Animal Crossing fans are obsessed with their new Froggy chair

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is getting a ton of new content next month, but the addition that has most people talking about isn’t the big DLC ​​expansion, Gyroids, cooking, or even Brewster and the Roost. It’s the return of the Froggy Chair.

Froggy Chair was the center of late 2019 memes that took over the Animal Crossing fandom before the launch of New Horizons in March 2020. It started when Tumblr user garbuge posted a meme that featured the Froggy Chair and its price tag of 1,440 bells, with the MCU’s Thanos underneath, saying, “A small price to pay for the froggy chair.” The meme is a play with the Thanos quote, “a small price to pay for salvation.”

The original meme of garbuge on Tumblr as of November 12, 2019.

Soon after, the meme made another appearance on Reddit, when user Sebastian_Kackmann posted another Froggy Chair / Thanos crossover on the Animal Crossing subreddit.

When New Horizons marketing accelerated, so did the meme. Every Animal Crossing press release was awash with frog emojis and references to the Froggy chair. Twitter he also got hold of the trend and didn’t let go of it.

Then after all the fuss, the unthinkable happened: Froggy Chair wasn’t in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. The chair had been part of every main line animal crossing until New Horizons, appearing the entries of the franchise in GameCube, DS, Wii and 3DS.
