* ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'''s pet [[EverythingsBetterWithPlatypus platypus]], Perry, is teal-colored with an orange bill. In a recent episode, it seems like ''all'' platypodes (in Danville, at least?) are the same color as theirs.

* Accidentally applied to a village full of FunnyAnimal wading birds in ''[[{{Spellsinger}} Chorus Skating]]'', when Jon-Tom magically re-grows their lost feathers by revising the lyrics of songs about custom paint jobs on cars. Luckily, the altered birds get a real kick out of their new makeovers.
