Mehitabel would like to register her protest about given the least sympathetic role in this adventure.

Tune in again on Sunday for the exciting conclusion of the All pandas Eve story, and next Friday for the conclusion of The Wizard of Wu!

Panda on and pass the candy corn!

Have a fabulous Furry Friday!

It’s time for another Holiday Classic: The Wizard of Wu!

Every time I reread The Wizard of Wu, I am enchanted all over again! I remember watching The Wizard of Oz every year around Halloween, and I was always terrified by the flying monkeys, by the evilness of the wicked Witch of the West, the whole idea that you could be whisked away by a tornado and wake up in a frightening new world.

So, after our re-broadcast of A Halloween Carol, I thought we should also have an encore presentation of that other holiday classic, The Wizard of Wu, for our Fabulous Furry Friday presentations! (Be on the look out for some cameo appearances for the newest junior pandas on the US panda scene!)

Huzzah!

where happy pandas eat bamboo, oh why, oh why, can’t…Wu?

We’re in for it now, Binky!

Hang on to your hats, kids, it’s gonna be a bumpy ride!

I don’t think we’re in Pandiego any more, Binky….

What could be waiting outside? Where the heck ARE we, Binky?

Panda On

Day 8, 31 Days of Pandas

Huzzah! We are back again for 31 Days of Pandas, and our encore presentation of The Wizard of Wu! Yesterday, the Wicked Cat Witch of the West sent her henchpandas out to capture Wu and his magical bunny slippers! Will they succeed? Let’s find out!

The panda kindergarten captures Mr Wu

Evilness is one thing, but there must be snacks!

escape from the wicked witch

Well,lookee here! isn’t that….?

Uh oh! Am I going to leave you with only two more episodes to go? Well, yes I am. Bwahahahaha! Will the identity of the wizard be revealed? will wu get home safely? will there be cuppycakes for all?

Tune in tomorrow to see if all has ended happily! although, if you already had The Book of Wu, you would know the answer to these questions. Just saying.

Be the Bear,

Day 7, 31 Days of Pandas

31 Days of Pandas now continues with The Wizard of Wu!

We hope you have been enjoying this concentrated dose of pandy goodness. If you have been enjoying it, I hope you will share our stories with your friends. They might not know they are pandaholics (yet) but I believe that everyone with a sense of humor has the potential to embrace their inner panda.

And now, on with the show! On Saturday, We left Wu and his intrepid companions here:

the good witch saves Wu and Co.

Good witch Bee, the Bear, to the rescue!

Xiao Liwu gets a bath

Are you SURE you weren’t in an earlier scene?

Wizard of Oz spoof

But we’ve come such a long way already….Bwahahaha!

although I DID promise there would be NO flying monkeys…

Ride you pandas! Ride!

What could be scarier than the panda kindergarten on tricycles!?!

See you again tomorrow for Day 8 of 31 Days of Pandas and the next installment from our encore presentation of The Wizard of Wu!

Day 4, 31 Days of Pandas

Well, not only is it 31 Days of Pandas, it is also Fabulous Furry Friday. We like to have some extra panda goodness to get us in the right frame of mind for the weekend. I mean, if you have a weekend and aren’t working all weekend or something unpleasant like that.  Wait a minute….I’m working this weekend.

Well, maybe there will be time for a cuppycake.
I thought I would share a ‘toon or two about the early day’s of Pinky, since she has been sneaking in some appearances to The Wizard of Wu…

National Zoo cub makes mom Mei Xiang disappear

oops. Pinky gets her magical wand!

Princess Pinky is fooled by Mei Xiang at the National Zoo

Oh Princess Pinky, mom has a trick or two up her paw, I think…Bubba had best keep that in mind!

And now, continuing with our feature encore presentation of The Wizard of Wu

I have a bad feeling about this….

Are you SURE there will be no flying monkeys?

That cat is pure evil!

Mehitabel soaks Mr Toasty

Sorry, no photo bomb from princess Pinky. her mother thought todays cartoon was too scary for her

Wow! Mr Wu and his friends are in a tight spot!

As it is Fabulous Furry Friday, AND the middle of the holiday shopping season, We feel compelled to add a little reminder that not only books make  great presents, but so do “Vote for Pinky” and “Vote for Bob” goodies from our store at Pandyland. Not to mention prints from Pandamorphosis, available here! Consider yourselves informed! You can always find the links on our home page, too.

Until tomorrow!
Be the Bear,

#7 Mr Wu Wednesday: Even with NO Flying Monkeys, it’s Scary

Oh dear, I just can’t look.  You look and tell me what’s happening! Is Mr Wu OK?  Are you on the edge of your seat?

Good.

The wicked cat of the west attacks Mr Toasty

That cat is pure evil!

I know, I know, I’m introducing the bucket of water too early, and the witch is supposed to be afraid of water.  I could have had Mr. Toasty’s bread catch fire, but somehow, I didn’t think he’d recover from that.

It’s Mr Wu Wednesday! Look out Mr Wu!

This is the part in the movie version, that stars the girl and a dog, where I put my head under the covers and don’t come out till…well, you know, the end part where Dorothy finds out it was all a dream.

We did promise that there would be no flying monkeys, but we didn’t promise that it wouldn’t be scary.  Just sayin’

Mr Wu hears a cry for help

Are you SURE there will be no flying monkeys?

The adventure continues!

Mr. Wu continues his adventure in the mysterious land of….

…well, we don’t actually know where this land is, but it sure isn’t Pandiego, or even Kansas, for that matter.   From Mr Wu’s former black and white world, he enters a land of ..um…well, it’s still glorious black and white, but if I ever had the time to do it as a full color picture book, this is when we would shift to glorious color!

There are some folks in this strange new world that Mr Wu will meet that remind him of those he knows back in the real world, including some that he considers interlopers into his world domination of cuteness. Sigh.  Are even our dreams and fantasies subject to all those annoying elements of our life that we would like to escape?

Apparently so….

Don’t I know you from somewhere?

Aren’t you glad we’ve returned to Mr Wu’s adventure? (although we can’t exactly promise that we won’t comment on current events…in fact there could be some similar events taking place in the land of Wu….)

Meanwhile, we seem to have resolved our technical difficulties of Monday. It seems I used a picture with the wrong 3 letters at the end.  Sigh. That’s what happens when you are a bear on the run. I’ll try to pay more attention!

PS: I’m devastated to say that I was not selected to win the all expenses paid trip to Atlanta to be present at the naming ceremony of the Atlanta Twin pandas.  I guess that makes it okay for me to continue to call them Bert and Ernie.
