The Year of the Fabulous Furry Friday

Since Chinese New Year is nigh, I thought this week’s Fabulous Furry Friday round-up would serve the panda-satire loving public well by revisiting our previous Salutes to Chinese New Year by the panda kindergarten! Huzzah! Let’s get good and ready to celebrate the Year of the Dog!

Because Nobody Expects the Panda Kindergarten!

Huzzah! it’s the year of the Dragon! Still one of my favorites!)

The year of the bunny…..

Oh that panda kindergarten!

It’s the year of the WUster!!!!

Huzzah! It’s The year of Pandas on Horsies!

Look out!!!! Oh, those triplets!

Well, the FIRE part had Mehitabel a little worried, but…

Viva les pandas!

The Olympics start TONIGHT!!!!

And in honor of the opening ceremonies of the 2018 Winter Olympics, we thought Fabulous Furry Friday should take a look back at previous Panda-Olympic doings. Fun, huh?

Well, let’s get on with the show!

Sochi Winter Olympics, Pandas

I keep hearing the song “bears on the Run” going through my head…the ski run, that is!

Maybe they have a point…

See, What did I tell you?

This cartoon is one of Bob’s earliest appearances!

The Pandas first attempt at Olympic Glory!

‘and for the record, it’s just “giant slalom.” It’s not just for pandas.’

Pandas using performance enhancing substances? Say it isn’t so!

And don’t forget! Pinky’s new book is OUT! get it HERE!!!

Clap Louder!

Pinky says Buy my book!””

Hey! It’s Groundhog Day

For years, I’ve been thinking I needed to write a Groundhog Day ‘toon, and wouldn’t you know, I don’t start thinking about it until…you guessed it, Groundhog Day. This is also the day that I traditionally procrastinate sending out holiday cards until, and then don’t do that either. So sue me. No, don’t! Just kidding!!!! People ask me how I find the time to be an incredibly gifted painter, write hilarious cartoons, and wrestle 5 acres of Northwest woods into submission. The answer is, I don’t do a lot of things that I probably should do, like clean the house and wash the dishes on some sort of regular basis.

To this I say, do you want to have new cartoons to read each week, or would you rather be able to eat off my bathroom floor without contracting a vile disease or swallow a hairball?

I thought so. You’re welcome.

And it was ever thus….

Meihem, not Mayhem.

Well, they did hang their coats up.

If I have but one life to live, let me give it for a cuppycake.

And for all you brave souls who listened to HWMNBN’s SOTU address. Congratulations. You are far braver than I am. In truth, by this weekend, I will probably have watched it in tiny bits and pieces that I can endure without running out of the house screaming in terror. I am keeping informed, as best I can, but there are limits to my endurance. I call my Senators and Congressman regularly. I’m trying to bring light into the world through art and humor. And I’m going to watch as many panda videos as I can.

Viva les Pandas!
Buy my new book!

It’s Here! The Pinky Defense!

Well, it’s time for all Pinky, all the time! How is that different from the rest of the time, you may well ask. Um…I don’t know, but I’m pretty sure it is. Any way, stop interrupting me! I’m trying to get the word out that Pinky’s new book (book 8 of the Panda Chronicles) What does Pinky have to say about all this?

“Ebbryone Needs to CLAP LOUDER!!!!!”

That’s what Pinky would say. and now, to refresh your memory about just what is The Pinky Defense, here are a few ‘toons that are in the book:

pinky defense

Would YOU believe this panda?

pinky defense

Isn’t that the whole point of being presydent? Pinky.

lawyers

Maybe Mommee Mei might have some influence over Pinky…dream on!

NSA

Did you want to rephrase that last statement?

So run, don’t walk, and get your copy of The Panda Chronicles Book 8: The Pinky Defense!
Bob T Panda

Isn’t this just perfectly pinky?

Fabulously Furry Friday

We need a good laugh. really, we do. Things keep going beyond the “now he’s really done it” stage.  I think tRump went beyond that “point” on the day he announced his candidacy.

Sigh.

I have not quit resisting, but right now, I think we need a few pandas to show us the way.

Viva Les Pandas!

Do NOT mess with Pinky and the Meihems!

do the right thing.

The Power of the Poof. Oh, if only!

day after

Remember the song “The Eve of Destruction”? That’s what today feels like.

whipped cream

Can I have EXTRA extra whipped cream?

Um…I’ll try to be funnier next week.

Panda on!

Cue the Torch Bears!

As we prepare to launch another stellar performance in the Panda Olympics, we have a few more encore antics from the Torch Bears! As you may recall from several years ago, the torch bears attempted to replace their torches with something that would look sort of “torchy” from a distance, because they had…um…sold the torches on eBay before they actually lit the Olympic flame.

Oopsie. That could have happened to anyone!!!!

But before we have a visit with the torch bears, here’s a link to my latest post for The Whidbey Island Arts Council. It’s a modern retelling of Cinderella, to get folks in the mood for an event on the island next week: The Bohemian Ball. The story is a bit long, but I hope you’ll read it and that you enjoy it! Cheers. And if you’re on or near Whidbey Island next Thursday, maybe you’ll put on your dancing shoes, fire up the magic carriage, and party like a panda! (Author’s disclosure: There are no pandas in this story, but there is a cat)

Now….Cue the Torch Bears!!!!

Pandanastics star, PO of Atlanta Zoo, practices for the Olympics, while the Torch Bears continue their around the world journey. Where will they turn up next? Note: this ‘toon was written before Pinky poofed Po and the Meihems into becoming girls.

torch bears, money, selling olympic torch

but now what will they do when they get to the Olympics?…..stay tuned!

Wait…what little Paris incident???…Oh…this one…

Never underestimate the power of a good “fart joke”

Stay tuned for the exciting conclusion of this story!

Oh, those Torch bears!

In other VERY IMPORTANT news, the proof copy of The Pinky Defense is on it’s way, so I hope to be able to have My Pinky’s new book available by the end of the month. And remember, Mitten’s definitely does not want you to buy this book! You know what to do!

Viva Les Pandas!

Fabulous Furry Friday: an Encore Presentation

I love fabulous Furry Friday and the encore presentation idea. Yes, it’s a way to post a third dose of panda satire, without having to do…um…any more work, but readers tell me they love it because it’s fun to see their favorite ‘toons again, while those who are new to the world of panda satire get a chance to get acquainted with the gang!

As this is a year when the Winter Olympics are being held, I thought we should take a couple of Fabulous Furry Friday look backs to Panda Olympics of years past.

Bring on the torch bears!

The first appearance of the Torch Bears!

but now what will they do when they get to the Olympics?…..stay tuned!

Did the Torch Bears take a wrong turn????

Is that the twins I see before me? Don’t tell Lun Lun

Day 30: 31 Days of Pandas

Day 30????? Do you know what that means? There is only One. More. Day. of 31 Days of Pandas!!!!

How could it come to such an abrupt, bitter end? Where will we find the pandas we need and crave??? Um..Hey! it’s not like I’m going anywhere! Panda satire will be right here where you left it! Of course you could have your own 31 days of Pandas, or even 131 days of pandas if you had all of the Panda Chronicles books in your home library!!

Meanwhile, we intercepted several communiques from the inbox of Princess Pinky, who is hard at work (really? No, just kidding!) on her latest literary triumph, The Panda Chronicles Book 8: The Pinky Defense. We think it bears (!) careful study!

Vote early, vote often, vote PINKY!!!!
Sent from my MePhone, the choice of pandas everywhere.

To which she received this reply:

Dear Princess Pinky!
I hope the panda chronicles will ask all your fans to vote a lot for you!
Good luck!
Kind regards,

Sounds mighty suspicious, if you ask me! But now, let’s read some ‘toons! And because I love you, here is the ENTIRE story of Pinky, Bubba, and the Canadian Twins!

Bubba: but why should I be in trubble?

I’ll talk! I’ll talk!

Pinky and the Twinkies, eh?

“If Pinky is grounded, can I have her dessert?”

uh oh…

Um…I think Pinky has Daddee wrapped around her fuzzy little paw. Just saying.

Ooooh! Did Daddee actually yell at Pinky?

What do you mean you left a note saying they are at my house?

Bubba is having so much fun with his new friends!

Hey! Where did Bubba and Mr. Bun go?

There may be political concussions!

See you in January back on our regular schedule, new ‘toons on Sunday and Wednesday, and encore presentations on Fake Facts Friday. You like it? I invented all those words!

#Resist!

Panda On

Day 29: 31 Days of Pandas

Before there was Pinky, there was…the panda kindergarten!!

Oh me, oh my! The pandasphere is buzzing tonight! will Pinky win her division in the Global Giant Pandy Awards? Did Bubba get what he wanted for CrispMoss? What will happen when Pinky, the Meihems, Wu, and all the rest get home from their adventure? Will EVERYONE get grounded?

I guess you’ll have to tune in on Sunday for the conclusion of our story!

But in the meantime (and for the next few days) it’s STILL 31 Days of Pandas time!!!!

What could be more scottish than Pandas?

And it’s never too early to start getting ready for New Year’s Eve!

The panda kindergarten at their best…or is that worst?

Hope you have enjoyed our trip down panda-satire-memory lane!

Day 28: 31 Days of Pandas

Only four more days of pandas! Oh my! But never fear, we will still be here when the clock chimes midnight on the 31st, with new ‘toons for the New Year! Huzzah! Before long, the resolutionists* will be clogging up my yoga class (*people who resolve to start going to yoga again, after 9 months or more of not showing up), crowding the vegetable and health food aisles at the grocery store and leaving the cookie aisle vacant. (Bwahahaha! More for me!!!!)

So here are the things that I resolve for the new year:

  1. Eat more frosting. There is no reason not to if we are all going to die in a nuclear apocalypse; our healthcare is gone, as is all government support for those in need.
  2. Resist  evil where ever it lifts it’s ugly head.
  3. Eat more frosting.
  4. Keep drawing pandas, and letting them speak their minds.
  5. Eat more…um…frosting.
  6. Get to yoga on time so a resolutionist does not take my spot.
  7. Eat more….you guessed it! Frosting!!!!!!

The panda kindergaten knows where you live.

You say you want a resolution, well, you know, it is hard to change a bear….
