Just the other day I had the following conversation with my daughter.
“Are praying mantises real?”
“What do they look like?”
“I think you’ve seen one before. They’re kind of big and bright green and have funny front arms. Oh! You know the picture of Zorack on the Space Ghost CD we always listen to? He’s a praying mantis!”
Then my husband looked at me like he thought I was crazy for using Space Ghost as some sort of educational tool. Whatevs. Anyway, rest in peace C. Martin Croker. Thank you for your amazing work, and giving us so many laughs, and teaching my daughter what a praying mantis looks like.
