I propose that Windows 3.1 program with gorillas throwing bananas over skyscrapers as a top 100 program.

Well, before there was a Windows 3.1, there was a Gorilla Banana printer.

A guy i did some part-time work for in the late 70's / early 80's bought several for their office. . .

His company had less of a hardware budget than i did. My systems got the IBM "bi-directional, wire-image, matrix printers" at more than 10x the cost of the Gorilla Banana. . .

And then there was the golden heroine from Spaceballs The Movie (yup, Dot Matrix).
