They certainly know when an animal shows up on the screen.

Sci show with just dogs? That sounds amazing, I would sub!






Hell, that's probably a really good idea for Scishow space. Those hosts are terrible! Replace them with cute dogs and it will increase the quality of Scishow space tenfold!

Me: Clifford? Who’s Clifford? Oh! He means Bertrand! Right! ~*misses several seconds of dialogue while my brain remembers the name change from English to French*~ 🙄

Creators of children’s stories... Please keep the names of the protagonists consistent across languages! 😂

My dog loves the velociraptors in jurassic park

Our previous dog ignored the TV unless there were lions on it. Seriously, no other animals, not even dogs, got her interest but lions somehow transfixed her... even other big cats she couldn't have cared less about.

"Does your dog seem more excited for the next season of Game of Thrones than you are?" ...If we're talking season 8, then yeah. And I don't even have a dog.

My German Shepherd never cared about TV at all, except when there was a knock or a doorbell or another dog barking.

Now my cat notices my tv more than my dog does

I DONT BELIEVE THAT DOGS CAN ONLY SEE 2 COLORS, THERE IS NO WAY TO KNOW THIS UNLESS YOU COULD TALK TO A DOG AND ASK IT.

My cats like the movie Kedi. I had it on the other day and one of them was very attentively watching a scene where two cats were establishing territory.

This was charming.

Could this perhaps go for cats, too? When I was a kid, I was watching a documentary that showed a clip of Ed White's spacewalk, and our cat Liddy tried to play with a loose-floating piece of ribbon on White's spacesuit (it was a CRT screen on a TV from around the 1980s), and as a kid my favorite movie was Peter Hyams' 2010, and whenever I would watch it in my room with the lights off, my cat Shadow seemed to watch it with genuine interest (I was watching a VHS copy of the film on one of those little CRT TVs with a built in VCR you could get back in the 90s).

My old doberman (now passed away) watched TV and barked EVERY TIME an animal was on the screen. He barked at animated animals as well as real ones. If he was excited enough, he would race toward the TV and look BEHIND IT, thinking it was a sort of window. Of course, in real life, he CHASED every animal he saw, as well.
