Ok, maybe this has been talked about before, so let me know if it is old news.

Just did a search for a popular childrens tv character. At the top of the SERP was two images before the normal results. These are the top 2 images for the image search.

Is this a new development?

I don't know how often Rugles, but quite a few people have seen images in normal search results over the last few weeks.

Presumably they are still user testing, or they just want to serve images now and again to remind people that the image search is there.

I have found two searches that produce the images at the top of the serps. One is a beer guzzling nuclear technician from Springfield. The other is a sometimes spanish speaking girl who likes to explore.
You have to have young children to know that second one.

I can't see it on a search for Bart's dad. Which datacentre is showing the images?

Haven't got a clue who the spanish speaking girl is. Is that some American cartoon?

Yes an American cartoon, actually they both are.

I ran through a whole bunch of cartoon characters last night and I only found two that could produce this kind of thing.
