Baby Panda Season

What better distraction is there to world events, the 2016 presidential election, and the lack of cake at my house, than BABY PANDA SEASON ??????? Pandas are popping out all over, and while we wait to see if Lun Lun (mom of the Meihems) or Lady MacBear of Edinburgh are going to gift us with bouncing baby pandas, we must be satisfied with reports and pictures of panda kiddies in China and Belgium.

So to celebrate Baby Panda Season, we here at The Institute for Contemporary Panda Satire and Fabulous Furry Friday bring you some of our favorite cartoons about….baby pandas! (What? you thought it was going to be about the gross national product forecasts or the effect on global economies if Britain leaves the EU?)

"Howdy do! I'm Mr. Wu! Who are you?"

“Howdy do! I’m Mr. Wu! Who are you?”

Yo ho ho and a bottle of BooBeer!

And then just one year later, Meihem ensued!

Oh, those southern Belle pandas!

And then along came PINKY!

Such a little darling! How could her big brother resist spoiling her?

Princess Pinky is drawing a line in the sandbox. Even as a baby, she was a force to be reckoned with.

But then we had no new baby pandas till 10 months ago when Pinky’s little brother Bubba arrived…although that event was a mixed blessing…

PP: um, dis is not going to interrupt my presidential campaign, is it?

One of Mei Xiang’s twin cubs did not survive, and Pinky dealt with the loss as only Pinky can…

Mr Bun has a question, daddee.

I love Pinky’s resilience! But we would not be doing our job here if we did not include one of my favorite baby Bubba ‘toons.

Bubba's first feature role!

He's small for now, but Bubba Bei Bei is shaping up to be a whole lot of panda!

I hope we have distracted you sufficiently from the trials and turmoil of the real world.
Be the Bear, everyone!

    What a great pick of past storylines. Mei sure has feisty cubs! We all know about Pinky’s sparkle! I had forgotten about Bubba’s early salty language; as well as this early indication that he will not be follow all of his sister’s wishes. Happy Weekend.

      Happy weekend to you too!
      I think Bubba’s early revelations that he shouldn’t always listen to his sister will help him nanvigate his natural good nature and tendency to believe the best in other pandas.

      Well, those ARE two of my farvorites. I had forgotten how early Pinky developed her…um…philosophy of “Pinky First”
      Hope it made the day a little easier.

    I love ‘toons down memory lane! These are some of my favorites, especially the one of Pinky receiving her special delivery from No. 1 Son. Yes, it definitely distracted me from all of the craziness that’d been going on around the world.

      I know I certainly needed a distraction. Glad you enjoyed them! Have a good weekend.

      I won’t be smug about our weather. It’s absolutely beautiful and today I saw THREE coyote puppies playing on my drain field. Dang they are still cute.
      Glad you enjoyed the stroll down memory lane. I kind of forgot how early Pinky developed her superior attitude.
