Maybe my favorite book in the entire known universe is The Phantom Tollbooth, by Norton Juster and illustrated by Jules Feiffer. It seems like a good idea to have Bikkie and Mister Poppee have an adventure that might “borrow” a bit of the storyline.
I hope the authors will forgive me.
Apologies for posting late today. There was a lot of cross hatching in today’s ‘toon.
Don’t forget to visit me on Substack to read the encore presentation of Six and Sebben’s naming day story, “Being Endangered is Such a Curse“!
Most of my faithful friends and readers here at The Panda Chronicles know that the real life Mei Xiang and Lun Lun are half sisters, sharing their dad, I believe. While Mei Xiang is the picture of responsible motherhood, I somehow always picture Lun Lun as the more flamboyant sister, who has taken on the persona of a southern belle, always sending her last cubbies, the somewhat…um…problematic Six and Sebben off to her sister’s house.
I mean, Meizzy has all these other bears and odd characters hanging out at the DC Panda House, so what does it matter if Lun Lun’s more …um…adventurous daughters are added to the mix, bless their hearts?
Things are about to get interesting down in Pandalanta! Are they ready for it? I guess we’ll see!

Be sure to check out things over at Substack! Six and Sebben are featured in honor of their 7th birthday!
Bears are laughing…all the way to the top of Half Dome in the fabled Yosemite National Park. But wait…don’t you need a permit to climb half Dome?
Bears: Permits? PERMITS??? We don’t need no stinking permits!!!
Naturally, ZooNooZ has sent their intrepid reporters to Yosemite to get the REAL story!
Yosemite might be where I first saw a video of bears behaving badly in cars. The ranger station has a parade of bad bears playing on an endless loop in the check in office, to remind people not to leave food in their cars overnight.
If you doubt Frank and Mikey, you can read about enterprising bears here.
Be the (snorf) Bear!
Bob T keep your friends close and your food closer Panda
So. Many. Bears in the NooZ!!!!! If it’s not bears in swimming pools, reports of bears climbing Half Dome in Yosemite National Park, (Really! More to come on this shocking story!)bears breaking into cars, it’s the top story of the day, the arrest of Hank the Tank!
Of course, ZooNooZ got the first interview!
well, I don’t know that we’ll be RIGHT back with more on Hank…I mean Henrietta’s story, but we will be back eventually!
As you know, it is Birthday Week in DC!
Monday was Bikkie’s 3rd birthday (where DOES the time go?) today is Bubba’s and of course, tomorrow is Pinky’s birthday. I’ve done birthday extravaganza posts over at Substack, so if you want to see what some of my favorite ‘toons for each of the bears are, head over to Substack to see!
