I just received a beautiful Axtell cockatoo. When I opened the Box,she told me she was a girl,and said her name was Dolly. She told me she loves Dolly Parton,and she thinks she looks a lot like Ms. Parton.

I could use some help in coming up some routines for Dolly.

Dolly (Pardon Me), has some features that could be egg-agerated on the Cockatoo with some creative costuming. She joined your show because she was tired of working 9 to 5!

Here is a wig that could be added as part of a Dolly lookalike. (just copy and paste into your browser.)

Hi Tony,

Neat looking wig, do you think it would fit Dolly my Cockatoo?

I would suggest taking a look at doll wigs at a local Joanne fabrics or Michaels and see what you think. I really have no idea whether it would fit.

I like the fact that you are giving your new puppet a character rather than just going for bird jokes. It will make a huge difference in your script writing.

I would recommend that the bird be Dolly's biggest fan. (Most people love Dolly Parton.) Her goal could be to sing with Dolly someday.

Vent: What is your name?
F: Dolly.
Vent: You mean like "Polly want a cracker?"
F: I said, 'Dolly'!
Vent: Oh, like that old singer, Dolly Parton.
F: She isn't old! She never ages! She looks good! She's like a bird!
Vent: How is she like a bird?
F: She defies gravity!
Vent: It sounds like you are a big Dolly Parton.
F: I am her BIGGEST fan! I started listening to her when I was very young.
Vent: Why do you like her so much?
F: She helped me come out of my shell.
Vent: I think you just cracked a joke.
F: No. I cracked an egg. Dolly is my hero. She can sing like a bird!
Vent: Yes, she is a wonderful singer.
F: And she's beautiful!
Vent: Yes. She is a nice looking lady.
(just thinking on paper here)
