strawberry Elephant Meme Explained
The Smurf Blue Cat meme is an animated image of a blue cat with a head shaped like a mushroom, seen walking in the forest while carrying a stick with a snail attached to one end.
The meme was also known as “Blue Mushroom Cat.” created first by an artist named Nate Hallinan in 2014 and made a comeback in 2023 after being reshared by other TikTok users.
While the meme surrounding the Smurf Cat doesn’t trace its roots to a specific incident or event, she seems to be revered for her rather unique appearance and clothing. Some users have assigned different colors to the animated image to create their versions.
Similarly, the Strawberry Elephant meme, also known as Arabic Strawberry Elephant, features an animated image of an elephant resembling a strawberry walking around in a field. The viral image was reportedly part of a Photoshop contest in the early 2020s and was shared using the Arabic phrase “strawberry morning.”
The not-so-old meme, which was shared on TikTok a day ago in combination with a new caption, has been viewed over 1 million times.
Pineapple owl is a novelty in the 2023 trend
