Parroty created a number of notable parody video games for the PC and Apple Macintosh. The company's name was intended as a play-on-words between "parody" and "parrot"; the company logo depicted a red parrot, with Groucho Marx-style glasses, moustache, and cigar. Parroty was a division of Palladium Interactive; the parent company's main focus was on children's educational and "home productivity" software. Palladium Interactive was bought out by The Learning Company in 1998, and the Parroty division was discontinued.
