Father’s Day 2017 Google doodle brings back the cactus family from Mother’s Day
Google's Father's Day doodle shares the same cactus-themed artwork that was used for its Mother's Day doodle in May.
To celebrate Father’s Day, today’s Google doodle revisits artwork from this year’s May 14 Mother’s Day doodle — only this, time it’s the cactus family’s dad taking care of his baby cacti.
Google’s Father’s Day doodle includes five panels, the first with only the father-figure cactus standing tall. Other images depict the dad-cactus doing his child’s hair, blowing a balloon back and forth, giving the kids a bath, and showing them how to shave.
The doodle leads to a search for “Father’s Day 2017” and includes the usual sharing icon. Currently, it’s being displayed on Google’s US home page, in addition to a number of its international pages, including the UK, Canada, Mexico, Argentina, Peru, the Netherlands, India, Japan and more.
In case you missed it, here’s Google’s Mother’s Day doodle to compare:
Some of the hardest-working dads I know are part of the Search Engine Land team, and I couldn’t be more proud to be their colleague. I wish them — and all the great dads out there — a very, happy Father’s Day!
