Year: 2009
Hipster Kitty kicked off the hipster image meme trend in 2009, which lead to Hipster Ariel, created by a blogger in February 2011 and posted to Tumblr. From there, the series spread to Reddit, Buzzfeed, Memebase and meme generator sites and was featured by Time, New York Magazine and Urlesque. The meme inspired hipster images for a number of other Disney characters.
