The little video game star with the big appetite turns 33 today.

Today, we wish a happy 33rd birthday to a beloved video game character who would devour his cake–and its 33 candles–without hesitation: Pac-Man.

Pac-Man debuted in Japan on May 22, 1980 and has enjoyed ever-increasing popularity since then. Throughout the past three decades, the big-mouthed, bright yellow superstar has snagged himself a wife, fathered a child, and even starred in an animated television series.

Not bad for a guy who resembles a partially-eaten pizza and is utterly terrified of ghosts.

To commemorate Pac-Man’s 33rd straight year of bringing entertainment, high scores, and power pellets into our lives, we dug through Tumblr and unearthed 33 different Pac-Man GIFs.
