title says it all

The Dancing Banana (also known as Peanut Butter Jelly, or Humba the Banana) is a popular emoticon. By late 2001, the banana was already being used on several forums as a standard emoticon. Most of these forums would replace the typed text ":banana:" with the graphical image. As the popularity of the banana grew, hundreds of variations of the image had been created for forums or other purposes. These new images typically would have to be either uploaded or linked to, instead of replacing text. There is also a dancing pickle, muffin, carrot, apple, onion, taco, broccoli, Sonic the Hedgehog, Yoshi, Mario, Luigi, Mega Man, and Coach Z, among many others. The Dancing Banana soon made its way to television shows and began to appear as an icon in pop culture.

[edit] Peanut Butter Jelly Time
"Peanut Butter Jelly Time" was a Flash animation that emerged in the early 2000s and became an Internet phenomenon.[1] Based upon a song of the same name recorded by the DJ Chipman of the Buckwheat Boyz, the best known version of the animation (usually distributed as a Flash clip) shows a highly pixelated animated Dancing Banana moving back and forth to the song's repetitive chorus. In some versions of the animation, the song's lyrics are displayed on screen.
