Who didn’t have Sea Monkeys as a child? That’s exactly what I knew them as, even as a child in Argentina, where the Spanish translation would have been monos marinos. They are tiny tadpole-like creatures. Slightly hairy with a long thin spine, and two round black eyes that seem to be popping out of their translucent skin.
Sea Monkeys have become a pop culture staple. So much so that references of them have been made in movies and shows like The Simpsons, Desperate Housewives, Roseanne, and South Park, among others. Not only that, but Sea Monkeys also have their own worship website and a solid cult following.
