Manny is a praying mantis with an English accent, the magician of P.T. Flea's circus troupe and the character from the 1998 film, A Bug's Life. Manny is Gypsy's husband. His magic act involves the 'Chinese Cabinet of Metamorphosis', which is really a Chinese food take-out carton. His magic act is not appreciated well by the flies in the usual audience; but the grasshoppers, when he is set to distract them, take it seriously.
