Parroty Interactive was an American video game developer based Larkspur, California, which acted as a division of publisher Palladium Interactive, Inc.

Parroty Interactive created a number of notable parody video games for personal computers running Microsoft Windows or Mac OS.[1] The company's name was intended as a play-on-words between "parody" and "parrot". Palladium Interactive was acquired by The Learning Company in April 1999,[2][3] and Parroty Interactive was discontinued.
