parentNode from an <a> in a td.

Howdy.

I got this structure: <td style="background-color: #000000"><a href="javascript:Pick(this);"></a></td>

I want to get the background-color value with JS, I tried to access the TD by:

function Pick(color) {
  alert(color.parentNode);
}

But it returns undefined.

Help would be appreciated.
