Ask Jeeves is back!...just not in North America

Do you remember one of the Internet's most recognizable faces?

I hope so, because the brand is back! (kind of).

Ask.com conducted a poll in the United Kingdom, and it turns out that after a 3-year hiatus, the lovable Jeeves is back by popular demand. This time he's in 3-D.

If you don't remember, Jeeves is the regal butler of Ask Jeeves fame, which was originally introduced in 1996 when the Internet was really gaining momentum.

Unfortunately, Jeeves is staying in the U.K. because Ask.com (the company that owns the Jeeves character), doesn't think that North American audiences can wrap their heads around the idea of a 'butler' anymore.
