Remember back in the late 80’s there was “Where’s Waldo?”. “Where’s Waldo?” originated as “Where’s Wally” books. Each book contained several scenes and Wally or Waldo was hidden in them. I would spend time with my kids trying to locate Waldo on the pages. There were probably other hidden objects too, but they weren’t as fun to find as Waldo.
Well, recently it seems in a similar fashion, there was a puzzle created with “Spot the Panda” that turned the social media totally upside down. See if you can “Spot the Panda” before reading below.
Here’s the story from Daily Mail:
An illustration featuring a hidden panda has left thousands of people flummoxed as it sweeps social media.
Hungarian artist Gergely Dudás posted the Christmas puzzle on his Facebook page on 16 December, showing hundreds of hand-drawn snowmen with the single black and white bear hidden between them.
He told his 13,000 Facebook followers: ‘There’s a panda amongst them! Can you find it?’
The Where’s Wally-style cartoon was liked by 42,000 people and shared 100,000 times within days, with many struggling to find the panda at all.
The illustrator planted a few red herrings such as colourful scarves and hats, and the snowmen’s facial features, made from coal, also make it difficult to spot the panda’s black-rimmed eyes.
The panda is actually hidden on the eighth row from the top, fourth from the right.
More than 12,000 people have commented on the image in just six days, with hundreds sharing their frustration at not being able to find it.
Gergely told i100: ‘The popularity of the ‘panda’ picture amazed me, I still can’t believe it, but it makes me really happy! Glad to see how people like something I made.’

I don’t know about you, but I don’t understand why 1) so many people couldn’t find the panda and 2) so many people took so long to find the panda. They obviously weren’t around during the days of”Where’s Waldo?” Must be that “new” curriculum. Nice work, Mr. Gergely Dudás! Merry Christmas!
