    Petey, lightning bugs aren’t electric. Some eels on the other hand…

    I love fireflies… they’re delightful.

    … and so is the show. Wish it had had a longer run. I do.

    Petey, now you’re beginning to worry me. Every kid I ever knew when I was that age loved lightning bugs—even the ones who didn’t like any other insects or bugs! As Alice says, you catch them, and then you keep them in a mason jar [remember those?] with plenty of holes poked through the lid….

    Petey’s taking all the fun out of it.

    Lightning Bugs don’t live in Northern Colorado and I’ve never seen them


    They do sound like a lot of fun for kids

    I don’t think there’s any electricity involved – just chemicals.

    Leave Captain Tightpants out of this. We’re talkin’ insects, not business.<br
    I’ve always wondered if the “Captain Tightpants” line was an adlib. The glee on Jewel’s face when she said it… she just looked like she was having too much fu that day…

    But it is cold fire Petey! Nature’s efficiency at work.

    Or you could call them flying glowworms.

    It’s funny how we call them lightning bugs, fireflies or even glow worms… but they are actually beetles. Whatever we call them, they are delightful.

    They are blinking their love signals to waiting females who chose the best that flickers.

    We don’t have them here in Ca.but when I was a kid we would go to the midwest where they were plentiful. I remember catching them in a jar and having them on the nightstand. I still love seeing them.

    and some of them fake the love signals of other lightning bugs — lure them in and make a meal of ’em!
