While who wouldn’t love a holiday that’s all about chocolate, I have to admit that Valentine’s Day has never been one of my favorite holiday. It always felt like a day that’s sole purpose is to make single people feel like crap, and even when I was a kid and they had the “everyone must have a card for everyone” rule in school, I only got the obligatory tiny flat “cards” and never one of those elaborate handmade ones that showed you were REALLY loved and valued.
On the other hand, if I’d had a rich and friend filled childhood, I wouldn’t have become an artist and a cartoonist, so it’s a win for everyone. Right? Am I right?
Aw, Pinky…Bubba loves you!
Panda Putti, for all you art history majors! Google it, everyone else!
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 isThe PinkyDefense, here are a few ‘toons that are in the book:
Would YOU believe this panda?
Isn’t that the whole point of being presydent? Pinky.
Maybe Mommee Mei might have some influence over Pinky…dream on!
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!

You would think that Pinky would have figured out how to avoid Mommee Mei’s resolutions lists by now, but you would be mistaken. Fortunately, all she ever suggests for Bubba is that he chew his food well. Meanwhile, maybe Ping Ping will resolve to learn a few words in English, but on the other hand, I think he is very expressive, even with his limited vocabulary.
Pinky: “Why do I need resolutions when I’m already perfect?” A fair question, indeed!
Pinky: “rules are for other pandas.”
The files for the latest volume of The Panda Chronicles: The Pinky Defense are being reviewed even as we speak. After putting together 8 books of the cartoons, it finally seems (I say seems, because…) to be going smoothly, with no issues flagged by the printer, so I think it’s high time I reveal the cover, don’t you?
Thanks again to my Twitter friend from across the pond, @law_geek, for suggesting this title. The community of panda fans is awesome in the extreme!
Here we are again! The New Year is still fresh and shiny, Pinky is plotting ways to win in all categories of the Global Panda Awards, an arctic freeze is blanketing the east coast, and way out west in the upper left hand corner, it is raining as usual. Is Pinky’s tax reform plan any worse than that of the Republicans? Only time will tell.
But just a reminder, if you have to cheat to win, it’s not really winning, is it?
I guess Pinky and the GOP have something in common, as much as it pains me to say…
BTW, progress is progressing on the next volume of The Panda Chronicles! I think on Wednesday we will reveal the cover in a sneak preview! Huzzah! Be sure to tune in on Wednesday!
Have yourself a pandy little Christmas…. Note baby Pinky riding with Santa!
Well, I know what one of my wishes is! How about you?
All I Want for Christmas…
Who didn’t have a sibling like Pinky?
Speaking of Pinky, I have a large number of photos of pandas that I use for my changing desktop display, and a series of them showing this week are of baby Pinky! One of my more skeptical friends says, how can you tell? Pandas all look alike! But Pinky had a way about her from a very young age. It is a look that says, “wook at dat paw! dat is da mos’ bootiful paw dat ebber was!” She was a star and a cover girl from such an early age!
Never say “No” to a Pinky!
I love that one!
It is! it IS all about Pinky!
Keep Being the Bear!

And don’t forget to tune in tomorrow for a BRAND NEW holiday ‘toon! Huzzah!
As I compile this post, Alabama voters are going to the polls to decide whether they want to elect the #Trumple candidate or...GASP!!!! a DEMOCRAT!!!!! All I can say, is that with the moves toward voter suppression in black and Democratic districts, it is unclear if this will be a free and fair election. I only have one thing to say about this: If you have to cheat to win, it’s not really winning, is it?
But meanwhile, baby pandas are in peril! Let’s go to the next episode of…
101 Bebe Panda-Nations!
Inspector Panda has arrived! He’ll…um…solve everything!
Remember when we were all freaked out about the news that the NSA was monitoring our phone calls and internet communications? Yeah…those seem like the good times now! Sad! But as Bubba is soon to find out, that the NSA is a piker when compared to the surveillance capabilities of Princess Pinky! And now she has gone undercover off camera as she has her crew of decorators comes in to give her quarters in Dujiangyan a little updating and sprucing up.
So she says!
There is no telling what Pinky is getting up to and no one knows that better than her adorable and easily manipulated little brother, Bubba. As I was drawing the next ‘toon, I realized that they are inspired, in large part, by none other than Lucy and Linus Van pelt, of Peanuts fame! Am I wrong? But in the meantime, remember….
Pinky knows where you live!!!!
Did you want to rephrase that last statement?
BTW, I have been given permission to post this notice about next years Panda Convention in PanDiego California! Final details are still be worked out as to pricing, but we wanted you to have the opportunity to save the date just in case you might could be in the vicinity of the Pandiego Zoo in early March of 2018!
See Mr. Wu! Talk about pandas! Hang out with other panda loving folks! Rumor has it, Bob T Will be there!
I used to love All Pandas Eve …all of the little pandas, dressed in their costumes, heading out to trick or treat…maybe to a party…the air crisp and cold as the moon rises or the still visible tree tops and outlines of houses.
Actually, that’s not true. Going out trick or treating for Halloween made me vaguely anxious. I did like have a big bag of candy at the nights end. And that was in the days that you got full size candy bars, not those tiny “snack size” candy bars that you need to eat have a dozen to get a good mouth of chocolate. Ahem.
So let’s forget about all that and join Pinky and the rest of the junior pandas as they ponder what kind of All Pandas Eve costume would scare the crap out of everyone…
What kind of surprises will be in store for our intrepid panda pals, as the arrive at the summer camp for The Institute of Inner Panda Studies? They might be surprised to learn that they already have a fan club! I’m sure the panda kindergarten has internet access, so of course they would already know all about Pinky and the Meihems, wouldn’t they?
Let’s join Pinky and the Meihems as this year’s panda kindergarten welcomes them to summer camp !
Pinky: after all, i AM a icon!!!!
Who, indeed is in charge around here? Stay tuned to this station on your radio dial, panda satire fans!
Well, we’re back in the PINKY pink that is! What a whirlwind couple of weeks it’s been here at panda satire central! A successful Kickstarter campaign, preparations for a painting show, and very (very) soon, visitors from the other side of the globe, panda fans extraordinaire, Paul and Vicky!
But meanwhile, Pinky is going off an an adventure that should help keep her in the pink!
