Okay, Now REALLY announcing the Torch Bears

Sorry for the false anticipation, for leading you on, leading you astray. Wait a minute! I’m proud to lead you astray, in a good pandy sort of way, of course! Today I am REALLY going to reveal who the Torch Bears for 2018 are! Honest! But first (OOOO! I KNEW she was going to do this!!!!) If you haven’t read my latest fractured fairy tale over on The Whidbey island Arts Council blog, you should do it NOW.

And now, without any further ado about nothing, Here are the TORCH BEARS!!!!

Uh oh! has there been Russian tampering with the selection of the Torch Bears?

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!

The Torch Bears! Lost at Sea?

I know in the “real world” that the Olympics have actually already started, but please bear with us, and indulge me in the thought that the Olympics are just about to begin.

Where, oh where have the torch bears gone?

Stay tuned for the exciting conclusion of this story!

 

Be the bear!

Where are the Torch Bears?

The 2012 Olympics are poised to begin and the torch bears are nowhere to be found.  Never fear…they are on their way.  For those of you who are new to the all panda frolic (OK, Mehitabel and one cat) that is The Panda Chronicles, here is a little background on the Torch Bears, who first appeared in 2008, when the summer games were held in China.  The pandas took those games by storm and they haven’t lost their taste for Olympic Gold!

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

The Torch Bears Reveal their “Enterprising” Personality

Once again, a story has come across the airwaves that is just ripe for panda satire.  And, as you know, we at the Institute for Contemporary Panda Satire can NEVER resist such a good story.  It just makes me proud to be a cartoonist.  The story of former Olympic torch bearers selling their torches on Ebay is one such story.  Believe me, I am NOT making this up.

It’s all in the timing…..

Be the Bear!

While we wait for the arrival of the Scottish pandas….

Of course we know that Tian Tian and Yang Guang are not actually Scottish,  I mean, it’s not like they are some exotic variation on Scottish Terriers, after all.  But still, our heart starts to go pitter patter just a bit when we think of pandas gracing the British Isles once again.  As you know, pandas have trod these paths before, and not so very long ago at that.  Am I speaking of Chi Chi, who lived at the London Zoo from 1958 until her death in 1972?  Why no! I’m speaking of the Torch Bears recent visit to Westminster Cathedral to start their round the world journey back to London for the 2012 (Panda) Olympic Games!

Be the Bear!
