From reading over https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snorks I now know:
- There’s fresh- and salt-water Snorks, differentiated by how many snorkel-horns they have.
- There were a pair of robot Snorks, named “SNIP” and “SNAP”, who “pretend to be UFOs upon first appearance”.
- Wikipedia’s editors for this page judge it appropriate to mention that “clams” is a slang term for money.
- The page has not just a “Minor Snorks” section, but even a “Supporting Snorks” sub-section, which I find piquantly sad.
- They had a time machine used to send a prehisnorkic Snork who’d been trapped in ice to the present day back to his home time. I admit I am uncomfortable letting Snorks have power over the course of history.
- There were prehisnorkic Snorks trapped in ice cubes underwater until the (then-) present day.
- There’s a “Snork-Eater Eater Fish”, a fish which eats Snork-Eater fish. I’m glad they have a world tidy in this way.
- They apparently had at least one writers session which ended with a consensus that they would call ancient times “prehisnorkic”.
- The series was sold to NBC television on the strength of a three-minute pilot episode which has never been revealed to the general public.
- Snorks adopted the human custom of wearing clothes after an encounter with the captain of a Spanish Armada ship in 1643. Wikipedia leaves the details of this encounter to my immature imagination.
