We were really surprised to see that today’s Google doodle did not honor author Ray Bradbury, who passed away this morning. Oh sure, we’re sure that they put a lot of time into the Google doodle that they had lined up for today – the Google Drive-In Theatre Doodle – what with how it included video and all. But still, it’s Ray Bradbury!

For those of you who saw today’s Google doodle and didn’t realize what it was – well, first, here’s the initial Google doodle:

If you clicked on it, and went to the full-size doodle, you would see this, with the little sideways white triangle that has become the universal symbol for “play”:

And upon clicking that white triangle arrow, you would see a little video (very cute, well-executed) that represents going to the drive-in movies:

The last frame is a bucket of movie popcorn:

And when you click on the popcorn, it takes you to the Google search results for “opening of the first drive-in theater”.

Like we said, cute.

But we still think they should have honored Ray Bradbury.

Then again, perhaps honoring the author of “Something Wicked This Way Comes” was a little too ironic for Google.
