While all those volumes of Where's Waldo books sit in a dusty cardboard box in your attic, the spirit of Waldo lives on in a remarkable bit of GIFage by Redditor Swiftapple. Waldo is alive and well. And bobbing.

The simple joy of spotting Waldo's red-and-white cap in motion instantly brought me back to the days of those oversized hardcovers. Perhaps this will foreshadow a new age of a digital Waldo. Just imagine every single person in a Waldo illustration moving and interacting. Utopia.
