My hedgie doesn't like loud movies/shows. I have tried a few different times to snuggle with him while there was a movie going, and, while he doesn't puff or pop, he can't sleep during them and is constantly moving around in his snuggle sack--when any other time, he would be fast asleep. As long as the TV isn't too much louder than under normal circumstances, he doesn't mind. But when it gets turned up a little because people are getting into the action, he starts giving me "Okay mom, let's leave the room now" signals. I think it depends on the individual hedgie.
