Web Nostalgia

This page will include a collection of .gifs I remember from the early web, in addition to links for where I found them.

Vivid Memories of Animated GIFs

This page will likely only appeal to a very narrow age bracket. My experience with the early web was browsing fan-sites for my favorite TV-shows at the time, Pokemon and Digimon - specifically around 2001-2002 which was the time Digimon Tamers was airing on Fox Kids. I very vividly remember searching and saving pages and pages of Pokemon and Digimon .gifs so I went looking for them again and found a good number of them along with some Kao-ani. So this page is a small trip down memory lane for me.
