I found the following in the office today, couldnt help but to take a picture of him!


Its my old mate Microsoft Clippy! I dont think hes making a comeback since he didnt have that many friends back in the day, but good to see hes still smiling and enjoying his retirement. Im sure he was thinking of saying "It looks like your taking a picture....Would you like help?"

I did a search on Microsoft Clippy and found a Microsoft Clippy game which is still up and running on the Microsoft Taiwan site! Give it a go.

I wonder where Peddy the parrot is hanging out?

And no Clippy assures us hes not making a comeback.

  • Ahh Clippy is cool. You can get a standalone Clippy from rjlsoftware.com (look in Entertainment).

  • You Could Program Clippy To Go On Your Desktop,

    Just Download DeskBot And CharPackage. With CharPackage You Click The "..." Box And Open

    Computer>Local Disk>Program Files>Microsoft Office>Office> And Double-Click Clippy.acs.

    Then On CharPackage Click "Build Package".

    Then Open My Computer And Open Local Disk>Program Files>Microsoft Office>Office> And Open The Clippy Setup File, Then When That Is Finished Click It Again And Wait To Finish, Then Open DeskBot And Click On The Characters Box And And Select Clippy And Click Select.

  • Hey! I have one of those Clippy costumes too! When I was working for Microsoft back in 1997, they gave every employee that worked for the Microsoft Office team would get a Life-Size Clippy costume. Mine is in it`s box in my office.
