The Making of Google Halloween Doodle 2011 [2010 Inside Too]

Google celebrated Halloween yesterday with an amazing Halloween-time doodle. Instead of the normal photoshoping doodles, Google came up with a realistic doodle this year for Halloween. A bunch of 6 Google Doodlers teamed up together to carve the spelling of the internet giant, Google, on 6 big, giant pumpkins.


This doodle is actually a video. This video is embedded in the Google site and makes use of HTML5, that allows the users to play and pause the video, showing many creepy and funny scenes. It seems like those hard working doodlers, spent 6 hours carving this amazing doodle.

Let us now have a peep into the doodle if you have missed it.

To celebrate Halloween this year, the doodle team wanted to capture that fascinating transformation that takes place when carving a pumpkin. Instead of picking up a few pumpkins from the grocery store, however, we decided to work on six giant pumpkins, specially delivered from nearby Half Moon Bay (some weighing well over 1,000 pounds). What you see is a timelapse video of the approximately eight hours we spent carving in the middle of our Mountain View, Calif. campus.” quotes Sophia Foster-Dimino, a doodler, in Google’s official blog.

Back in 2010, Google celebrated Halloween with 5 Scooby-Doo themed doodles. The gang of 5, fighting the criminals to solve the mysteries, captured a place in Google’s heart and got baked into 5 doodles. Here are the five doodles that you might have missed.
