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!

Let’s celebrate baby pandas!

Um…I just returned from a 10 hour lunch. Should I be telling you this? This does remind me of yet another reason why I should schedule posts ahead of time, because you never know when you will be having so much fun at a lunch get-together, that then you will be invited for dinner too.

Ahem…

SO, LET’S BRING ON THE BABY PANDAS!!!!

The first appearance of the Meihems!

You can’t just DO stuff. You need instruction from an expert!

Happy 100th day Birthday! More frosting!

Feed me, Mama!

Hope you all have a happy Friday! May it be fabulous and furry!

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?

Panda On!

The Stars Have Dimmed

Before we get to the next episode of the KittySue and the Three Pandas saga, I want to take a moment to say farewell and remember a stalwart supporter of panda satire who has crossed over the bridge to the great beyond this week. I speak of RumpyDog, who has made the life of his typer (that’s what we call those who type on the computer, for those whose paws cannot navigate a keyboard) Jen T. and several kitties, richer a thousand times over.

Those of you with pets, know of what I speak. We know that they are here for such a short time, compared to our own lifespans, but they bring so much to our lives. Rumpy had his own blog where he wrote about animal welfare issues, and life with a household full of cats. He even made a guest appearance here once or twice. Rumpy lived a good life once he found his forever home and he will be missed by all who knew him. Even the cats.

Run free, Rumpy. We won’t forget you.

Huzzah for Rumpy Dog!

Meanwhile, back at the pandas’ cottage…

Can she really DO that????

Oh my! I am on the edge of my seat, and only 2 more episodes to go!!!

How will it all end????

Meanwhile, I’ve made a change or two here. You can read the account of my pandapiphany, which is now public. Just hover the mouse over the Cast and Crew heading at the top of the page and another hidden page listing will appear, called From Pandapiphany to Princess Pinky
click on that and you can read an illustrated account of my journey into panda satire. It includes VERY early drawings that have not ever been published here. Enjoy!

From time to time, people have suggested that I put a link on the blog so that they could contribute to panda satire. I’ve thought about opening a Patreon account, but ultimately decided that it would be like running a full time Kickstarter campaign, and really, I felt it would result in far more whining than I really wanted to do. I recently set up a PayPal.me account as a way to do remote sales. As an experiment, I decided to set up a link so that if people wanted to, they could make small donations to this blog.

Using the public radio model, where  content is provided for free, and if people enjoy it, they can chose to support it, if they are able to do so. I feel strongly that anyone should be able to read my cartoons for free, and not have paid subscriptions or annoying ads on my site. (Well, other than me whinging to you about Buy My Books! every now and again. But you know…a bear has to buy the occasional cuppycake and pay the mortgage on her cave.)

Look for the surrealistic panda with a cuppycake in the sidebar to the right, click on it, and it will take you to my PayPal.me thingie.

Follow the panda. or the cuppycake, to support panda satire!

See you on Wednesday for the next exciting episode of the KittySue and the Three Pandas saga!

Episode 10: The Discovery of KittySue

Quick! Go upstairs! Rescue Banky Pig and General Bun! The discovery of KittySue is sure to be shocking to the panda family! What with the devastation in the kitchen of the pandas’ cottage, who knows what horrors will be waiting for them upstairs!

What discovery is waiting for them upstairs? Isn’t the devouring of Babee bear’s cuppycake bad enough????

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!

episode

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!!!

Fabulous Furry Friday

hmmm…well….We’ve already done an encore presentation about the Panda Season of Love, aaaannd, Easter is over, so, I know! WE will do a Fabulous Furry Friday random pick! And you can always ask for replays of your favorite “toons (if I can find them, or if I remember!)

Here’s today’s Fabulous Furry Friday Favorites!

Here’s a selection from March of 2015!

Um…pass the beer and poutine, please!

Okay…maybe ONE ‘toon from the Panda Season of Love!

We KNEW that was you!

I was really afraid this was going to happen.

Now where did that cat go?

Despite the fact that Bob is still wearing his vacation outfit, he’s back and ready to report!

But maybe you should be careful what you admit to, Pinky.

Mehitabel! Can you take a meeting?

Yo, don’t bogart that agenda, boys, pass it over to me….

Panda On!

Episode 8: You are getting sleepy

There are many similarities between cats and pandas, not the least of which is that they both spend a lot of time sleeping. In fact, I feel a bit sleepy myself, and think maybe it is time for a nap, don’t you think?

If you are just joining our story now, here are some quick links back to the earlier episodes. If you’re anything like me (and why wouldn’t you be???) you prefer binge watching a series rather than having to wait a week for the the next episode to air. Not to mention, I’m way too cheap to pay for cable, or even Netflix, so I get most of my TV series and movies from the library.

But now, on to Episode 8 of KittySue and the Three Pandas! Don’t get sleepy on me now!

UNHAND MR. BUN THIS INSTANT!

Don’t go away now! There are five more episodes yet to come, not to mention several Fabulous Furry Friday round ups! And then I have to figure out more things for pandas to make fun of! Huzzah!

Episode 7: KittySue has boundary issues

Oh my! KittySue does appear to have some boundary issues doesn’t she? Well, you know how cats are! Although she does have a point about the sleeping arrangements. In defense of the pandas, even though panda rental is very expensive, the pandas generally do not have discretionary access to these funds. What’s up with that?

But let’s get going on our story! What is KittySue up to NOW???

boundary issues

unauthorized search and seizure is SOOOO tiring!

Meanwhile, if you are interested in the fine art doings of the panda clan, the spring awakening of the Froggwell Blog is here! You can head here to find out all the fine art news that is happening in this corner of the bamboo forest!

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….

Panda On!
