Finale: KittySue and the Three Pandas

Oh my! What a dramatic ending after a wild ride! Do not mess with pandas! You will be sorry. Pandas are not joking around (or so I’ve heard.)

Nothing like drying laundry in the sun to get rid of …um…unpleasant stains and odors. Pandas take note.

What a lovely day for the 3 pandas to relax at home!

If you want to read all of the KittySue and the Three Pandas story from the beginning, start here!

Panda Satire update!

I want to give you, my long suffering  most loyal fans a heads up. In barely a months time I will be launching a Kickstarter campaign to raise some of the money for a trip to China, that has been in the… what if…should we,… hey, do you want to… stages of planning for going on about 2 years. Yes, Bob T Panda is going to go to China and frolic with toddler pandas.

This will be both a fine art and panda satire expotition, and besides frolicking with baby pandas, I will be busy sketching and photographing not only pandas, but also the landscape, architecture and people of China. I generally come back from a trip like this with renewed creativity, and a barrel full of source material.

Stay tuned for project launch news! I’m expecting to be ready to launch the project by June 7th.

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 Presents…

Hmmm… I had an idea the other day, but I seem to have misplaced it. That will teach me to write things down more often, especially when I have an idea! Fabulous Furry Friday comes but once a week, but you can read panda satire anytime. Well, if you have my books, you can, or even if you just pop into the archives and root around in there!

Did you know that Children’s Book Week is coming up on May 1st? Well, even if you didn’t know, it is! Huzzah! And even if you don’t have any children sitting around cluttering up the living room, you are never too old to enjoy books written for children. When I am feeling a little unsettled or fluffy around the edges, there is nothing more soothing than sitting down with my copy of Winnie the Pooh or any of the picture books I have been collecting for the last 8 years.

What are your favorite books for children (and the child still in you?)

The irony of Mehitabel criticizing Pooh Bear for his wardrobe, does not escape me.

I’m not sure Mehitabel has anything to talk about.

What will Christopher Robin say about this?

Bob’s first foray into the realms of literature …

is it….

…time for….

…a little something?

Heh!

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.

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!!!!

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!
