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!

The next episode! 101 Bebe Panda-Nations!

We are getting down to the end of the year, to the end of 31 Days of Pandas (SAD!!!!!!) and hopefully the end of the tRump reign of terror. Well, I might be jumping the gun on that one. Remember, it took 2 whole years to build the case against Nixon. Have faith, panda fans! After all, Mr. Mueller belongs to society of people named BOB, and that is exalted company indeed! Heh!

So, without further ado, let’s watch the next episode of 101 Bebe Panda-Nations!

How about that! Pinky DID save the day!

We hope you’ll come back for three more days of encore presentations for 31 Days of Pandas and then Sunday we’ll have the final episode of 101 Bebe Panda-Nations! Huzzah! Let’s put our paws together and make a wish for a kinder, gentler world. Yeah, yeah, I know. Well, at least let’s resolve to watch more panda videos. Here’s one of my favorites of pandas being ESPECIALLY helpful! Enjoy!

Panda On!

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

Panda On!
Don’t let us down, Mr. Mueller!

Episode 10: 101 Bebe Panda-Nations

And a Merry Christmas to you all!

My Saturday routine, for sometime, is to head up to my panda studio while still wearing my PJ’s, coffee in paw, and listen to NPR while I work on the weeks cartoons, by this time in the week, finishing up inking the previously penciled pages.

I was surprised this morning to hear a broadcast of The Vinyl Cafe, which was the last recorded and previously un-aired Christmas show, shortly before the show’s creator, Stuart McLean passed away from cancer. Stuart  was headed for treatment, but instead, he died within a very short time after this show was recorded. I started to tear up as I heard his voice, still so strong and full of life. His stories always made me smile. Sometimes they made me cry. His storytelling shoes are large. They will not be filled by me, but maybe someday someone will be able to, if not fill them, then walk beside them.

Telling stories is an important part of our lives. Sometimes stories are true. Sometimes we wish they were. We tell stories about the places we live, and the people we know there; the people we admire; the people we fear. We tell stories of the things people do, both the good things and the not so good. We’ve had a bit too much of the latter in the past few years. But there are so many people doing good things, even if they are drowned out in the news by the evil that some human beings inflict on others.

I hope that my stories of pandas bring light into your life. They make me happy to write and draw. I love every one of these pandas. I guess they are my imaginary friends. You can never have too many friends, imaginary or otherwise.

Peace and Pandas to us all…

Will Pinky save the day?

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!

Day 21: 31 Days of Pandas

I know I am way too MEAN, to have two stories with scary bits and a whole lot of suspense going on at the same time. Well, all I can say to that is…

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Ahem….

But! As promised, today, I bring you all the final chapters of It’s a WUnderful Life, so then you’ll only have ONE story to be worried and apprehensive about. Well, one panda story and the debacle in DC, where the GOP has just decided to take most of your money, your healthcare, and anything that is happy and give it to very wealthy people. Unless you are a very wealthy person yourself and then will you take me for a ride on your private airplane? Ahem.

But enough about the fall of Democracy and the desecration of the Constitution… Here’s the next episodes of It’s a WUnderful Life!!!

It's a Wonderful Life parody

Repeat after me, “It’s a story” ‘kay?

It's a Wonderful Life, parody

Everytime a bell rings, a panda gets a cuppycake.

It's a Wonderful Life, parody

Yay! The heartwarming schmoopy ending!

it's a wonderful life parody

A bear and his mom…together forever?

And now you know why Wu is such a well behaved, responsible panda, helpful and loving to all his little cousins! Unlike another panda we could name…

Speaking of Pinky, book editing and formatting is well underway for the next exciting Panda Chronicles Book release! I hope to have everything done by the end of the year, and then the uploading and approval process starts, so hopefully, I will have it ready by the beginning of February. Stay tuned for more news on The Pinky Defense: Book 8 of the Panda Chronicles!

I will also have a special ‘toon for Christmas Day, so don’t forget to check back here. I will have a very special Christmas carol for you to share with your family and friends! Huzzah!

Panda on as if your life depended on it!

Day 19: 31 Days of Pandas

A quick update

Several people contacted me today because they know I live in Western Washington. I was no where near the terrible accident that happened on the Seattle-Portland Amtrak route. (I’m not ducking blame, just wanted you to know that I am safely at home.) It must have been a horrifyingly scary event. The pictures send major chills up my spine. I know many people who travel the stretch of I-5 daily, as well as people (myself included) who regularly take the train from Seattle to Portland. My thoughts are with the people who were so terribly injured and frightened by this accident. The pictures are chilling.

Meanwhile, Mr. Wu learns what life would be like if there were no more baby pandas…

It's a Wonderful Life parody

What part of “you don’t exist” didn’t you get? Ha ha! I love that line!

it's a wonderful life parody

You won’t like this, Mr Wu!

It's a Wonderful Life Parody

Those darn cats! I really hated this part of “It’s a Wonderful Life” too.

Oh man! What is going to happen next????

Panda on!

Day 13: 31 days of Pandas & Episode 7 101 Bebe Pandas

As I compile this post, Alabama voters are going to the polls to decide whether they want to elect the #Trumple candidate or...GASP!!!! a DEMOCRAT!!!!! All I can say, is that with the moves toward voter suppression in black and Democratic districts, it is unclear if this will be a free and fair election. I only have one thing to say about this: If you have to cheat to win, it’s not really winning, is it?

But meanwhile, baby pandas are in peril! Let’s go to the next episode of…

101 Bebe Panda-Nations!

Inspector Panda has arrived! He’ll…um…solve everything!

And yes, we have used this joke before!

Be the Bear!

Day 12: 31 Days of Pandas

We’re not even halfway through the month, so there are many more pandas to come!

This is a good thing, because we need LOTS of distractions this month. Between the disaster tax bill (email or call your Congress folks and ask them to vote NO!!!) the slide into the darkest days of the year, and all the craziness in the news, we need all the laughs we can get.

On top of all the nonsense coming out of our nations capitol, recent news of the illness of one of my long time panda fans and supporters has been on my mind. ALS is a devastating disease for which there is no cure. If it seems strange to be concerned about someone I’ve never met in real life, consider this: the people who read my ‘toons here and in books, and who frequently comment here or in conversations on Twidder and Fezbook, have become real to me. They have become real friends.

I’ve gotten to know them through our conversations in these cyber meeting places. They share pictures and stories of their lives. They cheer me on in my various Kickstarter projects. They have embraced these funny panda characters that have sprung forth from my head and they believe in them. They believe in me.  I am so very honored and grateful that you come here and tell me that the day’s ‘toon lifted your spirits, or made you sad, or pushed you to the edge of your seat in anticipation of the next episode.

So, Sandy H, if you are reading today’s post, please know that I have been grateful for the time you’ve been with me. I’m glad you have your family and puppies close at hand to see you through this. You will be missed.

Meanwhile, Let’s Get Some Pandas Out Here…
