And Now, the Moment You’ve ALL Been Waiting For!

Well, all of you, except maybe for Pinky. I just have NO IDEA how she is going to take the emergence of this little charmer from France: the one, the only, the maximumly adorable Bebe` Maurice! If you have not seen him yet, feast your eyes of this video of Bebe` Maurice! (Editor’s note: the folks at Zoo Parc Beauval have NO IDEA that their little baby panda’s name is Bebe` Maurice, but we know better, don’t we?)

Well you’ve been waiting for him to make his debut appearance and now you must wait no longer! Huzzah!

Zank hebben…for leettle bears!

Panda On!

Fabulous Furry Friday

It’s Friday, and you know what that means! Time for our purported leader to drop another bombshell and then go golfing! Fortunately, while you are rending your garments and gnashing your teeth, we have some classic panda toons to share with you!

Since it is what I like to refer to as “The High Holy Week of the Birthday Season,” I’ll share some of my all time favorites!

and away we go!!!!

Since a week from today is the traditional “Black Friday” shopping extravaganza…

Black friday shopping tactics

Ah, fall…or something…is in the air!

Boopie and the pandas…

a morality tale…

Remember to tag your luggage!

…in several parts…

…but Boopie and the pandas live happily ever after. Ben does not.

In the words of Mehitabel: This is so disturbing on so many levels!

 

Don’t want to venture out into the soulless malls? Stock up on The Panda Chronicles Books for all your gift giving needs! Pandas are the gift that keep on giving!

Echoes of Comics History

As I was working on the last couple of installments of The Panda Chronicles, I had a little bit of a revelation. I’ve talked before about being influenced by several of the great well known, as well as the not so well known, cartoonists who have come before me. One of my favorites growing up was definitely Peanuts. The Sunday comics were the first thing I would read when the paper arrived, and I loved nothing better than Peanuts.

So, today’s ‘toon is a tribute: to Linus and Lucy Van Pelt, and their relationship, which gave me so much inspiration as I developed Pinky and Bubba’s personalities and interaction.

Maybe some day The Panda Chronicles will make comics history

Maybe Bubba is having a Halloween SEASON! Did you ever think of THAT, Pinky?

Panda On!
Thanks, Sparky!

The NSA Has Nothing on Pinky!

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!!!!

NSA

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!

Not even Robert Mueller could fight The Pinky Defense

Lawyers are in the news lately! Indictments are coming down the pipeline! Who will be next? Could it be MITTENS?????? Alas, that one is probably farther down the line. and besides, he will claim it was Crooked Pinky’s fault! She is the puppet of Pootin! (Oh…you haven’t met Pootin yet? I think he may make an appearance soon.) No one can break The Pinky Defense!

No one, I tell you! The Pinky Defense wins every time!

pinky defense

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

Panda On!

The Pinky Defense

Apologies for my absence from the pandasphere, but I have been updating my skills in the fine art realm! Yes, I’ve been taking another class in egg tempera, and while this has nothing to do with pandas, I am learning lots of fine arty stuff! Huzzah! For any of you out there who are also artists, you may know that the technique of egg tempera is an old one, and full of myths and mythology in its history and practice.

The class is taught by the extremely talented Koo Schadler, and if you’ve never heard of her, do take a look at her work; you’ll be glad you did. And not only is she a damn fine painter, she is a very generous human being, both with her knowledge (which is encyclopedic) and her personal warmth. If you are looking to expand your art skills in a supportive, information rich class, you can’t go wrong taking one of her classes.

But now! The Pinky Defense! I know you’ve been waiting!

Would YOU believe this panda?

Pinky is in trouble … Again!

Oh that Pinky! Trouble seems to follow her like a long streamer of toilet paper stuck to her paw. She would not get in nearly so much rouble if it weren’t for the Meihems yanking her chain and egging her on! If only there was some rational….some defense that she could call on..

Well, we’ll think about it and get back to you on Wednesday.

In the meantime, there’s no trouble like Pinky trouble!

trouble…trouble…trouble…It starts with “T” and that rhymes with “P” and that stands for Pinky!

Hmmm…maybe I need to do a pandacized version of The Music Man!

Panda On!

Mehitabel would like to register her protest about given the least sympathetic role in this adventure.

Is Pinky casting envious glances at Bee, The Bear’s magical wand?

Xiao Liwu has to journey to see the wizard

Okay, now it’s getting exciting! Scary parts dead ahead!

Mr Wu meets up with someone who looks a lot like his brother, shortly after setting out on his journey

I have a bad feeling about this….

Mr Wu hears a cry for help

Are you SURE there will be no flying monkeys? And Mr. Toasty is right! Who DOESN’T like bagels!

Tune in again on Sunday for the exciting conclusion of the All pandas Eve story, and next Friday for the conclusion of The Wizard of Wu!
