Boomerang UK National Pet Month 2017 Study

According to a study conducted by the Boomerang UK TV channel for this year’s National Pet Month, Dads are more likely than mums to post videos and photos of their pets on social media. Also according to the study, 64% of families in larger households take hilarious and adorable photos and videos of their pet at least once a day. Half of parents (50.5%) allow their children to watch animal-related programming because animal shows bring happiness and laughter.

Boomerang is a TV channel is known not only for its mix of classic and contemporary animation but also for its animal cartoon characters, the channel is home to some of the UK’s most loved animated characters, Scooby-Doo (No. 1 in the UK) and Tom and Jerry (No. 3 in the UK) and also for its Pet of the Week promotion, where viewers can upload videos and photos of their pets on the Boomerang UK website for the opportunity to see their pet on TV. Also the study found that a quarter of parents and kids name their pet after a character from a cartoon or film.

In a pet “wishlist” survey with kids aged twelve and under, dogs came in first with 44.4% of the vote, followed by cats (28.6%), horses (19.2%), elephants (15.6%) and finally, bears (13.9%).

From The Turner UK Press Release: Dads More Likely Than Mums To Snap A Photo Of Their Beloved Pet At Least Once A Day: 63% of kids and parents claim that one of the qualities they value most in their pet is their ability to always make them laugh. Dads more likely than mums to be the “famous” animal Instagrammer in the household

The most famous mum on the planet, Kim Kardashian, may be the Queen of the selfie, but a recent study from Boomerang TV channel in the UK found that dads were the expert at snapping photos and videos of their pets for some quick likes on social media. The study found that 64.4% of families in larger households take hilarious and adorable photos and videos of their pet at least once a day, with dads more likely than mums to document their pets’ interactions.

Boomerang, the proud channel home of world-renowned animal characters like Tom and Jerry, Scooby-Doo and Bugs Bunny, released the results to coincide with National Pet Month in the UK and highlight the starring role animals play within families both on and off-screen.

With just over half of parents citing laughter and happiness among the primary reasons for letting their children watch animal-related programming (50.5%), it also came as no surprise that Scooby-Doo ranked number one amongst kids’ all-time favourite cartoon characters, followed by Peppa Pig in second place and Tom and Jerry in third. Furthermore, the study found that a quarter of parents and kids make the decision to name their beloved pet animal after a character from a cartoon or film.

Elephants made the top five in a pet “wish list” amongst kids twelve and under, dogs came in first with 44.4% of the vote, followed by cats (28.6%), horses (19.2%), elephants (15.6%) and finally, bears (13.9%).

Whether on-screen in their favourite cartoon or TV show, or as part of their daily interaction with a family pet, it’s clear that kids and parents alike enjoy a regular dose of humour thanks to the planet’s furry (and scaly!) friends.

Catch the best of Scooby-Doo every Saturday from 1pm-4pm, followed by the best of Tom and Jerry every Sunday from 1pm-4pm on Boomerang.
