Episode 9: KittySue Discovered?

Oh my ears and whiskers! I can hardly stand the suspense! Could KittySue really be after Banky Pig? Are they going to check for finger prints? What kind of insurance do pandas have? What does this episode have in store for the three pandas?

Watch episode 9 and find out for yourself!

Is this episode exciting? you bet it is!

I hope everyone had a good Earth Day! Pandas would like to remind you that being endangered is no laughing matter. If you are interested in helping actual pandas, we can recommend two wonderful organizations that would appreciate your support in supporting pandas. Pandas International is a long time friend to bears, and another organization that we are particularly impressed by is PDX Wildlife, who does scientific research about…are you ready for this?…PANDAS!!!! Check them out and maybe slip them a few bucks to assist with their research.

Remember, science is real, and without pandas, there could be no panda satire. Thank you to scientists and all who marched yesterday in support of science. Huzzah for you all!!!

Here Comes Easter Panda!*

With apologies to Deborah Underwood, whose series of picture books inspired by her cat, Bella Underwood, features a character called (appropriately enough) Cat. Among the titles is Here Comes Easter Cat, and if you’re looking for a book for the favorite child in your life, I can recommend this series wholeheartedly. Although, if you wanted to write a book about the Easter Panda, Deborah, I think I know some people who would enjoy it.  And speaking of the Easter Panda ….

The panda kindergarten has been very, very good….mostly.

What’s Black and White and carries cuppycakes in a basket?

Easter

A tiskitt a taskitt , a great big wheelie basket!

Alas…Easter is not the only event on the horizon…Tax Day approaches, as well….

Taxes

Uh oh…it’s the Pinky Revenue Service!

Will Bob ever learn? will Mehitabel ever get the better of the panda kindergarten?

Along with everything else that’s been going on in the world, (stop bombing stuff, Donny! Making things go BOOM is not especially presidential!!!!) Last week marked to 3rd anniversary of the death of my very dear friend, Jude. It definitely adds insult to injury that she’s not here to talk us down off the ledge during these trying times. I wrote this cartoon for her, to make myself feel better (as if!!!!) and in hopes that in heaven, everyone gets their own panda.

day

As you know, pandas are big fans of Shakespeare.

And one last note…maybe they could get the panda kindergarten to show the White House how to have an Easter Egg Hunt….

Episode 6: What fresh horror awaits?

Oh…you thought I was talking about the current news when I said what fresh horror awaits?

Ha ha! I have no idea how you made that mistake. I was talking about what’s going on in the cozy cottage of the three pandas and what the diabolical KittySue is up to in the aforementioned cozy cottage.

We’re on the edge of our seats! No more accounts of any stupid dreams you are having about cake! On with the show!

Episode 6: KittySue and the Three Pandas, coming right up!

what fresh horror

…and she ate the just right cuppycake all up!

Episode 5: KittySue and the 3 Pandas

Oh my! What is going to happen next in the home of the pandas ? Stay tuned and find out…

But first, I had the weirdest dream last night. I’m not really sure what brought it on, but if anyone wants to try their hand at dream interpretation, have at it! So here’s what I can remember: I was at some big event, involving some sort of community, holiday dinner, but there weren’t many people there. I went to the dessert and coffee line to get some cake (!) but the guy behind the counter kept ignoring me. They started putting away all the cakes, but I still hadn’t gotten mine.

I said, “What about MY cake?” and he finally grudgingly cut a very large piece of cake, and tried to charge me, but I was pretty sure I had already paid. He did give me the cake, and then I turned to leave, trying to remember where my car was. Someone offered to show me a short cut but after we went through a tunnel, we were in a totally different town and my car was nowhere to be seen. I went back through the tunnel, but the cafe was gone and I was even more lost.

I then had to go through tiny doorways, crazy, precarious looking stairways, and then some sort of attic-y looking area with cats and who knows what else. I think this is where I woke up. I never found my car, and I think I lost the cake.

Go figure!

And now, for today’s episode of KittySue and the 3 Pandas!!!!

unhand…um…unpaw that cuppycake!

BTW, the Whidbey Island gallery that represents my work is moving to Langley from their location of 9 years at The Greenbank Farm. They are conducting a fund raising campaign to help them with the move. You can learn all about it here. Thanks for checking it out and helping if you can.

 

Episode 3: KittySue & the 3 Pandas

Oh, the suspense is REALLY starting to build now! Let’s just jump right in with the next episode  of KittySue and the 3 pandas! We are not fooling!

You know how this story goes…or at least you think you do! Bwahaha!

Spring Back, Fall Forward

Hey! Guess what’s coming up this Sunday morning in the teeny tiny hours when all good little pandas are asleep? That’s right! It’s time to Spring Forward…um…or is that Spring Back? I can never remember! whatever it is, I can pretty much guarantee that I will either be an hour early or an hour late for yoga on Sunday morning!

So let’s start our Fabulous Furry Friday encore presentation with this classic of panda satire!!!!

Bob explains daylight savings time to the panda kindergarten

spring back, fall forward?

And if it’s time to turn the clock forward, it means we are nearing the end of the annual Panda Scout cookie Sale!

On my honor, I will try…to eat as many cookies as I possibly can….

And that means, Easter is right around the corner…

What’s Black and White and carries cuppycakes in a basket?

A tiskitt a taskitt , a great big wheelie basket!

And…um…don’t forget, I have a new book out!!!!

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!

One of these years I need to do a groundhog day cartoon!

There has been a disturbance in the force

It was bad enough that we lost David Bowie, Alan Rickman, and so many other great talents last year, including Carrie Fisher (and her mom, Debbie Reynolds!) but the final insult to injury was the loss of my beloved cat, Mehitabel. She has been a part of my life and a part of my art since before I can remember, well…at least for the last 20 years. The force was strong in that cat, and she pretty much had me wrapped around her dainty little paws.

Because she was such a part of my life and such an important member of my cast of characters here at the Panda Chronicles, I decided that she would remain here. After all, I am not letting go of Pinky or the Meihems, despite their recent (Meihems) and impending (Pinky) departure to China. So Mehitabel will remain, in a somewhat metaphysical state. After all, SOMEONE has to keep all those pandas in line!

Hey, it’s my cartoon, I can have anyone I want in it, okay???

Sorry I’m “late”

I just read of a cartoonist who has found a way to use her talent to contribute to some of her favorite non profits. It really is pretty brilliant, and so I am going to say a big, pandy thank you to her, and then STEAL HER IDEA!!!!! I have been feeling the pain of not having the resources to donate meaningfully to these organizations, and this is a way to see if I can make a difference.

So here’s the deal:
Donate $50 to either the ACLU or Planned Parenthood and get a signed copy of a cartoon, with a hand drawn sketch on it.
Donate $100 to either the ACLU or Planned Parenthood and get 2 signed cartoons with a hand drawn sketch on them.
Donate $500 to either the ACLU or Planned Parenthood and get an original hand drawn cartoon of my* choice (unframed) (* you can tell me who your favorite panda characters are and I will make a selection based on that info)

Just send me a screenshot of your donation receipt dated between January 31st and February 28th, along with your mailing address, and I will send them out as I receive them. US addresses only, please. Send info/receipt to yourbrainonpandas@gmail.com. Let’s see if we can raise some $$ for these organizations! Pandas are standing by!

 

 

 

The Year of the Rooster

Yes, Chinese New Year, otherwise known as the Lunar New Year, starts tomorrow (January 28th, 2017) and continues until February 15th! This is the year of the Rooster. That sounds harmless, right? How much trouble can the panda kindergarten get into dressed up like chickens?

It was interesting to read this article, because I was unaware of some of the traditions associated with this event. Like, you’re not supposed to do any cleaning the first three days of the New Year, because you could wash away good fortune. Well, I can live with that. Um…I hardly ever clean anything. Was that too much information?

Anyway, we’ll have a brand new ‘toon for you on Sunday, but for today’s encore presentation, I thought I would post some of my favorite Chinese new year ‘toons from years past.

Huzzah!

The year of the bunny…..

Oh that panda kindergarten!

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

Look out!!!! Oh, those triplets!

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

And, of course, my personal favorite…

the year of the dragon, panda kindergarten

Huzzah! it’s the year of the Dragon!

Have a fabulous furry Friday!

Day 10: 31 Days of Pandas

I’m late! I’m late! I don’t know what happened to me yesterday, but I just couldn’t compel myself to get today’s post ready yesterday, and deciding it was more important to finish the new ‘toons, I decided to delay, but not delete! So onward, with day 10 of 31 days of pandas!

Mini Bob at London’s Cartoon Museum

31 days

Mini Bob is such a rebel! (notice no photography notice)

Comics are really big in Europe and Great Britain. I’ve visited cartoon museums in Brussels, Belgium in addition to this one. There are several museums in the US, including a really big collection at Ohio State University, The Billy Ireland Cartoon Library and Museum. This is definitely on my “places to visit” list! Mini Bob insisted on being photographed here, despite the “No Photography” sign. He is such a rebel! Like the museum we visited a few years ago in Belgium, this one had a wonderful display of political cartoons, going back a couple hundred years. Just saying!

Panda On!
