We Want More Cake

Because who wouldn’t want more cake or in this case, more cartoons about cake and cuppycakes? I can’t think of any self respecting panda who wouldn’t be saying more cake! more frosting! under similar circumstances.

So let’s have more cartoons about more cake…

There must be cake!

Can you calibrate the cuppycake?

Princess Pinky says, she is thankful for cuppycakes and da panda kindygarten and her magical wand!

Inspector Panda says, “Know the signs of cuppycake dependency”

Legalize cake today! Prevent illicit cuppycake activities.

Escape! Come with me, little cake, so we can be alone together.

“Madame Babette sees all!: I see cake in my…er…your future!”

Panda On!

And so begins our Tale (or is that “Tail”?)

I can hardly focus my mind on pandas, what with various members of a certain family claiming innocence because something turned out to be nothing, when really what matters is that you thought it was something! And so begins our tale …

But first! Last week I had a visit from my previously unmet-in-real-life friends from the other side of the globe. Despite several flight cancellations just in order to get here, they finally arrived and what a wonderful time we had! Let’s just say that cuppycakes and PIE were involved!

Did someone say cuppycakes?

While normally, I try to promote blogs that I find interesting or are written by people I know, I must tell you that you should definitely NOT read this post about making two lonely little cuppycakes and you most definitely should NOT make this little bite size batch of peanut butter frosting and if you DID make this petit batch of peanut butter frosting, you should definitely not add a little bit of dark cocoa powder OR eat the whole thing with a spoon.

Ahem…or whip up a batch with no intention of putting it on a cuppycake…

but now, so begins our tale ….

so begins our tale

We call our liddle tale, “Being Endangered is Such a Curse!”

Yes, it’s another YBOP Fractured Fable! Huzzah. And like many fairy tales, there are wicked…um…witches, and fair maidens, not to mention a gallant prince who saves the day. And of course, everyone is a panda, more or less.

Panda on everyone!

The Panda Kindergarten Presents…

Yes, we are getting close to another one of our fractured literary classics, where we make a shambles of re-write for pandas, a beloved tale of our childhood! Huzzah! But first, the panda kindergarten has a song for Pinky and the Meihems!

Be quiet, Pinky! The panda kindergarten is about to sing!

How about that!

Panda On!
Bob T Panda

Who’s in charge here, anyway?

I hope everyone had a happy fourth of July, ate lots of grilled items of your choice and did not expire from potato salad that was sitting out too long. Also that you did not…um…let the panda kindergarten take fireworks IN to the house and that everything is still standing in your neighborhood. As in Washington DC, as well as The Institute for Inner Panda Studies summer camp, the question remains: Who’s in charge here, anyway?

Could it be?….

who's in charge here, anyway?

C’est Moi?

Oh, yes, it will be a very long summer, I think.

Panda On!

Pandas Are Standing By

Yes, this is a little like those endless pledge drive on public radio and TV. My Kickstarter project will go live next week, on Wednesday, June 7th, tentatively at noon. I thought it would be fun to share some of the Kickstarter and other panda fundraising ‘toons I’ve done in the past. If nothing else, the first one explains how Kickstarter works, as told by pandas because….

Pandas are standing by to take your call!

and that’s what it’s all about!

Oh, Mr. Kitty!

Poot Poot! (This was for you, Cami)

Says Babette de Panda: “It’s all about MOI` “

Our lack of taste is only exceeded by our sense of the absurd.

fundraising on Kickstarter

Ha ha! George Clooney… where do those little pandas get these ideas?

I hope this trip down memory lane of Kickstarter projects past gets you excited about this project, since it’s been a couple years since my last one, to publish Pandamorphosis.  If you’d like a sneak peak preview of what’s in store, check out this preview link!

Mei Watch and the Pitter Patter of Little Paws

Oh, it is that time again! The first cubbies (twins!) have been born at a zoo in China and the Smithsonian just announced in their email that Mei Xiang has entered the Panda Season of Love! And now it is baby panda season!!!!

To celebrate, let’s revisit some classic toons about baby pandas, but first… Mei Watch!

Soooo….you are saying no pandas in bikinis?

#6 is getting ready to make his move!

Huzzah!….ooops.

will the pitter patter of little paws soon follow?

…if I were a panda, yadda dah dah da- da- da- AAARGH! I can’t stop!!!!!

Stay tuned for more Mei Watch news (however we will not be posting videos such as the 2012 video at the Pan Diego Zoo!) as it becomes available.

Pseudo thumbs crossed!

Panda On!

Have a fabulous furry Friday!

It’s worth a mention here, that my secret password only page about the China trip won’t go live until June 7th, when I launch my Kickstarter campaign. If anyone here wants a sneak peak at the campaign, send me a message on the contact page, and I’ll send you the preview link. You won’t be able to pledge yet, but you can see what the project is about and what the rewards are!

I’m not a Doctor …

…but I play one in Congress. Well, I have been restraining myself (somewhat) on commenting on the political shenanigans coming out of Washington DC (heretofore known as “The OTHER Washington) but I’m afraid they’ve riled me yet again. Actually, I’m in a fairly constant state of rage and anxiety these days, as are many of my friends. Doctor Doctor can’t you give me something to ease my pain and suffering? Nope, sorry. Political anxiety is no longer covered by your insurance. You may want to print this list to see who you want to vote out in 2018.

Unless, of course, you are a member of Congress, and then you have the best healthcare in the country, paid by guess who?

So, with all that in mind, it seems like a great time to replay these ‘toons, in which Bob plays a soap opera doctor, on All My Pandas Time of  General Suffering…or something like that.

All My Pandas……

Oh, Doctor …

I'm not a doctor but I play one on television

And it is but a small leap (well in my mind, anyway) from pandas pretending to be soap opera doctors to pandas with gender identity issues, because you know your government wants to have something to say about that too!

Love the hat!.

How easy is it going to be to stay healthy with no EPA or food safety regulations? Asking for a friend.

You knew I was going to share this cartoon again, didn’t you?

Fabulous Furry Friday

Pinky and Bubba have gotten so much attention recently, so I thought we would give Bob and Mehitabel a chance to shine in today’s edition of Fabulous Furry Friday! Put your paws together and give a big Panda Chronicles welcome for this encore presentation, featuring our favorite cartoon panda! (and cat. Don’t forget the cat.)

Let Bob Speak!!!!!

The Life of PIE….get it? *chortle chortle*

And here are some very early Bob ‘toons!

bears in the air…

Beware…..

Pandas have a better idea…

notice the stylish design….

please have your tray table in their upright position for take-off…

…and most of all, don’t panic.

see, doesn’t this look just like British Airways’ new paint job?

I rest my case.

All My Pandas……

Everything I know

Pandas have long been active in literary pursuits

Have a happy weekend, everyone. Monday you can go back to worrying about the downfall of Democracy as we know it.

Panda On

What could be more fabulous …

…than the panda season of LOVE!!!!!? I know these are hard times: Bao Bao has gone to China, as have the Meihems; Bei Bei no longer gets to romp and roll with his mama. And you know who is in the White House. But wait! There is hope! Mei and Tian may yet do the Pandy Tango, and then we may get a bouncing baby panda or two. Wouldn’t that be fabulous in the extreme?

And not only is it the beginning of the Panda Season of LOOOOOOVE, we have a new book out! Now! It’s here!

The seventh book of The Panda Chronicles Series: don’t call mee boo boo!

So, while you are logging in to your Pandazon account, here are some ‘toons celebrating the upcoming panda season of love!

I hope people haven’t had enough of silly love songs!

it’s the panda, the panda season of love!

The Scottish pandas have had a few disappointments…

I am only making some of this up. copyright 2012 -A. Belov

A panda by any other name, would smell…well, they would just smell…

The Panda Season of Loooooove does not always go smoothly, so panda nannies must be prepared for “Plan B

“It was dark….there were men in masks….”

Well, why are you just sitting there chortling to yourself? Go buy my book!

Panda On!

Keep ’em laughing, Friday

First of all, a big panda thank you to everyone who made a donation to the ACLU or Planned Parenthood so far. You have all of February to do so and get some very cool, not-available-in-any-store panda swag stuff. I’ll do my best to get stuff to you in a timely manner. See yesterday’s post for details! and per my campaign promise to provide a little lighter fare every Friday, so that everyone keeps laughing, (or fiddling while Rome burns?) here are some ‘toons from the past to keep the country’s humor deficit from reaching an apocalyptic level!

And a heads up, I am starting to compile the next collection of Panda Chronicles ‘toons in book form! It’s been a long time coming!

Now! On with the show! Start your engines!
