Yes, that’s right! We are approaching 31 Days of Pandas, a Panda Chronicles tradition since…um..well, I can’t remember when I started it. As with recent years past, I have a bit too much on my plate to bring you a new ‘toon every day, but just think of it as Fabulous Furry Friday EVERYDAY!!!!
I’ll still be posting new ‘toons on Sunday and Wednesday, as per usual, but on other days, I will share some of my favorites from the archives, and I think many of them are appropriate to the season. And who knows. I may be able to pop out an extra new ‘toon to two here and there.
There are so many new readers who haven’t yet become inundated acquainted with all the characters and story lines, so this is a good chance for you to catch up! It’s also a good time to remind you that Panda Chronicles books make the best Holiday presents!
But without further ado, here is the introduction and first installment of our newest feature presentation, the worldwideintergalactic third house from the corner premiere of: 101 BeBe Panda-Nation!
Wait…who did you say is the star?

BTW, you may have been hearing all this stuff about Net Neutrality and how it might go away. WTF is that, you might ask? Net Neutrality helps to ensure that little guys (like me) have as much access to the cyber waves as folks like…say…Facebook. If you think a level playing field is a GOOD thing, consider dropping your representative in Congress and the chairman of the FCC a line and tell them so.
What? Being Pinky means always having to say you’re sorry, but…um…rarely doing it. One of my faithful readers from across the pond (you know who you are!) came up with this phrase and I think I’m going to “borrow” it. (I can credit you by name if you’d like, or you can remain anonymous,) but looking back over the last year’s accumulation of ‘toons, I see that, once again, Pinky has hogged the spotlight. So stay tuned early next year as book 8 of The Panda Chronicles goes to print. and I think I’m gonna call it The Pinky Defense.
Because when you know you are in the wrong, is there any better defense than The Pinky Defense?
“It was just a suggestion” Huzzah! It’s the Meihems!
And did somebody mention Book 8 of the Panda Chronicles? Heh! What better time then now to make sure you have books 1 through 7 in your home library. Visit my book page and make sure your library is complete! And what better present could there be this year (especially this year!!!) than the gift of laughter? I mean besides a huge bag of money so that you could move to Canada or Sweden…
Nope, it just wouldn’t be an Institute for Contemporary Panda Satire fable, without an appearance of the cast on the extremely famous and popular (most popular show ever!!!) Mehitabel Tonite!!!show! Meet the pandas behind the seemingly true to life portrayal of the exciting tale, Being Endangered is SUCH a Curse!! Sometimes it’s hard to know what’s true and what’s not true!
Are we talking about alternative facts again?
Well, no, just a little fiction within a fiction, a tale told on a stormy night to calm little pandas as they listen to the wind howl. A tale to bring tranquility to pandas who are being buffeted by a political wind(bag) the blows evil onto the land.
But enough about the battle between good and ebil! Let’s meet the cast of Being Endangered is SUCH a Curse!
Remember what happened last Wednesday? You don’t? Well, you might want to scroll down past all those cute ‘toons about Six and Sebben, and review last Wednesday’s ‘toon. Go ahead, I’ll wait… Are we up to date now? Okay then! Not unlike all the people with love and hope in their hearts, and a commitment to inclusion for all people, they are showing up and standing up to the forces of hate and evil. Bubba is standing up to the evil POOF that has emanated from Pinky’s wand. There is power in love and hope, people. We have to believe that.
WE have to believe that there is a place in this country for all people, no matter their religion, their race, their choice of who they love, of who they believe they are. There is no room for hate and exclusion. We are all endangered if the factions that want to harm and exclude those who are considered “other” are allowed to succeed in spreading hate.
I’m betting on the power of Bubba and the power of love…
But all the power in the world is nothing compared to the power of Mommee!
See you on Wednesday, for the next exciting episode of Being Endangered is SUCH a Curse!!!
It is almost time for Six and Sebben’s FIRST BIRTHDAY!!!!! The second set of American born Panda Twins (from the pandas who brought you the Meihems!) are about to turn one year old! Huzzah! And in the panda birthday tradition that we started here at The Institute for Contemporary Panda Satire, we bring you a fabulous Furry Friday encore ‘toon presentation celebrating Six and Sebben!!!!
Bring on the panda birthday cakes!
Panda Trek 2: The Next Generation
As I was looking for ‘toons for this week’s round up, I realized I had not done any of the twins until January of 2017. Partly, I’ve become a little superstitious, and not wanting to do ‘toons about baby pandas until I’m reasonably sure they are healthy, but mostly, I think because I was…um distracted. You know what I’m talking about.
Anyway, onward with the cute baby pandas.
The little gift that keeps on giving!
Would it be such a bad thing?
It’s the year of the WUster!!!!
“Why can’t my children be as well behaved as Lun Lun’s,” mused Mei Xiang
Oh, brave new world, with such pandas in it!
baby pandas need their own magic bunnies to look out for them. We R endangered, you know.
Twinkies 2.0 put on a show!
And now…we continue with our feature presentation...Being Endangered is such a Curse!(on Sunday, of course!) Stay tuned to this station!
Oh dear! If even Bubba can’t dissuade Pinky from her evil plan, what hope is there for the world? Um…It’s possible I’m thinking about another situation instead of this one, but you know, unchecked power is unchecked power, if you know what I mean. We could maybe use Pinky’s magical wand to get us out of this one. Come on Pinky…use your magical wand for good, not evil.
If only her big brother hadn’t sent Pinky that magical wand …
Did Pinky just poof her little brother? Stay tuned!
Wait! You can’t just leave us here!
What happened to Bubba?????
Um…I guess you’ll have to tune in Sunday to find out, won’t you?
…but is he tough enough? He is an unlikely hero, to be sure. But his intentions are good and his heart is pure. He would do anything to defend his small cousins, Six and Sebben. But is Bubba a match for Pinky when she’s really, really mad? And what about her magical wand? It’s really powerful, you know!
We are about to find out if Bubba is made of something tougher than frosting!
Oh Bubba! Be careful!!!!
Oh no! What’s going to happen next? I guess you’ll have to tune in and find out, won’t you? Bwahahahahaha!
It’s about to happen! The moment of truth! The forces of good and evil are gathering and an epic battle is about to take place, right here in our nation’s capitol!!!! Um…I mean in the halls of the Kingdom of Pandalanta. Please excuse my confusion. It was an honest mistake, right? Something is going to hit the fan any minute now, and everyone is running for cover, lest they get splattered with you know what.
Actually, this could be true for either place, couldn’t it? But let’s continue with our feature presentation…
Being Endangered is SUCH a Curse!!!
Won’t someone save these innocent little pandas???
And hey! Today is Pinky’s actual birthday! What a great way to celebrate, right? Pinky contemplating an evil act! Well, it’s just a story, isn’t it? Isn’t it? Tune in Sunday (What? we have to wait till Sunday to find out what happens next?????) for the next exciting episode of Being Endangered is SUCH a Curse! Bwahahahahaha!
Panda On, as if our lives depend on it!

If you think being an endangered species is a piece of cake, (Hey! Did someone say CAKE????) you’ve got your head on backwards. And there is no one who is so endangered as someone who is Pinky’s little brother! Yep, we’re talking about Bubba, who has slipped beneath the table (with a plate of cuppycakes, along with his faithful toys, General Bub and Banky Pig.
And with only two days until Bubba’s actual birthday, it is only fitting that he emerges from under the table and shows himself to be the hero of this fractured fairy tale.
You wanna talk about endangered? I’ll show you endangered!!!!
The hero of our tale emerges…
Pinky says: BTW, tomorrow is solar eclipse day, so just a reminder, don’t look at it with unprotected eyes! You don’t want to go blind and miss all the rest of my ‘toons for all eternity, right? (It is all about ME after all!)
Oh my! What is going to happen now? This is getting kind of scary and I know I am going to get all kinds of flack for this, because I have put those adorable little munchkins, Six and Sebben in the path of Pinky’s ire, (not to mention her magical wand!!!!) But can you blame me? I mean this is a fairy tale for crying out loud! If there is a wicked witch, there has to be a handsome prince who comes and saves the day, right? Or in the case of Wonder Woman, a really kick-ass goddess warrior who comes right up against evil and attempts (and maybe even succeeds) to vanquish it! Oh Poot on you Pinky! Your evil plan will NEBBER succeed!
Or will it? Did you really think I would give away the ending already?
