The Stinkbug!

four black cats with stinkbug
You’d better be scared, bug!

What happens when four great minds get together? In honor of a stinkbug that made everyone but me dance on the bed this morning I thought I’d dig out the photos of the Fantastic Four when they were the Amazing Adolescents, at 18 months old exploring their domain. They encountered a stinkbug innocently walking on the landing and it became the most important thing in their world for at least 15 minutes. I made a slideshow out of the 11 photos I took of their encounter, added music, and converted it to a movie!

The music is “Moderato allegro ma non troppo moderato”, the theme “The Cat” from “Peter and the Wolf” composed by Sergei Prokofiev, Leopold Stokowski conducting the All American Orchestra. You may recognize it when you hear it even if you don’t know the piece of music, but from Saturday morning cartoons.

You can watch the video below or click here to view it on YouTube!

Apparently we had a foster in the spare bedroom, and for the life of me I can’t figure out who that might have been, in January 2009…
