* Parodied in ''TheAreasOfMyExpertise'', where these attributes - and, indeed, the Shakespearean page quote - are modified so that they apply to lobsters. Lobsters are introduced to America because of the Shakespeare passage and there's a failed attempt at establishing them as popular pets, but then everyone realizes that they are ugly, violent little animals, so instead the lobsters just get eaten.

* Creator/CarlBarks had two parrot characters, [[http://disneycomics.free.fr/Ducks/Barks/1942/pirategold/Thumbnails.html Yellow Beak]], and [[http://disneycomics.free.fr/Ducks/Barks/1946/singapore/Thumbnails.html Joe from Singapore]]. Both are fully intelligent, but neither are very anthropomorphic (especially compared to the Parrot character José Carioca). Magica DeSpell's raven was similar.
