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!

Day 21: 31 Days of Pandas

I know I am way too MEAN, to have two stories with scary bits and a whole lot of suspense going on at the same time. Well, all I can say to that is…



But! As promised, today, I bring you all the final chapters of It’s a WUnderful Life, so then you’ll only have ONE story to be worried and apprehensive about. Well, one panda story and the debacle in DC, where the GOP has just decided to take most of your money, your healthcare, and anything that is happy and give it to very wealthy people. Unless you are a very wealthy person yourself and then will you take me for a ride on your private airplane? Ahem.

But enough about the fall of Democracy and the desecration of the Constitution… Here’s the next episodes of It’s a WUnderful Life!!!

It's a Wonderful Life parody

Repeat after me, “It’s a story” ‘kay?

It's a Wonderful Life, parody

Everytime a bell rings, a panda gets a cuppycake.

It's a Wonderful Life, parody

Yay! The heartwarming schmoopy ending!

it's a wonderful life parody

A bear and his mom…together forever?

And now you know why Wu is such a well behaved, responsible panda, helpful and loving to all his little cousins! Unlike another panda we could name…

Speaking of Pinky, book editing and formatting is well underway for the next exciting Panda Chronicles Book release! I hope to have everything done by the end of the year, and then the uploading and approval process starts, so hopefully, I will have it ready by the beginning of February. Stay tuned for more news on The Pinky Defense: Book 8 of the Panda Chronicles!

I will also have a special ‘toon for Christmas Day, so don’t forget to check back here. I will have a very special Christmas carol for you to share with your family and friends! Huzzah!

Panda on as if your life depended on it!

Day 19: 31 Days of Pandas

A quick update

Several people contacted me today because they know I live in Western Washington. I was no where near the terrible accident that happened on the Seattle-Portland Amtrak route. (I’m not ducking blame, just wanted you to know that I am safely at home.) It must have been a horrifyingly scary event. The pictures send major chills up my spine. I know many people who travel the stretch of I-5 daily, as well as people (myself included) who regularly take the train from Seattle to Portland. My thoughts are with the people who were so terribly injured and frightened by this accident. The pictures are chilling.

Meanwhile, Mr. Wu learns what life would be like if there were no more baby pandas…

It's a Wonderful Life parody

What part of “you don’t exist” didn’t you get? Ha ha! I love that line!

it's a wonderful life parody

You won’t like this, Mr Wu!

It's a Wonderful Life Parody

Those darn cats! I really hated this part of “It’s a Wonderful Life” too.

Oh man! What is going to happen next????

Panda on!

Day 18: 31 days of Pandas

WE are tumbling head over paws towards the end of the year, the shortest day of the year, and Christmas too! The pandas have been working on a special Christmas Carol that they are eager to share with you. I think they will have rehearsed enough by Christmas. Hee Hee.

But now, it’s time to begin that most beloved of holiday classics…

It’s a WUnderful life!!!!

it's a wonderful life

Thank goodness Bee the Bear still has her magical wand from the last adventure.

It's a wonderful life

Wu is a good bear at heart….

Day 15: 31 Days of Pandas

A happy (if late) Fabulous Furry Friday Day 15 of 31 Days of Pandas!

The weather was too beautiful to stay indoors yesterday, so I did not get today’s post set up to launch in the wee hours. A beautiful day in mid December is a precious thing and ought not to be wasted!

You should also know that I am hard at work on compiling Book 8 of The Panda Chronicles!!! Huzzah! Since my process of writing and drawing the ‘toons is a bit by the seat of my pants, I always need to take some time to rearrange the actual physical cartoons into the order which they really should be, as opposed to the order they popped out of my head. All of my writer friends will tell you it’s all in the editing and revising.

Next week, we will start with that favorite Holiday Classic, It’s a WUnderful Life, starring Mr. Wu and Bee, the Bear, as the Christmas angel who shows Wu the error of his ways. But now, let’s dip into the ‘toons of last year, in honor of Doug Jones’ win in Alabama! Maybe all is not lost after all!


Are all these paper clips mine?


Whats a protest without pandas?


Hey, save some cuppycakes for me!

And here’s a photo I took at our own Million Pandas March in beautiful Langley on Whidbey Island. (Note: I am about in the middle of the crowd.)


Women’s March, Langley edition!

Panda On!!!!

Day 12: 31 Days of Pandas

We’re not even halfway through the month, so there are many more pandas to come!

This is a good thing, because we need LOTS of distractions this month. Between the disaster tax bill (email or call your Congress folks and ask them to vote NO!!!) the slide into the darkest days of the year, and all the craziness in the news, we need all the laughs we can get.

On top of all the nonsense coming out of our nations capitol, recent news of the illness of one of my long time panda fans and supporters has been on my mind. ALS is a devastating disease for which there is no cure. If it seems strange to be concerned about someone I’ve never met in real life, consider this: the people who read my ‘toons here and in books, and who frequently comment here or in conversations on Twidder and Fezbook, have become real to me. They have become real friends.

I’ve gotten to know them through our conversations in these cyber meeting places. They share pictures and stories of their lives. They cheer me on in my various Kickstarter projects. They have embraced these funny panda characters that have sprung forth from my head and they believe in them. They believe in me.  I am so very honored and grateful that you come here and tell me that the day’s ‘toon lifted your spirits, or made you sad, or pushed you to the edge of your seat in anticipation of the next episode.

So, Sandy H, if you are reading today’s post, please know that I have been grateful for the time you’ve been with me. I’m glad you have your family and puppies close at hand to see you through this. You will be missed.

Meanwhile, Let’s Get Some Pandas Out Here…

Friday was never so Fabulous …

…as this Friday, when my Kickstarter project to visit the panda ranches of China, is now about 60% funded, in less than 3 days. OMG!!!!!! If you haven’t visited yet, get on down to Kickstarter headquarters here! I am so thankful for all your support, and for the photos shared by some of my fellow Panda-trekkers that decorate my project page.

Update!!! Now 85% Funded!

Who could resist having lunch with a panda? (Actually, their table manners are terrible, but so are mine!)

But meanwhile, it is Fabulous Furry Friday and you know what that means…

Panda, panda, panda…bring on the pandas!!!!!

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

Part 1 of Bob and Mehitabel’s explanation…

What makes a panda run? Cuppycakes, of course!!!!

Babette and Bee, the Bear have a “discussion”

And while we are all…ahem…thinking about persons in power who may have been “misspeaking”….

Oh, Bob, you didn’t really say that, did you?

Early fake news?

Mehitabel did NOT approve this cartoon.

Archie, is that you?

We KNEW that was you!

I was really afraid this was going to happen.

You can’t fire a icon.

And don’t forget to check out my Kickstarter campaign! Pinky misses me!

Panda On!

And Now, for Something More Cheerful

We are tired of gloom and doom. As is my practice, I am getting this post ready in advance, so while in real time, it is still election day, by the time you see this, it will all be over but the shouting. And the suing. Rev up your attorneys! It’s gonna be a bumpy ride! I don’t know about you, but I could use something way more cheerful to read today, so I looked in the archives to find some of the funniest, most light hearted ‘toons I had.

Enjoy and feel cheerful!

Pandas aren't dopes!

Pandas aren’t dopes!

just in time for the upcoming onslaught...a visit to Bob's First campaign!

Huzzah for the Cake Party!


Or how about some cuppycakes?

Visit the Panda Ranch!

Visit the Panda Ranch!

What do you mean by "was?"

What do you mean by “was?”



Who says real life can't be funny?

Who says real life can’t be funny?

Well, That’s all for now! Stay tuned for more pandas and panda satire!

Be the Bear and have a Fabulous Furry Friday!
Bob T Panda

Note from the Panda in Chief: As I mentioned at the beginning of this post, it was assmbled before the election. As you may surmise, I am deeply distressed about the outcome of the election. Please take this group of lighthearted cartoons as a little respite from what ever anxiety, sadness, and fear you may now be feeling.

I don’t know how to process this news, or even how to go on, but I have been through bad times before, and this one is a doozy. Art is the way I process what I experience and feel. And so, the upcoming cartoons, with the exception of the next two (which were done before the election) may be…um…a little dark. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

I have to believe that we, as a nation will survive and maybe even thrive, even while I am not hopeful of that. Know that panda satire will prevail and will hopefully bring a bit of light into the darkness that surrounds us right now. Unless they arrest me. I guess that there is always that possibility.

Day 17: Everytime a Bell Rings

Oh my! The suspense here at 31 Days of Pandas is getting too much to bear…get it? Too much to…oh, never mind. You knew I had a weird sense of humor already, so no complaining in the cheap seats.

Let’s get back to it’s a Wunderful Life, shall we?

It's a Wonderful Life parody

Repeat after me, “It’s a story” ‘kay?

Everytime a bell rings, a panda gets a cuppycake.

Yay! The heartwarming schmoopy ending!

You didn’t think I was going to make you wait another day for the heartwarming schmoopy ending did you? what kind of bear do you think I am?

Don’t answer that!

And while you are doing your holiday shopping, why not add a Bee, the bear, mug to your collection! Yours for the asking (well, and your credit card) from Pandyland at CafePress!


Bee, the Bear

Bee, the Bear

and on the other side...

Be the Bear! and tune in for more pandy fun tomorrow and Saturday, with a brand new ‘toon on Sunday, starring…hmmmm could it be Pinky and Bubba? We’ll see!
