The Year of the Fabulous Furry Friday

Since Chinese New Year is nigh, I thought this week’s Fabulous Furry Friday round-up would serve the panda-satire loving public well by revisiting our previous Salutes to Chinese New Year by the panda kindergarten! Huzzah! Let’s get good and ready to celebrate the Year of the Dog!

Because Nobody Expects the Panda Kindergarten!

It Seems like Chinese New Year Should be Happening Soon

I’m not very good at keeping track of dates (other than my own Birthday Season) so I don’t know exactly when Chinese New Year is, but I did hear through the grapevine that it is The Year of the Dog in the Chinese zodiac calendar. Feel free to let me know what the actual date is! (I know some of you are much better at keeping track of this stuff than I am.) But no matter the actual date! The Panda Kindergarten is ready with their annual Chinese New Year Celebration!!!

Huzzah for the Chinese New Year: The Year of the Dog!

How much is that doggie in da window…

Panda on!

Announcing: The 2018 Torch Bears

Move over Giant Panda Global Awards! THIS is where the money is! The Torch Bears ! The most coveted honor in all of Pandyland is to be selected as Torch Bears for the Panda Olympic Games! Needless to say, the competition is very fierce and there is ample opportunity for skullduggery!

I can hardly STAND the suspense! Tell us, won’t you please, who will be this year’s Torch Bears …

The Panda Olympics presents…

Okay…we are going to keep you in suspense just a little while longer! But never fear! We will tell you…um…sooner or later!

BTW, Did anyone watch Bebe Maurice’s debut yesterday? I believe Pinky has some serious competition in the attitude/icon department. Just saying.

Cue the Torch Bears!

As we prepare to launch another stellar performance in the Panda Olympics, we have a few more encore antics from the Torch Bears! As you may recall from several years ago, the torch bears attempted to replace their torches with something that would look sort of “torchy” from a distance, because they had…um…sold the torches on eBay before they actually lit the Olympic flame.

Oopsie. That could have happened to anyone!!!!

But before we have a visit with the torch bears, here’s a link to my latest post for The Whidbey Island Arts Council. It’s a modern retelling of Cinderella, to get folks in the mood for an event on the island next week: The Bohemian Ball. The story is a bit long, but I hope you’ll read it and that you enjoy it! Cheers. And if you’re on or near Whidbey Island next Thursday, maybe you’ll put on your dancing shoes, fire up the magic carriage, and party like a panda! (Author’s disclosure: There are no pandas in this story, but there is a cat)

Now….Cue the Torch Bears!!!!

Pandanastics star, PO of Atlanta Zoo, practices for the Olympics, while the Torch Bears continue their around the world journey. Where will they turn up next? Note: this ‘toon was written before Pinky poofed Po and the Meihems into becoming girls.

but now what will they do when they get to the Olympics?…..stay tuned!

Wait…what little Paris incident???…Oh…this one…

Never underestimate the power of a good “fart joke”

Stay tuned for the exciting conclusion of this story!

Oh, those Torch bears!

In other VERY IMPORTANT news, the proof copy of The Pinky Defense is on it’s way, so I hope to be able to have My Pinky’s new book available by the end of the month. And remember, Mitten’s definitely does not want you to buy this book! You know what to do!

Fabulous Furry Friday: an Encore Presentation

I love fabulous Furry Friday and the encore presentation idea. Yes, it’s a way to post a third dose of panda satire, without having to do…um…any more work, but readers tell me they love it because it’s fun to see their favorite ‘toons again, while those who are new to the world of panda satire get a chance to get acquainted with the gang!

As this is a year when the Winter Olympics are being held, I thought we should take a couple of Fabulous Furry Friday look backs to Panda Olympics of years past.

Bring on the torch bears!

The first appearance of the Torch Bears!

but now what will they do when they get to the Olympics?…..stay tuned!

Did the Torch Bears take a wrong turn????

Is that the twins I see before me? Don’t tell Lun Lun

Day 31: 31 Days of Pandas & The Final Chapter of…

101 Bebe Panda-Nations!!!!

Did you ever think we’d get to the end of 31 Days of Pandas, let alone the end of this year? Not to flog an orange horse (because we don’t believe in hitting things) but I think the turn of the new year will not bring us any immediate release from the toxic cloud we are living under. To those that are resisting the evil that is afoot, stay strong. Take care of yourself; keep fighting for fairness, kindness, support of the planet, and all those who exist on it.

Keep being the bears! (And keep reading panda satire!!!!)

And now, the final episode of 101 Bebe Panda-Nations!

Happy New Year’s Eve and a (Im)peachy New Year!

Hope you get to party like it’s 1999! (With the panda kindergarten!)
Panda On!

Day 29: 31 Days of Pandas

Before there was Pinky, there was…the panda kindergarten!!

Oh me, oh my! The pandasphere is buzzing tonight! will Pinky win her division in the Global Giant Pandy Awards? Did Bubba get what he wanted for CrispMoss? What will happen when Pinky, the Meihems, Wu, and all the rest get home from their adventure? Will EVERYONE get grounded?

I guess you’ll have to tune in on Sunday for the conclusion of our story!

But in the meantime (and for the next few days) it’s STILL 31 Days of Pandas time!!!!

What could be more scottish than Pandas?

And it’s never too early to start getting ready for New Year’s Eve!

The panda kindergarten at their best…or is that worst?

Day 28: 31 Days of Pandas

Only four more days of pandas! Oh my! But never fear, we will still be here when the clock chimes midnight on the 31st, with new ‘toons for the New Year! Huzzah! Before long, the resolutionists* will be clogging up my yoga class (*people who resolve to start going to yoga again, after 9 months or more of not showing up), crowding the vegetable and health food aisles at the grocery store and leaving the cookie aisle vacant. (Bwahahaha! More for me!!!!)

So here are the things that I resolve for the new year:

  1. Eat more frosting. There is no reason not to if we are all going to die in a nuclear apocalypse; our healthcare is gone, as is all government support for those in need.
  2. Resist  evil where ever it lifts it’s ugly head.
  3. Eat more frosting.
  4. Keep drawing pandas, and letting them speak their minds.
  5. Eat more…um…frosting.
  6. Get to yoga on time so a resolutionist does not take my spot.
  7. Eat more….you guessed it! Frosting!!!!!!

The panda kindergaten knows where you live.

You say you want a resolution, well, you know, it is hard to change a bear….

Day 26: 31 Days of Pandas

It’s Boxing Day, which is the day that, by tradition, Pandas all sit in boxes! Interestingly enough, cats like to sit in boxes too, which is why pandas are also referred to as “bear cats.” Um…you might want to check some other sources, as science is not my forte. (neither is math, just so you know.)

Meanwhile, It’s time to share more pandas from the archives for 31 Days of Pandas!

Huzzah! Sometimes it’s also about cats!

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

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

…except when it is about Pinky.

Can you believe those Meihems? blaming everything on Pinky?

Happy 100th day Birthday! More frosting!

And this is where we were at, at the end of 2015!!!!

Consider this my Werld Peez Pandifesto

God Rest Ye Merry Gentle Bears: Day 24: 31 Days of Pandas

Well, I was going to wait until tomorrow to share this ‘toon’s tune with you, but Mr. Badger pointed out that Christmas Eve is the time more associated with singing Christmas carols, so, in order to encourage you to add this parody of God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen to your repertoire, I share it here, both in the ‘toon (which is abbreviated both by space and by the fact that the 4th verse came to me after I’d already drawn the ‘toon) and in the unabridged text so you can print out the words and share it with your caroling friends!

Huzzah! Strike up the band and sing along…

Oh curse ye vile trumpy men,
You’re causing me dismay,
The world went dark, I lost all hope
On last election day.
What you don’t like you call fake news, the truth has gone astray,

Oh tidings of treason and greed
Treason and greed,
Oh, tidings of treason and greed.

Oh curse ye vile trumpy men,
The western world’s appalled.
While you distract the Congress acts
to impoverish us all.
You sold us out for Putin’s power
and you come when he calls…

Oh tidings of treason and greed,
Treason and greed,
Oh, tidings of treason and greed.

Oh curse ye vile trumpy men,
Your reign is going to fail.
In time your crimes will all come out
No matter how you flail
Bob Mueller’s going to find the truth
and you will go to jail…

Oh tidings of treason and greed,
Treason and greed,
Oh, tidings of treason and greed.

Oh curse ye vile trumpy men
Your heartlessness astounds.
When taking healthcare from the poor
Your joy it knows no bounds,
and white supremacists and nazis are the friends you found…

Oh tidings of treason and greed,
Treason and greed,
Oh, tidings of treason and greed.

You’re welcome.

And now, sing along with the panda kindergarten!

Oh tidings of treason and greed. (To the tune of God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen)

Tune in tomorrow for the next episode of 101 Bebe Panda-Nations!

Be the bear
