    Stefan's parrots

    I can’t remember where I read it so I’m not sure how true it is, but I read somewhere that the parrots in Rottenbeard and Little Sportacus were actually Stefan’s Click image for larger version.

    Not sure if one of them was actually his but it could be the one in Rottenbeard. In Iceland he had this parrot named Olina but the bird went to a foster house when they moved to New York in 2005.

    The parrot in Rottenbeard was his and his wife's bird. They brought it in for the episode.

    Re: Stefan's parrots

    I found this story on Reddit a few months ago and it does add something to this thread.

    Backstory: I was visiting my sister who was working on Lazytown in Iceland. While driving to the studio, we saw a bunch of cats in the road, looking like they were stalking something. My sister got out, and saw it was a young-looking African Grey parrot. Since they're obviously not native to Iceland, she figured it was a pet. She went over to it, and put her arm down, and it quickly hopped on to her and climbed up to her shoulder. Ok, it was a very friendly parrot, now very obviously a pet.

    With no better ideas, we took it to the studio with us, and let it hang out in the green room (seen here). Stefán came in between scenes and saw the bird, and got some bird food from his car (he had pet parrots at the time, and happened to have some of their food in his car). He also knew the people at the local pet store (or exotic pet store? I can't exactly remember) and so called them, to see if they had heard of anyone's pet African Grey going missing. Sure enough, one of the employees there had lost his - he had hand-raised it since it was a chick, and it had been with him at a park (see above re: super tame) when a strong gust of wind carried it farther than it had been before and got lost.

    They contacted the employee who quickly came to the studio with tears in his eyes (and flowers for us and Stefán) and was reunited with his bird.

    I saw one response on Reddit
    My sister is a puppeteer
    https://www.dinosaurlive.com ... My sister is a performer in this show and is puppeteering parts of this dinosaur!..
    The only one that worked both on "Walking With Dinosaurs" and "LazyTown" is Amanda Maddock.
    So it was Amanda's sister who wrote the story.
