If I told you that Nickelodeon’s SpongeBob Squarepants was the highest rated show amongst kids, you probably wouldn’t be surprised. If I added that a reasonable portion of its audience is college-age adults, you still probably wouldn’t be surprised. But if I were to tell you that it is the most loved TV show amongst pet parrots, then you might think I’m insane. However, I have proof.
Bird Talk magazine recently asked its readers, “What TV Shows does your bird love?” At the top of their list was SpongeBob. While many kids’ shows made the list, possibly due to their bright colors, the common thread amongst the other responses was theme songs. Not surprisingly, the article also mentioned The Andy Griffith Show and Pink Panther.
