WidepeepoHappy – Meaning & origin + 3 examples

Yet another Pepe the Frog emote has made its way across live-streaming platforms and is taking the internet by storm. This time, it’s “widepeepoHappy,” and people are using it all over Twitch to show off something, though the meaning isn’t originally clear without a bit of investigation. So, let’s look at what “widepeepoHappy” means and where it came from to understand it better and when to use it.

What Does “widepeepoHappy” Mean?

“WidepeepoHappy” means that someone is incredibly happy about something that happened during one of their favorite streamers’ live broadcasts. You can use it to show how much you enjoyed a particular part of a game, a joke, or the general conversation that the streamer is having with their chat.

It’s a wholesome way to show that you’re interested and entertained with the content that the streamer is providing for you. It’s almost always used to show happiness that you can’t measure in any other way. Though most other emotes featuring the face of Pepe the Frog are often used ironically, “widepeepoHappy” is too wholesome to warrant that.

The emote itself is a picture of Pepe the Frog’s face, with a happy smile to match it. The face has been stretched out to about twice the size and squished down to about a third of the original size. The result is a rather comical close-up of Pepe the Frog’s face, with a tongue dangling out of his smiling, wide mouth. That’s where the “widepeepo” comes into play in the emote name.

Another version of this emote is equally as stretched and squished as “widepeepoHappy.” It is instead “widepeepoSad” and features the crying face of Pepe the Frog. This one is used to showcase immense sadness while watching a stream instead of the blissful joy that “widepeepoHappy” shares.

What Is The Origin Of “widepeepoHappy?”

To get a glimpse of the origin of “widepeepoHappy,” we have to go all the way back to 2005. Pepe the Frog is a character from a 2005 comic called Boy’s Club by Matt Furie. Over the years, Pepe the Frog has become quite the iconic emote and meme on Twitch (and other websites around the internet). He is somewhat of a politicized meme that adds value wherever he goes.

“WidepeepoHappy” is an extension to the emote “peepoHappy”. Both of them feature the same smiling face of Pepe the Frog, but obviously, “peepoHappy” comes at the standard ratio with no stretching or squishing taking place. “WidepeepoHappy” was created as a way to make the meaning of “peepoHappy” more impactful, as people believed it didn’t encapture the true happiness they felt when they wanted to use “peepoHappy.”

The FrankerFaceZ collection added “widepeepoHappy” in the latter months of 2018. To access it, users need to have the FFZ browser add-on installed to see the emote when it is spammed. Without it, they’ll only see the word “widepeepoHappy” and not the stretched picture.

Why Has “widepeepoHappy” Become So Popular?

“WidepeepoHappy” is currently the 34th most popular FFZ emote on Twitch (as of 2021). It’s no surprise that it’s become this popular since everyone loves to use Pepe the Frog-related emotes whenever they get a chance. It allows them to use one of their favorite meme characters while also watching one of their favorite streamers.

On top of that, people appreciate the wholesomeness associated with “widepeepoHappy.” Since you can’t really use it ironically, it’s become more popular when people are genuinely happy or excited about something their favorite streamer did in a live stream. For this reason, more people started to use the emote when they got a chance, and it began to branch out to the smaller broadcasters on the platform.

It varies in popularity all the time, but it doesn’t ever stop being one of the most used emotes on Twitch as a whole.
