What do Punxsutawney Phil, Buckeye Chuck, Dunkirk Dave, and Woodstock Willie have in common? They are collectively responsible for disappointing hundreds of thousands of children every February 2nd. Yes, these are the names of some of the most famous groundhogs in the United States, and despite what recent history dictates I don't remember a single year in my youth when the groundhog – whichever groundhog my fellow students were hanging their homes on that day – did not see his shadow. Why couldn't we get a groundhog named Blind Barry? Seems that would have been the only way to get out of six more weeks of our less-than-mild Ohio winters. In any event, the groundhogs certainly don't agree by geography; in 2012, Phil saw his shadow but Chuck, Dave, and Willie did not. These kids today have it so easy. But whether you're doomed to six more weeks of winter or free to frolic in an early spring, whether you or your children are ardent observants of Groundhog Day or you just like the Bill Murray by the same name, I think you'll enjoy the following 10 awesome Groundhog Day designs. Groundhog Day by Montygog If you've never seen the movie “Groundhog Day,” many consider it a must-see; evidenced by all the artwork derived from the flick I found for this post. This calendar shows the state of Bill Murray's character, Phil Connors, every day of the month – in a world where every day is Groundhog Day. Groundhog Day by spiceystewed demon Another homage to the movie, this time a caricature of one of its most popular scenes – when Connors (Murray) and the groundhog (Punxsutawney Phil) go for a drive. Mr. Groundhog by stitchyEX626 A cool, fun, and friendly drawing of the groundhog searching for his shadow. Groundhog's Shadow by KerbisHead Ever wonder why the groundhog's shadow scares him back into his hole? After seeing this design, you know the answer. Groundhog Day by JoshiTheAngelYoshi A cartoonish movie poster that highlights a plot circling the groundhog's revenge. Groundhog Day by moyanll I love how the intricacies of the paint develops into the image we see. Chinese ink on rice paper. Groundhog by appleyard86 A bright, colorful, and friendly drawing – yet no less talented. Bloody Groundhog Day poster by tymime A poster for a fictional groundhog movie; the artist was inspired by an actual B movie poster for the “Bloody Brood.” Groundhog Day by 6amcrisis Another design from the groundhog driving scene, this time a facetious take that would make a perfect tee shirt. Groundhog Day by Circusdog And finally, a minimalist poster for the movie “Groundhog Day.”
