Budgies on TV

The Andy Griffith Show.ag1Episode 1: “The New Housekeeper”ag2Dickie is little Opie Taylor’s pet parakeet. After misbehaving, Opie is sent to his room without supper. He sneaks a plate anyway, and then blames Dickie, who “loves” to eat fried chicken and biscuits with honey. Dickie escapes when Aunt Bee cleans his cage. This is the last straw for Opie, who sees Aunt Bee as an unwelcome addition to the family. Opie later has a change of heart, and the episode ends with Dickie finding his way home.

Apparently, Dickie is a modern bird who also enjoys Sanka coffee.
